Description
An imposing male, Velvet Voyager is a Best Man descendant on the dam side, and the multi-championship winner Snowmass Velvet Touche on the Sire side. When we made enquiries with Snowmass about him, Julie Skinner's answer was:
I know you have asked about Velvet Voyager. He is from one of our reserve Best Man daughters Snowmass Wedding Veil. I have him set to breed to our herd this year as he is now 2.5 years old. He was on our show string and took a 1st place at Futurity. I don't know if you saw him or how you came up with him as an option but you did so I feel compelled to share the information on him. I have to say in the same breath I really don't want to let him go.
He is an incredible Velvet Touche son and think one of our best medium Fawn males and with light genetics I think he will reproduce the lighter fawns very well which we need.
But as Don reminds me we need to make some sales to keep our business in check and you would represent him and our breeding program so well on your side of the world which inspires me to let him go.
