When we chose to introduce Zealous into the breeding program, we were looking to add the style, breed character, and elegance, as well as the longevity that we've seen in the Zen lines.  We love his dam, Zesty, for her striking general appearance, and beautiful, lasting, mammary sytem.  Zesty was 7th place Aged Doe at the 2015 ADGA National.  Combine the assets of the Zen line with the production and beautiful mammary systems we have seen over the years from both Breakaway and Sonset, and we feel we have a pretty special young buck in Zealous.

Zealous is a very growthy, robust buck, with great uphill stature, a gorgeous front end,  incredible strength of bone, width throughout, and depth of body.  He reminds me very much of a baby Sonset. The set to his rear legs, both from the rear and when viewed from the side are near ideal. As expected, his breed character is outstanding.

We were absolutely thrilled when Karen offered to lease us Tao for the fall 2014-2016 breeding season, and of course we jumped on the opportunity to introduce such proven, long admired genetics into our herd!  

**UPDATE** Tao sired the 1st place 3 year old, with Reserve Best Udder and was 2nd place Senior Get of Sire at the 2015 ADGA National Show!!
