Our first cria born at the FORT, hence he received the name, Fort Fisher's First Line of Defense. With his excellent cria weight gain, Defense was quickly nicknamed "Tank". He not only had a great start to his physical frame with great conformation but also to his beautiful fleece. Kristen Burhmann, AOBA judge commented at the MIAF show, "He has impressive density and consistent locks. Good style." It will be interesting to log in his blanket fleece weight at his first shearing this spring 2011. With Tank's pleasant personality, he has done extremely well in the youth obstacle classes, as well.

Tank began his herdsire "career" at 23 months old and has two beautiful girls on the ground this summer 2012! If you are looking for dark in your color genetics, Tank has it to offer! One silky bay black, Cascabel and one tightly locked brown girl, Brown Beauty. Check out the pictures on the girls' own page.

Contact the FORT to see Tank in "person" and schedule a breeding to one of your dams.
