Chimi Changa is a strong male out of Bernabe El Boliviano (who has black in his ancestry) and a Peruvian Aureo daughter. He has proud, correct conformation with heavy bone and a typey face. His dark fawn/light brown fiber is dense, with good regrowth. With each shearing, he is showing more and more of a gray hue to his fiber, so it will be interesting to see what he can produce. Chimi is very interested in breeding, although he has not yet had the opportunity.

At this time, Chimi is only available to travel for outside breedings within roughly a 200 mile radius of the farm, or for drive-by visits here to the farm. Since we have so few females to use Chimi over, we are also offering him for sale at a very reasonable price. Look at his show record and then come take a look at him if you are interested in a solid potential herdsire.
