ARI# 30339323 | DOB: 5/28/2009
Snowmass Matrix Cashmina is the very treasured daughter of a prized light fawn Snowmass female, Snowmass Cashmina who sold for a pretty penny at the Making of Champions Auction. Her sire is the living legend, Snowmass Matrix. Cashmina carries the perfect conformation, uniformity and density of fleece, and presence of her illustrious sire. Her first cria has "Snowmass" written all over him--that presence and conformation and lovely fleece!

Cashmina had a gorgeous white male cria in early ...

Bidding Info


Well, what else would you name the son of Snowmass Matrix CASHmina and Snowmass SEVEN BELOW??

Our "Cold Cash" is a BRIGHT white male with a sturdy and balanced frame, covered with dense, fine bundles of fleece. He has lovely consistency of fleece architecture from his hips to his chest, and down towards the belly. This is borne out by his incredible EPDs that have remained consistently (almost boringly) outstanding for 4 years. His sire, Snowmass Seven Below was Julie Skinner's "not-so-secret weapon" for consistency, and Cold Cash is proof of that point!

You wanna talk retained fineness? His AFD is 19.8 at almost 7 years of age. SDAFD is 3.2 with Cov 16.4 and only 0.9%>30! Talk about uniformity of micron!!

His Pedigree is unrivaled: His dam is a Matrix daughter out of a Legacy/XXXtreme bloodline. On his sire's side there is a lineup of Herdsires of the Year: his sire is Herdsire of the Year Snowmass Seven Below, who is also a son of Herdsire of the Year Snowmass Sub Zero, with Accoyocusani and other notables in his bloodlines. Seven Below was one of Snowmass' top herdsires, and he is considered their "secret weapon" for passing on uniformity of micron and fleece architecture.

Cold Cash had an exceptional introduction to the show ring, winning a blue ribbon and then Reserve Banner of 19 entries at the California Classic. And see how well he did as a yearling!

We had to hold back on breeding on our farm for a few years, but Cash's first cria is gorgeous!! We are still breeding very selectively, but Cash is tops on our list. I'd like to get a few more crias out of him to prove what he can do, so we have a very low introductory breeding price for a limited time. We are considering taking a partner in ownership--if not, we'll keep this gem for ourselves!

Cash is enjoying the mild, damp weather (but windy!) in the North San Francisco Bay area, at our farm in Marin County.
