Gray genetics are always coveted, and Katoomba has them on both sides of his registration. His sire, MaRS Taxco, is an award winning silver gray son of Patagonia's Drake, son of Danko. Drake passed away a couple of years ago making his genetics limited in supply. Katoomba's dam, LRA Chasse, has gray on her dam's side.

Talk about a solid young male, Katoomba was shorn at the age of 2 1/2 months and he weighed in at 54 pounds! He is structurally solid with heavy bone. His bite is correct, and his presence is noticed immediately. His fleece is very consistent with defined crimp coming in stronger with age as would be expected. And the coverage couldn't be better! There is very little in the way of spots on his entire fleece, just a beautiful light rose gray, almost lavender!

Katoomba began his breeding career on our farm and has so far produced 3 daughters and 4 sons - 2 of the boys have his lavender gray color!
