Birchleaf Savanna   


True Black, 1322231, 3/4 Chilean, 1/4 Peruvian


Savanna is one of our top black females, she has extremely dense jet black fibre with good character and consistancy. She produced a true black male off Sunnyhills Bandit that did well at the Canadian National Futurity.He has since been sold to Ontrio. She has some great genetics in her background including Lady Shilo, a blue Black Reserve champion. Which is now deceased. Shilo was the best black female I have seen to date and had a 13.7 CV. Savanna was bred to Birchleaf Nomad, our Can. Nat. Grey Black Grand Champion Male form the Hemingway & Bueno lines.
- Savanna has done it again, this time producing a spectacular dark Fawn girl, from Nomad.

  Birchleaf Nomad  
    Light Silver Grey, 30361980, 3/8 Chilean, 5/8 Peruvian  

Nomad was late to develope, partly because of a broken bone in his jaw, that we discovered as a yearling, but is making up for it now. He settled 3 females last spring and we are excited to see the results. He has incredible fleece for a grey, with vertually no guard hair.With Grandpa on his sires side being Hemingway and Bueno on his dams,also Lady Shilo (black Champion) as his Grandmother,you can see why he's turned out so spectacular.His 08 cria's have arrived and all three are females.

Accepting Breedings for 08, (only 3 Available) to Select Females.

Listed at $2700 by Vance & Darcy Rycroft of Grovedale, AB

Print Listing | Certificate | Histogram

Jayda has it all, presence, elite fibre, great personality, exact bite, beautiful head, and the right conformation. Our favorite female of the 09 season. After weaning, her fleece went from dark brown to a bay black as you can see in the fibre photo and is now changing back to dark brown. Wish she would settle on a colour. Lineage goes back to Hemingway on her Sires side and Turk/ Ivano on her Dams.

-Produced a superfine Amber Autumn Tahoma girl in 2011. Who's histogram taken Dec 9,2011 was 17.4,3.2, 18.6, 0.4> 30mic.

-Bred to Birchleaf Futarios to maximize fleece production while retaining color.

Breed her to a Black or Grey Male and You have a real good chance of getting the sires color as she has recessive genes of both.
