Comet is a 7 time banner winner and is the result of combining some great genetics. His sire is Black Beau of PVA. Comet is from the Mahogany Prince to Kobe to Diamonte to Black Beau line of champion PVA genetics. Black Beau inherited great fleece statistics. Black Beau had EPDs that improved AFD, SDAFD, SF, %>30, MSL, and FW. It was expected that he'd improve every measurable aspect of a fleece in his progeny. Black Beau also had the most beautiful Suri conformation to pass on to his offspring.

Comet's dam was sired by Saladin, a bay black that produced champion offspring including the true black male Psylent Knight. His dam's dam comes from a line of outstanding fine micron fleeces tracing back to imported males Sedoso and Huacho. Before we got her in the EPD pool, Comet's dam Hermione died and he was her only offspring. Hermione's dam Lianka is in the top 2% of EPDs for AFD and at age 9 had an AFD of 25.1 microns. Lianka is maintaining a fineness as she ages. Lianka's dam was tested at age 1 and had a 17.4 micron AFD and her grandmother at age 4 years had a 15.2 micron AFD. Comet has great fleece genetics both in the top and bottom of his pedigree.

Comet has been part of the AOA's EPDs since 2017 and the current results can be seen using the EPD link. He's almost top 1% for staple length at 1.08%. Overall, the EPD rankings are excellent like we expected and it is expected that he will improve every trait in his offspring just like his sire Black Beau. The histogram for the EPD testing shows at age 2.5 years Comet has matured into a dark dawn male with uniform grade 3 fleece. Besides the histograms, Comet has a skin biopsy indicating he has great fleece genetics to pass on to offspring. Besides data, the lock structure of Comet's fleece is outstanding. He maintained a great lock structure in full fleece well past age 2 years. Those locks will be passed on to his progeny. The locks pictured are at 18 months of age. In that picture one can also see the luster is good.

Comet has the fleece genetics, but really he is the whole package. He will also stamp on his crias exemplary Suri conformation. He has the exceptional Suri head from his sire Black Beau and great fleece coverage. He's a solidly built male of good stature. So as a herdsire, Comet should improve your herd in many areas from fineness of fleece to lock structure to conformation to the good sized solid build. His first cria was born in September of 2018 and he looks awesome!
