To say I was surprised when I observed PBR Divine Embraced by the Light's head emerge into life with a white beard and stripping on his ankle would be an understatement. He certainly lives up to his name! He is the handsome son of R Creek's Divine World, offspring of Snowmass Divine Love and, boy, does Brace remind me of him. Furthermore, Brace has genetics from his sire's side with many well-known names such as Legacy, Augusto, Bueno, Hemingway and Caligula. Not only that, but he comes by his colorful pedigree from his dam's side of her family tree. Cacao Chanel of PBR's beautiful sire was harlequin/appaloosa producer Vintage Cashmere U-Taupe-ia. PBR Divine Embraced by the Light has it all....pedigree, color, fine and dense fleece! What a pleasure to see him expressing those appaloosa traits! As he grows, he impresses me with his macho-looking stance much like his grandsire, Snowmass Divine Love, and fine, crimpy dark fleece.
Cacao Chanel of PBR, PBR Divine Embraced by the Light's dam, was a lovely chocolate brown, and her personality was sweet. She inherited that beautiful color from her g-sire Skywalker by Poseidon of FDA. Her perfectly formed ears have bay black tips, which led us to believe that she could throw color, which is what she threw! Her breeding to R Creek's Divine World produced a rare appaloosa with fine fleece, PBR Divine Embraced by the Light. She exhibited an excellent phenotype and a beautiful fleece with lots of crimp, a soft hand and first place at the 2018 California Classic, not surprising with g-sires Rembrandt El Nino and Aussie Rockford.
Like his sire Snowmass Divine Love, R Creek's Divine World is a proven, champion-producing macho who adds outstanding crimp characteristics, magnificent bone structure, extraordinary phenotype and great fleece length to his incredible offspring. He displays ELITE fleece characteristics with exquisite bundling, a superior head, and fleece with advanced crimp and magnificent density. He is the unique blending of the Hemingway and Bueno lines. With perfect conformation and coverage from head to toe on a large solid frame, robust frame, R Creek's Divine World is a phenotypically excellent herdsire.
