Archangel known as Archie is one of our favorite 2020 cria and our first Agento cria! He did not disappoint!
He has a very stocky frame loaded with dense fiber. His fiber is fine. He is black but is one of those cria that could possibly turn gray.
His sire is our Just Smittens Argento a 5X Champion who has very fine beautiful gray fleece.
His lineage includes FTA's Blackbeard and Grand River Columbo as grandsires. Also included are The Buccaneer, Pot of Gold, and Rincon cloud. His dam brings in the genetics of Baron Von Hershey, Lethan Weapon, Accoyoy Titan, Peruvian Ion and Peruvian Guellermo. Some of the best!
He is packed full of personality and always in the middle of everything. We had not named him yet when I posted a picture of him on Facebook and someone commented that the white marking on his face looked like angel wings, hence the name Archangel. As you can see in his photos though his wings are usually soiled!
This guy will be on the 2021 show string. We have high hopes for him.
Archie has grown into a nice sturdy male. His fleece is fine with a bold crimp. He is now classified as indefinite as he has light fibers showing in his fleece. Given his gray sire this is not a surprise. I suspect that bred to a gray female he could produce gray offspring.
He has a very macho personality but is good on halter and still maintains his curious nature. We love him.
