Hand selected by Magical Farms at the 1997 Peruvian import. Campanilla has produced a colorful range of crias having been bred to males of various colors. But, each time she was bred to a grey male, she produced a grey cria!
Peruvian Silvio is an extremely dense silver grey Peruvian male with flawless conformation. He has a solid, silver-grey blanket with black skin and a white tuxedo. He does not have fawn or any other colors on his body. His crias have excellent fleeces and conformation with a proud, upright carriage. Silvio is one of the most consistent producers of grey/black crias.
Carlina is a statuesque, full Peruvian medium silver gray female with outstanding conformation and exceptional fleece. Her fleece has pronounced tight crimp, is very fine and has wonderful density. Carlina is out of 5Peruvian Capanilla, a bay black female hand-selected at the 1997 Peruvian import, and CPeruvian Silvio, an outstanding herd sire known for his quality colored offspring.
At her very first show, the 2006 Breeder's Choice Futurity, Carlina took a Blue Ribbon. She then finished off her short, but very rewarding show career with a Blue Ribbon and Color Championship at the 2006 Green Mountain Fall Spectacular (an AOBA Level IV show).
Carlina was bred to an exceptional herd sire, 6Peruvian Don Timbo, a stunning silver gray male who was the first selection from that year's import. That combination rewarded us with a gorgeous silver gray female, Carlina's Peruvian Bonita Rosa and Bonita, with her dense, crimpy & soft fleece, has already excelled in the show ring placing always in the top half of the winning line up.
We actually bought Carlina to breed to our Multiple Color Champion grey, Navigator and have done so. This pairing gave us an incredible, true black male (Navigator's Commodore) that has done us proud already in the 2009 show rings!
Decisions, decisions! Carlina comes off our list should her female cria, Bonita Rosa, sell first. And, we will definitely retain breedings to Commodore should he be sold.
