Amanda VandenBosch said this about his Blue Ribbon Fleece at the 2009 AFCNA Continental Fleece Show for med and dark silver Grey Juveniles “This fleece…Is excelling in the degree of fineness and the overall handle of the fleece… it has consistency across the fleece…. I am impressed with the overall evenness of micron and that in turn equates to softness of hand.”
His Dam, Kailee from Crescent Moon is one of our foundation females. He carries his Sire’s typey head – who is quite the award winner too!
He settled his first girl at just under 2 1/2 years. He produced a Rose Grey (Modern) female cria Oct 2011 we named Sassy. Sassy exhibits fine, crimpy, bright fleece, has his typy head, and a good bite. Sassy has won two blue ribbons!! Check her out.
In 2014 Sterling Knight gave us Crimson Knight – a gorgeous, Modern Rose Grey Male who in his own right is in Top 1% EPD’s in 3 categories for 2016.
In 2015 He gave us another Modern Rose Grey male – Samson Knight.
