NOW BREEDING! Prometheus is a stunning male that is maintaining an absolutely gorgeous fleece! We've retained his full blankets for inspection. He comes from the best of the best! Prometheus is an eye-catching light fawn out of Sunset Hills Zagato & WP Elite Delilah, with Majestic Peruvian Jeremiah, Peruvian Zephyrus, The Elite Maximus, Peruvian Accoyo Elite, Evander, Jericho, Mr President, Hemingway, Inca's Ransom, and Dakotia behind that!

We're so confident in this young herdsire that we've decided to breed him to one of our top Champion-producing females this Fall. If you wait to see how this cria turns out, you will have missed his great introductory breeding fee.

Prometheus played a prominent role in our 2017/18 show string...At 6 months with his cria tips still on, he garnered First Place at 2017 MAPACA against peers from some of the top farms in the country!! He placed second in very good company at the 2017 Empire Extravaganza, coming in right behind the color champion in his class, a full brother to the 2015 AOA National Grand Champion. At the 2017 NEAOBA, he placed third behind the same champ and he traded places with the Cas Cad Nac boy he was in front of in the Empire Show -- and he then came back into First Place at 2017 VAOBA under Judge Jill MacLeod...and now 1st and Color Champ in 2018 CAC under Judge Amanda Vandenbosh. He's right up there with the very best!

Prometheus' herdsire, Sunset Hills Zagato, is highly decorated in the show ring, winning multiple championships and two Judge's Choice awards. His fleece is soft, dense and spectacular with high frequency, high amplitude crimp structure. His conformation, stellar! Royal Fawn and Zephyrus would be proud to have him carry on their legacy....and he's doing a wonderful job, as evidenced by Prometheus and his siblings that are on the ground so far -- all show worthy and winning top ribbons!

Prometheus' dam, WP Elite Delilah, also carries an amazing fleece along with lingering fineness - 18.5 AFD at 5 years old after having two crias! -- so it's no wonder that Prometheus has inherited the density, fineness, and bundles readily apparent in both of his parents. Delilah is out of another renowned herdsire, The Elite Maximus, who was a multiple Get of Sire champion and champion himself. At 13 years old (2014), The Elite Maximus held a histogram of less than 19 microns! And that fineness was incredibly uniform, with a comfort factor close to 100%. Wow!!

We've decided to offer half interest for sale; though we will consider selling full interest. If full interest is sold, we will reserve five breedings for ourselves. Prometheus and Ganymede are closely related on the sire's side (their fathers are half-brothers), so it limits how much we'll use him. We think he'll bring fineness, uniformity, staple length, and micro-crimp to the table.
Stud service includes 60 days board; $3/day thereafter.
