A Roosevelt daughter possessing Patagonia bloodlines, Berry is a good catch from an well known grey program that has produced pivotal grey herdsires. She has produced well in her years of production service for her previous farm and we are sure she has plenty of years for more great crias. She is traditional in her body type and fiber archetype but does very well bred to our stocky, rooted to the ground herdsires.

Berry had another beautiful grey cria in 2014, sired by NS Magic Flight (Snowmass Enlightenment x Almost Paradise Farms Beatriz; LSG #32313277). This boy ended up finding his place in a starting herd in Kansas, so we wish him well.

In 2016 Berry made a mini-me from Major General. Striking in appearance with white on his face and a maroon bay black color, he really caught the eye! We lost this boy to a sudden reaction to an illness without seeing him grow to his full maturity. With this sad occurrence, we have definitely thought of rebreeding Berry to Major for a repeat.

In 2017 we bred Berry to our multi-champion grey male Dauntless to produce a lovely black male. He was born the year of the bomb cyclone, which hit us hard at our farm and slowed his growth -- so he is a bit smaller than average. He is very fine, with nice crimp and style but he needs more density to push his fleece into show contention; there are articles about fiber producing animals having a perceived less density due to lack of follicle development due to stress in the early formative months (like he did with our harsh weather). His personality is supersweet which is why he is at our farm still though we have too many fantastic black herdsires for him to really 'do' anything for us. He is available for purchase as a fiber male or fiber farm herdsire.

Berry is now bred back to Major General, since this pairing produced a very fine fibered male the first time. As we noted, we have always thought about repeating that 2016 breeding as that boy was awesome to look at.

She has been a great mom and we believe she has more crias ahead of her, and her price includes consideration of her age or she would be higher.

As a proven and bred dam with no history of issues breeding, birthing or nursing, she is sold without breeding warranties. Contract will provide for live-cria guarantee of the cria en utero. Transportation related costs are the buyer's responsibility, with transport allowed at contract signing. Finance available: up to 12 month 0% interest payment with 30% down.

Looking nice, and getting better each day. We would keep him except we have his half brother, his dam and his cousin. Get him while you can! Sto...
