Unabashedly I fell in love with this guy on a casual stroll through the show grounds in Denver, CO. Not knowing pedigree, etc. when asked if I wanted a closer look, I thought why not, just looking. Then of course couldn't stop thinking about him. His fawn sire at almost 3 years of age 17.6 micron with 4.2 SD and extremely bright & crimpy. (I wanted to post pictures of both of their fleece shots but couldn't choose a picture to delete of Romeo himself! Then at a show in between we were presented with an amazing opportunity to pick up a guy that totally fits our breeding program. Despite being ecstatic about purchasing him, I still felt something tugging with Romeo. Keep in mind I've told others don't buy boys, you will have them. So much for listening to my own advice! When it "happened" to work out that we had an additional sale AND Romeo was coming from Montana to Denver where others from our ranch would be attending GWAS show, I pressed the "buy" button.

Just a few days later at that GWAS show, he received his 1st blue ribbon. The plan was to shear at the show, but I thought it wouldn't be fair to the hubby to not see him in his full glorious fleece. So he came home to wow us all and we sheared shortly afterward. We gave essentially his cria fleece to an extremely talented hand spinner who processed it with hardly any waste. It turned out beautiful!

Romeo's nice conformation was evident at early age. Multiple people, besides his breeder also commented on his truly sweet disposition. Even the judge at the last show commented what a well-behaved young man he is. Large fluffy frame and he is still a huggable sort. Most days I find him laying right in or next to his feed eating and relaxing will see if that holds out now that he is breeding.

From a black dam & fawn sire came his modern grey. His dam does have a dark silver grey and medium silver grey in Aussie Rockford so he should really compliment some of our grey females. He grew so fast hard to believe he is just now two years old. While we would be happy if he basically only passed his disposition on, we can't wait to see if his conformation, density, gorgeous head and ears will give us what we are hoping for.

Romeo settled his first female, we have ultrasound verification of a pregnancy due summer 2019.
Despite his size and his manly behavior beginning to be exhibited, Romeo is still adorable. Be still my beating heart...
