We are thrilled to offer Michelangelo's Awakening as a herd sire. He is an established sire of show winning off-spring who often produces gray. We can generally count on Awakening to infuse his cria with superb fineness, density, coverage, and gorgeous phenotype.. They are cute as can be, square, and healthy! Awakening tends to produce the color of the dam. As an example, please note the photos of Broken Halo and his fleece. He is a fine example of what Awakening produces.
We co-own Awakening with Mark and Mara DeBoe of River Falls Wisconsin, Wibotawot Farm.

At AOA Nationals 2014 he took a 1st Place out of a class of 9 dark brown juvenile males. Judge Diana Timmerman comments, "He has a super fine fleece, it has incredible brightness and is very well nourished. It shows excellent architecture throughout and the character extends the length of the staple, it is also evident all the way through and all those characteristics give him great density."
