A3's Peruvian Maxito

Our new male, replacement for Remington, is Maxito. He is a white, full peruvian and half accoyo huacaya. (sorry the pictures are a bit blurry, not the best cropping)

His dad, Senor Accoyo Pablo, has won several awards for his fiber. Pablo is a white full peruvian and full accoyo Huacaya. Maxito's grandsire, 6Peruvian Accoyo Tsunami, was a direct import from the accoyo herd by Pet Center in California. They call him "the super herdsire". His genetics are well known in west part of the country, but are rare for this area. His mom is 6 Peruvian Delta, a light fawn full peruvian huacaya.

We went to see him on Saturday. While it was raining and not the best circumstances to view fiber, we could definately see great crimp and brightness.

We plan to bring him to our farm after Sancha delivers. He will be in the barn/pasture with Snowstorm, meaning Maddie and Sommerfield will need to be moved in with the pregnant girls. We would like Sancha to have already had her cria, and for that cria to gain some strength before allowing Sommerfield back in that same pen. Sommerfield had been so attached to Sancha we worry she might not be nice to the new cria.
