If you're looking for a herd sire with Defiance genetics and that unmistakable Defiance presence, look no further than Pandemonium. His fleece is fine, fine, fine. Snow Diamond Pandemonium's 2019 fiber stats are: AFD 13.3, SD 2.9, CV 21.7 and >30 0.3. At the ABR Fall Fest fleece show, AOA Judge Diana Timmerman noted his nice crimp amplitude, excellent hand, a high degree of brightness and staple length. One would expect Pandemonium to exhibit lasting fineness in that his dam, Matrix Perfection, had a nine-year fleece of 20.2 microns. Her other 2019 fiber stats are SD 2.9, CV 14.8 and >30 0.3. Pandemonium has four EPD traits in the top 1%. It stands to reason, with his dam having five traits in the top 1% and one in the top 5%, Pandemonium is aging very well, retaining his lasting fineness. I'm excited that he has proven to add his fineness and undeniable head to the herd. To date he has four crias on the ground; PBR Definitely Spot On (sold), PBR Definitely Bright Stargazer (sold), the biggest surprise PBR Definitely N Perfect Harmony, a fine appaloosa! (sold), and to date a male, PBR Pandemonium's Arctic Chaos (sold in utero).
All the traits come together in Snowmass Defiance (Pandemonium's sire)– impeccable fineness, uniformity, brightness, density and high curvature in a merino-style fleece. A strong frame with the impressive substance of bone carries his exquisite fleece. Snowmass Defiance is one beautiful male! Defiance's genetics combines the lasting fineness found in the Hemingway and Legacy lines with the low medullation for which the Elite line is particularly well known. Defiance's superior fleece expresses these advanced heritable characteristics that hardly change from one year to the next. At seven years of age, Defiance’s 2016 histogram was: AFD 18.7; SD 3.1; CV 16.5; %>30 0.3 and MC 69.4. Defiance is in the top 1% of EPDs for five traits: AFD, SDAFD, SF, %>30 and MC. He has won numerous awards and championships, including the 2013 and 2014 IAO Supreme Champion male.
Pandemonium's dam, Snowmass Matrix Perfection, is simply perfect. She is one to watch as a gorgeous beige female with density, crimp, and attitude. She is a full sister to Snowmass Matrix Belvedere, a 5X color champion winner. Her dam, Snowmass Bright Stars (winner of multiple Produce of Dam awards), is a maternal sister to Snowmass Enlightenment, the highest-selling male at the 2009 Futurity. Add her sire Snowmass Matrix to the mix, and this is a genetic package that is unbeatable. Perfection has a bright royal fleece (15.6 microns with an SD 3.3, CV 21.4% and >30 of 0,5%) and a mean curvature of 60.7.
