Gender: Female
Fineness, density and great genetics!


Evanka is a Defiance daughter, and a Golden Thunder granddaughter, which helps to explain why her fleece has an abundance of fineness and density. When we say fineness, we mean the long-lasting variety that lasts late into life. Defiance maintains his fineness, sporting an 18.7 micron fleece at seven years of age, and Thunder is still producing 19.5 micron fleece at 10 years of age! Animals from lines like these produce baby-grade fleece or better year after year, and their owners get top dollar for their fleece year after year.

Evanka's dam is Evening Thunder, whose EPDs ranked her in the Top 3% for AFD and SF,  and the Top 10% for SDAFD, %>30 and MC. Unfortunately, Evening Thunder died this year of megaesophagus, leaving her male cria an orphan at two months of age. As we began the bottle-feeding routine, we realized that Evanka, was watching us every step of the way, and intervening if she thought we were getting too close to her baby brother. As a one-year-old maiden, she didn't have any milk to give him, but she took over as mother in every other way. The two were inseparable for months, and the mutual support that brother and sister gave each other was a beautiful thing to see.

Now that little brother is a healthy and independent yearling, Evanka is ready to have her own baby, and we have no doubt she will be an attentive and loving mom.
