- Light Brown
- Xanthus Rose Grey Champion
If Abbey were in high school, she would have been the tall athletic confident girl that got a varsity letter in her freshman year. Abbey was bred the previous breeding season to Clapton (Powerplay boy with 17 micron fleece/and Vermont Reserve Champion)) And she produced the best black male we have ever had on the farm (Mojoe). Abbey gave birth to a super high lustre mahogony colored female cria in August of 2012 that we named Jazmyn...this female has some of the best silky hand or handle to her fleece that we have ever seen. Being later in the season and Abbey having three cria in a row...we are leaving her open...to be re-bred in the 2013 season. We have lowered her price...so she can be sold unbred....with her cria in a Mother/Daughter package....$12,000....she will have a cria at her side until mid-winter. Abbey has thrown nothing but color....black...bay black...mahogany.
This is a statuesque female with a solid frame that weighed in at 100 lbs at just 9 months old. Her Rose Gray sire is Xanthus who stood next to Graybeard as the Reserve Color Champion at the 2003 Big E. Xanthus is one of the taller males we have seen and he has passed on that towering presence to this perfecly proportioned female. Abbey has nice density in her fleece and fineness that was passed on from her dam's sire McIntosh who had a micron of 15.3. Inverness her dam also passed on dense fiber and heavy bone from her Futurity Champion sire El Cuba. Abbey has loads of color in her background including true black, rose gray and dark fawn and we love the rich honey/heathered look of her fleece which should make a stunning yarn. The fleece has good crimp and character. Abbey leads well and is very alert and inquisitive. She is a show quality girl who would make a very strong foundation female. Terms for purchase are a third down and the balance interest-free paid over one year...... We would board her for free for 6 months after the sale
