Bidding Info


McCheyne (pronounced McShane) is a handsome little lad with a great heritage.

NOTICE all those nice histograms for a guy with this color and age!
His 2018 EPD results:
AFD value —0.864, his cria will likely have a finer fleece
TOP 18% for SDAFD, value — 0.31: his cria will likely have a more uniform fiber diameter
TOP 25% for SF, value —0.918: his cria will likely have a lower spin fineness
%F>30, value —3.099, his cria will likely have a lower % of fibers greater than 30 micron
MC, value 1.78, his cria will likely have a higher frequency crimp than average
SDMC, value 0.674, assesses the uniformity of curvature
TOP 19% for %M, value —2.18: his cria will likely have less % fiber medullation
MSL, value —4.007, his cria will likely have a shorter staple length
FW, value —0.013, his cria will likely have a bit less heavy fleece weight
BW, value —0.051, his cria will likely be a bit less for birth weight

His dam is Rhiannon, who has quite the genetic lineup: Caligula, Don Julio, Rosario, Bueno, Cloud 9 Comet (MSG).
His sire, Dirk, also has an impressive background: Hemingway, Hemingway-Accoyo Nautilus, Guellermo, Michelangelo, Onyx de Mico, Caligua, Accoyo America Diomedes!

McCheyne, as you can see in the second picture with my husband, is quite small! He gained weight as a cria until he reached 40 lbs., then was stuck there for quite awhile. We had him checked for parasites, which revealed nothing. Quite a bit later, we got him checked again to find that he had the elusive Emac. Once treated for that, he continued to gain weight, but he is small. The vet said that Emac definitely could have stunted his growth. He is in great body condition at this time, so I don't think he has a parasite issue, but we will definitely check with the vets before sending him off to anyone's farm.

He has beautiful fleece and recently has become VERY interested in breeding, and has gotten several girls to go down for him. If you buy him, we will have him tested at WSU to make sure he's shooting bullets; if he's not, you are under no obligation and will be released from the sale. My guess is that he will probably make cria that are normal sized.
