Like father like daughter! This beautiful Champion girl is sired by 4 x Champion and 2 x Judges Choice winner Chakotah's Wynuna. Wynua is also in the top 1% for the 2016 EPD program!

Description

Indi is a proven sire with his first cria being a dark fawn super chunk with lots of gloriously lusterous fleece!

This young male has a lot going for him! He is a Judges Choice winner at one of the most prestigious shows in the country, The Suri Network and boast 8 Championships and
16 blues.

We bred Indi's Dam to Aero Ranch's Auguste Piccard, one of the Last Inca sons still breeding, hoping to get exactly what we got... Indi! His luster is off the charts, his hand amazing, and his regrowth remarkable. We cannot say enough about this future herdsire.

He has a remarkably soft handle! And even in the dustiness of late summer, he was still lustrous with amazing lock structure! He makes a great impression!

We are looking for the right ranch who value these traits to partner with us with this beautiful male. You won't regret it!
