If you like your roans and greys very fine, Kauri is the male for you.

Looking through his genetics is like the Royal who's who. There is Highlander from his dam Celmisia's side. His sire OTB Karaka is by Pejo Harvest Moon a multiple Grey Champion both in fleece and breed, with Woolmaker2, Ayaviri and Vorago genetics while Karaka's dam Hinakura is by Brutus out of a Inti line female.  A variety of colour options in these genetics.

Kauri is a well build medium size male with good bone strength , excellent conformation and with real presence. His fleece is well structured with very good lustre and it is very fine and in an stunning roan/grey colour. It has a well defined structure that goes a long way down. He has a very gentle nature and is easy to handle. Kauri  is certified and is now working.

Kauri's sire OTB Karaka has a very fine fleece (4th fleece FD17.3, SD 3.5) that stays fine and Kauri has inherited this very positive trait, while he received his excellent density through his grandfather Harvest Moon. Both His dam and his sister have consistently fine fleeces.

Kauri has had great success in the shows in breed as well as fleece. Kauri received Champion Grey Fleece in the National Fleece Show 2016 with his first fleece. His second fleece was even better and was awarded CHAMPION GREY FLEECE, in the Mackenzie Show, beating his first fleece into second place.

Success in the show ring is a family affair, as both his sister OTB Manuka, his sire OTB Karaka and his Grandsire Harvest Moon received numerous first places and reserve and full championships in both breed and fleece.

We will consider selling a half share in OTB Kauri.
