Foundation Herd

We have over 50 Suris in our herd - some for sale, but many considered foundation animals.  Below is only a sampling.  Our foundations girls typically fall into one of two following categories:  

The first is a group of animals that will just never leave the farm - either because of their phenominal track record in producing high quality offspring, or because their genetics are rare enough that we want to keep them in the herd permanently.  

The second is a group of animals that has top-notch fiber statistics and whose genetics we want to add to the foundation herd, so we are not offering them for sale at this time.  However, once we have gotten a high quality cria out of them - male or female, we move them to the sales page.  

We do not sell unproven animals. We make sure that all animals designated as breeders have a track record of producing healthy crias!

The girls listed below represent the ideals that we are striving for in our breeding program and should give you a good idea of where we are going and the high quality that we offer for sale.
