In October 2021, Magnificent was assessed by AOA judge Arturo Pena as having "a good handle, average micron for black and his age, and good crimp". We think he is a nice looking male with a beautiful head, big bones with lots of leg coverage, and he has a pleasant disposition and walks well on a lead.

This lovely male has his first crias on the ground in 2020!

RED GRANITES LAPU

5x Champion (including 2x AOA Reserve Champ)

Huacaya, Male, Proven | True Black

AOA# 35168522   D.O.B. 6/25/2017

With his fineness, long staple, blanket consistency, and beautifully balanced conformation, Red Granites Lapu is an ebony showcase of the refined elements we cherish in all our Elite Herdsires.  His sire, Kirwin (13X Champion including AOBA), and his dam, Irish Meadows' My Lacy (4X Champion including AOA), are both brimming with supreme champion-colored genetics.

Red Granites Lapu is one of the most exquisite fleeced Kirwin sons born to date and has a very unique combination of genetics. It's not just about the Dam and Sire for us in our breeding program, it's the background of specific lineages to reach the top-quality fleeced animals.  Like his champion line suggests, Lapu carries an extremely FINE fleece all over his body. If you can imagine an extremely dense sheep with fine black bright fleece covering its whole body, and having a medium to long staple length, you can envision Red Granites Lapu... 

In his showing days, Lapu was Red Granite Ranch's #1 Black show string male.  He, along with all his siblings from his pedigree line, shined brilliantly in the showing.

FINENESS & BRIGHTNESS + DENSITY is key when breeding for color, especially black. We will definitely be fusing him into our dark colored lines.

Lapu is settling females!  He has a female confirmed pregnant - Due June 2021!

Stud Fee: $2,500
