Huacaya Herdsire (Male) Medium Rose Grey, Dark Rose Grey

AOA# 32585933 DOB: 6/6/201210 yrs
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 ...

AutumnSun's Summer Solstice

Huacaya Open (Female) White, Light Brown

AOA# 31828772 DOB: 6/18/200913 yrs
Summer has a easy personality and excellent mothering skills. Her heritage is filled with color, black and grey, as witnessed in the grey highlights at the edges of her lovely fleece. Her conformation is boxy and straight, well-balanced and strong, giving her an easy movement and confident stature. With Summer's daughter and full sister in our foundation herd, the sons of her sister in our herdsire row and their offspring in our show string... it can be seen that we like these genetics ...

Huacaya Herdsire (Male) True Black

AOA# 35053026 DOB: 6/16/20157 yrs
26x champ, incl. '16, '17, '18 AOA Nat'l AOA Color Champion in 2016 fleece and in 2017 Halter and Fleece! He has more wins that can be counted, but check his show results below to see his consistency! We had been looking for quite a while for that one special black male to add to our herd in complement to our Dark Secret / Black Maestrom line. Fate smiled on us when we saw Stradivaruius as a juvenile to add to our program. Even in his tui tips, when we saw this male, we knew he w ...
Ask a question
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 but her strength gave out and she died in my arms. We sadly lost her as the only silver grey offspring we had then and 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, Rose, 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.

Her next cria for us, sired by our multiple champion Truthsayer, is a strong male that would be a grey if his main color was a dark color rather than light fawn. With his beautiful white marking on his face and light coloration, we named him Crazy Horse after the famous Sioux warrior. She definitely is trying to manifest her grey heritage, she just needs the right pairing!

We have other good options for her in our grey herdsires.... our multi-champion males Artorius and Dauntless, or maybe our upcoming herdsires - evenly colored American Ultra or our Quixotic sons, Trouble and Double Trouble. There are a lot of great grey options! However, we recognize that she also has black and dark coloration in her pedigree and a demonstrated ability to make black. We haven't even tried to breed her to our champion blacks - Maelstrom, Stradivarius, and Guinness - so, lots of potential there. And let's not forget about Axios, who not only has grey heritage but has made two black offspring from brown/fawn dams.

She is a great dam and has really been pushing forward with her cria production. With the loss of her champion grey aunt, Rose, and the sale of her dam a few years back, we are moving her to our foundation list.
