Ike's advanced Judge's Choice fleece, which scored 87 points - puts him in a very very small class of elite classic gray herd sires.
And, in halter, he was awarded Color Champion at arguably the toughest halter show in the country, the Futurity.

Judged to be superior in quality, by senior judges, in both halter and fleece shows. In showing, This is the mark of an elite male.
And, in terms of Production - he's already p...

Bidding Info


Appeline hasn't wanted to get pregnant for the past few years - so she's unavailable at this time.
Here's hoping she changes her mind!

** AFD 17.7 with CV of 13 at 9 months of age
** Five Blue Ribbons and Two Championships
** The 2007 Brown National Fleece Champion

This little lady is one of the Very best. Super typey, a sweet little imp always in the middle of what's going on. And What a Fleece - I couldn't stop myself from putting my hands into it every chance I had after she was born - one of the Very Softest Handling fleeces I have Ever felt. Combine that with wonderful lock density and high frequency crimp - she's a winner.

Simply stunning is what the judge commented when giving her the National brown Fleece Color Championship in Louisville 2007. And now we can really see why we love this fleece - the combination of an AFD of 17.7 with a CV of 13 -
There's that Avatar Stamp - super fine with a Phenomenal CV.

At the 2007 Fall Festival Fleece Show Appeline also won blue in a class of 6 - the Championship going to her medium brown 1/2 sister, Kokopelli's Song Topeka, another Avatar daughter that has won numerous Championships.

In halter Appeline has won blue at the 2007 GWAS halter, and Reserve Champion at the 2008 SWRAS halter - and then won the Blue in the Bred & Owned yearling female class.

Appeline's first baby is a beautiful dark brown Black Icecapade daughter, Delphi's Brina.
Her second daughter, Manzanilla, was chosen for purchase and export to Europe.
Appeline's 2012 fawn Zeppelin daughter Deltana is amazing - with one of the best fleeces we've produced. Deltana was purchased by Bari Padgett and is being bred to Super Sonic - wow!

Appeline was then bred back to Zeppelin in hopes of another Deltana in 2014 - maybe in black? Sure enough! Her black daughter Zari is here and she is stunning.
Now to see what Appeline gives us from Ike!
