We were anxiously awaiting our last birth of the 2017 season and despite having 6 beautiful boys born already, upon this guys delivery we were not disappointed in having "another" boy. We feel we got a show stopper.

This may have been the only grey that SoCal Greystone's Marko had and we think he did extremely well. Marko is black but his sire was Prince Greystone and this little guy's dam, Satin, who looks black, is really dark silver grey. She was sired by Platinum Marquis a silver grey, but she is out of a fawn dam. When breeding for grey one never knows what color may come up. We knew this guys dam has lovely luster and we loved the feeling of her yarn. Marko has nice fineness, lock structure and uniformity and both parents have nice conformation - not tall or long.

While Steele is still young, he is exhibiting luster & lock with a nice handle. At his first shows, he took a 2nd in Dixon while only making the cut off age to show by 2 days and he took a 3rd at GWAS as the youngest in his class. In walking fleece he took another 3rd place with above average density, uniformity & luster noted. After shearing much more medium silver grey AND luster is apparent. Though I already thought he was nice, I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of luster. Check out his picture shorn, which is better in person, just gorgeous!
We think Steele may grow to have the whole package, conformation that is sturdy, square in the box from day one and his color and shine! We are watching those secondary fibers coming in to see how they develop.

His name, "Steele the Show" a nod to a Toby Mac song, if you want to steal the show - can't wait to sit back and watch you go - go on and take it away...

Contact us if you are interested in him - we may share or sell him out right. Steele has very similar genetics to our SoCal Greystone's Marquis that we are thrilled with.
