At Stud: Ironweed EZ Money at Grace Farms RN SH MH
“Red” was born 7/5/2009. He is out of AFC-FC Money Talks II X Ironweed Boom Boom Butterfly MH. He passed his first AKC Master test after 4 months of training by Terry Price of SC. He is a fox red with soft brown eyes, a big double coat which is quite unusual for a field bred Labrador. Red is a great hunting dog land or water, with a keen nose, great marking skill, a never quit attitude, full of go, and a great soft mouth with the birds. He is a house dog and hunting companion.
Red’s sire is the famous fox red FC Money Talks II whose reputation speaks for itself. Red’s mom (Ironweed’s Boom Boom Butterfly bred by Nancy Eisaman) holds the record for the most Master Hunter titled progeny produced by one dam in AKC (13!) Red has produced 5 healthy litters of puppies to five yellow females naturally and had about 50% of his yellow kids being some shade of fox red.
Red has frozen semen stored at ZOETIS cryobank. We had to preserve his DNA because of his pedigree, health, talent, soundness and adherence to the AKC Labrador Retriever standard as written (interpreted by field enthusiasts). Were anything to prevent a natural breeding, we have the collected straws as a backup plan for the worried breeder.
His service is $1500.00 for each frozen straw shipped to your repro vet. ( Just one needed when progesterone testing and using intra-uterine insertion). Visiting gals can be boarded with us (bred every other day) if a natural breeding is desired for 2500.00. Progesterone testing will be the responsibility of the breeder.
NEW! We have our first “AKC Achiever Dog” (Certificate issued by the AKC) Grace Farms Lightning Bolt Right Here CGC, TKI, RATM, RA, JH (born out of a GCH sired MH X and our own avid hunting dog: Grace Farms Augustus Plus JH)
Fonzie has earned 5 titles in Barn hunt, 2 in Trick dog events, 2 in Rally Obedience, 1 in Hunt Testing, 1 Conformation Certificate, 1 Canine Good Citizen title and a “Lab for all Reasons” medal from the Lab Club of America.
Born 1/16/16 “The Fonz” is training for his CD, RE, SH, and NA. He has soft brown eyes, double coat with no retention of water, great marking, great work ethic, and the highest level of versatility and willingness seen in our 24 years of breeding the Grace Farms line which originated with the Liberty Labrador line (Nancy Opie) which goes back to FC Chief Black Feather line (brother of FC Super Chief)
Fonzie sired his first beautiful litter of black and yellows this year (2018). Fonzi has OFA EXCELLENT hips, OFA NORMAL elbows, OFA clear eyes. (update due September) He is clear of genetic diseases including EIC, PRA, CNM, by parentage. He will be tested officially for CHIC once we gather his DNA and send it in.
His service at this time will be 1000.00/ available for natural breedings only.
