Velvet Rose has a champion pedigree loaded with color genetics. Her sire is the champion Snowmass Velvetier -- a Snowmass Velvet Touche son. Her dam is Andina's Rose Pearl -- a Snowmass Silver Signature daughter.

In fact, if you are interested in Snowmass genetics, Velvet Rose is actually 3/4 Snowmass pedigree. Her Snowmass lineage includes: (Snowmass) Velvet Touche, Royal Splendor, Invincible, Royal Bronze, Serenity Sunbeam, Matrix, Royal Flush, Sweet Dreams, Peruvian Casanova, Andean Bronze, Quechua. On top of that she bears genetics from Accoyo Victor by way of Victor's Julius. If you know Victor progeny, you know that they have lingering fineness.

Velvet Rose has good conformation on a square frame. She has good coverage of fleece that is bright and long in staple length, with a high frequency crimp style. Her fiber is very fine with good density for her fineness. She is a sweet girl with lots of potential in a our breeding program.

We are looking forward to pairing her with our champion black herdsires, Maelstrom and Stradivarius, to bring out her dark color genetics..... or to our Supermassive and Orionn in our light program as they are producing very nice crias themselves! But for this time, we have bred her to our champion grey male, Dauntless, to see if her modern grey roaning is a hint at what she can produce for us from her grey heritage.
