Jem is a gem. Like his dam, he has so much personality, & a great mix of genetics, fiber, and color.

Jem inherited so much from both of his parents, with Thunderstorm (the stunning son of our late gentle giant-LPS Trujillo, & proud grandson of the Canadian champion, Pperuvian Javier), and Arctic Pearl, who was sired by our multi-blue ribbon winning, exceptionally dense herdsire-Snowmass Snow Legend--who's sire is the great Snowmass Incaaccoyo Star & grandsire is Snowmaster himself, & LPS Lucia Fernandez, one of our best almost exclusive female producers as her mother.

With Jem comes a line of lingering fineness (meaning their fleece stays fine). His maternal grandsire, Snowmass Snow Legend had an AFD of whopping 14.4 (year 1); 18.8 (year 3); 20.7 (year 5); & 21.6 (year 8).
His maternal granddam, LPS Lucia Fernandez shows: 17.4 (year 1); 22 (6 years); & 22.8 (year 9)!!!

Jem's own dam-Pearl's histograms show incredible fineness: At 1 year of age, her AFD was: 20.8; 2nd year: 19.1; 3rd year: 21.5; 4th year: 19.2; 5th year: 19.5
Pearl's full sisters show the same:
Carol: 1 year: 17.9; 2nd year: 19.8; 3rd year: 19; 4th year: 21.5; 5th year: 20.7; 6th year: 20.4
Beauty: 1 year: 16.7; 2nd year: 17.5; 3rd year: 18.7; 4th year: 17.1
Selah: 1 year: 17.3; 2nd year: 16.4

Packed jam full of the amazing quality genetics of Jolimont Gold Dust, Snowmaster, Snowmass Incaaccoyo Star, Peruvian Javier, & Zhanna Sunrise, plus his quality fleece characteristics, Jem is the perfect pick to add these rare genetics to your herd.

NOTE: Jem's pricing does not at all reflect his fleece, confirmation, or temperament's characteristics. We just need to make more room for the crias who are going to be born this year.
