This girl is quite an eye-catcher. Her face is beautifully framed with white and she has an extremely gentle personality. Abby has the darkest fiber that could be considered brown. In the field she looks black. Her fiber has a very soft handle and has an excellent staple length.
Abby is a great Gray Producer - 3 out of 5 cria (60%) have been rose or silver gray. She is 100% gray when bred to gray.
Abby was bred to our award winning herd sire Silver Blade II for a spring 07 cria. We were pleased with the results - a lovely Med rose gray boy that has excellent bone structure and fleece characteristics.
Abby's cria for 08 was also a rose gray, dark this time out of our fawn herdsire Sugar's Head Turnin' Image who has produced both black & DSG. This boy achieved high point (champion) gray in a large spin off as a yearling.
With 2 such nice babies, it was a hard decision of who to breed her to, but we chose Sugar's Head Turnin' Image. That cria was a rich dark reddish brown very close in color to his mother.
Oct 2010 *** Abby just gave birth to a beautiful brown female cria out of our Painted Spring Eldorado
June 2012 - Silver gray male cria out of Maggie's Silver Moon
Abby was exposed in the fall of 2013 to Lancaster's Silver Centaur. When she came home she cushed for one of our boys, so we don't believe she is pregnant, but she has put on weight through the winter, so we will have her tested in the spring.
If she is not pregnant, she will be bred in the spring to one of our exceptional new herdsires, Alpine's Carderock or Black Warrior.
