The word Tigris is an Asian word that translates as "fast". Little Tigris came out of her mother running at 13 pounds, a fitting name. Tigris is the first cria combination from both our sires, Hemingway's Bogart and Peruvian Prophecy. Bogart is the sire and the Dam Sophia is out of our first hersire Prophecy. This has made for a wealth of good fiber traits and EPDs. Dam Sophia is out of one our very first purchases LaPoudre who is now 16 and still producing, unfortunately Sophia passed last year unexpectedly. Poudre has done well for us as a start up dam and contributed improvement in staple length for all her progeny, including Tigris. We are excited for this offspring and look forward to long lived foundation dam in our program. She has such wonderful genetics both up and down, which includes some old school genetics of El Bello and Hemingway.
Tigris's first histogram this year did not disappoint us. She has an AFD of 14.7 and the most amazing SD of 3.1. We are now on our third generation of using EPDs to guide our breeding program and it definitely is showing in our newest offspring, including Tigris. She is the whole fiber package for any breeding program. One female you could base your entire program upon, she is that valuable.
Tigris's as a yearling who has stunning white fine fiber. Beautiful bundling, long staple, density and the character is also beautiful with soft handle and lots of luster. No doubt the combination of sires, Bogart and Prophecy have brought about this beautiful fiber on this young girl, born out by the statistics on her histogram.
We did not show any of our juveniles this year because we moved our business and you know how that goes. Also the one show we were going to enter got cancelled due to California wildfires. We may take Tigris to the Futurity as a yearling.
