Today, we welcomed the first ever cria sired by our rose grey stud, AML El Duro's Vivanno. Despite being a top-tier male, Vivanno wasn't bred by his previous owners because they weren't really breeding for grey. So, at age seven, this is his very first cria.
This guy was worth the wait.
Mom is nice, but I'd describe her as just that -- nice. She is not at all outstanding. She has an okay head. She's square and correct, but her bone and coverage (the fleece on the legs) is pretty average. She has very poor density and almost no crimp.
Vivanno improved on all of these things, and then some. Our next cria due by him are out of some seriously high quality dams, so these should be pretty exciting.
I mean, check out that head.
K writes this stuff, for some reason that has yet to become apparent.
