Amalia is full Peruvian, half Sollocatta, half Alianza, and she & K-2 'criated' a wonderful herdsire for us, HHF Katmandeux, who has just settled his first female. He placed at the '05 Empire white yearling male class, hands down, one of the toughest classes to be in let alone place in. We even heard the owner of the white color champion commented from the sidelines he liked Katman the best in his class.Amalia's second cria, is a gorgeous beige female (yeah!) by 6Peruvian Accoyo Powerball. Amalia has also produced a wonderful female for us (for sale, see AD Amazing Grace) as well as an awesome young beige half Accoyo male who is a full brother to 'Amy' above (see AD Solar Power). She is currently bred to our co-owned 3/4 Accoyo El Nino son, Pacific Crest Da Vinci and is due fall '07. This cria should be a knock out!
Here is a true gentleman with the utmost in presence! "PB" has one of the finest heads, a feature he passes on to his offspring, known to those of us who have them as "Powerheads." Fineness is a hallmark of the cria sired by this rare Select "B" Line Accoyo Herdsire. He has what you would expect from a Don Julio Barreda-selected Estancia Accoyo herdsire: wonderful bone, good size, shears ten pounds skirted yearly, awesome conformation and bite, and he maintained a sub-20 micron count until he was six years old! Handle, crimp, luster -- it's all there. Proof that Powerball is getting results is the high percentage of re-breedings we saw in 2005, and it was a joy to have the PB kids come to visit with their moms, too. They all have trademark Powerheads, an abundance of typeyness, the finest and brightest bundly fiber, sweet natures, excellent bone, strong conformation and extreme vigor. One other intangible in breeding to PB is DISPOSITION -- there is a sweetness factor in this
Shearing Weight 2006: 6.1 pounds in just 10 months' growth! 2007: 7.6 pounds!
'Amy' produced her second cria 9/25/08 (Nickelodeon, sold), a breathtaking dark fawn male by Black Magic son, SA Peruvian Nikolai. Amy's '07 cria, Adonis, is a light fawn by our own 3/4 Accoyo Pacific Crest Da Vinci, and he produced 10 pounds of fleece off his yearling clip (sold)! Amy settled in one shot for both breedings and delivered both independently. She's a great mom who put a great IgG on her cria too! In 2011 she produced another fabulous male, this time by El Segundo De Royal Fawn, again, unassisted and she produced tons of milk.
Here is one awesome production female: beige half Accoyo who produces color, easy breeder, independent birther, great milker, great mom, just what every farm needs! We will include two free drive by breedings to your choice of our herdsires, making her a fantastic deal! Remember, we finance our breeding stock, so she can be yours for just $2000 down and balance over 2 years!
