Bidding Info


Minka is 4th generation grey. She is a beautiful, solid light rose grey with stunning phenotype. She's inherited her sire, El Vasco's density and fleece character. El Vasco has retained fineness with age as well, at 10 his AFD is 23.6, wow!

On May 16, 2016, Minka had a gorgeous tux grey boy with exquisite fleece from 5x Champ MFI Tiger Blood! Minka is a great mom with lots of milk.

Minka's 2017 cria is a tux grey male, Westfall, with exceptional fleece from our 10x Champ grey herdsire, Wilkinson! This boy is going to be one to watch!

In 2019, Minka had a true black full sister to our outstanding male, Westfall, and she's every bit as dazzling as he is!
