Fall 2019 UPDATE: It's a light fawn female cria and she is gorgeous already!!! This little girl looks like a carbon copy of Sarafina's 2018 cria out of GANYMEDE; she is AMAZING - very reminiscent of her sire! See more info on Ayla (2019 cria) and Elara (2018 cria) in the links below. This combination of GANYMEDE and TWF Sarafina definitely works! So...we've exposed Sarafina to Ganymede for a 3rd time!

If you are breeding for fiber that has amazing uniformity, consistency, lasting fineness, and is "the SAME all over!", this is an incredible place to start. Sarafina's fleece, and the unmatched consistency of Ganymede, has produced amazing offspring.

Sarafina has a uniform consistent crimp, a soft handle, great staple length, great density, and fineness across the staple. She has had textbook perfect births, and displays excellent mothering instincts. Her size and conformation is just perfect for production, too. She's just a beautiful girl...Her genetics are also impressive. Sarafina's sire, TWF Peruvian Embosser (Odyssey, Godfather, Vengador, Royal Fawn) passed on his elite fleece, handle, staple and coverage. Her dam, TWF Peruvian Saffron (Felix, Accoyo Express) also passed on her dense, bright fleece.

Her service sire, Man in the Moon's Peruvian Ganymede, is an 11X Color Champion and 4X Judge's Choice winner in white, with amazing fleece and excellent conformation. The Judges have said: "He's the SAME...All Over!" See his web page for more info. He is SPECTACULAR!

The offspring Sarafina and Ganymede have created together are perfect IMHO! But, you don't have to take my word for it, you can come to the farm and see for yourself...This girl is a foundation female in every sense of the word!

Note: If sold, Sarafina may not leave the farm until her Fall 2019 cria is weaned. Since Ayla is growing quickly, it wouldn't surprise me if she's weaned in February 2020. She's already close to 60 pounds.
