Potter's Clay

Suri, Male, Unproven, Medium Fawn
ARI# 32535211 | DOB: 9/1/2013
Potter's Clay - had our hearts from the day he hit the ground. We were newbies and on the fence regarding showing this guy. He was visibly smaller in stature due to some early issues/poor vet advice that also should have made his fleece tender. Yet, he seemed to rebound and was looking nice enough that we decided to enter a show. He received rave remarks at check-in from some industry experts. Then, in the ring he took a first place with comments from the judge that they were sorry there were...

Description

When your business "plan" doesn't include fawn or brown and yet this guy was our most anticipated birth. He was the first cria expected by our very dear to us Potter's Clay. To top that, he ended up being born on my mom's birthday! While my dad was hoping we would name after him (again) we decided naming from one of his favorite music groups. Hence, our "little deuce coupe" aka Couper.

Potter's Clay, his sire, has awesome fleece and EPD stats. Still holding fineness under 20 micron at 4 years old and as the fleece evaluator for the Suri Herd Improvement Program exclaimed when she touched him, saying I could keep my hands in this fleece all day "Holy handle"! We would honestly like to utilize him more often just to see if he will pass those traits but we already have a lot of MacGyver genetics, and we breed primarily for grey.

Hayven, Couper's dam, was a certainly a worthy pairing. She is a beautiful robust-framed, champion with great judges comments regarding both her fleece and conformation, comments of wow so nice, if she were only a male! Truly a large, robust frame but conformationally sound. Her fleece stats at 2 years of age we micron 21 AFD & 5 SD and Potter's Clay were 18 and 4.4. His EPD's (Expected Progeny Difference) are in the top 1% for fineness and top 5% for uniformity in the country! We are hoping this guy they gave us might just bring the best together.

Looking at Couper solidified our decision for a repeat breed. Couper not only has an adorable smile, fleece with nice luster, density present and that lock structure I love so well. We were thankful for another opportunity to lease this dam. (Admittedly we are hoping for a girl this year) Keep in mind we don't breed for fawn color but when they are this nice you make an exception to your breeding plan even though our record with female births from leases is 1 in 12. He is nice sized, with solid conformation. He took 2nd places both in halter and in walking fleece with judges comments on his extremely fine fleece with nice luster (score of 17/20 in fineness/handle and 7.5/10 in lock structure)Unfortunately tender fleece was noted - yet also extremely fine secondary fibers coming in also! He is one of those my gut tells me he may come back possibly even better than anticipated. We sheared him and plan to give him a go at shows this fall and following spring. We will see what the judge says soon enough. I'm not bragging babe so don't put me down... He's my little deuce coupe - you don't know what I got...

Let us know if you are interested in him - 7 boys this season, 6 last and 4boys of 4 so far this year.
