News flash! After spending last summer here, Kit will be returning to his summer home later this spring. We're once again offering a special on his breeding fee, good only if used before he leaves. Grab it while you can:)

This year saw 2018 daughter Ebonni Carson win CC in walking fleece (TB) at the Gold Country Gathering under Wini Labrecque! We're so in love with all his cria, but this one is truly special:)

It's early 2019 and his batch of fall cria are growing like weeds! There are tw...

Bidding Info


Shown twice this Spring, Risa was awarded a 6th place ribbon at the 2017 Nationals - the competition was extreme, as was her behavior, lol.

Then, 7 weeks later, Peter Kennedy, (renowned breeder of blacks himself), awarded her the Blue in another tough class of 7 at GWAS, which included several of the girls that had placed above her at Nationals. We think her additional fleece growth, plus some additional halter training, (she is very sweet and smart) allowed her to show her true colors.
Peter Loved her fleece, and you can see why. ;^)

Risa went on to win 1st Place in a very competitive Juvie class of 7 and Reserve Champion Black Female, earning 78 points at the 2017 AOA National Fleece Show. Peter Kennedy's comments: "Beautifully soft fleece, bright and soft to hand". We're told the black classes were extremely competitive and that Peter Kennedy was heard to say he was blown away by the quality of the blacks.

She is slick, dense and crimpy - fine - Handle Handle Handle!
From 2 classic grey parents - (Check out her dad's page!)
Almost full Peruvian - Yum!
She'll fit into any color program you have - and she has the genetics to improve it.

Her name is Risa (think Lisa with an "R"), which means laughter, and she sure puts a smile on our faces.
We can't stop feeling her bright bright bright silky fleece.
Yeah, I know bright and lustrous are redundant (unless you're a suri breeder, wink!) -
but this little one just begs for more adjectives.
Beautiful head, perfect bite.

She is growing into an absolutely wonderful young lady -
She will be a superb producer for a black or grey program.
