We consider our females to be the 'back bone' of our operation. As we are relatively small, every female counts, so they need to perform every year. We all search for the best put together female at sales, but as you can see it doesn't necessarily matter.
This page has been designed to show you our 'Consistency' at Vale View and how it can be the 'Key to YOUR Success.'
If you follow these bloodlines within our sale animals you should not be disappointed.

We have retained Kandy sons which have been VV Playboy, VV Wingman, VV Yes Man. Playboy has been our most consistent sire used, breeding us the likes of Ripper, Slasher, X-Man to name a few.
