Vanora has presence, size, attitude, beautiful conformation, and lustrous, crimpy fleece. At 5 years she still came in at 16.9 with a 99.2% comfort factor! Now at SIX years she's 17.8 micron 4.4 SD and 98.6 comfort factor, shearing 7.8 lbs.
WOW!! Look at her EPD stats for 2014:
Top 2% AFD and Spin Fineness AND Fleece Weight
Top 3% %F>30
Top 4% SD Mean Curvature
Top 5% Mean Curvature
This gal is at the top of what our farm has produced. She has bright, bundled, high frequency crimp just like her famous sire, Accoyo America Diomedes. Her sire, Diomedes (now sold to Canada) ranked 21 out of 14,637 sires for AFD in the 2013 EPD statistics.
Vanora took the BLUE in her age group for the 2010 AOBA National Spin-Off with her AFD of 17.2 and comfort factor of 100% at age 2. She has a fine micron and heavy shear weights. To me that means DENSITY!
Look at her brothers Dirk and McTavish, with the same amazing sire Diomedes and the same fineness. Don't you think you could use some of these genetics?
