How could one be smitten since 2 weeks of age? Especially when you are a grey fleece fan and this color doesn't typically excite you. He is that beautiful! We encouraged others to get their eyes and hands on him and in doing so, it landed his sire more dates. You nearly drool over this guy when the breeze catches his fleece. This guy's dam, Kisu, name means "kiss" in Japanese so we thought we would come up with a name with kiss. Hence, Kiss of the King (though I could just about kiss myself for making this breeding decision) When we were going through our breeding options we decided to forgo a nice full Accoyo breeding & try for a linebreed on Kahuna with the beautiful sire, OTN Peruvian Yukon. "Pucara Kahuna" for those that aren't aware, was herdsire of the year numerous years. His dam, Kisu is a Kahuna daughter and his sire Yukon is a Kahuna grandson. We have seen first-hand the genetic jump that can be given to offspring of a linebreed. We anticipate his genetics will deliver favorable results down the line. Meanwhile we are ecstatic how genetics paired up in him.

Early on, at a judging event, Dale Davis remarked he was a little small in size at a few months of age. If I had a photo of Dale's expression when she got her hands on his fleece - a big, wow! His fleece score card got excellent marks across the board with an emphasis on lovely luster and an added note to "Show" with exclamation mark(s)!!

At the Nationals we were actually happy to get a 6th place while other beauties from long time breeders left the ring without a ribbon. He was on the small side and the judges comments were only that he needed more time to grow. The following show against some of the same competition, King took a first place AND Championship in walking fleece and Color Champion in halter! Both judges said "well done" after examining him. I literally jumped up with excitement when he got Champion because I saw his competitors. His fleece regrowth after shearing does not disappoint. We participated in the Suri Herd Improvement Program and the evaluator affirmed his show record, perfect scores in conformation, maximum or top scores in most all fleece categories and she commented that his luster looked just a notch above some other real dazzlers. His 2018 histogram shows 19.7 micron with a 4 SD - way to go guy!

We are about to test out that expert advice regaring line breed giving a "genetic jump" and try breeding King this summer. We would consider sharing this guy as we have very limited light colors in our herd to use him for. Let us know if you are possibly interested.
