Fawna is a fabulous fawn female that would play an important role in any farm's foundation herd. Her fleece style is highly desirable; displaying the tight, "zipper" crimp throughout. Combined with her fineness, velvet-like handle, and eye-opening luster, Fawna had an impressive show career winning a Championship, Reserve, two 1st Places, and a 2nd place.
A strong lineage is essential for a foundation female, and Fawna's can't get much better. Her sire MFI Peruvian Donovan is making quite the name for himself and is rapidly becoming one of Magical Farm's premier fawn herdsires. His six-year-old fleece won 1st Place and Color Champion at the AOBA National Fleece show in 2004. Fawna's grandsire on her sire's sire is Accoyo Augusto, who sold for a record-breaking $226,000 at auction in 2000. Her grandsire on her dam's side is Accoyo Dracula, known for producing dense high frequency fleeces. With this lineage, Fawna is full Peruvian and half-accoyo. <
4-time AOBA Blue Ribbon winner & AOBA Champion, SCA Peruvian Magnum, is one awesome macho. He has performed well in the showring, and with his offspring. With only 14 offspring on the ground, he has won a Get of Sire title, and he already has a son & a daughter who are also AOBA Champions! His cria range from white to true black.
Magnum is the son of "Dam of the Century" Misty Maiden, whose fiber stats at age 14 were AFD 20.3 SD 3.7 CV 18.2 %>30 1.8! Misty Maiden's descendants have won at least 60 championships. He is sired by Peruvian Camelot.
Magnum's skin follicles were tested at age 5. The results from Dr. Evans stated, "Magnum is definitely in the top 1% of males that I have tested. His density is 78.75 follicles per Sq MM of skin and 5 very symmetrical fiber bundles show an S/P OF 14.6 TO 1. The 15X scan as well as the S/P scan shows super bundle structure and the 250X scan demonstrates awesome gland presence. This guy appears to be the whole package." In the
Our vet declared that this was one "fully cooked" baby! Buttercup, named after the princess heroine in the movie, "Princess Bride", was a joyous sight when she arrived. She was standing in 15 minutes and within an hour was literally nursing, bouncing and running. She's basically been a lovable "little" spitfire since she was born. Buttercup is always curious and friendly and loves to have her neck scratched. In the evening when the kids are let out to pasture Buttercup is the first one to lead the girls through the obstacle course chase, darting from barn to paddock to pasture. She is entertained by, Scooter, our 6-month old kitten who likes to walk on the fence rails like a balance beam.
As a Misty Maiden grandaughter through her highly decorated sire Peruvian Magnum, we're a tad bit excited about Buttercup's prospects! Her fleece exhibits character and crimp and is silky, silky soft. She has excellent posture and confirmation. In all, this girl is full of all the promising attributes one would hope to see in a show girl.
January update....almost four months of age, this girl will not stop eating and growing! Buttercup is just the sweetest, most playful girl. We call her "Butter" for short. One thing for sure, she loves her Mazuri treat, morning and night. Her fleece really is bright and brilliant. Very fine with lots of character.
