Description

Be the first to get a cria from Majestic's a Man Among Men. Cria is due this summer and the cria is destined to be an amazing dam or herd sire for your breeding program. River Sahara has it all. She has an elite fleece, she has an ideal phenotype and coming from Hemingway's Bogart's genetics she will have the Histogram and E.P.D. values to match the rest. Bogart gives all his progeny improved fleece, genetics, and phenotype. Bogie will also give Sahara what he is truly known for and that is longevity of fineness.

Sahara has grown an amazing fleece in her first year. Her Yearling Fleece weighed in at 6.4 lbs. Her fleece is luxurious with soft handle you can't believe. Her yearling fleece weight was 5.3 lbs. She has uniformity of character and her architecture is better over her hip and shoulder than even her blanket. She carries this architecture into her neck and flank.

River’s Sahara brings world class fineness on her top side and density on the bottom. Blending quality genetics directed toward optimum fleece character in every trait. Sahara’s fineness genetics are from grand sire Peruvian Hemingway and sire Hemingway’s Bogart. Sahara’s service sire is Majestic’s A Man Among Men, son of the 2016 Herd sire of the Year, Jeremiah’s Peruvian Jumanji, and full brother to Majestic’s A Wanted Man, top seller at the 2016 Futurity Auction. “Man”, as we call him, is a multi-champion in his own right, with four color championships, including 2017 AOA Nationals 2nd only to the supreme champion of that year. Also color champion in the 2016 Futurity. This breeding pair will bring phenomenal fleece character to Sahara’s cria. Sire Hemingway’s Bogart, other contribution to Sahara fleece is longevity of fleece quality. Hemingway’s Bogart’s fleece values at age 16 is AFD of 22 microns, with a SD of 4.1 and CV of 18. Sahara also has very respectable EPD trait values. Seven EPD trait categories are in the top 10 percent, AFD, SDAFD, SF, %F>30, %M, MC & SDMC.

2017 Histogram Values for Sahara are: AFD 18.4, SD 3.5, CV 19.4, %F>30 0.8%. We took Bogart's fleece he produced at age 16 the the Snow Diamond Auction and the most common response was "Wow, he is really 16?" Bogie's fleece amazed everyone, he is still fine, uniform, and has a luxurious handle. His only age related fault was staple length.


Sahara is a big girl with lots of bone. She has an ideal phenotype. All of which should make for easy birthing. Her dam Summer as well as all our Bogie girls, have had many cria, thety produces good sized cria and lots of nourishment.

Sahara's superior lineage is evident in her respectable E.P.D. values.
