Golden Thunder was the most-talked-about lot offered in the 2011 AOBA National Auction, and one look will tell you why. With his rich, dense, abundant fleece on a solid frame, strong typey head, stately bearing and air of confidence, Thunder definitely stands out in a crowd.

Bidding Info


This beautiful dark-brown champion has proven genetics, awesome fiber stats, and that special je ne sais quoi that every great herdsire should have.

Snow Diamond THUNDER BAY is a uniform dark brown, accented by black points on his ears, muzzle and feet. His dense fleece is also very fine, which helps to explain the unbelievably soft hand. His crimp starts at the skin and continues to the tip, and it holds up beautifully throughout the fleece.

Thunder Bay's fiber stats are excellent (see chart below).

Thunder Bay is out of Loretta, a fine, amazingly uniform light-brown female that has given us for outstanding crias.

Thunder Bay's sire is 13X Champion, Judges Choice and Get of Sire winner, Sunset Hills Golden Thunder, whose offspring (including Thunder Bay) have been busy this year taking home the purple.

Thunder Bay is now working at Snow Diamond, happily settling his first females.
