Tâd is a vigorous, well conformed young female with high luster, soft handle and excellent fineness, along with what appears to be very good density. She really makes you look twice at her in the barn with her confidence and bearing, not to mention her good looks. Tâd's pedigree boasts Bruxo, Baccarat, MacGyver and Sedoso, among others, and we believe she will be an asset to our breeding program. Her mother is the daughter of one of our best dam's, and the mothering characteristics of the line can't be beat. She also shares the curiosity and engaging character of the line - she always has her nose in your business, without being pushy.

Tâd's regrowth shows good character and excellent length. She absolutely deserved to be shown as a juvenile, but circumstances prevented it - her fleece did place 5th in a very competitive class at the Suri Network All Suri Fiber Show, only two points behind the first place fleece. She received 18.5/20 for fineness and handle, and 16/20 for luster. The judge commented "Excellent fineness and very soft handle. Also, very uniform fleece." Her fleece then racked up first in spinoff, first in cottage, best hand and best luster in the MAPACA Jubilee, one of the most competitive suri fleece shows in the country.
