Snowfire is a wonderful combination of Peruvian (Accoyo) and Bolivian genetics that has produced impressive fleece characteristics that is certainly apparent in Snowfire's fleece. He is healthy and strong with fine, gorgeous, dense bundles of medium frequency, medium amplitude, fiber crimped all around his body, from skin to tip with a staple length that is the longest I have ever seen on a cria. His maternal grandsire needs no introduction since he is the famous Caligula. The positive fleece characteristics of the Acero Marka line on his paternal side are evident. His genetics certainly plays a part in the attributes he brings to the table. A nice disposition completes the package.
Although his typical shearing weight is over 10 pounds, Snowfire has not held his fineness. Therefore, we've decided to geld him. However, because of Snowfire's sweet disposition he is currently being used as a therapy animal through Pet Partners, Inc.
Everyone loves this boy. He is so tolerant of people touching him. The first day I took him to an assisted living facility, he let people hug him. Just love this sedate guy!
