PBR GUN-METAL BUGATTI is sophisticated, innovative, and iconic; a unique masterpiece of art that pushes boundaries beyond imagination. He owes his distinctive character to a family of harlequins and appaloosas, who strive to offer the extraordinary, the unrivaled, the best. Every element of PBR GUN-Metal BUGATTI including his epds (19 afd) are a combination of reminiscence to his bloodlines with names such as Vintage Cashmere U-Taupe-ia, Aussie Rockford, Hannahruh, Royal Fawn and Peruvian Victor on the top and Hemingway and Star Khan on the bottom. He is a breathtaking accomplishment.
PBR GUN-METAL BUGATTI's sires, Vintage Cashmere's U-Taupe-ia, biopsy (September, 2016) results are... Density: 53.6 mm; Secondary: Primary fiber ratio: 9.7:1; In-skin mean primary fiber diameter: 25.3 microns / SD 4 microns; In-skin mean secondary fiber diameter: 21.1 microns SD 3.8. Bioposy sample was extracted by Ian Watt personally. He has a super long staple length (in the top 6% EPD 2016), with high frequency, medium amplitude crimp.
Our Shiloh's Sahara, BUGATTI's dam, has aged beautifully with her Hemingway-style crimp and lasting fineness she inherited from her multi-champion sire, Derwydd Peruvian Inti-Taqna. As one of only a few special daughters of Derwydd Pervian Inti-Taqna ever to be offered at PBR, Our Shiloh's Sahara has everything you'd expect....gorgeous fleece, excellent phenotype, well-balanced structure and an elite fleece exhibiting high-frequency, high-amplitude crimp. Her bloodlines are stacked with names like Peruvian Hemingway, Polaris, Snowmass /Cchatanca, Derwydd Peruvian Inti-Sapa, Cchacuri and much, much more! Her sire, Derwydd Inti-Taqna displays a Hemingway-style crimp along with fineness and maintains a 23 micron at 10 years old. He passes on a recessive gene that has proven to be a successful indicator that a female can produce a Harlequin when bred to a Harlequin herd sire. His numbers speak for themselves at top 5% for afd and %f>30 and top10% for sf and mc. The same thing can be said for her dam, BMR Sienna. Every one of Sienna's cria has the low amplitude, high-frequency crimp. Two of Sienna's other cria also took 1st places in the show ring. That lasting fineness in fleeces is apparent in Our Shiloh's Sahara's sixth-year fleece reporting a 20.9 micron!
