BACK STORY: Each year I pick a handful of what I think are extra special guys and coordinate dates for my gals. Last year, I fell in love with leopard appaloosa, Illini’s Adam’s Mark. In addition to his outstanding pattern design, he has a solid frame, beautiful fleece and a pedigree packed with appaloosa and harlequins sure to excite the most serious appaloosa breeder.

Uniformity of fleece characteristics can be challenging when breeding multis... So BMF Peruvian Millennium was selected from my foundation for this mating. Milli not only contributes a beautiful phenotype but brings well-defined fleece characteristics AND uniformity to the mix. Milli boasts a fiber micron of 20 AFD at age 7 and is in the top 5% EPDs in 3 categories (2019). Milli is the product of BMF’s breeding goal which was to produce a fine fleeced animal in color. Milli’s dam, Trinity carried a 17.2 AFD for her 7th fleece!

Sooooo.... Milli made the long journey from California to Texas for this very special date. She wintered over last year at Sleepy Acres Farm and was cared for by Rob and Jen Bolton. In the Spring she returned with a baby in the bun!!

Millie delivered this handsome 17 lb. appaloosa boy on 1/19/20. We couldn’t be more pleased with him. Beautiful appaloosa patterning, tons of fleece and a pedigree packed with appaloosa genetics to compliment our existing program. Thank you Jen Bolton for your support... with gratitude!
