Carmine has developed well into a strong, nicely conformed dam with lovely richly colored fiber that feels great to the touch.

Her first cria was a beautiful CMSG girl by Steel Fox, a male we sadly lost after the bomb cyclone storm of 2018. We bottle fed her for her first couple of weeks but her strength finally gave out as she died in my arms. So, we were sad as we lost her and the only grey offspring from her sire in the same year (needless to say, the storms that year really set us back).

Based on Carmine's ability to throw grey (not surprising since her dam is full sister to our champion CMRG dam who has produced many greys for us), we had bred her to Silver Signature in hopes of tapping into her grey heritage. However, Carmine graced us with fine fibered black male instead.

Though we still have interest in her for our grey program, we know she will produce black, too -- which is good as well.

This is a good thing since an oopsie at the gate let some of our boys mingle with our new moms and apparently Carmine was willing. She is now bred to either Stradivarius or Truthsayer. Since we would be fine with either offspring, we decided to let nature's course play out and see what serendipity brings us next year.
