Bidding Info


Special young man born with popcorn style fleece and great color. Prior to shearing he looked very much dark brown (darker than dark brown on the color chart) with black trim. Now that he is sheared and you can really see it all (April 19, 2016), he's even more gorgeous with that light black body and super dark brown tipping!! Has all the potential that we are looking for in a young male - tight, crimpy fleece, straight back, strong bones and growing like a weed - already 40+ pounds!

His sire helps explain a lot of the superlatives - Autumn Sun's Dark Secret (pictures) is a multi-time champion due to his excellent conformation and awesome fleece characteristics - fine, dense, shiny. As a breeding male he has put 75% black and grey on the ground which is great success and what you want from a herdsire of color. His dam was never shown though when we entered her fleece in a spin off as a proven 7 year old, of course she came in first with no/little competition, though the impressive part was the judges scored her in the high 80's and she was only a couple of points off the dark color champion who was a yearling male!!

He will join Angel in our show string in the fall of 2016 and we are always excited to listen to the judges and to gain other perspectives. So far, the visitors we've had here instantly fall in love with his coloring and we hope that is just the beginning!
