26x champ, incl. '16, '17, '18 AOA Nat'l AOA Color Champion in 2016 fleece and in 2017 Halter and Fleece! He has more wins that can be counted, but check his show results below to see his consistency! We had been looking for quite a while for that one special black male to add to our herd in complement to our Dark Secret / Black Maestrom line.

Details
If you are looking for something really SPECIAL - take a look at this dam! Special K is a daughter of Fossil Ridge Rumaki (PPeruvian Royal Fawn son) many awards to his name and Fossil Ridge's Bit-O-Honey who is a Peruvian Presidio grand daughter. The pairing of these two criated a beautiful little girl that has some of the nicest fleece. When we saw her as juvie, we knew she had great potential.

In her first spin off competition with her cria fleece -- she received 4th because it was SO DENSE, long, and crimpy that it was difficult to pull apart to prep for spinning! The judge then went on to say it was BEAUTIFUL fiber and would make lots of wonderful yarn! Hmmm, love the compliments -- even if the placement didn't reflect them! In her second spin-off with her cria fleece the comment was "gorgeous!" Since then, as you can see from her record, Special K has shown the judges that she has the fiber that is a joy to see and feel. Still showing as a 2 year old, K is garnering PURPLE ribbons, showing that she has 'staying' power into her maturity.

K was bred to Dark Secret to produce a true black male with buttery soft fiber! This male, Black Maelstrom, went on to win 13 champion banners.

We then bred her to 19x true black Jacob Black to produce multiple champion DRG male Truthsayer.

In 2018 K produced a light fawn full brother to our Maelstrom, Sirocco. He is a fawn but also has wonderful fiber, so we are currently keeping him though we should with all his brothers on our herdsire row!

We have bred K to our other multiple black champion male, Stradivarius, for hopes of another great addition (girl this time?) to our black program in 2021.
