I love this guy! Tierra's Shiftin Gear's Trinidad is a unique combination of genetics. His pedigree reads like a Who's Who list. The son of Crescent Moon's Shiftin Gears and Xanadu P Travesura, he has Accoyo Elite, Vengador, Geronimo, Presidio, Caligula, and Bueno for an exquisite combination of Accoyo and Alianza genetics.
He has excellent conformation and bite with excellent fiber coverage and bone density. His fleece though is what is really special. He has excellent density and fineness (his yearling fleece was 17 microns) with wonderful narrow bundles and a high frequency and low amplitude crimp style. His fleece is a brilliant white with a wonderful, luxurious handle.
Unfortunately, when he was a yearling, he broke his ankle and was unable to go to very many shows.
He has done well at the shows he has been to including a Color Championship at the 2010 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. He has settled his first female and is ready to be a headliner in our breeding program.
His EPD's are available for public viewing and they are very favorable for both increasing fineness and density.
