Bidding Info


2017 AOA National Fleece - Reserve Champion black female.
2018 AOA National Fleece - Color Champion black female!

Shown twice in halter here, Risa was awarded a 6th place ribbon at the 2017 Nationals at just over 6 months of age. The competition was extreme, as was her behavior, lol.
Then 7 weeks later, Peter Kennedy, (renowned breeder of blacks himself), awarded her the BLUE in another tough class of 7 at GWAS, which included several of the girls that had placed above her at Nationals. We think her additional fleece growth, plus some additional halter training, (she is very sweet and smart) allowed her to show her true colors.
Peter Loved her fleece, and you can see why.
And then after Risa went to her new home with Deb Galway, she brought home a RC in halter as well.

She is slick, dense and crimpy - fine - Handle Handle Handle!
From 2 classic grey parents - (Check out her dad's page!)
almost full Peruvian -
She'll fit into any color program you have - and she has the genetics to improve it.

Her name is Risa (think Lisa with an "R"), which means laughter, and she sure puts a smile on our faces.
We can't stop feeling her bright bright bright silky fleece.
Yeah, I know bright and lustrous are redundant (unless you're a suri breeder, wink!) -
but this little one just begs for more adjectives.
Beautiful head, perfect bite.

She is growing into an absolutely wonderful young lady -
She will be a superb producer for a black or grey program.
I really want to keep this girl - but I will be so happy for the lucky buyer.
