SOLD! Yasmina's EPD's put her in the top 15% or better in just about every category (see below). All of her crias have been sturdy with heavy bone, excellent conformation, and very nice fleece. Her offspring have had amazing staple length and a uniform crimp style.

Bidding Info

Description

It appears that Epimetheus will retain a perfect fleece for spinning. This gorgeous, sweet boy is half brother to Ganymede. We had all but written him off, but it looks like he just took a while to blossom. He may be turning out to be one of those boys that maintains his low micron for a lifetime -- he definitely has those genetics. (His 2018 micron = 20.5 AFD, 4.3 SD, 21.2 CV is finer than his prior 2017 micron = 21.1 AFD, 4.0 SD, 19.0 CV.) He may even be worth breeding! Either way, his fleece is perfect for the spinner and he is destined to make beautiful fiber. In addition, he has a lovely personality and he's very easy to handle.

Epimetheus' fleece is bright white, uniform, and extra soft to the touch (Spin Fineness 20.0). It also has a very long staple and a well-defined crimp. He stands out in the field---his conformation is amazing, he has great bone and full coverage down his legs---a lot of fleece from this boy. His fleece architecture carries throughout, well down into all his extremities and up into his neck and head. And did I already say that he has the perfect temperament?

Price does not include registration. Should Epimetheus prove to be worthy of breeding, he may be "upgraded" to full breeding status now, or later, for an additional $1000...so that you may register him and his offspring.

BTW, MMFA Supreme Epimetheus was named after a moon of Saturn, as well as a son of Titan in greek mythology.
