Hannaruh is, quite simply, one of the best gray females in the country. Just log on to ARI and take a look at her offspring. Every one of her cria has been a Color Champion, award winner, or an exceptional herdsire, including Painted Sky Apres Vous, Aussie Rockford and Aussie Colorado Dillinger. She is the grand-dam of Aussie Guns and Roses and Aussie .38 Special. So, if you are looking for those genetics, this is where they started. She is an amazing producer and I am very fortunate to hav...

Description

Joie de Vivre (French for "Joy of Life") is out of the incomparable Hannahruh, one of the best grey dams in the Country, and sired by the equally incomparable Mile High The Reverend Mister Black!

Joie de Vivre's fleece is simply exquisite. She has an elite fleece with tight bundling and a high frequency crimp style. She has a very soft handle and good staple length. She has excellent conformation and bite, with the elegant presence of her dam. She is a big girl with great bone. Joie de Vivre is easy to handle and a joy to show. She has placed very well at every show she has been in, with every judge commenting on the nice handle of her fleece. She is a proven dam with lots of milk, and an attentive mom.

In October 2017, Joie de Vivre delivered an out-of-this-world grey female cria, sired our 10x Grey Herdsire, Wilkinson! We knew this combination was going to rock, and boy did it ever! Wilkinson is the back-to-back National Color Champion, taking the highest grey male honors at AOA in both 2015 and 2016! Most recently, as a 3.5 year old, he took the Color Championship at the 2016 Alpaca Breeders Invitational in a very competitive group of greys, proving that even after having cria on the ground, he's still got it!

in 2019, Joie produced a uniquely colored DF female when bred to 23X Champion/2X Judge's Choice, Ringo Cloud, and we look forward to watching her develop! Such a dense, fine, soft fleece.
