Description

We have no plans to breed Dream Catcher, so we are selling her at a rock bottom price. She does not fit into our breeding program right now. There is nothing wrong with the dam, she is healthy, in fact a little too healthy. She is amazingly friendly. Dream has good fiber, and lots of it. If you want a fiber animal she truly fits that bill. Or, if you would like a pet she also fits that requirement. She is extremely friendly, she is always the first to come running to you in the pasture. She is definitely easy to halter and handle. Ideal girl for a backyard pet, or weed eater. She acts as the sentry for her stable mates.

Dream Catcher histogram is quite respectable. Her AFD at age 3 is 19 microns and Staple length is greater than 100 mm. Her price reflects the fact that she has had allergic dermatitis of the skin on her abdomen and chest. After treatment the problem has resolved but she retains some scarring on her skin. The skin appearance is not visible upon inspection due to it's location. She is otherwise healthy and ready to put into service. The problem will have no influence on her ability to breed, nurse and produce quality offspring as a breeding dam, it's only influence is on her sale's price. We at Colusa Riverside, only sell perfect animals for our higher prices, and we are always honest about what you are buying from us.

Dream Catcher's EPDs are better than the national herd mean values. If you decide to breed her she will improve fiber and will not detract from a herdsire with better EPDs. In other words bred to an EPD gifted sire she will not compromise those EPDs in the offspring with her EPD values. Dream Catcher is especially good in increasing fiber weight and staple length. If you have concerns a vet clearance may alleviate any trepidation. Her mother has been breeding for many years and put out only health crias with difficulty in birthing or nursing.

Dream Catcher's blanket has good density, architecture and bundling. Her conformation has no faults and her bite is perfect. Her mother LaPoudre has amazing staple length, and the EPD to carry on that staple length in her progeny Dream Catcher. We would consider a breeding if you are seriously interested at her current price.
