Misty Ridge X-Man's SALINA

HuacayaFemaleBay Black
AOA# DOB: 6/17/200615 yrs
This Peruvian Hemingway and Pperuvian Camilio granddaughter is a lovely black female with a great presence and very solid conformation. She carries a merino-style fleece throughout her blanket that exhibits a glowing brightness. Salina has a strong color background as well as elite genetics. Salina is bred to and exceptional dark silver grey male, Altair's Sterling, who won 1st Place & the Color Championship at the 2007 AWE show at 3 1/2 years of age. Sterling has the uniformity of crimp and high density in his fleece that is typically had to find in a solid dark silver grey fleece. We selected him for his over all power genetics.

Altair's Sterling ASF

Altair's Sterling ASF

Dark Silver Grey
AOA# 849507
This exceptional grey stud is one we choose to further enhance the grey genetics on our ranch. Sterling has the uniformity of crimp and high density in his fleece that is typically hard to find in a solid dark silver grey fleece. Sterling is simply a magnificent macho! Another important element of Sterling is his sire CL9 Altair. We selected him for his over all power genetics. In January 2008, Dr. Norman Evans did skin and fiber evaluations on Altair and he found him to be very impressive and would expect him to pass on his noteworthy fleece traits to his progeny. Sterling like his sire has exceptional hand coming from his uniformity which is key in all fleeces to keep the handle at it finest. Sterling’s histogram at 2 years of age was 18.6 micron, 4.1 SD, 22.2 CV, and 98.5 CF. Sterling completed his show career at last years A.W.E. in Reno. He took 1st and Color Champion in a very large group of very competitive males. Judge Kristin Buhrman stated that any male at 3 ½ years of age that is still maintaining such a high quality of fineness and density is well deserving of the highest honor.
My Peruvian Adrastea

BOASTING 15 MICRON at 6 years old!

My Peruvian Adrastea

AOA# DOB: 7/20/200218 yrs
Adrastea’s fleece (2008 AFD=15.8, SD=3.5, CV=22, %>30=0.6) won a special award for Best Brightness at MaPaca and she won a Blue Ribbon and Reserve Championship in halter at the 2003 OABA show. She has excellent conformation and a beautiful, soft fleece with lots of character. Her 2006 total fleece weight was an incredible 13.5# (and she was pregnant during most of that growth!).

Her grandsire is P. Emilio, a fabulous male with a dense, Accoyo-like crimpy fleece. Her dam is P. Accent, the daughter of Accoyo Peruvian Leon, the darkest Accoyo male in North America.

Although, she is technically beige, Adrastea has gray on her face. Her top knot presents as beige, how...

HuacayaMaleTrue Black
ARI# AOA# 1091861   DOB: 9/30/200416 yrs
TRUE BLACK. And still NO WHITE ... ANYWHERE at the age of 9 + !!! AND, HIS CRIA HAVE HIT THE GROUND RUNNING !!! Commander has produced black, bay black, silver grey & rose grey and brown! His color production appears to be as successful as that of his renown sire, Navigator. This gentle and stately (solid) true black male out of our multiple Color Champion gray herdsire, Navigator, is a real show stopper. Commander's grandparents, on both sides, have exceptional genetics AND lots of color. Commander's dam, PH Felix's Chocolat, has once again given us a blue ribbon winner. Commander's extremely soft, bright fleece exhibits very bold crimp similar to his dam and his half sister. ...

Producer of Award-Winning Offspring !


AOA# DOB: 8/29/200020 yrs
Cleo, a proven, 1/2 Accoyo female and one of our herd’s charmers, started collecting ribbons in very competitive white halter classes in the Spring of 2001. Her dam & sire are Blue Ribbon winners in both Produce & Get Classes. Needless to say, Cleo has superior conformation and a very dense fleece with full coverage which she is passing on to her offspring. Cleo’s first cria, PH Legacy's Kingsley sired by Accoyo Peruvian Legacy, is a gorgeous, large boned white proven female. Kingsley successes in very competitive white classes include three Blue Ribbons and a Reserve Championship. Thank you, Abenaki Acres, for your purchase of Kingsley. Cleome's second cria, PH Casanova's Christianna ...


AOA# 837640
Sold for $217,000 at the 2008 Futurity.

Thank-you to Brenda and Frank Crum of Crum's Criations/Crum Property III, LLC.



The Aga Khan is an incredible package of magnificent fleece, super conformation and incomparable genetics. These attributes have deservedly earned him Twenty Three First Place Blue Ribbons and Eleven Championships to date, including five championships in 2004, four championships in 2005 and, at almost 4 years of age, two in 2006.

His fleece is bright white, has high frequency bold crimp and his density is "second to none" and hard to put into words. "Thick as a brick" comes to mind. Khan has a solid build and a gorgeous head with a crimpy topknot.

This 3/4 Accoyo herd sire has already proven himself to be one of the best white males in the country. The Khan's lineage includes Vengador and Allin Capaca, the two sons of Shere Khan from the Accoyo Ranch.
