2019 Wrap Up!
We decided to fully rest up and get our fleeces and herd assessed for breeding decisions down the road. We knew we had some really nice crias in 2018 but were hoping that against others in fleece shows, we would be validated. We couldn’t be happier with the results!
The following list is the results from 2019 Fleece submissions based on 2018 fleeces (submissions prior to 2019 shearing) and 2019 fleeces.

2-Judge’s Choice Winners Sampson and Grace
2-Color Champions (Black and Fawn @ Suri Network)- Solomon and Tanner
1-Reserve Color Champion Fonterra
1-Best Lock Sampson
1-Best Luster Sampson

2-Best Bred and Owned (Suri Network-Black-Solomon and Fawn-Tanner)

Our 2019 crop of crias are shaping up extremely nicely! We can’t wait to show them and to share them with our fellow breeders!
