Sandra's Beautiful Black Satin Angora

The Satin Angora breed in general is still lagging behind in density when comparing to the other three breeds of Angoras.   At Portland, we saw the result of Sandra's Satin Angora improvement project.   The black doe that she showed was very dense.

 The body type is excellent too.


Got everything down but still needs a bit of work on the sheen.

Sandra is up to the challenge, we are expecting to see even better Satin Angora in the next convention.
