In March 2013, Catalina kicked off her show career in Texas with a shiny blue ribbon! Her fleece is gorgeous - shiny, well organized and crimpy with a lovely handle.
The 2015 EPDs have been published and Catalina ranked very impressively amongst the 35,933 females included in the database this year. Catalina ranked in the top 1% for % medullation and the top 2% for SDAFD. 4 other traits were within the top 15%: SF (10.2%), AFD (12%), %>30 (12.1%) and MC (14.6%).
Catalina began her halter show career with a blue and retired with a blue! She has matured into a well grown, good sized female with excellent density, good organization and fineness.
On May 27, 2015, Catalina earned her way into our foundation herd with a gorgeous white female cria, Absaroka Carolina La Belle, sired by Sunset Hills Golden Thunder. Both dam and sire have excellent EPDs so this should be an impressive gal when she grows up! She is certainly beautiful!
Catalina gave birth to a gorgeous beige male just a few days before our vacation to Missouri. "MO" has recently been registered as Absaroka Smooth Operator and we are watching him mature with interest. He has a beautiful head (with a beard!), good bone structure and nicely crimped fleece with a long staple.
Catalina is bred to High Plains Whiteout for a 2019 cria.
