Aquaviva Hermes

Aquaviva Hermes needs no introduction. He has retired now from the show circuit but his show results in both breed and fleece speak for themselves. In the 2013/2014 season Hermes won three consecutive Supreme Championships in a row for his fleece, all by different judges from both Australia and New Zealand. The really good thing is they were for both his third and fourth fleeces, cementing his worth as a stud male. More importantly, Hermes’ cria are now on the ground and we are delighted. Hermes has made his mark, and his cria are all exhibiting the lustre, density and fleece style we anticipated. They are now making their own mark in the show ring in both fleece and breed, with Awatere Lexington winning Supreme Champion at Canterbury show in 2015, as a junior, and up against most of the industry heavyweights.

Judges described his fleece as an advanced fleece type being consistent right across his body. For the breeder looking to add density, fleece length and shear weight to their herd, Hermes is a great choice.
