We are pleased to have added Silvercloud Farm's Danielle to our foundation herd here at Morning Sky Farm! Along with great conformation and calm temperament, Danielle exhibits a luxuriously soft and dense fleece, long staple length, and beautiful bundling, and her offspring have proved the same. Her fineness is characterized in the fleeces of the females in her lineage including her dam, ScF Eva, whose fiber stats at age 3 were 21.6 micron, SD 3.9 and CV 18.3. Her grand dam, PCA Santolina - a ...

Description

Morning Sky's Sweet Thing is the first born of our lovely award winning female, Silvercloud Farm's Danielle, and multiple award winner and El Nino son, ScF Mint D'Or.

"Sweetie" has the stunning, typey Accoyo head of her sire, the exact fleece characteristics of her dam, and the excellent conformation of both. She carries volumes of lofty, bright fleece, and has great staple length. She also has Danielle's calm temperament, is very inquisitive, and easily handled.

Sweetie's notable pedigree includes such influential alpacas as:
Caligula
3P Sunipani
Bueno
5P Inca's Ransom
Magnum Gold
El Nino
Evander
and PCA Santolina, who was known for carrying her fineness to an advanced age - a trait which is obviously being continued on by Danielle and Sweetie.

Sweetie gave birth to her first cria in the spring of 2011 - Morning Sky's Delaware (named for one of the Indian tribes that formerly populated Mercer County, in which we live) - a white male by Chieftain. Del is conformationally correct, has fleece with a VERY soft handle and lovely architecture, and a beautiful head that made him the "pretty boy" of that spring's crias.

Sweetie's second cria is the first for our multi-Champion herdsire, Morning SKY's Taddeo, and is a beautiful white female. Morning SKY's Piccolo has square conformation, incredibly dense and very bright fleece with tiny little bundles. At her first show at 1.5 years of age, she placed second, standing above the offspring of a well known, high dollar herdsire.

It is only because she has blue eyes that Sweetie has never been shown (although she's so nice that Bob really wanted to). With a careful choice of herdsire matches, she will be an asset to any breeding program that is focusing on fine fleece.
