Proven Line-Bred Genetics

Colonial Athena

ARI# 36000524   D.O.B. 8/31/2020 (1 yr)

Huacaya, Cria Female, Unproven | White

Service Sire:     

Who's your Daddy: CCNF Bataclan, his 2019 and first to hit the ground progeny, took 10 first places, 2 Reserve Championships, 7 Championships, and two Judges Choice Fleece awards in 2020. Imagine if the same progeny were in the show ring. After his 2020 progeny hit the ground, CCNF wrote, "Bataclan is now officially the lead Herdsire in our breeding program."

Now, combine CCNF Bataclan with Colonial Bianca, and you get a glimmer of the potential in the pictures. A lovely bright fleece, beautiful crimp with great density. She is showing a great head style and bone. I'm hopeful that she will enter the ring this fall.

Colonial Athena is line-bred on the incomparable Snowmass Elite Legend line (CCNF Bataclan & CCNF Defiance) and CCNF Archangel. HOWEVER, look closely at CCNF Daliance and Colonial Jayne. One could breed to the MFI Peruvian Precocious, Snowmass Sub-Zero, or CCNF Royal Ring Ring of Fire lines without risking complete out-cross breeding. In other words, Colonial Athena could be an asset in many breeders' programs.

Linebreeding is highly strategized breeding to close relatives to lock in desirable traits. Linebreeding seeks to convey outstanding genetics from one generation to another while minimizing the transfer of undesirable traits.

"Every generation, each parent passes half their chromosomes to their child. If nothing happened to the chromosomes between generations, then there would be around a 1 in 8 chance that you would get no DNA from a great, great, great grandparent.

What most people forget, though, is that our chromosomes get mixed and matched before they are passed on. It is because of this "recombination" that your great, great, great grandparent's DNA is almost certainly still lurking in yours." Arjun Adhikari
