UPDATE: Isilmë's last cria, Coll, just won first place and highest scoring in white spinoff, as well as first place and highest scoring light in cottage fleece at the Suri Symposium All Suri Fleece Show. He had a phenomenal score of 87.375, and was awarded 18/20 for luster by none other than Cheryl Gehly. Isilmë makes beautiful babies! Oh, and almost forgot to mention - the highest scoring dark at the All Suri Fleece Show is her granddaughter (Kementári out of Ára).

Isilmë ("moonlight" in Tolkien's elven language Quenya) weighed 22 pounds at birth with an IgG of over 3000, and at a year old tipped the scales at over 130 pounds. She is a strong, rangy girl with good conformation. She is easy to handle even as a breeding female, with a curious and calm demeanor. Isilmë is pure white with pink skin, with very nice luster, good coverage and independent, drapey locks. Her regrowth is excellent. She needs some density, but a careful breeding adds this to her crias.

Isilmë placed third in her yearling class at North American, where she won praise for her size, strength and good regrowth. After experiencing the show ring, she was ready to move on to motherhood, and was bred to our 3/4 Accoyo herdsire, WRSR Peruvian Payday. She took on her first breeding and delivered a 21 pound female with no assistance, and was an excellent, protective mother with very abundant milk. Baby Pica gained a quarter of a pound her first night and was running right from the get go. Isilmë next delivered a 23 pound dark fawn girl by our Doc Holliday, who is an absolute stunner - Ára is just gorgeous. Isilmë's 2013 cria is full Peruvian, by Young Princeton, and she's another beauty. In 2014, Isilmë delivered a gorgeous white male. Three girls means that Isilmë's genetics are well represented here - and she is ready to produce more beautiful babies for another program.

Even after four cria, Isilmë is producing wonderful fiber under 23 micron.

Isilmë sells with a complimentary breeding that can be used for her or any of your wholly owned females. Buy her now at auction and leave her here until she is bred for a fall cria.
