Harvest Sun

Huacaya, Female, Proven, Medium Fawn, 5/8 Peruvian
ARI# 30420908 | DOB: 6/28/2006
Harvest was one of our first purchases. She was a maiden with a breeding to SM Nova's Black Knight III. Her first born is now one of our junior herdsires. Harvest is a gorgeous copper color with great presence and conformation. She is a little high strung and nervous so she was never shown on halter. However, she is a great production dam and mother to some of our very best. She will always be a favorite poster child because of her "don't fence me in" attitude and her wonderful curiosity. ...

Description


Dark Knight or "Deke" is an energetic male. His latest offspring include a True Black male and a beautiful Medium Silver Grey female. One look at his ARI certificate reveals his pedigree is full of sought after bloodlines: Casanova, Bueno, Drambuie, & Leon.

Right now we have more breeding males than we can continue to use. We need to reduce our numbers in order to continue quality herd management without needing to hire help. Therefore, we can reduce some prices and give you a nice price on a quality male. Deke's fiber is uniform across the blanket with a very soft handle. He is registered as Dark Brown, but was shown as a Bay Black yearling and took 2nd place. As his grey genetics moved in, we referred to him as an Indefinite Dark. However, his color change continued and he is now a Modern Dark Silver Grey! Deke is not a big boy (although he thinks he is!) We have chosen to breed him to some of our smaller females so as not to overload them with a large cria. His conformation, however, is nice and balanced. He would be a great starter male for new breeders. We would love to package him with one or two unrelated females to get your program underway. Contact us with your questions or to request fiber samples.
