In 2014, Chilkoot was assessed by Senior Judge, Amanda VandenBosch as an “A-“. He has consistency in micron as well as in color, large bones, and a gentle temperament.

Chilkoot’s sire is Patagonia’s Lennox, the ultimate Multi-Champion herdsire. His dam, Patagonia’s Augusta, is a top-line production dam on our ranch...

Brokered for a ranch in New Hampshire!

When Camby first arrived here, my initial impression of her was that she was cute, but just didn't have much going on fleece-wise, and I thought she'd do best as a "starter girl." She hung out here over the winter, and I figured she could go to a beginning farm in the spring.

As time went on, I noted that it was nearly impossible to tell her apart, physically, from an elite-quality Tuscan Gold daughter who lives in the same paddock. So, she had really great conformation and breed type. Her head is undeniably beautiful, and I am a head nut ...

Then one day I went to evaluate her fleece for a client, and ... Wait, what?

Okay, she could be a bit finer (probably around an AFD of 20-22), and her crimp is bold. But brightness ... Oh my WORD, brightness ..!

She's also packing a serious staple length, and that isn't always easy to come by.

I will confess that she doesn't "feel" dense -- but I have been mightily deceived in the past, especially with fleeces that are this long and bright.

Camby is sired by Patagonia's Chilkoot, a bay black Lennox son, and out of a daughter of the great Victor's Hemicoyo Casanova. For a grey program like ours, this makes her a really nice combination of outcross genetics on the sire's side, and a good candidate to line-breed on Victor's Hemicoyo Casanova using our .38 Special boys.

... Then, I'm also a little bit tempted to see if she could produce Harlequin. She is a fading fawn ...

Camby has a lot of options. Although she could use improvement in a few areas, I've decided that she's way too nice for a "starter" female. I think she's going to make some very nice offspring, either on our farm or yours.
