Otaio Bridge Kowhai and her Female Cria Cottonwood
Dam: Otaio Bridge Cassinia
Price: Offers over $5000 + GST. (No GST for export.)
Kowhai is a quality young female with a beautiful fine fleece in a soft apricot colour. Her fleece is dense and well alligned with a high frequency crimp. She is well grown with a sturdy frame and good conformation.
She comes from a strong female line. Her grand dam was the matriarch of our herd from a very early age until she was sold many years later.
stays fine is a family trait. Her dam Cassinia was 14.8mu in her first
fleece and only 20mu in her 6th fleece. Her sire Hermes, a multiple champion,
has added length and more density.
Another family trait is the high fertility,
easy birthing and good mothering. Kowhai has been a very good Mum to her cria with a plentiful milk supply
Kowhai has great genetics with her sire Aquaviva Hermes bringing the Kaihere Peruvian Ven Chura and Jolimont Commisario lines and her dam Cassinia, an ILR Alpine Fibre Brutus daughter, also brings the Inti lines.
