Description

Pippin has excellent conformation, a solid frame and desirable head type. He has a reasonably dense and very fine fleece with a superb crimp style that extends all over, a nice slick handle, brightness and staple length. Pippin is another of our stud boys who has maintained exceptional fineness. As he has a brown spot, we usually put him to fawn and brown girls. However, he has produced a solid mid fawn boy from a beige, a solid white girl from a dark fawn and a solid mid fawn boy from a white.

So far, all of his offspring have been solid coloured with excellent conformation, head type and fleece quality.

Pippin is definitely worth considering in any breeding programme, especially if cost is a factor, but one doesn't wish to sacrifice on quality (if he didn't have a brown spot his fees would be higher!). His father is a highly successful stud with large numbers of prize winning progeny and his mother has always produced superb cria, all of whom have been successful in the show ring. Pippin's fleece statistics are fabulous and show that he is holding his fineness (inspite of being somewhat portly!) His daughter, Snowshill Seraphina, was 2nd Intermediate Fawn at the 2011 National Show and has been well placed in a number of fleece shows including Champion Fawn and Best British Bred huacaya in the 2012 Three Counties Fleece Show. His son, Snowshill Geronimo, was 2nd placed junior Beige fleece in the 2011 Scottish National fleece show (2nd only to Snowshill Ramises, the Champion Beige Fleece) ,4th placed junior beige fleece at the WAC International Fleece Show, 2nd in the 2012 Three Counties Fleece Show (again only losing to Ramises) and 1st placed intermediate beige fleece at the 2012 HoE fleece show. He has been placed no lower than second (light class)in all three fleece shows entered in 2013. Both of Pippin's 2012 cria (a solid white girl and solid fawn boy)have been well placed in all shows entered. We continue to include Pippin in our breeding programme.

PIPPIN RETIRED FROM STUD DUTIES IN 2016, BUT IS STILL AROUND AND HE'S LIVING AT SUTTON GRANGE IN HEREFORDSIRE.
