Patagonia's Calafate was assessed by Amanda VandenBosch as an A- female with a soft hand, good length for staple, even uniformity of light and dark grey, lack of medullation, uniformity of micron, and good overall appearance. Calafate's sire is Patagonia's El Vasco, a beautiful black male sired by the exotic Patagonia's Neruda. Her dam, Sstar's Belana is the daughter of multi-champion Kaspa.
Looking at her female cria shows you what she can produce. Estates Silver Calliope is stunning just to look at with no spots in the blanket, and she has her dam's sweet disposition. The cria has beautiful, bright crimp into the underbelly, and great coverage on her legs. Yocom testing: AFD: 19.2; SD: 3.9; CV: 20.3; %>30: 1.8.
