|Atlantis was beautiful when I pulled him out of the shipping crate and he has just gotten more and more
attractive the older he gets. He has a look that brings to mind the word "extreme"... as he is extremely tall,
long, smooth, and stylish. His biggest asset is his striking angularity and openness, smoothness of blending,
sharpness and upstandingness, as well as plenty of length and stretch. He is extremely wide and high into
the escutcheon and has a long, wide, flat rump.
I am "extremely" pleased with my Atlantis kids. They all show improved dairyness with long, lean necks,
flatness and length of bone, and sharpness at the withers. I see improved general appearance with
smoothness of blending in the front end and width and length of rump, and open, arched escutcheons.
I have used Atlantis on many different kinds of does and love the improvements he is making on them all.
Atlantis sired the 2nd place Junior Get of Sire at both the 2010 and 2011 ADGA National Shows.
Atlantis has an outstanding Nubian pedigree that combines both excellent type and production into one
package. Atlantis' dam SGCH Wingwood Farm Tim Aminance 1*M EX92 EEEE has been a favorite doe in
Karen's herd since she was a first freshener and continues to do well. "Amina" is a tall, long, dairy,
hard-working doe who seems to be the epitome of what a modern Nubian is all about. Amina was the 4th pl 2
Yr Old at the 2009 ADGA Nationals and Reserve Grand Champion milker at the 2009 California State Fair
(under the 2-time National Champion Temerity) and Timothy was named Premier Sire. After coming back
from being uneven early in the year, Amina was 1st place at 2011 CA St Fair where Tactician was named
Premier Sire. Amina made her milk star on test as a yearling and scored a 91 as a 2yr old and 92 as a 4 yr
old. She was 4th pl 5-6 Yr Old at the 2012 ADGA National Show. As a tie to my own bloodlines, Amina is
bringing Dr Luke and Tamerlane into her extended pedigree as well.
In 2012, Atlantis' paternal sister SGCH Wingwood Farm TAC Sasha was named ADGA National Champion
and helped Tactitian win 2012 ADGA National Show Premier Sire!
On his sire's side, Atlantis brings in the familiar blood of SG ++*B Kastdemur's LH Full Service EX91 who has
been one of the most influential Nubian bucks in the recent past decade who sired the 2nd pl Senior Get of
Sire at 2006 Nationals. Atlantis is gaining the power, strength of general appearance and outstanding
mammary attachment from his sire's side and the beauty, dairy character, and will to milk in his dam's side.
This is a exciting combination that I am thrilled to be working with!
I had been wanting to add another Wingwood buck to the herd for a long time as my nubians go back to
Wingwood in generations past through AI using +*B Wingwood Farm Blue Tamoon. GCH Hoanbu Tamoon
Charm Galilea 2*M VG88 and her full brother *B Hoanbu Tamoon Broad Stripes were Tamoon progeny.
Galilea founded my "G" dam line and Broad Stripes is the sire to SGCH Hoanbu Stripes Caravelle Misty 1*M
EX90, the dam to SGCH Hoanbu Status Misty Moonlight 2*M EX91.
Atlantis semen is available from Hoanbu exclusively!
