Bogart's River Sahara has it all. She has an elite fleece, she has an ideal phenotype and coming from Hemingway's Bogart's genetics she will have the Histogram and EPD values to match the rest. Bogart gives all his progeny improved fleece, genetics and phenotype. He will also give Sahara what he is truly known for and that is longevity of fineness. Bogart is 22 microns at age 15. Sahara's Histogram is excellent she has an AFD of 18, CV of 22 & SD of 4.1. Comfort factor of 99.1. Her staple length is long at 90 mm. She is ideal and ready for breeding to our next step, which is A Man Among Men. When he is ready she will be ready.
Sahara has grown an amazing fleece in just six months. She was shorn at about 6 weeks and now looks like she is ready to be shorn again in less than 6 months growth. Her 10 month Fleece weighed in at 7.2 lbs. Her fleece is luxurious with soft handle you can't believe. She has uniformity of character and her architecture is better over her hip and shoulder than even her blanket. She carries this architecture into her neck and flank.
Her Dam brings Density and fiber weight, but so does Bogart. She is guaranteed to have a dense fleece as an adult and breeding female. Her expected prodigy determinations are totally respectable. She will provide improvement in all fiber traits, except staple, but she has along staple so I would say she will not detract any staple length, especially given the small negative value in staple. She is ideal as foundation female. Most all traits are in or around the 5% to 10% range for improvement. She is actually has an ideal EPD picture, she has nothing dramatic but will provide improvement in 8 of 9 fiber traits. It does not get much better than that, otherwise you are paying in the 5 figure range.
