Breaking News! Dasher is a two time Color Champion. In his first show entered, Dasher took 1st place and 'Medium' Color Champion at the Fiber Fusion Northwest Fleece Show under judge Ruth Elvestad with excellent scores in uniformity and 15/15 for brightness. His second Championship was High Score at the AOA Spin-Off in 2014.

Banderas' Dasher has a breathtaking fleece with silky handle, great density, and lovely crimp style. He has always had that 'look at me' (shall we say 'dashing'?) presence as well. His head is very typey just like his dam's and his legs are straight and balanced with a nice broad chest. Dasher has elite genetics as well as depth of color in his background including grey. He would be wonderful for any color breeding program.

Dasher's sire is multi-champion rose grey Spanish Peaks Banderas. Banderas is producing amazing fineness (as low as 15 microns) on a variety of gorgeous colors including grey and black. He is a Victor grandson and his parents are directly from the Snowmass breeding program. Banderas has also produced top award winners including National Brown Color Champion Sweet Pines Torino, Dasher's 3/4 brother.

Dasher's dam, Sweet Pines Ciera, also has wonderful genetics and fineness in her background: top Peruvian herdsires 4Peruvian Legacy and Peruvian El Moustachio. Ciera is an award winner for her fleece and maintains a low micron very soft fleece well into adulthood. She has produced wonderful offspring, all of them with lasting fineness.
