Born: 19/05/08 Colour: Solid Medium Brown

Van Diemen Qjori of Patou was selected by Sue and I from the Van Diemen herd owned by Bob and Diane Hey in Tasmania in 2009 when we visited their farm. Qjori had an extraordinary fleece with characteristics that we had not seen in a brown herdsire in the UK. We simply had to bring him home to the UK. Qjori started working here in 2011 and his first cria arrived in 2012. Up to 2016 he now has 77 registered progeny. The majority of his offspring have been brown although when put to a black dam he invariably produces black. He has also produced grey progeny, his sire and dam are both grey.

Over half the females in the Patou herd are now Qjori progeny and all have inherited the super soft handle that he possesses. It is testament to his quality that we have retained so many of his progeny and that so many have gone on to win championship sashes and become herdsires in their own right.

Qjori is a strong well balanced male with a deep broad chest and a powerful presence. He has retained a fine, dense, soft-handling fleece to this day with his 2017 fleece still registering a micron of 26.

If you are looking for colour and soft handling fibre Qjori is still producing the goods!
