The second daughter of our exceptional dam, Olivia, Luminance wowed us with her brightness the moment she hit the ground. Sired by Majestic Peruvian Jeremiah, Lumi's fleece is tremendously dense, soft, fine, and brilliant. Luminance is a healthy, breeding female, an excellent mother, that we anticipate keeping as a permanent member of our foundation herd.
Lumi's 2014 cria, by Archangel's Malachi, is a lovely rose grey male, PacaWallop. Wall-E appears to be a promising young male. We are impressed that Lumi produced rose grey (!) and are impressed with this fellow's cria fleece, which is both dense and exhibits a high level of crimp definition. Lumi has been re-bred to Malachi!
SOF Olivia's Peruvian Odysseus
White, 31777377, Full Peruvian
Olivia's first male cria, Odysseus, is an impressive fellow. Sired by AML Legacy's Salud, we had hoped to pull color out of Olivia, which we did . . . sort of. Odysseus ("Odie") has an absolutely gorgeous and abundant white fleece, very consistent in fineness, crimp style, bundling, and color, except for one fawn spot. There is no color contamination throughout the rest of his fleece, which is one of the qualities that allowed him to rise to first place white fleece out of 13 in the 2013 GMAFS Level III Fleece show, where the competition was fierce. Even in the ultra-competitive white halter classes, including the Level V 2012 NAAS, Odysseus was kept in the lineup, despite his fawn spot, due to the exceptional quality of his fleece, as well as his solid conformation. Take particular note of Odie's exception consistency (CV) and staple length (over six inches). Odie is dense, packing on the fleece and producing a large heavy blanket at shearing.
Serenity is a beautiful white breeding female with outstanding genetics and a strong, large frame with excellent capacity. Serenity produces abundant highly consistent, fine, bright white fleece. Now a proven mother, she is likely to produce white, when bred to white males. But, she has demonstrated that she can also produce lovely color when bred to a colored herdsire.
We are retaining her 2019 light fawn cria, SOF Peach Petal, sired by our award-winning beige herdsire, SOF Spotlight.
Serenity will be available to take home at the end of September, when her cria is weaned.
