She started her halter show career by taking a Blue Ribbon at the 2015 Ohio Alpacafest as a juvenile!
Considering that Runner's Dust Storm is out of a True Black dam and sired by a Black herdsire, Rumm Runner, we're pleased that she is very competitive and placed highly in very tough Fawn classes. She has a very fine, bright fleece, a high-frequency consistent crimp style, and long staple length.
CCAP Runner's Dust Storm was sired by 10x champion and 2008 AOBA National Halter AND Fleece Champion, Rumm Runner, out of a True Black dam, with a little Grey in her background. This female exhibits a highly organized fleece with brightness and character, typical of the fleece traits of many of Rumm Runner's offspring. Runner's Dust Storm is well-grown for her age. This female has black genetics through and through along with a touch of Grey. Her True Black dam, Smoke Ring, just produced a grey female sired by a grey male!
CCAP Runner's Dust Storm has been bred to Snowmass Stylish Enlightning, a Classic Medium Rose Grey herdsire, with multiple banners to his credit, including 2016 OABA Alpacafest, and is confirmed pregnant!!! He exhibits dense, fine fleece with a high-frequency crimp, and long staple length and his conformation is spot-on! Dust Storm's mom, Smoke Ring, just delivered a Medium Silver Grey Female that was sired by grey herdsire! We can't wait to see what this breeding produces!
