Dominique is a true quality dam, it would be nice to have a whole herd of females like her, conformtation, density, character in the fleece and check out these fiber stats at 4 years old. AFD-20.2, SD-4.8, CV 23.6, >30 microns-3.7
Tell Hot Shot
Dark Rose Grey, 810888, Peruvian
A Rare Rose Grey Champion. He is a solid, compact male with heavy bone structure. His fleece has high luster, bold crimp and extreme density.
Our search for Celestia began when we became enamored with Tell Hot Shot, a super Canadian stud bred and shown by Judge Jane Tellier. Not only were we fascinated with his conformation, fiber, and color, we found that Hot Shot also carried the same appaloosa gene that had been passed down by his equally well-known sire, NGG Lional.
On the male side of the family, Celestia has Tell Hot Shot as her father, NGG Lional as her grandfather, and Peruvian Bueno as her great grandfather. On the dam's side is her wonderfully fibered mom, Tell Dominique. Dominque's sire is Victor's Vaccoyo. Here is a quote from Vaccoyo's owners, the Fellers of Sunset Hills Farm: "VICTOR VACCOYO is a full Accoyo macho who consistently transmits his phenomenal fleece characteristics of deep bold crimp and extreme density to his offspring. He is a renowned sire of Show Ring Champions, both in the United States and Canada. The son of PPeruvian Victor, this male is probably one of the best Victor son's now available for stud in the US"
In the spring of 2006, Victor's Vaccoyo was selected to be in the IAO Elite Herdsire Services Auction. His breeding sold for a well-deserved six thousand, five hundred dollars.
Due to a missing microchip, Celestia was unable to cross the Canadian border in April '06 so she remained at Sunnyhill Farm where she was bred to Pokemon Brew.
Update: On May 12, 2008, Celestia produced a medium fawn female cria, sired by Derwydd Peruvian Novio. She is now being bred to rose grey Avatar's Avery, a son of the well-known herdsire, Avatar, of the Delphi herd.
Update: In late May 2008, Celestia suffered a horrible break to a back leg. After four weeks of having an external fixator, the leg was still not healing and had to be amputated. In May 2009, Celestia delivered a fantastic looking rose grey cria, Enchanted Hill Gift, & raised this cria well.
