Like many of his paternal siblings Man in Black is unmistakably a son of Champion Fawn Herdsire, CCNF Royal Ring of Fire. With the possible exceptions of Legacy Gold and Archangel no other male in Cas-Cad-Nac has been capable of stamping both their phenotype and fleece characteristics into their offspring with such amazing consistency as Ring of Fire.
What is not widely known however is that though Man In Black and his sire before him owe much to the genetic power of Snowmass Royal Rose (MiB's paternal grandsire) and Peruvian Hemingway (MiB's paternal great grandsire)they owe at least an equal debt to Ring of Fire's dynamic dam, 5Peruvian Margarita. It is from his paternal granddam that Man In Black so clearly inherited the head, heavy bone, and unmistakable presence. And that is still only part of the equation!
Then there is the matter of the silky black fleece that he inherited from his dam, Victoria. The same fleece qualities that made Victoria a multiple Champion have been passed on to Man In Black as well as his full sibling, Concordia currently on CCNF's show string.
Man in Black’s crias starting arriving in August 2010 and like their sire have a beautiful head, heavy bone, with silky fleece. Of the 15 cria born to-date, out of fawn to black dams, all have been black except for one brown. If you are looking for potent, proven genetics in a highly decorated dark colored Herdsire then Man in Black is for you!
NEWS UPDATE: Man In Black won the 2011 MAPACA Junior Herdsire of the Year!
Matrix's Golden Bliss of ELK
| 35286264 | Light Brown |
This is truly an exciting package for those colored breeders out there. Matrix’s Golden Bliss of ELK is the brown daughter of the incredible Snowmass Matrix. He is the FINEST FLEECED, HIGHEST CURVATURE QUECHUA SON STANDING IN THE WORLD AND TRULY ONE IN A MILLION. Matrix still boasts an amazing 17.7 micron at 12 years of age.
Bliss has fineness, uniformity and density all on a well-balanced frame and she has excellent mothering skills. She is confirmed to CCNF Man In Black for a 2016 June cria. Man In Black is a 4x banner winner and 2011 MAPACA Junior Herdsire of the year. In fact, his son WP Johnny Cash sold at the 2015 Parade of Champions for $31,000.
Truly descended from royalty. This richly colored light brown male sports a white beard to add to his distinction. His pedigree includes maternal grandsire, Snowmass Matrix, 4Peruvian Legacy, PPPeruvian Augusto, and PPPeruvian Mr. President. His sire is CCNF Man in Black, son of CCNF Ring of Fire, with Peruvian Hemingway in the not too distant background. And then there is Snowmass Nova. Lots of color here coupled with crimpy fineness. Add good bone and that royal stance and you have the basis of a good herdsire.
