Description

Remus is one of those very rare browns with an exceptionally fine and crimpy fleece with a well nourished handle. He has a good solid frame (slightly overweight!). His father is the famous Talisman of Bozedown (winner of the 2010 Futurity Champion Herd Sire and numerous other awards). His mother is Snowshill Natasha, first placed Junior Brown Female at the 2007 Kenilworth Show(3rd fleece of 18.2microns). His first cria were a solid blue black boy, a solid black girl, a solid light brown girl and a solid mid brown girl. All have extremely fine fleece with good crimp. Four of his six 2012 offspring have been shown and all have been placed and two have won Championships. His 2013 cria have also done very well in the show ring winning a number of colour championships and Snowsill Romulus II two Supreme Campionships and Snowsill Hamlet produced the Champion fawn fleece at the 2014 Heart of England fleece show - both of these boys have stunningly fine, bright and dense fleeces. Other Campionship winning offspring include Snowshill Degas, Luther, Charlotte and Ieda. His 2015 cria are possibly even better.
