March 2012: "Ace" sired two lovely litters - one in Washington, and one here on the farm under Mishelle's kennel name of Horizons with her beautiful "Eve". We just completed temperament testing and the results were all that we had hoped for. All 11 of the EV3 puppies tested with highest marks for socialization instincts, retrieving instincts, sensitivity testing, and perseverance and food motivation. It was a very exciting test day for this first litter sired by "Ace". The majority of the litter are very large, however still have very well balanced conformation. They are beautiful blues, dark silvers, light apricots and creams. You can see the litter this month on the Standard Puppies page, and later at the bottom of "Eve"s" page. Exciting results all around.
"Ace" at 19 months - on a cold Fall day - very much a "teenager)
January 2012: "Ace" is owned by Bob & Krisina Seth, WA. He is available for stud service through Friendships and Horizons. He is the only "Sterling" son placed with breeding privileges. He is going to meet his sire's size and weight, and hopefully as he matures his settled "spirit" as well. "Eve" has been bred to "Ace" for a January 2012 litter. He should carry his sire's silver/blue gene and his dam's cream/apricot gene. Stud service is by private treaty only.
