Buccaneer is finally retired from showing and loves being a full time stud! We ended his show career on a high note which was due to his fleece is retaining it's amazing quality and retaining it's fineness! Buccaneer also has a powerful frame and that power continues into the fleece. He is also proving his strength in being a breeding male by the high quality offspring he is producing! This is the true black herdsire to check out and with offspring on the ground and winning ribbons and championships in the shows what more could you want!
The Buccaneer is definately pleasing us with his offspring as he is passing on his fineness, excellent bone and gorgeous head! He has also been correcting conformation issues which is one of the hardest things to correct. He is simply amazing...we do believe that the reason he is maintaining his fineness is due to his dam, Hana. We did a Histogram on her 2010 fleece, which would make her 10 years old, and it was still holding a 21 micron. Truly Incredible! Buccaneer has one of the best show records for a True Black, with 13 banner (8 of those as an adult) he has proven that he is a top of the line male and now he is proving it again with his offspring!
The Results are in for Buccaneer's Progeny and they are extremely outstanding.

UPDATE: Privateer's offspring made their first show appearance March 2019. RG Privateer's First Mate took two 1 firsts and Grey Color Champion in both Halter (out of 17) and Walking Fleece (out of 33). RG Harley's Davidson took first of 13 in his Walking Fleece class and then Reserve Color Champion Walking Fleece (25 total). We can now add "Producer of Champions" to Privateer's list of fine qualities.
UPDATE: Privateer’s grey, 3X color champion son sold at 2020 Amber Autumn Auction. Congratulations Jamey Haney on her purchase of this beautiful Privateer offspring. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Privateer's 2017 skin biopsy at 5yrs old by Dr. Norm Evans shows a density of 71 follicles/sqmm. SP ratio is 12.1 to 1 with level 4 of 4 gland presence which correlates with what senior judges are referring to as “well-nourished fleeces”. Secondary fibers average 21.9 microns and primary fibers averaging 30.1 giving him a variation of only 8.2 microns.
I greatly anticipated the arrival of this guy and he is all that I expected and more. He is out Crown Jewel of PVA and SHVN The Buccaneer (who passes on lingering fineness to his offspring), both of whom are multiple champion animals! What a powerhouse background this guy possesses, The Elite Maximus, Hemingway, Bobbie Ann on the dams side and Pot of Gold, Royal Inca Legend on his sire's side, no wonder he is such a gorgeous animal.
Privateer is stunning. As you can see by his fleece, he possesses awesome structure and the brightness to his fleece is blinding. Take that with his gorgeous head and coverage everywhere and we are looking at a boy that will make an excellent herdsire! Privateer's fleece is that "elite" fleece with bundles everywhere and secondary bundles coming out of each bundle, even down to his knee and under his belly and on his chest. He also has dark skin which should allow him to pass color. He has placed well in the shows and has always been up against very tough competition. The animals that placed above him were always from very big farms. So that should tell you where this boys really stands in the line up of future herdsires.
Privateer started his breeding career Fall 2016 and his first cria arrived September 24, 2017-- a beautiful grey boy— Privateer’s First Mate. As of 2020, he has 8 offspring. He tends to throw the color of the female— while significantly upgrading fleece characteristics. If you have a dam that you love the color of and want to look for improvements in AFD (fineness that lasts!), SD, density, crimp, brightness... this is a guy to give strong consideration.
Privateer has the sweetest of dispositions. He is very easy to handle.
