newborn cria -- bay black face shows his true colors!

AutumnSun's Pogo (2011 Jacob cria)

D.O.B. 9/13/2011  (8 yrs)

Huacaya, Male, Unproven | Bay Black

3/8 Peruvian, 1/4 Bolivian, 3/8 Chilean
Sire: Little Blessings Jacob | ARI# 3007323  | Light Fawn, Medium Fawn 
Dam: Gabe's Mocha | ARI# 30902664  | Medium Brown, Bay Black |

This boy IS roaning throughout his blanket. His chest is a wonderful dusky color with his bay black fibers mixing with fawn as well as white. I like this color so much I am thinking of creating it by mixing fibers for my rovings / yarn!

His shiny fiber with a silky soft handle, great staple length and regrowth, and good coverage, density and crimp. He has such an expressive and open face, along with his fuzzy ears and good topknot, so you always want to look at him. On his side, he loves people and the camera, 'shadowing' you a few feet away to see what you are doing.

He is well grown with a straight and strong conformation. His bite is good.

We have his sire, and a herdsire row that already surpasses the needs of our small farm, so we cannot keep him. If we could have asked for more, we would have put a bit more crimp and density on him to be more competitive in the show ring. However, he is above average in all qualities and very good to excellent in some. He would be great for infusing color into your herd, especially if you are interested in promoting long staple and shiny, soft fiber.
