Carmen de La Mancha

Huacaya, Female, Proven, Dark Fawn, 1/4 Peruvian, 1/2 Bolivian
ARI# 30329799 | DOB: 9/9/2007

In the fall of 2007, we were under contract to purchase our first pregnant female from Falkor Ranch. Before the ink was dry, Carmen was born. Our very first cria was a little girl! She is still our little love. Although her dam was a big girl, Carmen has always been dainty and feminine. In 2010, we watched our first cria deliver her first cria, a little girl! That little girl went on to be a 7 x blue ribbon winner and a 4 x color champion. Meanwhile, Carmen's fleece continues to be exc...

AutumnSun's Apache Longbow

Huacaya, Male, Proven, Medium Rose Grey, 3/8 Peruvian, 5/8 Chilean
ARI# 31990936 | DOB: 11/13/2011
Longbow is eye-catching in his proud stance and uniform coloration. The reduction of spots on greys in the show ring has been remarkable with a solid blanket being more common, but Longbow still stands out for his extremely uniform rose grey color as his coat is an even 'roaning' heather without spots. With our champion Frosted Red Rose as his dam and Snowmass Enlightenment as his sire, you can see the strong resemblance!

He also inherited his dam's fine, uniform fiber, and a high-frequenc...

Bidding Info


Maria is the total package when it comes to conformation and balance. She'll steal your heart with her calm, sweet disposition. She's a real 'pro' in the ring, having taken a blue ribbon in her 1st eight shows. She went on to claim the color championship four times. In the 2-year old class at GWAS 2013, her grey genetics were begining to show through, so she placed 3rd behind two larger girls from Crescent Moon. If there is anything negative to say about Maria, it would be her smaller size and shorter staple length. However, one hand spinner said she had a lovely, fine, spinable fiber and carding was almost unnecessary. Although her show career in the ring is over, we will continue to look for awards in the spin-offs and see the awards of her offspring for years to come.

Maria is now an experienced mama. Her first born was a Bay Black female by MR Sizzlin' Rose. Her second was a gorgeous Light Fawn female by Autumn Sun's Apache Longbow. That breeding was repeated and produced a mini-Maria. Her newest was born 7/23/19. He is a Dark Fawn male weighing in a 18.6# and growing like a weed! He is the last born of Avatar's Elvis with long legs and fantastic fiber.
