Now bred to true black Antonio of Golden Pines who has a 22.7 micron in his 10th year! Annnnd . . . confirmed pregnant by ultrasound with Dr. Tibary at WSU and again on 9/1/23 on the farm. We are aiming for COLOR! 2-for-1 price includes cria when born, estimated for late May 2024. What color will that baby be? White? Black? GRAY?
Her first cria from Bradford, born May 2022 is a beauty, IONA, with a 5 1/2" staple! Bradford has fineness and Khloë puts on length for a terrific combo. Their EPD projects really nice fleece characteristics!
Click on her EPD stats on the side bar. Here's what she is predicted to give her cria from 2022 EPD results:

Ranked 25.76% for Mean Curve, value 1.685, her offspring are likely to have more curve
Ranked 93% for %Medullation, value +2.128 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 8.82% for Mean Staple Length, value +2.208
, her offspring are likely to have a longer SL than averageTOP 16% for Fleece Weight value +0.467

Khloë's 3rd year histogram was even better than her second year! We are EXCITED to have our first Snowmass offspring and she has grown into a lovely lady, proven with an easy & unassisted birth, healthy & hearty cria, lots of milk, and now rebred.
Khloë's sire is Snowmass Snow Legend who has quite a remarkable background. Snow Legend is son of one of the most unique full Accoyo sires in the US, Snowmass Incaaccoyo Star (I-Star), who was sired by the one and only Peruvian Snowmaster. 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. Khlo'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!
