Shahkell is a beautiful, coloured female with a buttery soft fleece and a proud carriage. Well grown, Shahkell has both lovely conformation and a feminine head. We really love her fibre. For a brown breeding female she is maintaining her fineness, with only 22.1µ in 2013, and a comfort factor of 98%. Her 2016 results told us that not only is she maintaining that fineness, but with a CV of 15.9, she is the most uniform animal on the farm alongside Samantha. You can really feel it when you touch her fleece.
She is a light brown, with deep grey points, and a lineage that suggests she will throw colour just as well. Her dam's side is full of colour, with grey and darks everywhere. This has come through in her progeny, when bred to Law & Order, a modern grey stud, Shahkell produced Alto, a beautiful silver grey male.
Her sire is Quechua's Shahtoosh, a well known male in the Canadian Futurity, excelling in 2010 and 2011. Her grandsire, Snowmass Quechua, was the 2002 US Futurity White Colour Champion, as well as Futurity
Herdsire of the year in both 2006 and 2007. Furthermore, Shahtoosh's half brother, Snowmass Matrix, was the high selling male in 2010, selling for over $600,000 USD. So far, we are really liking the combination, and are pleased to see that it is pairing well with our own male's genetics! Her 2018 cria Khagan has gone on to take both 1st and Reserve Grand Champion Brown at his very first show, and we are expecting a long show career coming his way!
