Description
Shadow is an impressive blue black stud male with multiple championships to his name including the inaugural Alpaca Showtime Black Male Champion which he won just a couple of weeks after taking Reserve Black Male Champion at the 2014 National. Shadow's fleece carries all the traits of a truly special male, incredible density, a lovely buttery soft and weighty handle with enduring fineness. His fleece stats for 2017 (5th fleece) are very impressive, still only 23.9 micron with an SD of 4.9.

Shadow began stud work in 2015 he did many services with a brilliant conception rate over some elite females. Three of his black progeny of 2016 were entered into BAS registered shows in 2017. They won five 1st places between them, a very impressive start for this unique black male.

He displays enviable substance of bone and a solid, true to type frame. He has a powerful yet attractive head, typical of his sire ATA Cambridge Centurion.

Shadow's bright black fleece has great density and a beautiful soft handle. Of an advanced type it is highly aligned and uniform in crimp and micron.

Whilst his dam Nero Black Galaxy was Futurity Brown Champion in 2011 there is also a depth of black genetics behind Shadow. His sire, mentioned above, needs no further introduction. His Grandmother Cambridge Scarborough has produced 3 show black champions and in her own right still carries a beautiful fine black fleece.

In summary Nero Black Shadow is an outstanding male who will bring quality and progression to the herd of any black breeder.
