This boy has had a jumbled past. He made a dashing start, winning ribbons in halter and fleece, and was destined to be a herdsire. But his owners retired, and he moved on. His next owners planned on using him as a Jr. Herdsire, but a customer building a fiber herd just had to have him, so he moved again. Jump forward many years, the fiber herd was being dispersed, and I was able to get him. Not in his prime anymore, but still so dense! He has white guard hairs poking out, but those can easily be removed by a dehairing machine. And still decent crimp for a boy his age. Will be getting fiber samples tested this spring.

I wanted him, as his sire is Monticiello, a great Felix son I had purchased, but lost in a dog attack before I could get any cria from him. So now I have one! And this boy also has lots of grey in his bloodlines too! His mom, a Lanark's Matrix daughter, also produced a grey pinto, so lots of possibilities. His mom's maternal grandsire is Silver Bullet II, who from what I can tell, was an early Chilean import. Many of the early greys and blacks came out of Chile, not Peru.

Having not been around girls for years, he's still trying to figure them out. Hopefully, it will click soon. He really seems to be a true black in his blanket.
