Avanti is one of our retired mamas now. She will make an excellent pasture pet. She did extremely well in our herd during her productive years!
Avanti's 2012 cria, a male out of the genetically revered Snwomass XXXtreme Flare, is Flare's Incan Nightfire (FIN). He is a unique and gorgeous dark taupe color with a fleece champion ribbon & halter blue ribbon. Check out his fineness on his webpage - amazing for a grey! He is proven and available for outside breedings.
In 2016, Avanti produced another FIN, only female this time and out of the black multi-champion Crescent Moon's Daytona. Her name is AHarmony's Mandala and she is stunning! She produced her first daughter in 2019 - a really beautifully fleeced fawn named River.
Avanti's fleece is fantastic, uniform all the way down to her belly with crimp, fineness, density, color. Her dam is very consistently producing exceptional offspring. In fact, both Avanti's dam and sire are CHAMPIONS! Makella, her dam, won Reserve Champion for her fleece at Showcase in 2007. And in 2008 she got 2nd at Nationals (fleece) at 4 years old. She also has first place ribbons for halter from big shows such as GWAS. Avanti's sire, Hudson Hawk, is a gorgeous and successful black stud producing fineness and passing on his fantastic crimp. He won many championships during his show years and is maintaining his fineness and other desirable fleece characteristics.
In 2008 we wrote, "She is going to produce an elite fleece come shearing next year" and boy did she! Her fleece won fawn COLOR CHAMPION at the Level 4 AFCNA Continental Fleece Show. Judge Wade Gease wrote, "Beautiful Appeal - Bright & Stylish to tip!" Then in May 2010 she got 1st place at Nationals! Both Avanti's dam and sire have maintained extremely fine fleeces well into adulthood (Makella's is 21 at almost 6 years old, Hudson Hawk's is 22 at 5 years old), giving Avanti a good chance of producing a highly usable elite fleece throughout her life. If that's not enough, Avanti produces an abundance of milk and is a wonderful mother. We couldn't ask for anything more.
Avanti's top Peruvian genetics include Royal Fawn, Peruvian Augusto, El Moustachio, Don Julio, and Show Me the Money!
