Just Smittens Argento

ARI# 35474449 | DOB: 7/11/2017
5X Champion!

Argento is a striking young male! He is a gray son of FTAF's Blackbeard and grandson of our Grand River Columbo. His conformation is spot on. He has a beautiful head. His fiber is very fine with excellent architecture. He exhibits very good density. As one walking fleece judge stated. "There really isn't much to improve on here. He is lovely." We agree! He really is a full package.

His bloodline is impressive. Blackbeard, Buccaneer, Pot of Gold & Royal Inca Lege...

Bidding Info


The definition of Hosannah is “used to express praise or adoration to God” and this gal is remarkable! Her fleece is gorgeous – vibrant dark fawn, consistent, tight zipper crimp, extreme fineness, outstanding density, staple length, matchstick micro bundles and wonderful handle. I know – it is hard to believe but she does have it all! To keep adding to her wowing attributes is a strong presence, full topknot, excellent typiness, total coverage, and picturesque conformation.

This is not only our opinion. It was proven through her 1st place and Color Champion banner she was awarded at the MIAF show.

How did she become so great? Like so many others – we have to give credit to her ancestors. Hosannah’s sire is the Snowmass Peruvian Casanova, who is arguably the sire of the most grey champion offspring above any other herdsire! He was awarded the prestigious AOBA Color Champion and the Futurity Herdsire of the Year awards! At 3 ½ year old he maintained an AFD of 18.3 and his recent histogram showed he was still under 25 at over 9 years old! A Casanova son was also awarded the Futurity Herdsire of the Year award and sold for over $300,000 in early 2006! This was the first time ever a sire and his progeny were both awarded the Futurity Herdsire of the Year!

Hosannah’s dam is JLFA Pot of Gold’s Halloween Treat, a multi champion gal who is outstanding and has some power packed genetics you are going to want! Her sire is Pot of Gold, a light brown male awarded several blue ribbons and is a multi Get of Sire winner! Pot of Gold’s sire is 5Peruvian Royal Inca Legend, a MSG Peruvian Import who is the sire of many legendary herdsires including Revelation! On Halloween Treat’s dam side, she is loaded up with MRG, MSG, LSG and TB genetics 5 generations back!

Hosannah has it all for someone looking for excellence and seeking to add grey to their herd. She has produced the beautiful HFAR Rosalinda, a medium silver grey female.
