Khloë is now bred to Bradford for a May 2021 cria, her first! We are looking forward to seeing what these two can produce: he's got fineness and she's got length. Their EPD projects very nice cria characteristics!

See her 2020 histogram! So NICE, so FINE, so LONG!

Please notice Khloë's 3rd year histogram is even better than her second year! We are EXCITED to have our first Snowmass kid and she is growing into a lovely young lady, ready to be bred! Khloë's sire is Snowmass Snow Legend who has quite a remarkable background. Khloë's dam is our own Muireall, a beautiful medium brown girl with lots of Acero Marka genetics.

Khloë is named after our first granddaughter, Chloë. We initially thought our Khloë was going to be born on our granddaughter's birthday--that didn't quite turn out, but we kept the name anyway and our granddaughter was delighted with our choice!

Here are her 2020 EPD results:
Ranked 37% for AFD value —0.499, her offspring are likely to have a finer AFD than average
Ranked 58% for SDAFD value —0.028, her offspring are likely to have a lower standard deviation than average
Ranked 39.6% for Spin Fineness value —0.46, her offspring are likely to have a lower SF than average
Ranked 44% for %F>30 value —1.9, her offspring are likely to have less % of fibers>30 micron than average
Ranked 23.9% for Mean Curve, value 1.668, her offspring are likely to have more curve
Ranked 94.5% for %Medullation, value +2.518, her offspring are likely to have more M than average. However, "The full impact of medullation remains a question at this point in time" (quote from Yocom-McColl labs).
TOP 5% for Mean Staple Length, value +2.948 , her offspring are likely to have a longer SL than average
TOP 11% for Fleece Weight value +0.518, her offspring are likely to have a heavier FW than average

Khloë's sire, Snow Legend, is sired by one of the most unique full Accoyo sires in the U.S., Snowmass Incaaccoyo Star. I-Star is sired by the one and only Peruvian Snowmaster. Snowmaster has 79 registered offspring of which 49 are Snowmass cria. I-Star has 64 registered cria, many belonging to Cas-Cad-Nac Farm and Snowmass, topline breeders who know their business well.

I-Star passed on his great conformation to Legend, including bite, straight legs, & straight top line, as well as his FANTASTIC fiber with a tight and uniform crimp, lock structure, density, coverage, soft handle & bundling and luster. It looks like her daddy's good features have been passed on to Khloë! She has beautifully silky fleece—like none we have ever had on the farm before!

She has developed into a large, bright girl with nice topline, legs, conformation and we will probably be using her as one of our younger foundation females. She has a sweet temperament. She's now bred to Bradford. Due in May 2022.

We realize everyone's situation is different and we are willing to draw up terms agreeable to both parties. Don't hesitate to ask for a plan that works for you.
