Premier Stratos was loaned to us in 2016 by his owners and breeders Dave and Fran Goulden.
We needed a new male and Dave said this boy will not let you down. Well he hasn’t let us ndown and we were so impressed with the Cria he left on the ground, we offered Dave and Fran a price for Stratos they could not refuse.
So in 2018 ve purchased Premier Stratos and he joined our Stable of top qulity Stud Males.
Stratos was not halter trained when he first arrived and he took a wee while to decide that having a halter on and being led to the girls was not such a bad idea. It is always entertaining halter training a 10 year olf Male, but he walks really well now.
Stratos had only ever been used very sparingly and only had a hand full of Cria on the ground.
It is amazing that a Male of this quality has gone on undetected for so long.
Stratos being unknown is about to change …………………..
“Premier Stratos” in 2016 as an 8 year old.
Stratos has a very dense, fine fleece that is extremely soft to the handle and has an incredible white brightness to it.
He is a placid gentle male that is easy to handle and his offspring exhibit the same traits.
When his first Cria arrived on the ground, the first thing we noticed was that they had no Medulated fibres anywhere on them. Their fleeces were very thick and were a mass of curls and had a very slippery feel to them.
It was when they reached about 10 weeks of age that we could see how they were developing and then we started to get excited.
Last year we put some of our very best females to him and that proved to be a very good move. This season we have put him over a range of females, including some coloured females to see what he does with them.
We are really looking forward to see what he does with these females.
As you can see from his Pedigree below, Premier Stratos has a very impressive background with a double cross of Highlander.
“The Fleece Type Premier Stratos produces”
Pictured above is a fleece shot of one of Stratos’s Cria.
We mated him last season to Homestead Farm Sophie Ella and the result is a Male Cria (as yet to be named) who is looking just fantastic.
This young male will be grown up and I am sure he will become a Stud Male in his own right.
That’s 2 boys in a row for Sophie Ella, hoping for a girl this season.
