Skyline's Daphne


LF with TRUE BLACK and GREY genetics!

Skyline’s Daphne is an amazing Light Fawn/Beige female that was a real surprise for us given that her Dam’s Sire is True Black, LMFI Peruvian Black Midnight, and Daphne’s Sire, Skyline’s Francisco, is Medium Sliver Grey and a son of a grey dam, HDF Francy and a black sire, Snowmass Nova’s Nuance! I remember when she was born I thought, A light Fawn, REALLY!

But Daphne is a very impressive gal that has awesome genetics and a beautiful dense, fine and crimpy fleece! Her ancestors include: Snowmass Nova, PPeruvian Felix, Incan Magic, Peruvian Jericho, Peruvian Black Pearl, Victor’s Vic Jr., Pacific Crest Camilio’s Phoenicia and Altiplano Gold! That is an impressive line-up.

Daphne was born late in our season and was not cria shorn so we chose not to show her, but that doesn’t mean she isn’t impressive. As she has matured, we appreciate her even more. She is a fading light fawn so parts of her fleece are Light Fawn, but other parts are Beige. We love her crimp and her amazing brightness. We would love to keep Daphne, but we have her Dam, and her Granddam, so with too many females on the farm, we reluctantly are placing Daphne on our sales list.

You won’t be disappointed with this female as she has deep color in her pedigree, and she will bring wonderful fiber characteristics to a colored breeding program. We’ve posted 2 photos of her fleece so that you can get an idea of its beauty. 1 is of her juvenile fleece and one photo was taken 12/31/17! With only 225 days of growth, Daphne’s Juvenile fleece had an impressive 4” of growth! Amazing!
