Here's one pretty little lady with a beautiful and SO USEABLE fleece. See her updated 2016 histogram results!
Here's what her 2016 EPD shows she is likely to give her cria:
AFD, value —.189, a lower AFD than breed average
SDAFD, value —.158: a more uniform fleece than average
Spin Fineness, value —.285: a finer SF than average
%F>30, value —2.408: less micron >30 than average
Mean Curvature, value +1.046: more curve than average
SDMC, value +.582: more uniformity to curve than average
%M, value —1.29: less medullation than average
Fleece Weight, value +.034, heavier fleece weight than average

All of the above are GOOD traits. Her lack is in staple length (which can be improved with stud).

Rhiannon went through her first pregnancy and birth without a hitch. SEPT 2013, she had a male cria, McCheyne, who is a light fawn. This boy's legs are sprinked with white. Rhiannon showed us her milking abilities, because in 4 weeks this little guy packed on 16 lbs.! The sire, Dirk, is making very nice cria!

Rhiannon is quite calm and easy going like her mama (Hazelnut) and has a huge cuteness factor (but that's not what REALLY counts, is it?) Still, cute is pretty fun! Were we surprised to get white out of a DF mom and MRG sire?? Can she pass on that grey color of her famous papa? This is one little gal that we looks like she can produce some nice offspring.

Robyn Kuhl of Coarse Broads and the NAAFP cooperative sorted fleece for us and said Rhiannon had a very good secondary to primary ratio and got an 8 for brightness, 8 for uniformity, 7.5 for density with a very uniform blanket. She had a lovely 4 year histogram and was still in the grade 2 superfine category.

With purchase: Free board for 2 months. Free ultrasound package. Free delivery within 150 miles. Reproductive and 14-day live cria guarantees.

You might also consider our RENT-A-WOMB plan with her. You choose one of the many excellent studs available locally to our farm and pay the stud fee. OR choose one of our studs and take 25% off the regular stud fee. Our girl stays here on the farm and you pay her reduced monthly boarding fee ($65/mo) until she delivers. You get to use this beautiful female to produce the cria of your choice without the expense of buying an adult female or tending her for 11 months. Interested? Contact us and we'll explain further.
