Sire: RR GUN'S KIT CARSON ARI# 30669109 Medium Silver Grey  
Dam: SNOWMASS BRAVEHEART'S CHARM ARI# 31332118 Dark Silver Grey  
Service Sire: RR LEGATO GRIGIO ARI# 31620031 Medium Silver Grey, Dark Rose Grey Due Date: 3/22/2018  


There's lots to like about Kit Carson's offspring and Jasmine is no exception. She has a non fading beautifully organized fleece with the density, brightness and length that you would expect from his progeny.
Want persitant fineness...have a look at the serial histograms at both parents who possess 22 micron fleece at age 6 (dad) and 7 (mom, Snowmass Braveheart's Charm). As for Jasmine, 21 microns with a comfort factor of 97.9% (i.e. 2% of fibers over 30 micron), is a very commendable fleece in black.
Both sire and dam have outstanding producers.

For her current breeding we have chosen RR Dizzy Gillespie, our "chosen" Legato Grigio son. He was selected for his sturdy compact phenotype, outstanding fleece and follicle testing (by skin biopsy) analytics and his dominant roan genetics.

Dizzy is what is referred to as a "strawberry roan" (modern light rose grey in the show ring). He is one a large number of roans that we have been breeding for in our herd with a dominant pattern of inheritance through three generations. The genomics are are continuing to be evaluated in the grey color genetics study being currently done by Kylie Munyard PhD and Samantha Brooks PhD.

The full genomic sequence is being done on the Dizzy Gillespie and 17 of his relatives...and more to come.
None of the roans have anything other than complete color uniformity in the blanket.
We believe that genomic markers will result in the breeder using him to have the earliest use of genomics to develop a breeding strategy and will mirror the experience of roan horse breeders.

We are very optimistic about the outcome of this pregnancy next spring.
