First Mate is a handsome male with a well-defined fleece structure that is uniform throughout. He sports a solid blanket that is extremely bright and fine with a high frequency crimp style. At his first show (March 2019), he took Color Champion in both Halter (of 17) and Walking Fleece (of 33)!

First Mate is the son of multi-banner winning sire, FTAF's Privateer, who's fiber stats are AFD 20.9, SD 3.9, CV 18.5, %>30=2% at age 6. Privateer's fleece is that "elite" fleece with bundles everywhere and secondary bundles coming out of each bundle, even down to his knee and under his belly and on his chest. This breeding male is aging gracefully and retaining his fineness and uniformity and passing along these characteristics to his offspring such as First Mate! AND the majority of the time, he throws the color of the dam!!! It should also be noted that grandsire, true black SHVN The Buccaneer, took his 13th banner at 7 years old!

Sire's skin biopsy results from 2017 (at 5yrs old by Dr. Norm Evans):
Density of 71 follicles/sqmm. SP ratio is 12.1 to 1 with level 4 of 4 gland presence which correlates with what senior judges are referring to as “well-nourished fleeces”. Secondary fibers average 21.9 microns and primary fibers averaging 30.1 giving him a variation of only 8.2 microns.

And dam, Trixiebelle, is no slouch! She has an awesome pedigree including grandsire-- the legendary SA Peruvian Black Epic, 7X banner winner and sire of offspring with over 150 champion wins.

First Mate's manner is mild, just like his sire's. Always a pleasure! He stands tall and proud with thick tree trunk legs. He has settled his first females and is ready to make and outstanding contribution to your breeding program.
