Special Breeding Fee until October 8 to celebrate his new offspring! We’ve bred Prometheus to two of our better females, Keltie and Raina, for Fall 2021 crias. We expect Prometheus will bring fineness, uniformity, staple length, and high frequency crimp to the table. We can't wait to see how these two turn out! That being said, we are offering Prometheus for an extremely reasonable price -- Interested? Give us a call!

Prometheus is an eye-catching light fawn out of Sunset Hills Zagato & WP Elite Delilah, that is maintaining a beautiful fleece - with excellent staple length! He comes from the best of the best! with Majestic Peruvian Jeremiah, Peruvian Zephyrus, The Elite Maximus, Peruvian Accoyo Elite, Evander, Jericho, Mr President, Hemingway, Inca's Ransom, and Dakotia in his pedigree!

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. He has also won numerous First Place Get of Sire ribbons--at least one for which Prometheus was included. 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!!

If sold, we would like to retain two breedings.
