I know, I know - we do Color!
But we couldn't help ourselves.

Two reasons -
1) Check out this fleece - - - And it isn't just pretty,
She has great fineness, And she has the fleece weight too.
2) Check out her pedigree -
Her daddy is Black Pinot Noir - and mom, a Camillio daughter, is loaded with color too.

How often do the winners of the best white classes have black daddies? I've seen it a time or two -
and as we improve our colors it happens more and more frequently.
This lady o...

Ike is available for purchase - Please inquire.

Ike has been judged to be superior in quality, by senior judges, in both 'full fleece halter' classes, and in fleece shows. In terms of showing, we feel this is the true mark of an elite male.
He has received some of the most prized awards attainable in halter shows (where he is judged for both conformation and fleece); and then when his fleece alone competes with all comers, that fleece again receives the very highest of commendations. ...

Bidding Info


Our top Zeppelin daughter, Zepeline.
Look at her fleece - she's her daddy's girl -
though following in mommy's footsteps wouldn't be a bad thing either.
Her mom Abilene is a white, rockstar show girl - having beaten some of the best of the best in that most competitive of colors; which is especially impressive when considering that she has a black dad and a dark fawn mom.
Zepeline's full brother is a gorgeous, black, 2X champion herd sire in Canada.
Her mother and father are of very rare quality; and Zepeline didn't miss out on any of the good stuff.
Her first histogram results from 2014: AFD 15.4; SD 3.3; CV 21.4
2016 shearing: AFD 18.9; SD 4.2; CV 22.5; >30 = 2.0%
And at 4 years old (May 25th, 2017): AFD 19.83; SD 4.42; CV 22.28; >30 = 2.9 %

Zepeline is an interesting taupey color - she's showing her daddy's modern grey tendencies.
She's officially a DRG, per the AOA 2017 National fleece show. Entered as an Indefinite Dark, they switched her to the Dark Rose Grey class. Awarded 3rd place - she was given 19 out of 20 points for fineness and handle, and extremely nice scores overall. I'm guessing it must have been a very nice class indeed! Update: Yup - the two that placed above her were a nine time champion, and a three time Champion (and one of those 3 banners was from the Futurity). We are very pleased with Zepeline.

And we love her Ike son! "'Zackly" is exactly wonderful. Straight, Strong, Super Soft, Bright and Crimpy - what a wonderful cria, he's super typey like his daddy.
And Zeppeline took to being a mom like a duck to water. From delivery, bonding, nursing and yes, she sure has lots of milk.
