We are no longer breeding whites and have no place for Surfrider in our program. He needs to go to a farm that will use him - and that can house him out of sight of the females, as he is definitely a fence pacer. His auction price reflects the fact that we can't house him away from the girls - and he's keeping the rest of the males riled up. Let him go to work for you this fall and the take the edge off! Surfrider is a big boy, but not difficult to handle - just completely fixated on the females.

Surfrider is a very strong macho with heavy bone and fiber with very good luster. His handle remains extremely pleasing at nearly seven years of age, as do his lock style and structure. He comes from one of the premier breeding programs in the country, and his pedigree includes standouts such as his sire Pucara The Duke ("the best suri male we have ever produced," according to the Pucara website) and his grandsires Pucara Kahuna, Pperuvian Cadete, and Pperuvian Amador. Surfrider was described by his breeders as "the only son of Pucara The Duke that we are releasing... The Duke is an important part of our breeding program, sharing the same mother as Kahuna but by our top gun stud Pucara Allegro. Allegro has put 39 champions into the Aussie show ring of which 17 have won Best in Show. The essence is that Surfrider is also the son of a Pucara Kahuna daughter. That daughter's mother (Surfrider's grandmother) is the maker of champions."

Surfrider placed in the top three at some of the most prestigious shows in the country as a juvenile, after which he was bought by renowned judge Tim Lavan to be a cornerstone of the Chase Tavern breeding program. Situations change, though, and when the Lavans sold their herd, we were delighted to acquire Surfrider. We have used him on several females, but have decided to refocus our breeding on colored animals at this point, and we are therefore offering Surfrider for sale as well as stud. He is eager to breed and generally easy to handle, although very focused on his girls! This is a chance to acquire some of the "winningest" genetics out there at a very reasonable price.
