STIRLING RIDGE DIOMEDES' McTAVISH              
ARI 31949392       DOB 9/19/09


McTavish's lineage boasts the very same sire (Accoyo America Diomedes from Hemingway lines) and dam (Kenzie, sired by Onyx de Mico [bay black] from Michelangelo/Guellermo lines) as his big brother DIRK (see above). He is following in his big brother's steps:

2010: 16.8   3.5   20.6   100% CF, 115 mm, sheared 4 lbs.    (8 mo)
2011: 20.7   3.7   17.9    98.2 CF, 115mm,  sheared 6.4 lbs. (2 yrs)
2012: 20.5   3.6   17.5    98.6 CF, 110 mm, curve 41.6         (3 yrs)

McTav took a first place in the NW Alpaca Showcase Spinoff 2012.
Comments: "Almost a 5" staple; 10/10 for fineness, ease of preparation for spinning, and uniformity; 
5/5 for hand, loft, brightness, and crimp (which was very uniform)."

Snow Legend is a Peruvian Snowmaster grandson and an Snowmass Incaaccoyo Star (I-Star) son.
Snowmaster genetics are rare since he was sent to Australia, then re-imported into Peru, one of the only U.S.-born herdsires back in Peru that we know of. His son, Incaccoyo Star (I-star) is now co-owned by Cas-cad-nac Farms and Tripping Gnome on the East coast. Here's what they say: "I-Star is one of the few full-blooded ACCOYO males to come out of his amazing sire [Snowmaster]. He has all the fiber density, crimp, and fineness one would expect of his lineage. His first crop of offspring were dominant in the showring in 2003, winning several blue ribbons and championships across a range of colors and his subsequent cria have proven that was no fluke."  We have personally checked out the next generation in Snow Legend and are pleased with his fiber character and fineness (especially at 7 years!), lack of guard hair, conformation, wide chest and hindquarters, head, and bite, and are eager to get breedings from him.
