BSRA JORDAN

BSRA JORDAN

HuacayaFemaleDark Silver Grey
AOA# DOB: 7/7/20164 yrs
Jordan is a very sweet dark silver gray girl. She has a beautiful bright, crimpy deep dark silver gray fleece. She and Minnie Pearl were born just a day apart and are great little friends. She is her dam, Valencia's, first cria, and we are so pleased. She is a very straight, correct girl! Her fleece is an amazing, dark silver gray with zipper crimp. Very fine, with a buttery soft handle. Jordan is bred to Dundee's The Lad for a 2020 cria. ...

BSRA WHITE DIAMOND'S TIARA

BSRA WHITE DIAMOND'S TIARA

HuacayaFemaleWhite
AOA# DOB: 10/4/20146 yrs
Tiara is a lovely girl with the softest buttery hand. Her fleece is bright white and has lovely crimp. She is from a Blue Ribbon white dam and a Color Champion appaloosa sire and carries fawn spots on her muzzle and feet, so I am thinking she can produce appies. Tiara is breeding to Big Hat Ranch's Blade Runner for a 2018 cria. She had an amazing appaloosa boy, BSRA Blade Runner's Requiem. He has taken blues in halter in all but one show where he took a 2nd Unfortunately, there were not enough multis for championships at those shows. His fleece took 1st and Color Champion at the AOA International Fleece Show! Blade is now co-owned with Cass and Old Dog Galloway of Big Hat Ranch. ...
Camoflage BHAR

Camoflage BHAR

harlequin
AOA# 30804715
WORLD CHAMP multi male with a 19/20 score for fineness and hand. An amazing animal with a fleece that remains consistent and fine. In a true move of solidarity Camo has gone grey like his owner. His fleece still got the high scores we're used to, but in grey. Camo has won Championships in both grey and multi. Now his spots are on a different background, but dappled grey or multi we're still excited about his crias. FUTURITY MULTI COLOR CHAMPION- Camo's daughter- Big Hat Faith in the Fleece and Multiple Champion Syncopation Camo is a stocky,energy packed boy that loves to breed.He has the macho attitude and testicle size to get the job done! I'm hoping to pass on some of this amazing staple, fineness and COLOR. The judges all were amazed at how many different colors he sports and all commented that they would like to see him shorn. His staple is a good 6-7" and we have video of it coming off in speckly waves. Cathy Merkley, at Mid-America, stated "This boy is very consistent across all these colors.” In Peru they say, "Manchas son carne." "Spots are meat." Lucky for Camo he's at the Big Hat. Send your girls to the mountains for a spa-like vacation and breeding to a World Champion as well as a proven producer of champions.

EON WHITE DIAMOND'S ELIZABETH

EON WHITE DIAMOND'S ELIZABETH

HuacayaFemaleWhite
AOA# DOB: 5/26/20119 yrs
Elizabeth is just what we hoped for in pairing White Diamond with Leviticus. She is super-fine, with incredible brightness. She carries good density, too, as she sheared 4.85 pounds with only 9 1/2 months growth. We are awaiting her histogram. Her dam was still under 20 microns at 4 years old, so I'm expecting lingering fineness here. Her fleece has a buttery soft handle is is a joy to work with. She has produces a Judge's Choice female and a couple of stunning boys. I am looking forward to her pairing with BSRA Francisco for a September 2020 cria. Elizabeh is due in about 3 weeks. Her price goes up when cria is born (or I may decide to keep it!) Liz had a gorgeous light fa...

AOA# DOB: 8/10/20146 yrs
I love the look of Emmy Lou. She is a well grown girl with a beautiful presence and lovely fine dense fleece, with coverage from head to toe! In awarding her a blue ribbon at GWAS Judge Jill MacLeod commented on her brightness and hand. Emmy Lou has taken 2 Reserve Color Championships and is ready to breed. In a recent (2017) walking fleece class, Judge Sharon Loner, commented on her absence of guard hair. She looked and could find none! Emmy Lou will be breeding to our multi champion BSRA Snowmass Enlightenments Patron for a 2018 cria. She just delivered a gorgeous medium rose gray boy August 10, 2018. He;s looking good!

BSRA MINNIE PEARL

HuacayaFemale (bred)Light Rose Grey
AOA# DOB: 7/8/20164 yrs
Minnie Pearl is everything we hoped for. The first cria sired by BSRA Snowmass Enlightenment's Patron, she is a mini-me of her sire. One of the strongest cria I have personally seen, she was on her feet in 5 minutes, nursing by 30 minutes, and has grown like a weed. Her first show was the 2017 AOA National Show and she took a 1st place at Halter. Doesn't get much better than that! Judge Jill McLeod said that she was the densest in her class! Minnie had a beautiful rose gray girl sired by Bea-2 Bomber. Minnie is a great mom and has lots of milk!...
