Repeat Breed to Ganymede!

Ask a question
While Carmella's genetics and EPD's are top of the line--the proof is in the pudding! Carmella's daughter first caught our eye so we went to look at her and found that her dam, Carmella, and full sister, Joy, were also very nice and we came home with all three!

We chose to breed Carmella to Man in the Moon’s Peruvian Ganymede for her spring 2023 cria. With Snowmass Matrix as her sire, this was our first foray into a direct Ganymede X Matrix cross, and I must say that it worked out really well! Carmella delivered a beautiful female cria, Cassia, on 6/11/23! Her fleece is downright spectacular! Soooo….Carmella has been bred back to Ganymede for an encore, and she has definitely earned a spot in our foundation herd!

Carmella's sire, Snowmass Matrix, is truly one in a million. The fact is this stud has the Premier genetics for high curvature and ultimate fineness. He is a compact robust and well proportioned stud, perfect overall score in frame, bite, body, and reproductive anatomy. He has a fleece that extends its superior qualities over his entire frame. Matrix has what we call a Merino x Vicuna style of crimp. He has a bit more organization in the expression of crimp than a true vicuna but a very high frequency of crimp indicative in the vicuna qualities. Most importantly this stud exhibits an extreme fineness, brightness, and consistency of fineness which is seen in the extension into extremities(hip, belly, shoulder neck and head). He has held these qualities as he has aged which is exactly what we are looking and breeding for.
