Description
Capital Dauphin is an exciting young Rose Grey male who we are really excited about. He is a part of our first crop of cria from Beck Brow Hit For Six. Dauphin's dam, Houghton Beau is our best producing grey female, who consistently gives her cria very fine, dense, and stylish fleeces. Dauphin has had a highly successful show career so far and is continuing to mature in impeccable style. With his impressive pedigree and fabulous fleece traits, Dauphin has a wealth of strong genetics to pass on to his offspring.

Dauphin's fleece is bright, very dense, very fine, and impressively uniform. Judges have remarked on how similar in micron his white and coloured fibres are. His transition line is very low and his fleece stays fine and stylish into his extremities. Though he has not yet been colour tested, his sire has been tested as EE/aa and his dam is Ee/aa (Grey). So, Dauphin's base colour is either EE/aa or Ee/aa and he has clearly inherited the grey gene from his dam.

Conformationally, Dauphin is very much like his father. While he does not have a large frame, he is well-balanced and well-proportioned. He has good capacity through his chest, and good substance of bone. He has an attractive head that is true to type and has very good fleece coverage. Dauphin was a chunky and healthy cria. We expect his offspring will be the same! Though he is not yet two years old, he is showing signs of being an early worker (like his sire).

Please note that he was sheared less than a month old. The staple length and fleece weight is annualised.
