AutumnSun's Frosted Red Rose

Rose is a beautiful uniform medium rose grey with lighter heathered legs and a white face and tuxedo marking. She has full leg and face coverage with captivating 'movie star' dark eyes combined with adorable fuzzy ears.

Her crimp is consistent from head to tail, high frequency with medium amplitude and high luster. The handle and luster of her fiber shows the uniformity of micron and lack of medulation. More than one judge noted her consistency in micron and crimp style between white, brown, and black fibers. In compliment to her fantastic density, her regrowth is still nice despite being a breeding dam. With her dense fleece she really packs on the fiber. This is not surprising with a Lola and Kanaka pairing. This girl is out of one of our original foundation females, Lola, dam of several ribbon winning cria, and sired by multiple champion Kanaka - son of grey champion Avatar.

Rose showed five times as a weanling and young yearling, with the first time at just over 6 months, and each judge praised her density, crimp, fineness and uniformity -- difficult to active in a grey having all three colors (white, brown, and black) in her fiber. She secured Reserve Champion three times among impressive competition and judged by several different notable judges. Her impressive show record demonstrates her consistent, quality fiber and conformation and stands as testimony of her value.

To compliment and amplify her fiber qualities, we chose the exemplary Snowmass Enlightenment for her first service sire. With her straight conformation, independent but easy personality, dam's easy birthing history, Rosie promises is a wonderful foundation dam. She produced an elegant, regal male that looks just like her! Longbow secured his own wins and is now producing his own fantastic crias.

Bred to the note-worthy Patagonia's Lennox, Rosie produced a spectacular MB male, Smokejumper, that has won several blue ribbons and banners in his maturing as he maintains a very fine fiber to win him halter and fleece champion banners, fleece Spirit of the Industry banners and even Judge's Choice!

From the incomparable Annual's Bea-2 Bomber, Rose produced a stunning LRG boy that we named Dauntless. He has taken home a slew of blue and purple ribbons.

In 2019 she produced a classic MSG boy sired by our Dark Secret, for a brother to our 13x black champion herdsire, Maelstrom.
