Rainman has started breeding here on the farm and and is now ready (and very willing!) for outside breedings. Addtional discount provided if purchasing multiple breedings; if you live within 200 miles of our farm we are also open to providing mobile breeding services.

There is always some amount of risk when choosing a herdsire to impact the next generation within a herd. With that said I would like to point out that making those choices is also making an investment in your herd and the future of your farm. When making investments there is risk . . . . . and then there is 'calculated' risk . . . . . . . certainly when you pick a proven herdsire with many offspring on the ground it is a way of minimizing that investment risk. Where Rainman is concerned we recognize there is risk as he is young and has not proven himself with outstanding offspring YET!

A few reasons that we chose to take a calculated risk by purchasing this outstanding male AND the reason we are breeding the majority of our females to him:

*Sire - A.L. Paca's Andromeda Galaxy (11x Champion/17x Blue Ribbon Winner and sire to MANY outstanding offspring)

*Dam - A.L. Paca's Revlon (3x Champion/4x Blue Ribbon Winner)

*Paternal Grandsire - Sheer Galaxy (6xChampion/9x Get of Sire Winner)
*Maternal Grandsire - A.L. Paca's Revolution (17x Champion)

In addition to his very impressive ARI Certificate Rainman has a winning personality; he is well mannered and easy to handle AND he loves his new job of "herdsire". And of course along with everything else he has amazing fleece. Please feel free to call us if you have any questions or would like to have a fleece sample; better yet stop by the farm and meet him for yourself!

UPDATE: We have three offspring here on the farm sired by Rainman (2 female/1 male) and each one of them has lovely uniform fleece covering sturdy conformationally correct bodies. To make things even better each one of them has Rainman's gentle personality.
