Snowmass Matrix Majesty

Huacaya, Herdsire (Male), Proven, Light Brown
ARI# 31139731 | DOB: 7/31/2007
Snowmass Matrix Majesty was the Reserve Dark Herdsire of the Year award at the 2011 Futurity as well as the Fawn Champion at the 2010 Futurity and with good reason too. Since that time he has had several crops of crias born here at Cas-Cad-Nac and to say that he has been impactful in our breeding program, would be a gross understatement. In addition to multiple Championships and Judges' Choice awards (at both the 2014 AOA National Show and 2014 Futurity) his offspring have also combined to win ...

Description

We have a habit – good or bad, we will let the historic record make that call in the end – of hoarding members of certain lines in order to build up a genetic base and hedge our bets going forward. In the case of Moonraker, we also have three of his full sisters, Moonbeam, Luna Majesty, and Clair de Lune in our production herd as well as his dam, CCNF Moonlight (she a highly coveted member of the PPP Jesusa line as a daughter of Gold Sovereign). How powerful is that genetic line? The Elixir crias born to Moonbeam and Luna (genetically full siblings) were the female and male Judges' Choice winners at the 2018 Futurity. They also went on to win their respective Championships at the AOA National Fleece Show, where Valyria (the white female) bested her brother/cousin, Sovereign-Legacy (the fawn male) for the one and only Huacaya JC award. And all of that without a Lutz on the end of a lead line, so maybe (just maybe!) the fleeces have something going for them after all?

All of which goes to show why Moonraker is definitely going to be sticking around in some capacity at least. Though slightly more stocky than his older sister, Moonraker takes after Luna the most in terms of appearance and style, which is not a bad thing by any measure. Dense, fine, bright…you get the picture. At the risk of stating the obvious, if he didn’t bring something special to the table, we wouldn't be using him here in our program or offering him for outside stud service.

Update: Moonraker's first cria, CCNF Maid Marian was the Champion Fawn Female Huacaya at the 2020 AOA National Fleece Show!
