While it wasn't out intention to keep him, Wolfsbane is a great addition to our herd sire line up. Excelling in general appearance with a level topline, smoothly blended and strong front end and very correct feet and legs. He is everything I expected from this breeding and more. His littermate Hops N Lops Wookiee 3*M EX90 has also turned into a powerful, correct doe following a similar style of their dam GCH Hops N Lops Wysteria 2*M EX91. Both Wookiee and Wolfsbane have also proven to produce that in their own offspring.
Wolfsbane had quite the pedigree with his dam being our well known doe, Wysteria. She has placed at both ADGA National Shows she has attended along with impressive, level lactations. Bane's sire Skywlkr was a last minute addition, but we really like the combination of structural correctness and productivity so a son of him and Wysteria wasn't a hard choice to retain. His full sister Secrets was the 2018 ADGA National Show Total Performer and has many National Show class placements over the years. Both his dam and full sister have made the Top Ten list.
His first group of kids have been extremely impressive. They are so consistent in width of rump and rear leg set. Wolfsbane now has worked in a few other herds and had been moving west, but are excited to see his daughters in other herds and use him in the future via AI. We also are working with a very closely related new herd sire, *B Hops N Lops Rule the Galaxy.
