This handsome young male is the full sibling to Rare Gem Privateer's First Mate. Brother, First Mate, was sold in the 2020 Amber Autumn Auction. Like brother, Hooked on a Feelin' is a handsome male with fleece that is looking well-defined and uniform throughout. He sports a solid blanket that is extremely bright and fine with a high frequency crimp style.

Hooked on a Feelin' 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 Hooked on a Feelin'! 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.

Hooked on a Feelin's manner is mild, just like his sire's. Always a pleasure!

He can be purchased now, but cannot depart to a new home until he is completely weaned ~ May 2022.
