Here is where it gets better: Can you name someone who cross a known sweater or a generic sweater, import or local - to the RADIO blood? Does FASTEST KILL, quick wins and good cutting ability shows up? Radio crosses to hatch and other bloodline performs good but not as good as a cross to a sweater blood. The Sweater Radio cross is getting known for its Fastest Kill reputation.
What is the relation of the Kelso blood in direct relation with the Radio in its infancy? Is Radio the “Good Inbred Source of the Sweater?”
A few old timer once narrated (not confirmed), that Mr Dink Fair when he borrowed Mr Carol Nesmith Sweater Broodcock used Mr Jumper’s most beautiful and most goldish looking, good station Kelso to breed those sweaters. What is the relation of of Jumper Kelso to Radio (Jumper/Brady). And as to why Mr Dink Fair never bred Radio? I visited Oklahoma 3 years ago and was informed by someone I look up to in breeding that Tom Dale have good Radio that he got from Dink Fair and as to why Dink did not breed them – I was told the narration was “it did not pass the physical aspect of beauty” that is the political explanation, in short – ugly.
The Middletons breeding the Roy Brady Radio, almost indentical with what Mr Brady has and had done a good job keeping the blood. A few southern pinoy breeders are now putting those Radio blood to what else? Sweaters.
Someone tried to cross Brady Radio to Mr Dink Fair army of sweaters – the possum, the 5k, the lawnmower, the Goldeboys -- and they like the results on the derbies.
I think that is enough spark to start this thread… let’s make it a healthy information…
