We jumped at the opportunity to breed to Leader's sire who was the son of a multiple champion / Judge's Choice herdsire. When Leader was born, the first thing we saw was that he was white, darn. But, wait -- white is an excellent color for any fiber producer and handspinner! From birth, he stood with an impressive confident and macho attitude but was gentle and easy to handle. With those tree trunk legs, dollface looks, and upright stature we just knew this boy was going to make a name for himself.

Unfortunately, the disadvantage he suffered was a lack of uniformity of crimp to his fiber, so that as a show farm we could not take him to the shows or move him forward in our breeding program. His fiber has good staple, healthy shine, good handle & fineness.
