Hummingherd Marco Polo's Cameo
White, 30663756, 7/8 Peruvian
Cameo is one of the denser Marco Polo daughters we've had, with the fineness and crimp characteristic of her sire. Marco's fleece is legendary; it won Reserve Champion and Mill's Choice at the 2004 AOBA Fleece Show. Cameo's dam Camille is pretty special too. She is dam of Mi Alma, two-time Reserve Champion at IAO and once at the Futurity, and she sold in the Parade of Champions auction for $57000. With Cameo's density and crimp she is literally one breeding away from producing a champion. She produced a white Perfection daughter first time out, and a very nice medium fawn Running Late son after that, with great density and crimp. We're rebreeding her to Running Late, since she's proved she can throw color.
We'd like to thank Magical Farms for allowing us to partner with them on this outstanding fawn male. I remember seeing his fleece at the IAO, and again at the Futurity, in 2003. He was Color Champion in both of those shows. He has a very fine, highly crimped and bundled fleece that has similar characteristics to Marco Polo's, our white fleece king. I personally examined all eight of his offspring in June 2006 and was impressed with the consistency of fineness and crimp that Running Late is throwing. His sire Titan is one of the most highly regarded herdsires in the country, and his dam Mona consistently records a very low CV and fineness. Alongside Crescent Moon's Romeo, Running Late now gives us a first-rate breeding program in fawn, separate from our white line. We look forward to seeing what he puts on the offspring of some of our champion fawn females. Running Late will be at Hummingherd August through November. Running Late's breedings are restricted. He is not available for d
Camero is a very handsome son of Running Late and a Marco Polo (Microsoft son) daughter out of a Camilio daughter out of a Hemingway daughter. He is extremely fine (AFD 14.2), with his dam's excellent density, brightness and crimp. The combination of Camero's fineness and consistency (SD 3.4) is a prime example of what we're breeding for. Camero's head is very attractive, with good coverage and darkly lined eyes. He got a ribbon at NWAS as a young juvenile, but as a yearling he's already scored with a first place and Reserve Championship at SWRAS. Camero has just begun to make his mark.
