Our champion male was a great addition to our farm when he arrived as yearling. In his first big show, the judge, Shannon McConnell, was impressed with Patriot's "total package" and awarded him 1st in the yearling class and as the overall white Color Champion -- reporting that Patriot had the "impact you look for in a herdsire."

Patriot's regal and authoritative nature displayed as quiet confidence in the show ring and later translated to assertive attentiveness as a breeding herdsire. But beyond his calm and confident personality, his fiber qualities are also impressive. His brilliant fleece was extremely dense, soft & crimpy that held well into his maturity.

His boxy frame and straight conformation amplifies his regal countenance. This is not surprising considering his 'noble' bloodlines. In Magical Farms Herdsire Catalog book, they had professed their glowing praise of Patriot's Grandsire, PPPeruvian Dracula, who was known for his genetics for very dense fiber. Magical Farm's praise was not just manifested in Patriot but also his ciras. Best yet, these bloodlines are not overused so you breeding conflicts are not common.

In compliment of his fantastic paternal Accoyo (white) genetics, Patriot has an infusion of color bloodlines from his dam's lineage. When bred to a brown females, Patriot has produced three dark crias: a medium brown girl (who has had a 14 micron cria), our bay black female AutumnSun's Patriot Promise (who has had one of our best crias in 2014), and a bay black male. Even his white cria, AutumnSun's Sweet Patriotic Song (from a white dam), has his pleasing fiber and upright frame. Song has been one of our best foundation dams producing show worthy and colored crias (to include a bay black).
