Alto was a friendly little male with lots of potential. Full of colour, he was a light silvery grey with lots of dark rose grey apaloosa spots. His fibre should be absolutely gorgeous handspun, and we were pleased to see that he was covered with a multitude of small, grey spots after shearing.
Fibre wise, he was very fine, with a consistent crimp style across his blanket, and across his colours. He was very soft, and very bright, and his fleece carried a very, very long staple length that we hoped would continue into his future fleeces.
He was very solidly built, with a nice square stance and upright carriage. We expected him to mature into a very handsome male, and with his
lineage we didn't doubt that he would. He was out of BR Law & Order, a beautiful modern grey macho with a lineage and show record that proves he is as nice as he looks. His dam, Shahkell is equally beautiful, with a pretty brown coat and a lineage that is packed full of colour as well as popular names such as Snowmass Shatoosh. Between her lineage, and Law & Order's own ancestry (including one of the top colour producing studs in Canada, Pokemon brew), Alto was a promising young male.
It is with a heavy heart that we must report the loss of Alto. He passed away after suffering a twisted gut over the summer of 2014— despite our best efforts, there was nothing that we nor the vets could do to save the little guy.
