This guy is an absolute tank. He has the most solid, sturdy and biggest build of all our males. His show record is impressive, as are his crias. There is nothing not to like about this guy, his coverage and staple length is astounding. He is so dense and very, very, consistently crimped and is in the top 1% of EPDs for fleece weight. His handle is great, you literally can FEEL his crimp!
When you look at Aztec's pedigree, you see loads and loads of white. His entire sire's side and most of his dam's side is just filled with white lines. Nice white lines! We generally don't breed for white, we love fun colors, including grey, patterns, harlequins, etc so where does he fit into our herd right? Now, if you take a look on Aztec's dam's, Dumplin, side of the pedigree, you will see some color show up. It looks like even pattern lines. Aztec does have a few solid dark fawn spots here and there and I had a hunch he would produce some cool colors. So I bred him to greys, dark females with dark lines and an appy, boy, were we pleasantly surprised by what we got! Two beautiful rose greys(out of classic greys), a potential harlequin (her color changes from a light brown to a darker grey), an appaloosa and a light brown/dark fawn with a black spot on her leg. And let me tell you their fiber looks fantastic so far!
Aztec is one of those males that, depending who you breed him to, can produce colors on both sides of the spectrum of amazing quality. I think that can be such a useful quality to have on your farm, so you aren't limited to what your guy can do for you.
