Peruvian Olympus now has over 150 cria on the ground with 90% a primary color other than white. He has produced silver and rose grays from several white dams with tendencies to throw the color of the dam or darker adding the benefit of fineness and crimp to the darker colors. Olympus imparts the much desired "total coverage" appearance along with his calm disposition and excellent fiber characteristics. At 9 years of age, Olympus still carried a micron count of 23.4 with an SD of 4.9. Olympus crias have always done very well in the show ring as Olympus himself did.
Micron Count 2008: 27.6 5.9 21.4 25.4
FRA Peruvian Mohogony Knight (Misty Maiden Lines!)
Reluctantly, I am offering Mohogony Knight for sale. He has done his job here, and produced his replacement. I will use him for a few more breedings in the next couple of months, and then I would love to see him go somewhere that he can pass his great genetics along. This is a great opportunity for a smaller or newer farm that is breeding for color to get an exceptional male and a genetic jackpot at a discount price. Mohogony Knight is spectacular. Deep rich color and a proud stance with crimp running up to his ears! And virtually no guard hair. How rare is that in a male this dark?! If you are breeding for color how can you not consider this male? Great fleece, straight legs, typey look, presence, and the pedigree to back it all up.
I talked to a breeder who has one of his crias. She told me that the cria is a great improvement over the dam in density, fleece character, coverage, and staple length.
I have been looking for a great color herdsire. I also have been looking for the famous Misty Maiden bloodline (Dam of the Century, who sold for $205,000.) I found both in a proven herdsire and he is also the grandson of 5Peruvian Camelot (maroon!) and Drambuie! Full Peruvian breeding males this dark are extremely rare in Texas. Take advantage of an opportunity to add these outstanding bloodlines and color to your herd! He was commanding a $3000 stud fee in Colorado. Mohogony is a large, striking male who has never produced lighter than beige even when bred to white. His fleece is a deep, rich brown, with nice crimp, and a very soft hand that he is maintaining even as a breeding male. His crias have all had that 'look at me' attitude and amazing crimp. Some of the links below have pictures of his crias' crimp. Check them out. His pictures are impressive, but he is even more magnificent in person. Come by and take a look! He is very easy to handle, but does not play well with others, so you would need a small area to house him alone
