We are now offering 1/2 interest in NeverSummer's Manchester!!! Sharing this incredible male can be a great benefit to both parties as Manchester is throwing beautiful offspring. Dark Fawn when bred to fawn, True Black when bred to black and Rose Grey when bred to Rose Grey!! Manny is showing us he is a great producer of black! He threw 5 black offspring in 2016!

**Look at the fiber stats for 2016!! (68 months of age) AFD 23.06; SD 3.94; CV 17.1 and CF of 97.68**

Manchester has the gorgeous dark brown fleece with black points and with his background from .38 Special and NeverSummer's Ladysmith, he is sure to produce incredible color of brown, black or grey. His fleece is dense and bright with wonderful handle, bundling and definition. Awesome zipper crimp style! Manchester is a very big boned male and has incredible presence and conformation. As he matures he is just getting better and better.

Manchester's 2014 blanket shear weight is 6# of gorgeous fleece! WOW!! *this fleece won 1st and RC at the 2015 GWAS level 3 fleece show* Manchester's 2015 fleece took a 2nd place in class at 2015 AOA Nationals at the age of 55 months! The MAN has it!

Manchester's juvenile histogram is AFD 16.3, SD 3.6, CV 22.0 and %>30 0.05 Awesome, YES!
2012 histogram is AFD 19.0, SD 4.0, CV 21.1 and %>30 1.5% (sheared 5/8/12)- SOLD to BACK 40!
2013 histogram is AFD 17.8, SD 4.0, CV 22.2 and %>30 1.1 (sheared 6/1/13)- 1st place Fleece show at FallFest 2013!

Manchester's offspring are looking great! As was our intention, he covered several colors of dams so that we can prove out what he will throw. He has thrown rose grey, true black, fawns and browns. Our observation at this time is that he throws a shade or two darker than the dam. Manchester' daughter PJA's Mariah claimed a Reserve Color Brown Female banner at GWAS 2016!

While NeverSummer's Manchester is standing at his home in Hesperus, CO we would also love to see him work more and stand with a partner in a different state. Contact us for more information!
