Bidding Info


Connor was born on Father's Day- he's out of Condorlezze (TB) and Snowmass Matrix. His coloring is unusual- looked to be fawn till he dried off and they grey came thru on his head and lower legs.
He's retained his grey looks thus far, his full sister, Glamour Girl has joined our herd, too, but doesn't have his grey.

Connor has now developed into a lovely, square boy with good bone, density and character of fleece.
He's shown & ribboned in competitive medium fawn classes. His amazing staple length and brightness, he'll be a good match if you're looking for a guy that'll produce color.

Connor's EPD results are in- see photo- we're delighted with top marks for % Medullated Fiber and Median Staple Length!

Connor will begin his breeding career in Spring 2021- if you're looking for color, staple length and good temperament, please consider him.
