Magic Moon has the best fleece on this farm. Our goal was to try and pull some of the color out of this amazing white fleece. We bred her to our boy Goldrush in hopes that he'd push his stunning color and density onto her fine, fine white fleece. Boy, did we get what we were hoping for. Lunar has the brightest of fawn fleeces, with a very advanced organization and crimp. He's got Mom's fineness too.

Let's not forget pedigree either. Lunar's sire, Goldrush, is the product of all-everything herdsire Sunset Hills Andean Gold and a Peruvian Zephyrus daughter. We' double dipped in the Zeph gene pool on this one as Magic Moon's sire is a Zeph son. Her maternal grand dam is a Bolivian import, bringing some influential hybrid vigor to the breeding. Lunar's pedigree includes Peruvian Hemingway, 5Peruvian Santana and Accoyo imports Victor, Timoteo, and El Moustachio.

Lunar took to the ring for the first time as an 8 month old. Despite being the smallest in his class, he rose to 3rd of 10 in a loaded class at Northeastern Expo. He followed that up with another 3rd at the Bay State Small Breeders Blast. The only concerns were regarding color inconsistency as he fades from a dark fawn top line to nearly white in his chest and belly. Very curious to see what he looks like after shearing.

Update: Lunar just received his first blue ribbon at MAPACA!! Despite being the youngest and smallest in his class, when sandwiched next to the 2nd place male, Lunar's stunning brightness and superior fineness won the judge over as she awarded him 1st place. In the Jubilee show, Sharon Loner chose the 2nd place male over Lunar for his size, while conceding the same edges in brightness and fineness.

"Look at him standing there, he's special and he knows it" - Amanda Vandenbosch
"Finest and brightest in the class (of 11)" - Sharon Loner
"Advanced architecture and organization, bundles within bundles and his brightness and fineness carried him to the top of the class" - Stephanie Glyptis

Lunar has matured nicely in his 2nd year. He placed within a point of the CC and RC at the Showtacular Walking Fleece and placed 4th in his MAPACA walking fleece class behind 3 multi champions and not by much.


****UPDATE: We can no longer show Lunar in halter due to a developmental injury to his manhood. Because this appears to be an environmental issue (we're happy to discuss with you further), we do still envision him as a breeder. We'll be trying him this summer to see if he's fertile.
