MMFA Venus Rising

Huacaya Bred (Female) White

AOA# 35157700 DOB: 10/16/20175 yrs
Phenomenal girl...All we can say is Wow! She is better than we could have dreamed! She produced her first cria on 10/16/20 from a breeding with Ganymede, the 2017 AOA National Supreme Champion, and 4X Judges Choice male...and we absolutely love what we got! It’s a white female that we named Adhara. We bred Venus back to Ganymede for an encore performance and she produced Adhara’s full sister on 10/25/21! We’ve named her Carina. She'll be bred right back to Ganymede in 2022 for her Spring 2023 cr ...

So...that spot doesn't bother us at all. With that fleece, we have a plan for Adhara! In looking at Adhara's fleece, it's a strong combination of everything good from her parents -- it has a beautiful crimp and bundling with an extremely fine micron and wonderful handle. Adhara was shown as a yearling at the 2022 CAC/CAP Show, and she garnered first place in a Halter class of whites, even though she has that rather obvious fawn spot in her blanket, and she took third in a tough Walking Fleece class! I think the Judge was considering Adhara for a RC banner, but he just couldn't bring himself to do it because of that was obvious he liked both her fleece and conformation.

Adhara's very promising as a step towards creating a highly evolved fleece character in a darker fleeced offspring! She's likely to be able to push color through. Can't wait to put her together with a darker herdsire! The decision will be whether to breed her to Man in the Moon's Rigel, a 5x Champion — see his webpage for more information, or our new herdsire, Irish Meadows Corteva (who has a Judge's Choice banner under his belt). I can assure you that the cria out of either of these multi-champion males will be amazing. We expect a high probability for a fawn cria of solid color with an absolutely phenomenal fleece!

So, Adhara did show at the 2021 MAPACA as a Juvie and she definitely got dinged for having the spot in her blanket, but Judge Wade Gease said he kept her in at 4th because of her bright fleece, fineness and her uniformity across the blanket—while mentioning that spot. Despite the spot, we repeated this breeding with hope for another little girl just like Adhara...minus the spot would be a bonus, but we'll take it either way with this high quality fleece! Adhara's full sibling arrived and her name is Carina! We bred their dam, Venus, back to their sire, Ganymede, for yet another full sibling. Can't wait to see him or her in Spring of 2023!

P.S. Adhara is a star in the constellation Canus Majora
