Fox is 14, but he acts like he's 7. If you want better EPDs and uniform, fine, pigmented gray fleeces with no guard hair, here you go! This line produces lingering 13 to 19 micron pigmented gray fleeces...consistently. I combined Fox's first five fleeces into one lot to make yarn at Heart and Soul and they commented on the uniformity of the lot. Thanks to his sire, Royal Bronze, Fox is a master at overall uniformity, removing guard hair and fining down fleeces and adding more crimps p ...

"At this time, we are not interested in selling Truffles. She has been a wonderful producing dam for us, and no matter who we breed her to, she has an outstanding offspring." - 11/1/16 from Nancy.

Sold to Alpaca Country Estates. Silvie was bred to .38 Special son, U.S. Steel!
Her U.S. Steel cria, Estates Silver Titan, placed second at CABA 2014!

Silvie is so incredibly smart. At the auction, with people constantly coming into the pen, she began to move into position automatically for people to see her fleece.

Gray breeders have commmented that she is a beautiful female with a beautiful fleece. Her fleece exhibits excellent character tail to ears...fineness, crimpy primaries, color, density, brightness, long staple, a soft handle and an absence visible guard hair. She always runs to greet me, is very smart and sweet and she likes to be with people.

Yocum-McColl told me that her fleece is a rare, true (pigmented) gray and very nice, long, fine and silky.

Her paternal sister, Reyna (MSG @ 15.6 m), placed first at Alpacapalooza '12 and is also in the AOBA auction. They are Fox's two best gray daughters so far.

Her sire, Snowmass RRoyal Fox (2010 AOBA Gray Composite Champion), is from Snowmass' Royal Bronze and Casanova bloodlines. He's a full Peruvian with '98 imported true black and maroon granddams, so he's unrelated to all other gray bloodlines!

Silvie's dam produced multiple champion and blue ribbon winners. Her third fleece earned a blue ribbon over Futurity champion P. Microsoft in 2000 under judge Julie Skinner. She was the best daughter of P. Andrajo (Alianza sire of Mr. Roosevelt who sired Crescent Moon's Donato) and consistently put 3/4 to 1 pound / day on her crias with high IgGs (2000-3000+). Silvie was her dam's 12th cria.

Her 3/4 maternal sister is Carmelina, a Res. Champ. Her maternal brother is Constantino, our Champion who won blue and purples for 5 years and produced our Casimiro, a TB Res. Champ. - 18 m / 3.0 sd / 16.7 cv.

Her pedigree is consistent for maintaining phenotype, quality fleece and fineness beyond five years.

Paternal Brother, Graphite - 1st Futurity 2012!

Paternal Sister, Reyna - 1st Alpacapalooza 2012!
