This guy was the first cria expected by our fine fleeced, Reserve Champion, Potter's Clay. To top that, he ended up being born on my mom's birthday! While my dad was hoping we would name after him, we decided naming from one of his favorite music groups. Hence, our "little deuce coupe" aka Couper.

His sire, Potter's Clay, has awesome EPD stats & amazing fineness, still holding under 20 micron at 4 years old. The fleece evaluator for the Suri Herd Improvement Program exclaimed when she touched Potter, "I could keep my hands in this fleece all day" - he received a maximum score on handle with a note "Holy handle!"

We suspect couper's fleece is on his way to developing similar attributes. Couper not only has an adorable smile, fleece with nice luster and that lock structure I love so well, but also a gorgeous head!

Hayven, Couper's dam, was a certainly a worthy pairing. She is a beautiful robust-framed, champion with great judges comments regarding both her fleece and conformation, comments of wow so nice, if she were only a male! Truly a large, robust frame but conformationally sound. Her fleece stats at 2 years of age we micron 21 AFD & 5 SD.

Couper took 2nd places in 2017 both in halter and in walking fleece with judges comments on his extremely fine fleece with nice luster (score of 17/20 in fineness/handle and 7.5/10 in lock structure) Unfortunately tender fleece was noted. He took a 3rd at Gold Country to older ones in his class. He has fine secondary fibers coming in. He is one of those guys where my gut tells me, give him time to grow.

I'm not bragging babe so don't put me down... He's my little deuce coupe - you don't know what I got...

Let us know if you are interested in him - predominately males were born to us the last few seasons besides we have a lot of similar genetics and we breed primarily for grey.

See if Couper is a good fit for you.
