I am very pleased to announce that Borealis has been consigned to the 2020 CNASF Lottery Sale. She is lot # 11, and tickets will be available to draw for her on March 21. Her new owner will be picked at 6:30pm. You can learn more about her and the Lottery HERE.

 

Borealis is a lovely, heavy fleeced female with a easy temperament and an abundance of long, lustrous fleece that practically shines like gold. 

 

She is confident, well mannered, and is a problem solver, making her a pleasure to work with. Borealis has enjoyed robust health, and has successfully balanced heavy fleece growth with steady, uninterrupted physical growth as a cria into a tui with little difficulty.

 

Borealis' parents were selected based on their strong traits in consistency, fleece length, and low micron, in addition to the hopes that their tendency towards lower medullation would pass forward as well. I am pleased to see many of her sire and dam's traits running true with Borealis. She is continuing to grow an ultra fine fleece displaying excellent staple length across the blanket and into her neck and leg, while maintaining a good degree of organization and an overall pleasant crimp style. Borealis has had outstanding, greasy lustre from day one and maintains this lustre from skin to tip, leaving her practically glowing in even low light conditions. 

 

Solidly built, and extremely correct, Borealis has the makings of an excellent future dam who should have no difficulties raising vigorous cria herself when the time comes. I am particularly pleased with the depth of her chest and her overall stance, being very upright, square. Her dam has proven to be an excellent producer with great milking abilities, with Borealis having doubled her weight in less than 20 days, and maintained that trajectory well into weaning, where she didn't miss a beat transitioning. 

 

Genetically, Borealis is an exciting combination of not only well known and successful Canadian Lines; but also well known and loved American Lines alongside Australian lines that are extremely uncommon in North America, with Borealis' great-great-great-grandsire Purrembete Ledger's Dream being one of Australia's "Big Five". There are only two direct descendants of Ledger's Dream having been recognized in Canada, and 37 "grandchildren" in sum between them.
