A strong pattern history and still loaded in Peruvian / Accoyo heritage! Fine, crimpy, dense fiber.... And she's a great mom, and a proven producer of color and pattern.
Imitation produced a solid color when bred to solid, in our cute as a button "Not Just a Girl" -- a MB 2015 female sired by Peruvian Black Jag. NJAG is in our foundation herd as we tease out her black genetics ;).
Then, she produced her appaloosa girl, Firefly, sired by our appaloosa herdsire Jacob. She is already special with her strongly delineated dark brown, almost bay black, spots all over her white/beige backround. We predict that she will retain her clear spotting --just like her sire, Jacob -- rather than muting into a harlequin grey. That is exactly what we were breeding for! Firefly has sold to a farm interested in appies and we hear she is already bred to a harle male for her 2021 cria!
The next year, Imitation produced a full sister to Firefly who is so close in appearance that you might think they were twins. The same dark spots, the same cute nose button marking and brown feet. Constellation is sold and well on her way to making her own 'mark' at her new farm!
This year, imitation produced a LF male by our black Maelstrom, but OMG is his fiber fine, shiny, crimpy, dense, long -- you name it and he has it! We cannot help but think how this boy wold fit very nicely in a harlequinn / appy program since he has both appy and black genetics.
Imitation is currently bred to our champion grey/multi herdsire Major General for her 2021 cria. Not sure which way this coloration will go but chances are it will be grey or patterned, and it will definitely have beautiful fiber and fantastic conformation -- based on the genetics its parents are bringing to the table.
