Twister is a truly magnificent male! He has a fabulously friendly disposition and passes that along to his cria.

Check out his histogram and prior fiber numbers. He maintains consistent fleece characteristics despite his age.

If you want tiny, twisted, consistent, independent ropes of fiber dripping with luster on your crias, you'll want Martinie with a Twist. Twister's long, drapey, pencilled, independent locks and blinding luster can't help but impress everyone that lays eyes on him, including the judges.

By breeding to Twister, you can have this successful bloodline: his dam produces showring suri's every time (including Martinie's Raggedy Anne, 2003 AOBA and OABA Grand Champion, and now another sister, Tiara (Reserve Champion at 2005 MIAF). His father is Ben's Boy, Futurity Grand Champion and son of 1/2 Accoyo Cortez, Grandson of Pperuvian Uribe!
