Lingering Fineness!

We’re so excited about this guy! We just got to see two of his first offspring at the Buckeye Fall Fest and they’re beautiful!! Sunny's fleece is amazing at almost 6 years old! His 2023 histogram puts his fleece stats at 18.5 micron with only 0.4 % over 30 microns and an SD of 3.8!

“Sunny” has the softest fleece I may have ever sunk my hands into — the soft staples break into little match stick bundles with beautiful crimp from skin to tip. The consistency across his blanket is amazing. If there’s one thing I’d change, it would be staple length, so we’re breeding Sunny to long stapled females hoping to impart all of the other wonderful qualities of his fleece — it’s truly spectacular!

The whole reason we decided to purchase Sunny is that we have first hand experience in a breeding to his sire that produced one of our best foundation females. We've bred her dam to Sunny knowing that the whole genetic package is a powerhouse -- and Sunny's dam brings in the amazing genetics of Houdini. Based on what we’ve seen in Sunny and his sire's offspring, we expect excellence in Rising Sun’s future offspring! We're pretty sure he'll produce offspring that are able to produce the kind of fleece we all want even as they age.

Rising Sun's sire, Snowmass Legend Rising, was a legend in his own right -- with 4 Judges Choice banners, including one at the 2015 AOA National Show -- a National Supreme Champion! Judges commented "...this is what we're breeding for..." Advanced fleece, strong frame. Rising Sun's dam, Houdini's Vixen, was a Champion female who produced champions, and she carried an AFD of less than 18 microns, with a CF of 98.9 at 5 years old -- that's lasting fineness!
