Payday is exactly what we wanted out of pairing Hershey Kisses and HetlandCreek TT 8 Second Ride. PayDay has sired a few of our favorites. His daughter, Highland Ranch PD Alyeska was 6th out of 66 at the 2019 ADGA Nationals and Highland Ranch PD Soldotna just scored EEEE90 on LA in 2021. PayDay also sired our keeper buck out of GCH Almar Acres RK Idaho Girl - and Vegas Prize has already sired some really nice kids and we think these bloodlines will continue to move our herd along the path we're going.

We are absolutely THRILLED to announce the arrival of Hetlandcreek ZZ Shooting Star to Highland Ranch! Thank you to our friend Denise Hetland for the opportunity to own this amazing buck. "Shooter" is out of the 2019 ADGA National Show 1st place 3yr old, GCH Hetlandcreek HB Swan Harmonica VVEE90 6*M x Hetlandcreek Sharp Dressed Man *+B "ZZ". His daughter Hetlandcreek SS Avachinsky milked 1281lbs in her first lactation. We can't wait to see his first Highland Ranch kids in the Spring of 2022!

From Old Mountain Farm and Wood Bridge genetics - we are excited to introduce these lines into our herd. "Teach" has strong General Appearance like his dam (see her photos below - note that the breeder did not have any updated photos from this year, I just have a video from this Spring). Beautiful front end - from tight shoulders, elbows, straight front legs; nice rear leg angulation (difficult to see in his unclipped photo), nice high thurls, strong, level topline. We are excited to see what he throws!

We have long been a fan of Algedi Farm CK Seirene Song and when the chance came to bring a young buck into our herd with her genetics crossed with the strong production from Leisure Time, we said "Yes!". Thanks Kristine Struve-Hagen for breeding this nice buck. He has produced many nice kids for us and we have retained two of his sons and two beautiful daughters.
