Not intending to buy, we had to buy this girl as a yearling when we saw her fleece! With her very gentle personality, great health and conformation, we are glad we added her to our herd. Esa has been a great mom and easy keeper. Her first cria was a beautiful boy with striking white markings on his face and a macho look from birth. We could not resist taking a newborn picture with our phone just to post for all to see. This boy grew up to be our herdsire Major General who brought hom ...

13x CH G.Thunder girl!

Judge's comments from one of her first shows as juvie shows one of her fiber qualities... brightness ..."light shining in your eyes!", "so soft to the touch".....

Carnival is a delight to touch and has the fiber to take on the 'big farms' -- shown by her placement in walking fleece above a multiple champion female of 'royalty' bloodlines.

Petite in her juvie and yearling days, she is well grown and filled out nicely for her career as a breeding dam. Her fleece too has been getting better and better in crimp definition, exhibiting fineness, uniformity and density.

Her beautiful 2020 girl is just as shiny and soft as she was as a juvenile. We are thrilled to have her, especially as she is our last Smokejumper offspring and only one of three (fortunately all girls). We named her Torch Glow.

To keep that trend going, we bred her to our Axios, another herd member notable for his shine and softness. We had hoped for another beautiful golden girl or even a grey or black -- both Carnaval and Axios have grey heritage and Carnaval also has dark coloration.

Our cria by Axios came right on time -- a boy with very dark brown (dare I say bay black) coloration. He is strong and healthy with lovely shine, density and crimp. Though we always hope for girls we are happy with this outcome.
