ARI# 35589075   D.O.B. 4/26/2018  (2 yrs)

Huacaya, Female, Unproven | Dark Fawn, True Black

Sire: FTAF's Privateer | ARI# 32318326  | Light Fawn 
Dam: Lady Godiva | ARI# 1027082  | Dark Brown 
Service Sire:     

This beautiful young girl is sired by FTAF's Privateer-- the son of true black SHVN The Buccaneer who took his 13th banner at 7 years old! Privateer is a stunning champion that possesses awesome structure and the brightness to his fleece is blinding. He has a gorgeous head and coverage everywhere. Privateer's fleece is that "elite" fleece with bundles everywhere and secondary bundles coming out of each bundle, even down to his knee and under his belly and on his chest.

Like daddy, Rum Runner has beautiful fleece character and you can feel the density. At 10 days old, she was shorn and the fleece came off in a "blanket". No fly-away tips! Runner's dad's skin biopsy results from 2017 (at 5yrs old by Dr. Norm Evans) showed a density of 71 follicles/sqmm. SP ratio is 12.1 to 1 with level 4 of 4 gland presence which correlates with what senior judges are referring to as “well-nourished fleeces”. Secondary fibers average 21.9 microns and primary fibers averaging 30.1 giving him a variation of only 8.2 microns.

UPDATE On Rum Runner's Sire:
Privateer is aging gracefully. Six year (2018) stats... AFD 20.9 / SD 3.9 / CV 18.5 / CF 98% / %>30: 2%

Lasting fineness is a signature trait of this line.
