River's Sahara had our first Majestic's Man cria. He is one big bundle of fiber, from the tip of his nose to tip of his toes. So much fiber. Sahara is a farm favorite. She has an elite fleece, she has an ideal phenotype and coming from Hemingway's Bogart's genetics she will have the Histogram and E.P.D. values to match the rest.

Rivers Sahara brings world class fineness on her top side and density on the bottom. Blending quality genetics directed toward optimum fleece character in every trait. Saharas fineness genetics are from grand sire Peruvian Hemingway and sire Hemingways Bogart.

We took Bogart's fleece he produced at age 17 to the the Snow Diamond Auction and the most common response was "Wow, he is really 17?" Bogie's fleece amazed everyone, he is still fine, uniform, and has a luxurious handle. His only age related fault was staple length. Sahara's EPD values are better than 75% in nearly every trait for every animal in the database for 2017, with better than 90% for a majority of the fleece traits.
Sahara is a big girl with lots of bone. She has an ideal phenotype. All of which should make for easy birthing. Her dam Summer as well as all our Bogie girls, have had many cria, producing good sized cria and lots of nourishment.
