UPDATE: Savannah delivered a beautiful medium brown female sired by Jefferson and is being a doting mother - given her age, we will be giving her a year off between cria from this point forward.

Savannah is a dark brown, full Peruvian daughter of Rufino, an excellent stud from the last import. Rufino’s breeding career was unfortunately cut short after he had produced only a small number of offspring. His genetics may be hard to come by, but they are coveted by discerning breeders. Savannah’s dam is another ’98 import that has also produced her share of champions, including Amante Romántico, winner of eight blue ribbons, two championships and four reserves in his second fleece. Savannah clearly has premier genetics on both sides of her pedigree.

Savannah herself has produced outstanding cria, with many having excellent show careers. Savannah has proven herself to be a good mother with plenty of milk and easy, unassisted births. Her cria are well locked, lustrous and very typey suris. Savannah is maintaining an under 30 micron fleece despite her age and breeding career, and her offspring are also maintaining fineness into their middle years. She also has amazing luster for a breeding female of her age.

All of the cria Savannah has had for us have excellent fiber characteristics, including superior luster and good density. They have relocked beautifully after shearing as well. Savannah is capable of producing black when bred to black, as her 2010 cria Morimiril shows. Her 2011 cria by Captain Morgan's Blackbeard is a gorgeous deep, dark mahogany brown with black points male, while her 2013 cria by Titan of PVA is a carbon copy of his mother.

We decided to enter Savannah in the Spinoff at the 2011 Suri Network show to see how a production dam with seven cria under her belt would stack up - how's 8.5/10 for luster at 11 years old? Savannah racked up 79.5/100 points and we were pretty impressed. There's a reason she's a foundation dam...
