Bidding Info


Skyline’s Tamba is a True Black daughter of our premier, DRG, multiple award-winning herdsire Patagonia’s Giovanni; her dam is Chase Tavern Silver Lupine, a MSG daughter of Silver Thunder. This breeding brought together some of the finest in East and West Coast genetics. Given her spectacular lineage, we weren’t surprised by Tamba’s silky handled dense fleece and we were thrilled when we opened up her cria fleece at one months age to discover she was a beautiful True Black color. Tamba has very correct conformation and style as well!

Tamba is a great mother. She delivers easily and has plentiful milk and good mothering skills. Her first cria, a beautiful Med. Fawn girl was out of PPeruvian Guellermo, an impressive Peruvian import. Tamba’s 2010 cria is out of our recently sold, Bay Black Herdsire, Skyline's Nairobi. We were very pleased with this young male, as he is dense, has bright crimpy fleece with a soft handle and long staple length. For 2011 we have bred Tamba to Skyline's Highlander, one of our up and coming new males. He is an Absolute Grandson, out of MKC Prince Jordan, and one of our top females, Nayla Gold. Highlander is very dense and very fine, and we are hoping for a Grey cria out of Tamba, given both of these animal's Grey backgrounds.

We have put some of our very solid foundation girls on the market as we are trying to reduce numbers. You won’t be disappointed with a purchase of Tamba as she is a great mom, and we think this current breeding will produce a very nice cria.
