OPEN DAM / PROVEN
Cady is our 1st place blue ribbon winner at the TxOLAN 2012 Show. Her staple length that year at shearing was astounding—between 6 to 6.5 inches! The crimp she exhibits is moderate but highly pronounced throughout her long fleece. Her coverage is solid. Her conformation is excellent. She has inherited the superb qualities of her sire, Snowmass Porteus’—praised by Snowmass as the best XXXtreme son ever born, and her dam’s (Cameo) own superb qualities—fleece, bone structure, temperament and coverage.
Some of her judge’s comments at her first show in Amarillo were: · Extreme fineness in her fleece · A softness of touch · Density with consistent micron · Long staple length for her age · A beautiful color—”I’d love to see a sweater made from that color!” Her judge at TxOLAN in February, 2012 succinctly stated, “She’s the total package!” In the 2013 TxOLAN Fleece Show, she was the finest grey, and her fineness was in the top ratings of the entire show—regardless of color, and comparable to many white entries.
Her personality is warm and likeable. She is confident when touched by humans, and stays close to the shed when we are around. She enjoys a good chin rub, and is always the first to investigate an open shed door that reveals our baled hay.
We are proud that Cady continues to bless our ranch. Her first breeding was to the nationally renowned GreyBeard, and we had a beautiful Dark Modern Silver Grey cria we named Silver Belle. Her next cria by Irish Meadows Peruvian Flashpoint is our first Color Champion, Stormy Weather of Aubrey Oaks. His grey fiber is extremely rare with no white, black or brown at the skin, only true grey fibers!
