Proudly co-owned with Laurel Ridge. Because David Nopper does such phenomenal write-ups on his animals, we asked permission to share his write-up for Poseidon.
"When we went in search for a Stud to compliment our breeding program we had a specific criteria and Poseidon's Storm ticked the boxes. One of our favorite Studs of all time is Snowmass Royal Rose. He is a Hemingway crossed with MSG Dam line. So our search started there and it ended with Poseidon's Storm aka "Master P".
Stay with me here ... it may get confusing ( :-) ) or skip to the summary at the bottom:
Dam (Trillium) is a lined Hemingway Daughter - you can't see it on the ARI but Balche, way back there, is (Hemingway / P. Frida). So that puts Hemingway on both sides of Trillium's lineage. What's interesting is that Poseidon's Dam line, even with the Hemingway dilution gene, allowed a lot of color to pass through to the off-spring. It's there in the registry to view!
On his Sire side, you have top EPD performers, MSG & MRG genetics with some TB thrown in.
Totora (Poseidon's Sire) has an excellent Get of Sire record and his overall show record will knock your socks off.
Inti-Sapa's Sunrise is an EPD 1%'er and multiple category 5%'er
Luciano was a top MRG Stud w/ 137 registered Cria, many of which were show awarded.
Poseidon Storm aka "Master P" has not only a beautiful fleece, which is dense & bundled ... But, it's also showing lingering fineness. A trait that goes back to his Dam side, Hemingway roots.
Take a look at his histogram ... not just the MC but equally important his SD & CV numbers from 2016 & 2017. When his fleece is processed into yarn, it has this silky slick hand - it's really something.
Long and short of it, we didn't realize we'd fine such a great Stud so close to home, but we did.
We did our homework so you don't have to. This boy is something and he's going to prove us right.
We're breeding him to many of our top females this coming year. You can get in on his introductory fee since his first babies will be arriving in 2018. There is a discount offered for drive-by breedings.
We'll have Cria to view toward the end of Summer .... come by and visit us!"
HISTOGRAM (Lingering Fineness):
2017: 20.8 / 3.7 / 16.6 / - 3 years old
2016: 22.0 / 3.5 / 16.9 - 2 years old
Poseidon's yearling crias are looking absolutely fantastic! Both of his daughters on our farm are conformationally stunning and have amazingly soft and crimpy fiber!
Both our farm and Laurel Ridge have decided to put Posiedon up for sale since we each have several new herdsires we are using and we already have beautiful offpsring from him!
