Millie is a hands off easy (no issues, ever) care, excellent dam, and producer of color! This is not surprising, since her lineage has a solid base of Bolivian and Chilean color. She is really protective of her crias, but that is easy to work around with judicious bracketing of animals in different pens, so we don't have any headaches with that. She has built a trust level with us that makes things move along fine. Since her arrival on our farm, Millie has produced for us a silver girl from ...

We think this boy is the darkest 'silky' type we have seen! His fiber is slick and shiny that it looks and almost feels wet! Even judge Tim Lavan commented that his fiber looked almost like it was wet! He has LOTS of fiber on him, and with a really long staple so that it droops somewhat when he is at his peak length. But don't be fooled by this and think that he is not dense... he has a lot of fiber packed on him! He has white fibers in his blanket but not consistently enough to cla ...

Silver is a grey female with grey/black genetics that is proven to produce grey crias. She has soft handle with consistent micron and crimp style across her blanket. Even her 7th fleece spun into a lovely even-colored, lofty, soft next-to-skin yarn that maked beautiful accessories.

Proven Dam of Grey!

Consistently produces grey crias that have often sold as weanlings (except the last one, which we are keeping!):
• MSG female by Emerald Farm’s Rincon Cloud that is producing her own great crias at a client's farm (sold)
• DSG male by Silver Peruvian Master Piece with very fine, silky fiber. (died)
• DSG male by Black Maelstrom with looks to die for. (sold)
• DSG female by Royal Steel that is so very fine, and very dense, with a silky fiber and bold crimp (NFS)

Silver has:
• Genetic Diversity from the Overused Grey and Black Genetics.
• Calm and Friendly -- an ‘Easy Keeper’.
• Consistent Grey Coloration w/Minimal Spotting.
• Uniform character and micron, good density, wonderful handle and loft when spun.
• Well covered, dark eyes, nice wedge face and ears.
• Solid bones, good frame and straight conformation, and moves easily and gracefully.
• Little change in micron and uniformity as she ages (especially for a grey) between micron counts.

We have bred her to our Major General -- a male that is 'rooted to the ground' with a bold consistent crimp in his long and dense fiber. We are planning on another grey cria!
