Avatar daughter. This girl is a fantastic addition to our grey foundation.... her first cria, Reposado, is a lovely combination of Loreleigh with BSRA Snowmass Enlightenment's Patron that is a robust boy whose rose grey fiber gets better each day. We thought that she had been bred to SilverLegacy last year but unfortunately an ultrasound at our farm disproved the progesterone test at the stud's farm. So, Loreleigh was left open last year as we were past our breeding window, and she will be ...

Details
This male gets better and better looking as he matures. He was born with a solid, well-conformed frame and he is maturing into a proud, statuesque herdsire. He is calm and composed in personality, not one to get easily excited but with the reserve common in the herdsire mindset. He will be a great stud. Good thing his fiber is also coming together very nicely, crimpy and soft with very nice density and bundling in a very long staple.

On a note about his showing (just his first halter show in May 2021):

We weren't planning to show, and so hadn't cria-shorn our 2020 crop or bothered coating them. Thus, when 2021 shows rolled around, to say we were less than prepared is probably being generous. But we loved the fiber on this guy and were excited about the public gathering restrictions lessening (then lifted!), so we decided to give it a go. In truth, the show results don't really demonstrate how nice this guy is, to our chagrin, and I can only say that we are proud of how he did and where he fails to show off as well, we shoulder the blame. So, be kind to him as you view his first fleece / 2021 results, knowing that he was at the mercy of his owners and weather conditions he could not control. :)

Despite that, he had done reasonably well in the shows, just off the mark (1st place, of course) by one -- but always showing against Artorius! His lower placing in the AOA national fleece show was actually scored higher than other scores with high placings, showing the high caliber of competition in the AOA show as to be expected. Though in walking fleece, if there was such a thing as Exceptional Fleece Award such as there is in fleece shows (and extrapolating the 80% to the less available total in WF vs fleece shows), he would have garnered such an award at the GWAS walking fleece show.
