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 9th fleece is still impressively soft, confirming his potential in providing enduring fineness in his off-spring.
He has a wonderfully calm temperament and is easy to handle, traits that show in his offspring.
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 surprise that his crias have ranged from solid blacks, browns, light fawns and whites through to the different grey varieties. His 2018 progeny born at Te Korito stud were a solid black male and a medium brown female whilst this year he sired a dark brown girl and two light fawn males. Several of his previous crias have been very successful in the show ring.
