Description

This girl is at the top of her class! Open up that fleece and it is simply stunning! It has a tight crimp style that is fine and extremely uniform with excellent definition and brightness. Her fiber is dense with a long staple. This is one that will break my heart to sell...she's one of our best and sweetest.

The judge had to make a "sandwich" to compare Charice to the blue ribbon winner before making her final decision at VAOBA. It was that close --- and Charice got 2nd place at the stiff 2014 VAOBA show as the youngest in her class. WP Cora Cora is the dynamo that beat her out -- she has at least 4 banners and 6 blues from her first show season. At 2014 MABA, Charice placed 3rd right behind the Color and Reserve Color Champions!

Charice is foundation material all the way. Charice is a PHENOMENAL mother. With her first cria, Janusz, she knew just what to do. This little boy came into this world strong and quick --- he was on his feet in less than 15 minutes and nursing in less than an hour. Janusz is out of WP Verticase's Vector, a fine light brown herdsire out of Quechua's Verticase and Snowmass Nova's Cayara, and he is doing well in our show string.

Charice will be bred Spring 2018 to 2AF Peruvian Zeus, a sire that typically throws the color of dam, so we are expecting a grey from this breeding. Zeus is a medium fawn herdsire who's first crop of offspring to hit the show ring received 1st Place, Color Champion and went on to Judges Choice in BROWN! And Zeus' 2nd offspring received 1st Place, Color Champion and went on to Judges Choice in White, followed by many other Judges Choice banners AND the AOA National Light Supreme Champion! That 2017 AOA National Supreme Champ is owned by Man in the Moon Farm -- Peruvian Ganymede!!!

We are willing to take $1000 off without this breeding if you prefer to breed her to your own stud, but we feel she is already priced well below her true value. (Not that it's always indicative...but we purchased her for quite a lot more and she's proven her value in the ring, in her retained fleece characteristics, and in her offspring). Additional photos and fleece samples available for serious inquirers.
