One of my favorite treasures here at Alpaca Heights is Oreo Kid's first daughter, Nickel Gray, a 2005 AOBA National 3rd place winner. No need to ask 'Who's Your Daddy?' with this girl either!
Her 1st 2 daughters are multiple Blue ribbon winners (Rose-Marquis & Silver Threads). Her recent cria and 3rd daughter, Magnifica, should be a winner too!
Nickel Gray will be breeding to Providence Laurent as soon as the weather breaks in the Spring.

Making a name for himself here in Michigan, this Accoyo's Goldsmith son is producing stunning offspring in all colors. Take a look at these recent stats from his 11 month old white son, Sonata...Micron 16.6, SD 3.7, CV 22.0, CF 100%.
Need more proof? OK, his true black son Nebulous (2010 Micron is 20!) took the Blue & Reserve at the Michigan Spring show, AND 2nd at the Level 5 Indiana Show. His gray son, Urban Cowboy took the Blue at the Michigan Spring show. His gray daughter, Silver Threads, took 2 Blues in 2 shows in 2009.
Laurent's import dam, PPPeruvian Finesse is the mother of multi-Champions, including the great Dom Lucilio.
Laurent's sire, Accoyo's Goldsmith, is also known for his multi-Champions in many colors.
Density, fineness, brightness, crimp, thick bone. His trademark.
First thing you'll notice, well maybe the 2nd thing because you're first going to notice the gorgeous gray color....is her beautiful head. Full topknot with a short muzzle, that's Silver Threads. She exhibited excellent mothering skills and milking ability with her first cria Princess and birthed her easily. I have purposely kept her open to keep my herd numbers manageable but she's more than willing to be bred. Two shows, two Blue Ribbons!
I have retired from breeding my girls but I'm very involved with their fiber harvest as well as our busy Jiffy Fiber Tumbler business. Now is the time to purchase this girl, get her in your Spring breeding program and see if you can get some nice grays out of her. I will include in the sale a quantity of special yarn now being processed. The tri-color swirl effect includes not only Silver Threads' fiber but her sister Rose-Marquis & mother Nickel Gray!
