Drop-Dead Gorgeous!

One of our ranch hands met Summer and actually stopped what she was doing to gawk at her. She is tall, elegant, and graceful and carries herself with majesty! Her son Summer Sundance is winning fleece awards like you wouldn't believe!

In April 2019, Summer gave birth to a beautiful bay black male by Aussie .38 Special! He is stocky and impressive and absolutely the total package.

She is the producer of champions!

We believe our success is in the success of our clients!!!

How many gray herdsires are out there who have produced offspring winning over 80 BANNERS, over 160 BLUE RIBBONS, and still producing CHAMPIONS?

Orlando Cloud is a stunning male who has without a doubt helped boost the quality of gray huacayas to new heights. So often a male shines for a few years, and then is overtaken by higher quality. Not so with Orlando. In 2008 his offspring began winning top honors, and since then...

Bidding Info


With a rockstar sire and dam like hers, who wouldn't be excited about Mustang Sally? Her mother has continuously produced champions, and continues to do so even as she reaches her teens!

Sally is sugar and spice and everything nice with a lovely ewok face and rich gingerbread color! Her fiber makes lovely, richly-colored yarn.

We believe our success is in the success of our clients!!!
