Majestic Peruvian Carmela   


Light Fawn, 1411638, Full Peruvian


Carmela is a lovely fawn daughter of MFI Peruvian Jericho and Behold Peruvian Carmel Doll, a daughter of 5Peruvian Camelot. Bred to MFI Obsidian, Carmela produced a spectacular maroon female cria on August 31, 2007.

This September, Carmela delivered a truly sensational fawn male cria out of AML El Duro's Principio. We are really excited about this young macho. Watch for him in the show ring next Spring.

Before he even hit the ground, we knew that this little guy was special. His beautiful head was obvious from the moment it appeared, still in the sac. His sire is the undefeated AML El Duro's Principio and his dam is a lovely light fawn Jericho daugher. What genetics!

Grand Slam is extremely dense and fine with a silky handle which carries zipper crimp right to the tips. Check out his amazing fiber stats below. His square body type and strong bone are striking and he carries himself upright with great pride and attitude. He carries amazing density, shearing off 12 or 13 lbs. every year.

Grand Slam has been extremely successful in the show ring, bringing home 5 championship banners and 9 blue ribbons.

Grand Slam's crias range in color from light fawn to bay black with a rose gray thrown in for good measure. All of the crias have outstanding conformation and dense, bundling fleece.

Even at 10 years old, Grand Slam is a standout in the field. He carries his solid frame and classic head with pride, even a touch of arrogance. Yet he is easy to work with.
