Bidding Info


One of our ranch hands met Summer and actually stopped what she was doing to gawk at her. She is tall, elegant, and graceful and carries herself with majesty! Her son Summer Sundance is winning fleece awards like you wouldn't believe!

In April 2019, Summer gave birth to a beautiful bay black male by Aussie .38 Special! He is stocky and impressive and absolutely the total package.

She is the producer of champions!
