If you're looking for a herdsire with Defiance genetics and that unmistakeable Defiance presence, look no further than Pandemonium. And, the look isn't all he's got. 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 that was 20.2 micron. 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%. Stands to reason with his dam having five traits in the top 1% and one in the top 5%.
All of the traits that we breed for come together in Defiance (Pandemonium's sire)– impeccable fineness, uniformity, brightness, density and high curvature in a merino-style fleece. His exquisite fleece is carried on a strong frame with the impressive substance of bone. This 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. These advanced heritable characteristics are expressed in Defiance’s superior fleece that hardly changes 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. A gorgeous beige with density, crimp, and attitude, she is one to pay attention to. 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 just simply can't be beaten. Perfection not only has a bright royal fleece (15.6 microns with an SD 3.3, CV 21.4% and >30 of 0,5%) but she also has a mean curvature of 60.7.
