Carnelian is the daughter of the true-black Herdsire, Canzelle's Zambezi. She has her famous sire's "look"--very upright, solid, and lots of presence. Her color is a rich, reddish-brown, like the beautiful semiprecious gem after which she is named. Her fleece is extremely dense, bright, and soft-handling. Through her Dam, "Nellie" is a Victor granddaughter, and a Hemingway great-granddaughter. On Zambezi's side, she has deep high-quality black and gray genetics--Drake is her grandsire, and Danko and Sinopsis Nocturna are both her great-grandsires.
Carnelian had a beautiful light fawn famle out of Greybeard on 6/13/2008. Her name is FMA GreyBeard's Ballantyne. She's looks very very nice.
Carnelian has been bred to AML El Duro's PRINCIPIO, an UNDEFEATED eight time Color Champion and Blue ribbon winner, for a 2009 June cria.
UPDATE- ON 6/29/09 NELLIE GAVE BIRTH TO AN 18.2 White PRINCIPIO MALE. Name is Principio's Cajun Rebel (aka Chuck). Chuck looks awesome.
Principio, is a handsome male who is phenotypically correct. He has a beautiful head, a regal stature, great coverage from head to fetlock,superior density and wonderful fiber stats and characteristics such as, extreme fineness, a very tiny crimp style with excellent amplitude and a wonderful organization and brightness to his fleece. In addition to all this, he has incredible genetics. He is undefeated in the show ring as an 8 X Color Champion. And, just ask anyone wo has seen him and you'll hear the same remarks,.."AN INCREDIBLE MALE," "wish I owned him," "can't wait to breed our female to him to see the offspring," "fiber like I've never seen before on a fawn," and the accolades continue on... One of Principio's first females, Principio's Priscilla,in her first show, just won the Reserve Color Champion at the Midwest Ohio show 2009
This male is offered only 10 times per year for outside breedings.
As of December 20th, 2008, AML's Principio is proudly co-
We couldn't be happier with Cajun Rebel whose genetic makeup is sure to spice things up in our Exclusive "Texas Stud Row" Breeding program for years to come, another coveted bloodline we proudly offer to our region as we watch him and his pasture mates mature into our "Texas Stud Row" lineup!
Rebel's Dam Carnelian is a multi Blue Ribbon winning dam, and his sire is the awesome, 8 time un-defeated Champion, 'AML's El Duro's Principio"! So suffice it to say we are extremely fortunate to have what we feel is one of Principio's best in our future Texas Stud Row lineup!
Already exhibiting superior fleece that is super crimpy, fine, and dense. Excellent coverage and luster along with outstanding conformation! We think you will agree he is very very special and everything we hoped for from this combination of elite bloodlines!
And with Carnelian's deep colored background, including black and gray, Rebel could one day throw some interesting colors, hopefully with beautiful fleece as he has.
