Description

Kanaka is the most renowned of all of Avatar's offspring. In his amazing show career, Kanaka amassed 6 Color Championships, 2 Reserve Color Champs, and a dozen blue ribbons in both halter and fleece. If that wasn't enough, Kanaka has an awesome EPD ranking too. He is ranked top 1% in BOTH SD and %>30. His AFD and SF ranks are in the top 2%.

With about 50 kids on the ground - when bred to silver or true black, he seems to want to throw grey about 1/2 the time. However, most of his girl friends have been light in color. Not that color matters with his quality - but since his dad is rose grey - some breeders may choose to point him in that direction.

Kanaka has the very best of Avatar - and Legacy - two of the best herd sires in the U.S. - concentrated in one amazing male. His breeding career has unfortunately been a bit limited, due to sometimes finding himself at farms that have been divorcing, downsizing or liquidating. That said - he does have some excellent kids on the ground, including EON Hadassah, who racked up the following awards in her amazing career:

4 Championships, 8 blues, 3 seconds, 1 third, 3 fourths and a fifth.

Kanaka also sired the grey mother of Autumnsun's Dauntless - one of the best greys currently showing in Colorado and a champion in her own right.

Give him half a chance and he'll knock it out of the park.

We are offering 10 introductory breedings at $500. 7 remaining.

UPDATE: Kanaka settled his first female about 3 hours after arriving. Pre-potency has certainly not been lost whilst not breeding. He now has a handful of girls spitting off. We've bred him to white, fawn, black and grey.

Kanaka's crias have arrived in white, fawn, light rose, and dark rose grey. His fleece continues to amaze as well. His 13th fleece is 20.7 micron with a 4.4 SD and 44.3 Curve and only 3.2% > 30. Wow!
