Bidding Info


Brokered for a ranch in New Hampshire!

Isabel is a beautiful female in every respect. She is compact in build, with perfect conformation on a square frame. She has very good substance of bone and good coverage. Her head is beautiful and typey, with a very full topknot. She is a very playful girl, with a lot of personality, but not at all aggressive or forward.

Her best feature, though, is her fleece. This is a truly dense, truly FINE female -- lasting fine. I apparently neglected to run a 2017 histogram on her but this is definitely a <20 AFD fleece with excellent uniformity, making for a super, super soft handle. She has great crimp structure and, again -- superior density. There are plenty of white fibers in this fleece -- not enough to quality as a true roan, in my book, but enough to suggest that she should have a much better chance at producing grey than the average solid brown female.

Her grey sire helps this as well. Isabel has a very outcrossed pedigree, unrelated to most of the "big names" of today in both light and color -- but it clearly works. This is not just a nice female, but a truly superlative, very high-quality gal.
