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.
