Buttercup has been an incredible producer for us, with 4 outstanding females as her offspring. At seven years of age, she retains a fine fiber with good staple and density. Although she is white, her mother was brown. Buttercup has thrown white, brown, and light fawn. She's friendly, mellow, and an easy keeper. Let her add quality and color to your herd.
Augustus is out of the Accoyo lineage through his sire Peruvian Caligula. He was born March 12, 1998 and has been outstanding at stud, with his offspring each taking the color of their dams, but displaying the Accoyo "look". They share his outstanding conformation, along with the density, coverage and staple length of Augustus who shears over 10 lbs annually. Since he is new to our farm, we look forward to seeing his cria from our females starting in June of 2006.

Ruby is a Caligula grandaughter via her sire, Augustus. She has dense white fiber with a fawn patch on her upper neck. All of her cria have been solid colored; a medium fawn, a light fawn & 2 whites.
Ruby's first cria unfortunately passed soon after a rough dystocia. Her 2007 cria was out of Celestine Ridge's stellar boy, Mordechai. She was a beauty and sold easily as a yearling. Ruby's 2009 cria was via my 1/2 Accoyo, multi blue ribbon winner, MSF Tyson. Glacial Storm + Caligula lines...nice combination..and they created a light fawn, male cria who sold as a 2 year old. Ruby was held open until the spring of 2010, then bred to my Pachacuti son, Canso. In May of 2011, she flawlessly delivered a white male cria. He was beautiful and sold easily as a 7 month old. Ruby was then exposed to Maestro, my new & fabulous 1/2 Accoyo, 1/2 Bolivian herdsire. FINALLY, another girl! The spitting image of her sire, a 15 lbs white female cria was born on 6/5/12.
Ruby was bred to Beechcomber in April, in hopes of an early April 2015 cria. Weekly behavior tests have so far all been strongly positive for implantation/pregnancy. Ruby may be ten, but you should be able to get at least another 2-3 cria from her. Your investment will be returned easily.
