When you fall in love with a certain breeding program appreciating their achievement in brightness (in grey color) you can hardly resist the temptation to add to your herd. We had recently sold quite a few of our males and had a little bit of seller's remorse, when we saw a post regarding some of Granite Bay beauties being available. Before other life circumstances could delay, we acquired him, sight-unseen. Well, we did have fleece shots and knew the reputation of care and lineage so we weren't worried one bit about what would be on the end of the lead when we received him. We couldn't wait to meet him at the show. One of our favorite esteemed judges was the fleece judge and she took a sample around to point out the crimp in his guard hair for others surrounding to witness the softness of hand. Blue's score card was icing on the cake. He received a 2nd of 11 in his class going up against some real contenders including some of his own prior herd-mates.

He has grown up real quick - in fact we suspect that may have been why he didn't rank so well in the halter show the following spring. Now he has grown considerably well and looks nice and balanced and proportioned. We plan to re-check out how his fleece is doing and give next show season a go. Either way we can't wait to start infusing his qualities into our herd for the generations to come. He just settled his first female before the age of 2 years old. We are hoping to see if we can get a confirmed pregnancy soon. Meanwhile we hope he is as happy here with us as we are to have him. Go Blue !
