This guy was the first cria expected by our amazingly 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. I'm not bragging babe so don't put me down... He's my little deuce coupe - you don't know what I got...

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 that I love so well, but also a gorgeous head!

Hayven, Couper's dam, is a beautiful robust-framed, champion. Her fleece stats at 2 years of age we micron 21 AFD & 5 SD so we were hoping not too far of a micron gap that would bring nice uniformity to their offspring.

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 also has fine secondary fibers. With his grand dam being black, he may compliment color for breeding. He is one that despite the fact we have so many males, I am thinking worth holding on to. He is really starting to fully blossom. Look at that fleece coming off - slick, shiny - stunning. Let us know if interested, someone local maybe we could share him.
