Bidding Info

Description

Snowmass Vicuna Sunset XX, or "Sunny" as we call her, is a very well put together dark brown female out of Snowmass Black Out! Her dam is Snowmass Vicuna Sunrise, who brings lines in from Snowmass XXXtreme, Snowmass Andean Bronze, and Peruvian Hemingway. She has a very nice handle to her fine fleece, and a very good staple length (>4") at 5 years old. She has a beautiful consistent color with black points and excellent confirmation.

We did place Sunny in a pen with Man in the Moon's Peruvian Ganymede the week of June 18, 2017, when we were trying to get him interested in breeding. We weren't aware that he had shown any interest; however, due to subsequent behavior testing and based on a progesterone test in early December (level of 4.1 -- too high for a retained CL), we're wondering if it worked. We'll have her ultra-sounded sometime in March to confirm. We're happy to have this done prior to then upon request.

Her service sire, Ganymede, is the 2017 AOA National Supreme Champion. He is an elite white that Championed in every show he attended during the 2016-2017 Show Season, bringing home 12 Banners and 4 Judges Choice Banners...He is an amazing boy -- his show record and his skin biopsy results indicate that he possesses strong and desirable fiber traits that he's likely to pass to his offspring. Lasting fineness, uniformity of micron, amazing crimp and character will be the result of this breeding. I am sure.

Sunny is primarily Peruvian. We found an Australian herdsire with no additional info behind him 5 generations back. We also found a dam 5 generations back with Chilean heritage. Everyone else in her pedigree is Peruvian.
