This gorgeous, leggy full-Peruvian, half-accoyo medium fawn darling looks really showy. She has an amazing luster to her curly crimpy fiber. She is out of a grey dam and is a Nic Nac graddaughter and Black Magic great granddaughter. She seems to have gotten the best of all worlds. She has Black Magic's luster and Accoyo Express's soft dense crimpy fiber. Her fiber must be seen to be believed! Carousel has placed first and second in her first 2 shows (before and after the same Magical Farms animal), and just got her first color championship this fall in a large class! She will be bred full accoyo late this fall. That cria will be fantastic!
Update: During shearing this year, 2006, Mark L was shearing Carousel and stopped the shearing operations to comment on the beauty of her fleece, and to insist we save it for show. So we did!
Carousel sheared 9 pounds in April of 2006, and we left leg coverage on her.
Update: On October 8, Carousel delivered a dark fawn
Marathon's crias are now on the ground, and they are gorgeous! He has 15 crias so far, and all are awesome, and as of November, 2009, Irish Meadows has a new half sister of Golden Girl, and she is jet black, and sired by Marathon! Marathon has thrown a solid, spot free, jet black female cria!
EIGHT TIME CHAMPION, as of April, 2008. All in Halter, Full Fleece. FULL ACCOYO MEDIUM FAWN!
Marathon is one of a kind - this full Accoyo medium fawn male has "a next generation elite fleece," perfect head, bite and conformation. His fleece has a very high-amplitude crimp, is extremely bright, and well-bundled, with a long-staple length. Genetically, he is a fusion of Accoyo sires Caligula, Camilio and Auzengate (Australia). He has placed as Reserve or Color Champion in the first 8 out of 10 shows in his career, with 4 of the banners earned as a juvenile, all with blue ribbon wins.
He placed as Reserve Color Champion at the OABA Alpacafest, Nov. 2007 with a shear date
Irish Meadows P Sister Golden Hair ( 7 X Champion)
7 time champion, including judges choice! Will be updated soon!
Already a 6 time blue ribbon winner (out of 6 showings, a Color Champion and a 3 time Reserve Color Champion, all as a juvi, this girl is something special!
So you are wondering why the name......Javelin's dam Carousel was due during the Futurity show this year. During the long ride to OK City, an oldies station played America's big hit, Sister Golden Hair, several times. That song is a favorite, so I vowed that if Carousel had a girl, she would be named Sister Golden Hair. Appropriate for a fawn, don't you think? And the cria was both fawn and female! She arrived on the Saturday of the Futurity, so timing was everything.
This little girl has big shoes to fill. Her golden hair might be like her big brother, Javelin, a 15 time champion male now breeding. Or she might be like big brother Renegade, a 6 time champion during last show season. Either way, we say that she will for sure be a multiple champion. No doubt about it! And did we mention her sire is an 8 time champion?
We can't wait to see her paired with Knight Rider, down the road. 15 time champion Knight Rider is black, and with her grand dam being a dark silver grey, the possibilities are endless. But the quality will be stellar. Sister Golden Hair's muzzle is black. A black or grey cria from her is the goal.
Sister Golden Hair has a spot in our foundation herd for as long as she wishes.
If the right farm comes along, we may decide to part with her.
