Bidding Info


When we were seeking a male to take our breeding program further, we were looking for the total package. We are confident that we found that in Status Symbol. He combines pedigree power with a spate of show-ring championships and his proven ability to confer his excellent fleece qualities to his offspring. If you are seeking a male with LASTING FINENESS, your search is over. Both Ian Watt and Norm Evans have performed skin biopsies on Status Symbol, and his secondary to primary follicle ratio is 13.4:1 (Watt's) and 13.25:1 (Evans'). Check out his 2011 histogram, as it is excellent for an eleven year old male.

I love Status' approach to his work. All I have to do is show up at his pen area with a halter in hand, and he starts his engine as if competing at LeMans! Thus far, as promised by his prior owner, he is settling females in a single breeding here.

We are honored to have Status Symbol here, and proudly co-own him with our friends at Andes Dandies, LLC. We thank Tana Shaw for letting this beautiful male leave the grounds of "TanaLand. Rest assured, he is loved and adored here. Status has been our choice to which to breed many of our treasured banner-winning daughters of our late Caligula's Casanova. One look at his offspring, both Takoda -- Status' seven-time champion son -- and now Supermodel, whose dam is our own banner champion, Hidden Hill Peruvian Brillanta, prove that this boy does the job, and then some!

Financing Terms

We like to tailor financing to meet the needs of our clients, so we do not have set terms. Everyone has a different set of parameters, just as they do different goals, so a 'one size fits all' approach just makes no sense when talking financing terms.
