With glowing fleece and calm, easy-going personality, Song was born big (~22 lbs at birth and ~90 lbs at 9 mos) & grew at an amazing pace. She is well conformed, with a strong and straight frame even in her maturity. She has been a fantastic mom, just like her own mom and daughters. Song is the dam the you can build whole programs from, one that just keeps producing.

She has had predominately white crias for us but that is due to the way she was bred. Don't be fooled by this into thinking that she is a white production dam. Her first cria was a true black female sired by a dark brown male. Her dam also produced a dark brown male sired by a grey stud. Both her dam and sire have a lineage infused with color genetics. In fact, her sire produced dark brown and bay black when bred to color.

Song is worthy of praise as a production 'cornerstone' dam, so I will compliment her by praise of her progeny's exceptional traits. Regardless of color, her crias have all been desirable, some at champion levels in the show ring. They also have her spot-on confirmation, solid bones, and great coverage. Notably, her stud son Supermassive lives up to his name in conformation and coverage, as he was described by a judge as 'rooted to the ground'. Supermassive passed these traits -- in addition to an unusually long, decidedly crimpy, fiber -- to Superluminal. 'Luminal had so much fiber as a weanling that it threw off his 'boxy look' and one judge that awarded him high marks also said he would be much better once his (5 lb!) cria fleece was shorn off. Danica is another offspring that stood out from the crowd as a cria for her vitality as she literally ran around Song while learning how to nurse as newborn. Danica went on to win two banners against significant competition. Fresca, a light fawn girl from Song's daughter Aika produced fiber that was dense, crimpy and long but also so shiny that one's eye was drawn to it like to sunlight. Song's girl, Melody, went on to produce a spectacularly fleeced male, such that we kept her open for years while attempting to coordinate our timing with the stud's farm for another breeding. Eirwen, daughter of our champion black male Dark Secret is white but carries the black genetics with the same fantastic fiber and breeding potential.

Song, and her dam before her, have been well loved and well bred on our farm, truly producing a cornerstone in our herd.

Eirwen: 2018 (cria) 19.5 um / 5" staple; 2019 (1st) 20.1 um / 4.5"
Aika (LF): 2018 (4th fleece) 18.5 um / 3.5"
Fresca (LF g.daughter): 2018 (cria) 16.2 um / 5"
Danica (WH): 2016 (cria) 17.8 um / 5"; 2018 (2nd) 21.5 um / 4"
Tyson (DB 1/2 brother): 2016 (2nd) 20.8 um / 4"
Muster (WH g.son): 2017: 15.8 um / 4" in 8 mos growth; 2018 (1st): 17.9 um/ 4"
Supermassive (LF): 2014 (2nd): 21.1um / 3.5"
Superluminal (WH g.son): 2018 (cria): 16.3 um / 6"

She is now bred to Stradivarius -- fingers crossed for black!!
