You've seen the ads from Pacific Crest..."For lasting fineness...breed to the Accoyo America's Nautilus line." We couldn't agree more! And now is your chance to own one of the line! Diomedes has that perfect combination of fineness and density with an indescribable brightness, and he is passing it on...in lights and in color! First histograms on his offspring are fabulous! Of the 11 that we tested in 2010, all but three fell under 17 microns (with those 3 at 17.2, 19.1, 19.2,) and the SD's ran...

We bought this girl (she is "Amy" to us) for several reasons, not the least of which was the gorgeous sample of fleece we got from her previous owners; it displayed a lovely crimp, fine handle and unbelievable staple length. She is registered as a light fawn, but the bulk of her blanket fleece is really a light rose grey.

And beyond looking at the fiber, her pedigree was certainly nothing to sneeze at with the Chaccu grandsire and Bueno great grandsire. We had none of the Chaccu line on o...

We acquired Encore in Spring 2019.
We have been using him as a herdsire for several of our females.
Encore has SUCH a presence and is an excellent breeder...getting the job done in 10 minutes!

He's got a nice, short face with a beautiful staple and is such a beautiful color!
Encore's 2019 histogram speaks for his fleece....

Description

She delivered her first cria with apparent ease...when we checked before 6:00am September 16th, the baby was already nursing. It's a beautiful little female from PC Running Late that we named Bright and Early! Please check out the photos! Running Late always puts very fine fleeces on his offspring, and this cria was no exception.

Her 2015 cria, Adele, was also no exception! A beautiful medium fawn with eyeliner like her namesake! At her 1st shearing (6/8/16), she was a 15.7 micron and quite dense!

Abby was 24 pounds at birth and never slowed in growth so was very ready to breed the fall of 2010 as a yearling. The pedigree of this full Peruvian beauty includes great grandsires Caligula, Hemingway, Chaccu, and Snowmass Casanova. Add in Sicuani, Chipaya, Condori, and Picchucha on the female side for a real GENETIC POWERHOUSE!!

Abby has a lovely fine fleece and lots of it...superb density, uniform crimp. She is a beige as she sports a fawn coloration (see photos) on the back of her head and neck -- almost a tuxedo style -- as well as down her topline. Abby will produce color when bred to color. Please ask us to send you a sample of her fleece...you will appreciate the quality once you get to see and touch.

Abby is a healthy, well-proportioned girl, and we expect she will be a great producer of gorgeous crias for many years.

She was bred to one of our herdsires, King Hezekiah in 2017. She delivered a healthy fawn boy, who we named Archer. We are expecting a fine dense fleece from this match! We re-bred her back and she was due Summer 2019. She had a beautiful fawn girl, who we named Arya. She is already sold!

Abby is bred to our newer herdsire, Encore (a dark brown male).

Adele is named after the singer because of her beautiful black eyelined eyes... She takes after her dam, Abigail though, in her fineness and stature....
