A true Secret!

WHISPER A SECRET AT GRAZING HILLS

HuacayaFemaleWhite
AOA# DOB: 9/22/20119 yrs
Secret is a true secret to our farm! Each year, we are so amazed at the prodigy she puts on the ground: always crimpy, always fine, always an amazing handle! When bred to our bay black herdsire, Ephraim, she throws either a medium fawn to medium brown! Summer 2017 we bred her to another herdsire, Hezekiah, and she threw a beauitful beige boy whom we have named Santos (which means Saint). She was bred to our herdsire, Warrior and produced and awesome little studly male, Wolfgang (sold). She was bred to our newer herdsire, Encore and delivered a beautiful dark brown girl, Autumn's Secret, on Sept. 27th 2020. Secret will be rebred Spring 2021 to Encore. 2020 Histogram: AFD...

He's got a nice, short face with a beautiful staple and is such a beautiful color!

GRAZING HILLS CASPER'S CHARISMA

HuacayaFemale (bred)Dark Fawn
AOA# DOB: 6/4/200614 yrs
Charisma's first cria, Dimitri, maintained amazing 2nd year fleece stats of 15.1 AFD with an SD of 3.5! We love that production!! Dimitri has been sold to the UK, but he was here for his third shearing, and that fleece tested at 17.3 AFD, 3.5 SD...and this was after starting his breeding career...he is one fine, beautiful boy! Charisma gave us a medium fawn female that sold to Canada - a full sister to Dimitri. A third breeding to Diomedes gave us another male, and he is one we are watching very closely for his breeding potential. Charisma has a lovely fleece... fine, super bright - she shines from a distance - lots of crimp and length. Charisma's second fleece came in much more dense th...

GRAZING HILLS EPHRAIM

HuacayaHerdsire (Male)Dark Brown, Bay Black
ARI# AOA# 32648096   DOB: 7/24/20128 yrs
How do you say SIMPLY GORGEOUS?...we say EPHRAIM! From his incredible head to his toes, the coverage of fine, crimpy fleece will take your breath away. We had originally thought we would send a Diomedes daughter to Colorado to pair with Tuscan Gold, but somehow Athena drew that straw. The minute she delivered Ephraim we knew it had been the right choice. She has always produced dark offspring from light sires, but this shiny black cria was a beautiful surprise, and there were more to come. When we sheared Ephraim as a cria, the rolling skin on his neck and chest were beyond anything we had experienced. You can see some of the rolls in the picture of him at a few weeks. It probably...

Carly delivered a beautiful little male in July 2015 from our own herdsire, Lexington. We named him Ragnar. We were quite impressed when he was born. He was up and running at just 45 minutes of age and hasn't slowed down since! The fleece was so dense, it was hard to find skin. We loved the look and the potential and Carly hasn't let us down! Ragnar placed 6th at May's 2016 CABA Classic in Portland where he was up against some intense competition! We were very pleased!
