Double "O" Good is proud to announce the purchase of Snowmass Matrix for $675,000 from Julie & Don Skinner.
SNOWMASS MATRIX IS THE FINEST FLEECED; HIGHEST CURVATURE QUECHUA SON STANDING IN THE WORLD.
Snowmass Matrix is truly one in a million. The fact is this stud has the Premier genetics for high curvature and ultimate fineness.
He is a compact robust and well proportioned stud, perfect overall score in frame, bite, body, and reproductive anatomy. He has a fleece that extends its superior qualities over his entire frame.
WITH ONLY 11 ENTRIES HE TOOK RESERVE HERDSIRE OF THE YEAR IN US FUTURITY 2008 IN BOTH LIGHT AND COLOR.
THE CONSISTENCY OF EXCELLENCE IN HIS PROGENY IS BEYOND REFUTE.
Matrix has what we call a Merino x Vicuna style of crimp. He has a bit more organization in the expression of crimp than a true vicuna but a very high frequency of crimp indicative in the vicuna qualities. Most importantly this stud exhibits an extreme fineness, brightness, and consistency of fineness which is seen in the extension into extremities(hip, belly, shoulder neck and head). He has held these qualities as he has aged which is exactly what we are looking and breeding for.
