ARI# 32315127 | DOB: 5/3/2012

Tupelo Honey was the name we reserved for a spectacular fawn suri female cria from our breeding program. Who knew we would honor our first born female with this special designation?

As she developed, Tupelo gave us every reason to believe she will live up to our expectations. Her solid yet feminine frame is draped with fine, dense and lustrous pencil locks. She is the picture of a "Showgirl."

Lingering fineness genes

Bidding Info

Description

THERE IS NOTHING BASIC ABOUT THIS BLACK!

Sapphire is a knockout daughter of Psylent Knight (#30469167). She exhibits many of his characteristics…a dense beautiful, lustrous fleece with consistent locks covering a solid and balanced frame.

If you are a serious suri breeder with the goal to produce lingering fineness you owe it to your program to take a good look at what Sapphire and her maternal genetics bring to the table.

*Sapphire's dam, Tupelo Honey, is in the top 1% in the 2016 AFD EPD's...ranking 58 out of 8966

**Sapphire's grand dam, Derwydd Greystone's Kanilla, is in the top 1% in the 2016 AFD EPD's...ranking 56 out of 8966.

***Sapphire's great grand dam, HHSF Peruvian Patentia, is in the top 1% in three 2016 EPD's...ranking 12 out of 8966 in AFD, 27 out of 8966 in SF, and ranking 19 out of 8966 in %F>30

So there you have it! A gorgeous true black suri female with strong genetics that could lead to extreme fineness in her progeny and champion wins in the showring.

** We cut Sapphire's show experiences short because she didn't handle the stress of the showing well. We felt it was in the best interest of her health to not continue putting her in stressful situations.
