Coming from the best of Kastdemur's Nubians not long before the Nubian herd dispersal High Tide is a special boy. He has consistently produced very dairy daughters with flat bone and open ribbed while also excelling in general appearance. They are long, tall, level and stand on correct feet and legs. His pedigree is also filled with Crown Ambassador and Full Service line breedings!
High Tide has some of the best of Kastdemur's herd in his pedigree.
