AutumnSun's Jet-Black Pearl is a fantastic addition to our black and grey breeding program. Her dam is DB female that produced grey when bred to grey and black when breed to other colors. So, we were not terribly surprised to have our Black Pearl arrive.

Pearl is a well grown female, boxy with solid bones, moving freely on a well-balanced frame. She is calm and easy-going, relaxed around people and guardian dogs. Her fleece has good density, especially for her fineness, and excellent coverage on her head and legs. Her fiber is glossy with a consistent medium amplitude crimp. She continues to give us good fiber length. As a 2 year old she showed consistent white fibers throughout her black and intensifying at her chest, neck and legs. She clearly has a grey gene and is now an expressed modern dark silver grey -- despite her name. She has maintained that roaning since then, and we now look for and see it in her crias too.

For her first cria, we selected the exceptional (many time) white champion male Snowmass Matrix Belvedere for a wonderful 2013 girl with the most striking looks! Puzzle started as MB, but but like her mom she quickly turned a lovely MRG with white markings on her face and white fibers throughout her blanket.

Then, Pearl had a lovely dark brown girl, Blissful Burgundy, by our appaloosa herdsire Jacob that developed into a solid, well built girl quickly. Due to her quick maturation both of size and of nature, Bliss was able to be bred as a 18-month old yearling to multi-champion Red Granite's Mr. Ben Franklin, a Matrix grandson to make a very nice DB male. As a weanling, she started developing the white fibers that Pearl and Puzzle have shown, which stalled her show career as a yearling

In 2016, Pearl produced a lovely LRG girl sired by our MRG champion Longbow. This girl is fantastic with lovely looks. And, what a sweetheart! Ellycris is growing into a regal, graceful girl with distinct MRG fiber.

Her cria this year is another lovely girl from our champion LRG AutumnSun's Dauntless -- a fawn/ fawn grey that looks like her grey sister in form and fiber.

Looks like Pearl has a 'type' and that is grey! Let's see what she does with our black male, 13x Champion AutumnSun's Black Maelstrom.
