Congratulations, Kaliegh Ham!

Here is the combination gilt–power, structure, and an attractive profile. She is has a similar frame size to 9-1 with a level top and big center body. Excellent feet with wide-spread toes. Square base width and correct angles on all four legs. She is a daughter of King Indy’s dam and Bon Jovi’s dam is a littermate to Dead or Alive. There’s power in the pedigree and 9-3 would be an excellent breeding female (has a 7-6 underline).
