Olly was a super solid cria - built like a tank and growing like a weed. His heritage is 11/16 Peruvian, 1/4 Bolivian and 1/16 Chilean. Olly has solid conformation and strong bone, covered in dense, lustrous fiber that is buttery soft. He looks like he has inherited the best from both parents. He is also as sweet as pie! Olly has excellent Bolivian genetics from his mother, as well as some of the finest in Peruvian genetics including Mahogany Prince and Uribe through his sire.

Judge Helen Humphreys placed him second in a remarkably tough class of three at North American. He took the gate in an amazing class of 14 at MAPACA, but was in the running until the very end - Tim Lavan commented that he could have placed ten of the animals in the class, and given how many times he came back to Olly, he was one of those animals. I am sure that he will show as well or better in his second fleece.

Olly's first histogram has some very nice numbers: an AFD of 21.59 micron, an SD of 3.87 micron and an excellent CV of 17.91. His price includes breeding rights, and he's already competing with the big boys to be one of the top machos in the pen.
