At first glance of Bianca's pedigree, you would not consider her to be line-bred. However, a deeper delve into her genetics, and you find Peruvian Hemingway in generations 4, 5, and 6. Peruvian Augusto appears in generations 5 and 6 (sire and dam). Of equal importance to me, the dams Peruvian Andean Song is in generation 4 and 5 with PPPeruvian Duet twice in generation 5 (sire and dam). It's no wonder I chose CCNF Bataclan for her first breeding. The cria will be line-bred on Snowmass Elite Legend and CCNF Archangel (3rd and 4th generations).
"Every generation, each parent passes half their chromosomes to their child. If nothing happened to the chromosomes between generations, 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
Bianca has a beautiful long fiber length with excellent bone, a lovely head, great coverage, and overall I couldn't be more pleased. Hats off to her sire CCNF Defiance.
Bianca delivered her first cria on 8/31/2020 (Colonial Athena), Sire: CCNF Bataclan, and she looks very promising.
