Introducing our new herdsire! Grey Fox....the beautiful grey son of Snowmass Sterling Legend (imported to Germany). First time out 2 firsts and a reserve color champion at 2013 IAO Cottage Division. (reserved to our US Steel) 2013 Futurity and 2013 Nationals Fleece show 2nd place with a 19.5/20 for fineness and handle. 2014 IAO 1st and Color Champion Commercial Fleece. 2014 IAO 1st and Color Champion Cottage Division. 2015 GWAS Fleece Show: 1st and Reserve Color Champion.

This young male has a stunningly bright and dense silver grey fleece. He really does not like to show, but his fleece apparently likes to show and has done very well for us, as evidenced by his wins. His first cria are stunning and they are replicating Grey Fox's dense fleece with no spotting or very minimal spotting in the grey blankets.

His 2016 at 4yrs 3 months Biopsy by Dr. Norm Evans shows a density of 59 follicles/sqmm. SP ratio is 11.5 to 1 with level 3 of 4 gland presence. 20% of secondary fibers show medullation and his 2ndary fibers average 22.3 microns and primary fibers averaging 29.7 giving him a variation of 7.4 microns.
