** Once several thousands, we have to make room so we have had to group Daddy in with our fiber male sale to make room in our boy's pens. So, you can have a proven herdsire at rock bottom fiber prices....

** Thanks for those who have been interested in Daddy and have inquired. Yes, this price is 'for real' because we want him to go to a good home for the rest of his life and we need the space! His AOA (ARI) certificate can be transferred at the buyer's cost as a breeding male if desired, but at this price no breeding warranties will be extended. He did breed for us successfully, but his last cria was a few years ago (see details below).

Daddy has been a good male for our farm, one of our first to win us ribbons. When he walked into the ring, the judges watched him and for us the acknowledgement of our program was heady.

He took his first blue ribbon at less than 1 year old for his awesome fleece, beautiful stance, and macho attitude. You could tell the judge noticed him right away. His next well deserved 1st place was in a large class of stellar competitors at GWAS by Amanda Van Bosch. She loved his look -- his fleece, conformation and attitude -- and said so to the audience. He just missed reserve champion, again as a juvenile!

When Daddy produced two black crias when bred to white dams, we knew that we hit on Daddy's special gift -- pushing color through. Both had great crimp too, which also showed that Daddy could be used as a 'niche male' in a breeding program, one that you bring to a pairing for a specific trait. When you have that straight, light colored dam that you need to bring color, crimp, and density to, you add Daddy to the mix. He has a stronger micron now but we have found no issue when he is bred to a fine dam, as his crias showed a finer fiber coat with good handle from a low ratio between primary and secondary fibers. He hasn't produced another cria our farm yet to no fault of his own. We have too many studs now and several are not getting much use.

QP's "Who's Your Daddy" is the fortuitous product of Yupanqui grandson Antonio Vavaldi and our late Felix grand-daughter QP's Lola Falana. These exceptional and increasingly rare bloodlines. We are at a point in our herd that we need to reduce numbers to keep growing, so Daddy is on our sales list.

Congratulations to Tammy and Steven Smith on their purchase of Daddy!

2007 5th: GWAS halter; Jude Anderson said 3rd, 4th, & 5th place were really "the same" ...wanted to see more depth to his chest w/growth but also said "wow, his density," which confirmed his robust fiber. He was in his gangly 'teenager' phase and has since grown into a solid boxy frame of a mature macho male.
