Description

We couldn't have ordered up a more desired Legato Grigio son to carry on our "modern" grey breeding program. Duke Ellington is out of one of our very best production females.
He is a stunning "blue roan". We expect that he will show the same pattern of dominant grey inheritance as his sire, RR Legato Grigio. LG has been one of the most prepotent males that we have worked over the years and his production rivals that of his renowned sire RR Gun's A'Blazin'.

He has had a very strong showing against competition and has superlative analytics in his skin biopsies done through Ian Watt:

Follicle density: 68.9/cm2
S/P: 10.5:1

in skin primary micron: 25.0 SD 3.3
In skin secondary micron: 20.7 SD 3.0

We could not give Duke the work he deserved on our ranch and finding a new ranch during a pandemic was not easy so we made the difficult decision to geld him to ease his hormonal desires and maintain his stunning, gorgeous soli medium silver grey fleece.
