Golden Thunder was the most-talked-about lot offered in the AOBA National Auction where we bought him, and one look will tell you why. With his rich, dense, abundant fleece on a solid frame, strong typey head, stately bearing and air of confidence, Thunder definitely stands out in a crowd.

His beautiful, well nourished fiber has an incredibly soft handle and well defined crimp that is consistent throughout the staple and from head to toe. His first-year histogram showed an AFD of 16.5, which is great, but even greater is that his 2018 AFD was 19.5 at 10 years of age!

Thunder's sire is Sunset Hills Farm Andean Gold, who -- at almost 9 years of age -- took a Color Champion banner (his 9th) AND the prestigious Judges' Choice award at the 2011 Buckeye Show. Andean Gold's offspring have had fine, crimpy and dense fleece that shows its best as the years progress, never losing their fineness.

Golden Thunder himself has collected a whopping 11 Color Championships, two Reserve Color Championships and the Judge's Choice Award.
