Diomedes' DIRK of Stirling Ridge

Huacaya Male White

AOA# 31414913 Deceased
We must say, with much sadness, Dirk is no longer with us. He had a urinary blockage and had to be put down on May 6, 2019 . The vets at WSU tried valiantly to save him, but it was obvious to all that he was going downhill. The Lord gives and the Lord takes away; blessed be the name of the Lord! Job 1:21 He was a phenomenal male. ______________________________________________________________ Look at his 2018 histogram. He's TEN years old. Do you think that might mean lingering fineness?

Rubio's RHIANNON of Stirling Ridge

Huacaya Bred (Female) White

AOA# 31949408 DOB: 6/1/200914 yrs
Here's one pretty, easy keeping little lady with a fleece that's SO USEABLE! She is bred to our amazing Bradford for this price, so you get two in this deal! You should expect to get a cria with a finer fleece. She has a medium rose gray sire, so I always wonder if we couldn't get a gray baby from her. Here's what her 2022 EPD shows she is likely to give her cria: Ranked 64% for AFD, value —.051, a bit lower AFD than breed average Ranked 49% for SDAFD, value —.085, a more un ...

Small, sturdy, handsome!

Ask a question
McCheyne (pronounced McShane) is a handsome little lad with a great heritage.
He produces a wonderfully versatile and useable fiber.
He is being sold here as a fiber boy with no breeding guarantees.
If you would like to buy him to use him in your breeding program and would like a breeding guarantee, please add $500 to his current price. Included in his purchase AS STUD, McCheyne will be given a breeding soundness and health exam at WSU. If he doesn't check out for some reason, your money will be refunded completely (less the cost of the breeding soundness exam).

His 2022 EPD results:
Ranked 31% for AFD value —0.89, his cria will likely have a finer fleece
Ranked 26% for SDAFD, value — 0.279: his cria will likely have a more uniform fiber diameter
Ranked 29% for SF, value —0.942: his cria will likely have a lower spin fineness
Ranked 32% for %F>30, value —3.867, his cria will likely have a lower % of fibers greater than 30 micron
Ranked 26.6% for MC, value 2.057, his cria will likely have a higher frequency crimp than average
SDMC, value 0.713, assesses the uniformity of curvature
Ranked 28% for %M, value —1.924: his cria will likely have less % fiber medullation
Ranked 95% for MSL, value —4.058, his cria will likely have a shorter staple length
Ranked 74% for FW, value —0.02, his cria will likely have a bit less heavy fleece weight
BW, value —0.07 his cria will likely be a bit less for birth weight

His dam is Rhiannon, who has quite the genetic lineup: Caligula, Don Julio, Rosario, Bueno, Cloud 9 Comet (MSG). 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. It wouldn't surprise me though if he produces average sized cria. We are trying him out on our Joeleigh.
