Description

Arnon is out of one of our best foundation females, Muffit.  Most of her offspring are a Champion at least once and some have championed more than once.  Arnon has perfect conformation, a strong frame, and a great presence. His fleece is very, very fine.  His juvenile fleece sheared one of our top weights and he carries a low CV and SD.  In 2015 he sheared 8 LBS BLANKET AND 3.4 LBS NECK! We believe his fleece will be there in the years to come.  Arnon is a fantastic male to add in a serious breeding program. Hand spinners recognize his incredible handle.

Arnon has his first cria on the ground (2015) As anticipated, his offspring are very fine, dense, and have a long staple length. Plus they have a beautiful phenotype. Plus he has thrown dark brown or bay black, which was not expected! I believe we will see very, very nice second fleeces.
