Bidding Info


This special female is a powerful foundation female with a sweet personality. She is still a strong producer even though she's hit mid-age. Her fiber is still soft and long enough to hand spin - I wear a knit hat made from her fiber just a couple years ago. Oh, did I say she had lasting fineness? Most definitely! At 10 years old Sophisticate still had an AFD less than 25 microns with an SD of 4.0 and CV of 16.3 and spin fineness of 23.1 microns (2014 histogram results).

Sophisticate is average size and maintains good body score while pregnant and nursing. She's only been at my farm for a couple years. I'm excited to see the cria she is expecting this year. I would not be offering her for sale if I didn't already have her son and daughter in my small herd. Even at her age Sophisticate has a playful nature, she still pronks with the weanlings and is always the first of the adult females to kick up her heels when she sees us at feeding time. She is a proven dam with ample milk suppy and she is very attentive to her cria.

She is bred to a beautiful white male with Snowmass bloodlines. Her daughter Wind Dancer sired by another white Snowmass line is similar to her her dam in color (medium brown) and super fine (17.9 micron at 11 months). I expect the same outcome, with hopefully more density as well.

Don't wait too long- I may decide to keep her! It's not too late to buy her and move her to your farm to get settled in before summer. Cria is due in early August.
