Dean was first shown at competition in 2012 where he won the junior male Huacaya (6 to 12 months) section. His fleece also won the grey section (6 to 12 months) at the Manawatu show. In 2014 he won Champion grey fleece at the Levin show with an impressive score of 71.5. Even now, his fleece is still very soft, confirming his ability to provide fineness in his off-spring.
He has a wonderfully calm temperament and is easy to handle. It is notable that Dean has produced many more female than male crias.
Dean has some impressive genetics in his background including ILR Alpine Fiber’s Brutus, Peruvian Hemmingway and Purrumbete Brigantine.
Details of his ancestry can be viewed here. With Dean's background, it should be no suprise that his crias have ranged from solid blacks, browns and whites through to the different grey varieties. His 2018 progeny born at Te Korito stud have been a solid black and a medium brown cria, both female. Several of his previous crias have been very successful in the show ring.
