This picture is Gareth's 5th fleece. He has held the lock and luster of his youth and we have his first cria on the ground this year. They have wonderful luster and coverage and are tall and energetic. We look forward to watching them grow.
As Gareth has grown up, he has become more impressive. He has fine, well-defined locks and wonderful density and luster. He is an easily handled boy as well. The undesirable characteristic of "hairy" fleece is passed down through the male line. Gareth is a consistent non-hairy grade 3. This makes him more valuable as a herdsire. We are very excited to see what grade his progeny will carry.
