Price: Sorry, Kowhai and Cottonwood have been sold

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. 

Fineness that 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.


As we were so happy with her first cria, Kowhai has now been remated to Homestead Farm Caesar ET and is due March 2020.

Cottonwood is a very special cria with a very lustrous well nourished curly fleece that goes a long way down. She is a very even medium fawn in colour.
