592 Peruvian Mr Bojangles
Medium Brown, 837934, Full Peruvian
Bojangles is an exceptional Peruvian herdsire. I had to search long & hard to find a male to replace MonteCristo, my previous Peruvian herdsire. I decided on Bo. He has exquisite fleece. It's so fine it "webs" when I try to separate it. His fleece is crimpy, crimpy, crimpy. I've had a hard time getting a photo good enough to do it justice.
Bo has fantastic conformation, heavy leg bone, great fleece coverage, a good bite and an ALL colored Peruvian lineage! His sire, The Saint, has thrown almost every color on the charts including a few rose greys AND color out of white dams! The Saint has also produced about 2/3 female cria! Bo's dam, CPeruvian Genny, has also only produced colored cria.
Beechcomber passed on his beautifully architectured crimp, consistency and density. His fiber has minimal guard hair and super soft handle even as a ten year old.. He has let the color and patterning of the dam come through. Crias have been: dk brown white face and socks via similar dam, a "mini me" (and I do mean PERFECT replica of himself in a female variety, but without the brown spot)via a solid white dam, a brown & white pinto out of a black dam w/ white markings, and a brown and white pattern out of similar dam. I think, unless intentionally breeding for patterns, I would keep his breedings to solid colored females. No matter what the color, though, the fiber he passed to the cria has been fabulous.
My Beech boy is out of the Caligula line via his dam (a grandaughter) and out of Peruvian The Saint via his sire. The Saint is a gorgeous maroon, owned by the Pet Center, standing stud in California. Beechcomber's sire, Bojangles, is a brown multi award winner as well.
He has a solid, muscular, large frame, a perfect bite, and his testicular development is very good. He is not a problem for herd health chores, although he does tend to be bossy with other males if girls are around. He is to be gelded this spring, so he can be sold as a companion.
