Sirius Black daughter

BESAME Sirius' Tingilindë - PENDING SALE

ARI# 31476805   D.O.B. 4/2/2009  (9 yrs)

Suri, Female, Proven | Light Fawn

3/4 Peruvian, 1/4 Bolivian
Sire: Sierra Bonita's Sirius Black | ARI# 1035124  | True Black |
Dam: ATV Empressa | ARI# 20022723  | Dark Fawn 

What a beautiful, healthy cria Tingilindë ("twinkling star") was. As a young cria, Lindy gained more than half a pound a day with an IgG of over 2400. At six months old, she was over 90 pounds, and covered in tight, twisted locks with excellent luster and good density. Her light fawn locks are independent and she carries good leg coverage and a nicely typey topknot and beard.

Lindy's sire is Sierra Bonita's Sirius Black, one of the nicest black suris we've ever seen. Her dam Empressa is one of our top producers, combining Accoyo genetics with the best of the Acero Marka Bolivians. Lindy took the blue as a juvenile at Empire in 2009, with the judge giving her the edge over a slightly denser animal due to her excellent luster. He also noted her strong conformation, uniform and consistent locking and pleasing handle. We were certainly pleased, especially since Lindy repeated with another blue at Green Mountain. Lindy continued to show well in 2010, placing second at MAPACA and fourth at the Buckeye against very strong females.

Lindy is now a mother, delivering her first cria, a 15.7 pound, light brown male at day 344 with no fuss or drama. She immediately showed the great mothering instincts inherited from her dam, standing like a rock for her cria to nurse. Úri grew like a weed and Lindy had abundant milk and plenty of patience with her spitfire offspring. Lindy next delivered a strong, healthy (fast!) white, female cria on July 22, 2012. Tâd was a vigorous, fast growing young lady with excellent fiber, and Lindy was once again a great mom. We held Lindy and our other July moms open to rebreed in 2013, and Lindy was rebred to Payday in the hope of creating another cria as lovely as Tâd in 2014 - and she followed through with BESAME Elenna, a beautiful white female. 2017's cria may be the best yet - in color a carbon copy of her mother, with outstanding lock and luster.

Lindy sells with a complimentary breeding that can be used for her or any of your wholly owned females.
