AFCNA graded Buttercup's 2011 tui fleece as royal baby.
Jan 2013: Buttercup is a stunning, stand-out female. She looks better each year and is maintaining type, fineness and crimp with voluminous fleece.
Her dam and maternal granddam produce outstanding crias with Constantino and our Tino daughters are producing dynamite crias with Snowmass RRoyal Fox!
Champion sired and will be champion bred to our 2010 AOBA Grey Composite Champion, Snowmass RRoyal Fox! The cria will have the famous bloodlines of Snowmass Royal Bronze, Snowmass Casanova, P. Bueno, 4P Black Magic, CP Black Hawk, P. Andrajo and P. Misty Maiden.
Buttercup's full siblings are: our 2009 Alpacapalooza Black Reserve Champion, Casimiro (18.0 afd / 3.0 sd / 16.7 cv...true black!), and our lovely Claresse and she is a paternal half sister to our gorgeous, knock-out MB Christina.
Buttercup has very correct phenotype that includes spear-shaped ears, depth of jaw, low tail set and correct leg structure. Her LF roan fleece has excellent density, fineness, high crimp definition, brightness, uniformity, staple length and a very silky - soft handle. With her vicuna shading and with her fleece genetics she will reliably produced dark colors with these desirable characteristics. She is average sized and her fleece coverage extends to her toes.
Her sire is our very handsome champion Constantino who won blues and purples for fives years from top judges and in steep competition. He is stamping his image on his crias consistently! In addition, his bloodline is known for its off the charts lactation and IgG's.
Bloodlines: 4P Black Magic (Sollocota), P. Misty Maiden (Sollocota), Desert Sun, CP Black Hawk (Pinaya), 4P Lanarks Locota (Malaquito; my first herdsire). P. Andrajo (Alianza). She is unrelated to Accoyo and Snowmass bloodlines...and crossed with those lines, her family produces top show contenders...huge potential!
