Skin biopsy done in 2016. Great results - forthcoming. Please contact me if you need info prior to me posting. He should be ready for his herdsire career in late 2016 / early 2017. He wasn't quite ready in Spring 2016.

Histogram results at 21 months of age: 17.8 AFD, 4.1 SD, 23.1 CV, and 1.7>30.

Skin Biopsy Results at 3.5 years old:
Density score (64 follicles), S/P of 12.5 to 1, high gland presence (Level 3 of 4) and fineness (20.1 microns), Micron Variation of 13.2 microns. Strong points: density/S/P ratio, gland presence and fineness of secondary fibers.

This male has a very bright future as a herdsire for us. He had a 9 lb blanket with 20 months of growth. The staple length was almost 11". The shearer commented several times about the fineness of his fiber. And the density and luster was even more amazing.

His personality is very calm and pleasant, and always looks like he is smiling (Nickname is Smiley).

His head is just beautiful - pure Suri - just like his Sire (Cinders).

It is very unfortunate he was not shown in the ring due to previous owner's circumstances. However, we will be entering his fleece into various fleece shows and will post results.
