Minffordd Dean

IAR Number: 1003793
Colour: Rose Grey/Roan
DOB: 12/03/2011
Sire: NZ Southern Black Adder (S) BLK
Dam: Minffordd Twighlight (DF)

Dean was first shown at competition in 2012 where he won the junior male Huacaya (6 to 12 months) section. His fleece also won the grey section (6 to 12 months) at the Manawatu show. In 2014 he won Champion grey fleece at the Levin show with an impressive score of 71.5. Even now, his fleece is still very soft, confirming his ability to provide fineness in his off-spring.
He has a wonderfully calm temperament and is easy to handle. It is notable that Dean has produced many more female than male crias.
Dean has some impressive genetics in his background including ILR Alpine Fiber’s Brutus, Peruvian Hemmingway and Purrumbete Brigantine.
Details of his ancestry can be viewed here. With Dean's background, it should be no suprise that his crias have ranged from solid blacks, browns and whites through to the different grey varieties. His 2018 progeny born at Te Korito stud have been a solid black and a medium brown cria, both female. Several of his previous crias have been very successful in the show ring.

Gilead Alpha Romeo

Gilead Alpha Romeo

IAR Number: 1001008
Colour: Solid Light Fawn
DOB: 18/1/2010
Sire: Silverstream Faberge (S) W
Dam: Gilead Evita (MF)
Maternal Grandsire: Cambridge Storm Trooper
Maternal Great Grandsire: Jolimont Conquistador

Romy (as he’s known) exudes quality – you only need to look at the famous names in his ancestry. Faberge is now in Europe improving their herd quality and the renowned Brutus has sired more Supreme Champions than almost any NZ male to date. Storm Trooper was still being shown well into his teens and always won his mature classes. Romy was shown as a senior male in 2015 and was Reserve Champion Senior White Male at the Manawatu Show.
Romy has a lovely temperament, he’s easy to handle and enthusiastic, though suitably gentle with females. He almost always achieves prenancy with the first mating.
At 8 years old, Romy is now in his prime and the show success of his recent progeny can be seen.
In 2017, two of his offspring won significant ribbons at the Masterton Show:-

Monarca Midnight Oatis won Supreme Fleece, and

Bonnack Grove Phantom won Supreme Huacaya.

These traits – fleece, temperament, conformation etc are what you need in your herd and Romy can provide. He can produce white crias plus light/medium fawns and browns without difficulty – a versatile, willing and co-operative stud male.
