|Joshua was sold as a kid to a nearby herd when Explorer was still alive. After Explorer died, I tried for two breeding seasons to breed his dam July artificially to Explorer to produce kids that would be full brothers and sisters to GCH Extravaganza LA EX92 and Jiffypop LA VG88. When I was offered an opportunity to buy him back, I jumped at it. He is a carbon copy of his sire, Explorer, in fact, for the first month he was home, I had to do a double take every morning when I walked out and saw him. I was thrilled with his appraisal score of EX 90 this summer. Tragically, Joshua died unexpectedly in December of 2004. I have very little semen, and very few daughters. I will retain a daughter from each of the does bred to him this year.
