We are excited that we've joined with Reiling Ranch as co-owners of this great young herdsire. He has incredibly dense, consistent, and supremely fine fleece with a very tight crimp style (Yes it shows in the background of his main picture). With his second shearing AFD of 16.6 Microns and a 99.5% Comfort factor, he's a tribute to his lineage. Vertigo is a Snowmass Porteus (MB) son and Snowmass XXXtreme (LBMB) grandson. Additionally, Vertigo's Dam, Snowmass Midnight's Dawn, has the elite black genetics of Condori and Midnight Magic, making him one of our "go to" guys for color. As you can see, powerful, full Peruvian genetics run deep in his blood. He is dense, incredibly consistent, shiny, fine, strong bone and conformation - EVERYTHING you could want in a service sire.

Be sure to click on his ARI Certificate and Histogram for more details. His fleece stats are awesome and his pedigree reflects some killer genetics beyond his award winning sire and dam. Snowmass Xxxtreme, S. Royal Rose, Hemingway, S. Casanova, Bueno, S. Midnight Magic, 5Peruvian Condori (top black female import), Matador, and more. As far as color goes, he carries a wide variety which gives great potential that he will pass on his excellent fleece and body while enhancing the dam's color.

His first cria have hit the ground last year and they are strong and range from Med Fawn (beige dam) to True Black (dark dam) and also a beautiful dark silver grey (Silver grey dam)! So far when has been bred to black or grey he is producing black or grey - so he is breeding as a true black!! He definitely brings out the color and with his density and fineness, these are going to be great animals as they mature!

We can also discuss a short term lease if interested. Always looking for ways to make things work for our customers!!
