Golden Thunder was the most-talked-about lot offered in the AOBA National Auction where we bought him, and one look will tell you why. With his rich, dense, abundant fleece on a solid frame, strong typey head, stately bearing and air of confidence, Thunder definitely stands out in a crowd.

His beautiful, well nourished fiber has an incredibly soft handle and well defined crimp that is consistent throughout the staple and from head to toe. His first-year histogram showed an AFD of 16.5, which...

Bidding Info


This handsome dark-brown champion has proven genetics, good fiber stats, and a pleasing phenotype.

He is Snow Diamond THUNDER BAY, a uniform dark brown, accented by black points on his ears, muzzle and feet. His dense fleece is also very fine, which helps to explain the lovely soft hand. His crimp starts at the skin and continues to the tip, and it holds up beautifully throughout the fleece.

Thunder Bay's 5th year fiber stats are good (see chart above and right, under photo), especially for a dark brown male. His EPDs are also strong, with most traits ranking in the 6 - 25% range. He has sired a daughter, who was sold to a farm in Bend, Oregon.

Thunder Bay is out of Loretta, a fine, amazingly uniform light-brown female that has given us four outstanding crias, two of them champions!

Thunder Bay's sire is 13X Champion, Judges Choice and Get of Sire winner, Sunset Hills Golden Thunder. Many of Thunder's crias are champions.
