We just found out that our buck Larkstone SP Grand Design *B made the 2021 ADGA Elite Buck List! He's in the 96th percentile, with a Production/Type Index 2:1 of 156, which puts him in 19th place for the highest PTI2:1 of all Nigerian bucks.
Grand's sire, Sugar Moon O Sky Pilot +*B*S, also made the Elite buck list this year, and Grand's dam, SGCH Sugar Moon RB Mine By Design 3*M, made the Elite list once again (she's been on the Elite list since 2016).
