2020 BIOPSY RESULTS:

79.3 /mm 2nd highest density in a gray male tested by Ian Watt as of 2020!

12.7:1 SP

Comments: Very good density with good uniformity both within and between each fiber population.

Holy Smoke is a name from a famous horse that we have patiently waited to use on the right male. Smoky was born while we were evacuating due to a fire, along with his color, genetics and stand out fleece he earned this privilege.

Smoky's sire has proven himself to be a maker of cha...

Description

Masquerada is the "grand dam" of our gray breeding program. We purchased her from Heatherbrook Farm in 2008 and have not regretted that one bit. She is strong, straight and squarely proportioned with a very proud presence. Her fiber is a bright, beautiful dark silver grey that gleams in the light. She has consistent character, excellent density and a soft, fine hand. She is the total package and her results in the show ring, including her two championships, confirm that fact.

Masquerada comes from impressive lineage, pulling black and grey genes from all four generations listed on her registration. Her dam and grand dam, both MSG, have continuously produced award winning grey offspring. Her sire, Caballero Andante, continues to produce champion offspring as well and, when bred to black, produces black 90% of the time.

Masquerada has had 5 cria, 3 gray and 1 black, and 1 brown -- all stunning! And now she is bred for a Fall 2019 cria by Snowmass Tezcatlipoca! We're excited!


We believe our success is in the success of our clients!!!
