McCheyne (pronounced McShane) is a handsome little lad with a great heritage.
2017 histogram: 16.4 AFD, 3.8 SD, 23.0 CV, 99.3 CF!
Also notice his histogram results for 2015 and his 2016 EPD results.
This guy is much more valuable than his auction price, but we don't have room in the barn for him this winter!

His dam is Rhiannon, who has quite the genetic lineup: Caligula, Don Julio, Rosario, Bueno, Cloud 9 Comet.
His sire, Dirk, also has an impressive background: Hemingway, Hemingway-Accoyo Nautilus, Guellermo, Michelangelo, Onyx de Mico, Caligua, Accoyo America Diomedes!

McCheyne, as you can see in the second picture with my husband, is quite small! He gained weight as a cria until he reached 40 lbs., then was stuck there for quite awhile. We had him checked for parasites, which revealed nothing. Quite a bit later, we got him checked again to find that he had the elusive Emac. Once treated for that, he continued to gain weight, but he is small. The vet said that Emac definitely could have stunted his growth. We will again get a vet check before sending him off to your farm.

He has beautiful fleece and recently become VERY interested in breeding, and has gotten several girls to go down for him. Buy him at auction and we will have him tested at WSU to make sure he's shooting bullets; if he's not, you are under no obligation and will be released from the sale. He should actually make cria that are normal sized.

We have not mixed him in with our other herdsires because of his small size. When we do, they gang up on him. If you bring him to your farm and you have other males, consider that you may have to keep him in a separate pen for his wellbeing. That is why we are selling him at such a low price: we have no room to bring him up to the barn this winter!

We realize everyone's situation is different and we are willing to draw up terms agreeable to both parties. Don't hesitate to ask for a plan that works for you.
