Iron-Rod JLS Sullivan

DOB: 4-27-03
Color: Light red chamoise, black trim


Sire: Iron-Rod John L. Sullivan HES 6mos 88.75, '95 All-American Alpine Yearling Buck
     SS: CH Iron-Rod The Bold Tartan LA 90 (EEE)
     SD: GCH Iron Rod Rev Sutra *M LA 91 (VEEE)

Dam: CH The Iron Rod TH Sigourney LA 91 (VEEE)
     DS: Iron-Rod Clare's Thegn LA 82 (AEE)
     DD: Iron-Rod Super Thistle

Linear Appraisal:
3-02 91 (EEE), 5-04 91 (EEE), E in head shoulder assembly, front & rear legs, back and rump (all others V), 50 in stature.

In GCH Sutra's lifetime she had four exceptional sons, GCH++*B Supersonic, Spitfire, GCH ++*B GCH Sundowner, and John L. Sullivan

Supersonic and Sundowner lived long, productive lives, garnering numerous awards and siring many famous progeny. Spitfire was two when he died of urethral blockage. Every one of his daughters has appraised FS 90-91 with E mammaries. His son, CH Iron-Rod The Bold Tartan, FS 90(EEE), also has sired many daughters scoring EX with E mammaries.

Sullivan, is tall, long bodied, level, and correct. Shown as a 4-year-old, he was 1X GCH, 2x 1st, 2x 2nd. He now has 2 GCH legs.

Sullivan's sire, John L. Sullivan, was a gift. He knew from birth he was handsome and so did judges. At two months old he was Best Junior Buck. In his first year, he was shown 7X, being 5X RGCH, 2x 1st. Early in the spring of his second year, a rogue Rottweiler ran him down, killing him in a horrible battle. Our grief has been ongoing these many years. His littermate sister, Sumatra, grew and appraised LA 90 (VEEE). She also died young. Stung by these misfortunes, I shied away from using this line.

In 2003 I recanted and bred gorgeously uddered Sigourney to John L. Sullivan. The result was a whopping 15-lb. buckling we named after his sire.
