May 4, 2012: We are thrilled to announce our new partnership with the Padgett family of A Paca Fun Farm on our newly minted 2-time Judges’ Choice winner (NAAS & Futurity), CCNF Elixir!
We have known and admired the Padgetts and their breeding program for many years now and it has become almost tradition to spend an hour or so each spring and fall looking over one another’s best new animals whenever we first see each other at shows after many months apart. Full credit to Neil and Bari, by the way, for identifying Elixir as one to watch over a month ago before the young guy had even stepped into his first show ring in Springfield. Elixir will be spending the summer and early fall here at his birth farm before transitioning to his second home in Maryland come mid to late October and most likely continuing on the southern show circuit long after CCNF’s show season ends with the Empire Extravaganza.
The son of 2-time Futurity Herdsire of the Year (2010 & 2011), Snowmass Elite Legend and multi Champion dam, CCNF Ascension (a beige CCNF Archangel daughter), we are eager to see what this elite future Herdsire will do when his genetics are introduced into the Padgett’s herd of amazing grey and black females. We imagine that Neil, Jo, and Bari are pretty interested to see what will happen as well!
