This Jumanji son has it all. Most importantly a winning show record for both fleece and halter. We purchased A Man Among Men at the 2016 futurity and he has been winning every since. His record as a juvenile is unmatched, starting with the 2016 Futurity and ending with being in the running for Supreme Champion at the 2017 AOA Nationals. At the nationals he received light color champion in the Invited light classification.
When we looked at this boy at the futurity, Dave & I were simply blown away. I have never seen fiber this beautiful. His full brother was the high seller at the 2016 Futurity auction. Not only is his fiber incredibly dense it is long with the most luster & character I have ever seen. And this was not just our appraisal, everyone at the show were amazed by he and his full brother fiber. Breeder of A Man Among Men Faye Farley of Majestic Meadows was awarded breeder of the year for Man's father Jumangi. Also, Herdsire of the year. We are so honored to have the progeny of this Herdsire of the Year at our ranch.
This boy's fiber and phenotype is all Jumani. The only difference was his fiber is light, but don't let the light fiber shy you away, there is ample color in his background. Man's breeder Faye Farley of Majestic Meadows describes Man Among Men as having a "Breathtaking fleece and breathtaking phenotype". An excellent combination for sure!" All you have to do is look at this fiber and you know he is destined for greatness. AOA agrees by giving Man a first place in white male juvenile fleece in 2016 AOA National Fleece show. The most striking quality is his uniformity. His histogram value for uniformity is outstanding. Check out his histogram and in particular his standard deviation for average fiber diameter of 2.9. His entire histogram is exceptional. His fleece is bright, has luster and a sweet soft handle.
A Man Among Men has lots of color in his background. His full brother is brown and his mother and father are dark fawn. Grandmother and Grandfather on mother's side are dark brown and true black respectively. His color breeding will be versatile in producing both light and dark with the right pairings. His first offspring out of a white dam is white.
Man's show ring record to date is outstanding and we look forward to many more awards in his adult show performance. He is breeding at this time is by invitation. But please feel free to contact us with your inquiries. Look in AOA for Man's 2017 EPD trait values, some of the best I have ever seen for all around values.
