Xanadu P Descant was Reserve Color Champion at GWAS at 6 months and 4 days of age. Showing as a yearling just days after his first birthday he was Color Champion at ABR Fall Fest and AOK Blastoff. ABR Fall Fest Judge Ken Hibbits said of Descant: " I kept sorting back to him with that staple length, fineness, brightness, architecture, a superior fleece". Descant was half the age of the Reserve Champion according to the Judge "the fleece did it".

ARI# 32843606 | DOB: 8/21/2014
Victory's fleece has come in with very nice and her conformation is great. Judge Sharon Loner at AOK Blastoff said "she excels in density, staple, structure and hand". Her conformation was not quite as good as 1st. We are confident she will produce great offspring consistent with her heritage of Accoyo Express, Mile High and Snowmass Matrix.

2017 brings FIR SCARLETT a big beautiful bay black female sired by Snowmass Golden Sentry who is a multichampion as a yearling.

Description

AJ is very well conformed bright white out of our FIR Indy's Victory Lap and our multiChampion Xanadu P Descant. AJ has a bright white, fine, uniform, well organized fleece. One look at his pedigree and you will see AJ will make a great herdsire, Matrix Rose, Accoyo Express and Elite Maximus. AJ's first show was at AOA Nationals he just made it turning 6 months of age the day before the show started. He placed 4th in a very competitive white juvi class, we are looking forward to seeing him develop and continue his show career. Recently he took a 2nd place ribbon in halter at GWAS. We are pleased with his show career considering he is showing in white classes with tons of fawn and brown in his background.
