National Velvet "Lizzy" is a true black silky soft female with a short face, broad muzzle and fuzzy ears. She has excellent bone substance and is a fantastic and protective mother. She has a perfect bite with dark eyes. Her sire is none other than Neversummer's US Steel 3 time Futurity Herdsire of the year for the Small Breeder Division and proven producer of beautiful grey color champions.

National Velvet's dam is Granite Bay Satin Silhouette, a beautiful Snowmass Satin ReserveXX daughter with excellent bone substance on a stout frame (which is so characteristic of her sire). National Velvet comes from a great line of beautiful animals with excellent milk production and great mothering instincts.

On 12/7/17 Lizzy delivered a beautiful fawn boy sired by 2015 Futurity Color Champion-- FTAF Blackbeard. Lizzy’s cria has no fuzzy cria tips... just beautiful bundles of shiny curls! He was born 14 pounds and has doubled his weight in his first two weeks. Even as a newborn, his fleece is something out of the ordinary... and he has been named Silky Sam, I am!

2018 - Lizzy throws a Harlequin female with black spots! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE. This pairing has been repeated for a December 2019 offspring!

11/29/19 - Lizzy delivered a stunning dark silver grey female— dense, silky soft fleece and beautiful coloration. Just charmed!

12/18/20 - Lizzy delivered a 323 day gestation true black! He is very handsome and, as always, Lizzy is being a stellar mom.

3/28/21 - Lizzy was bred to harlequin appaloosa herdsire Apache Gentleman. She is behavior testing "positive" for pregnancy after just one breeding. This girl is oh, so easy when it comes to breeding. Lizzy has now been bred just 3 times since her arrival in December 2017. These 3 breedings have resulted in 2 offspring and its lookin' good that she is pregnant now as well for an early March 2022 offspring. Just love it when the foundation girls are this fertile and reproductively healthy. Go Lizzy!!

7/9/22 - Lizzy is currently in Colorado for her breeding to 3X appaloosa champion Apache Gentlemen's Alchesay. She has behavior tested positive and will return to California in September 2022. Lizzy is available as a 3-in-1 package with her male cria at side. This is a limited time offer while Lizzy is in Colorado.
