Nelly is a stunning cria, combining the Ramilo and Baccarat Accoyo bloodlines through her grandsires. Ramilo should need no introduction to serious suri breeders - his offspring have won more Get of Sire ribbons than those of any other sire. Baccarat is not as well known, but his offspring are noted for lingering fineness and extreme luster. Nelly's histogram at 11 months reported an AFD of 18.79µ and an SD of 3.95 yielding a CV of 21.02. We're very pleased with those numbers.

Nelly is well locked and very lustrous with good density, and has a feminine grace to her that earned her her name, which means "Swan Princess." She is growing well and is super sweet. She is very curious about people and doesn't mind attention, which is good, because we love her fiber! So did the judge at NAAS - she commented very favorably on Nelly's bright luster and independence of lock when awarding her the blue. Nelly then placed sixth in a tough class of ten at MAPACA - the judge noted that she was one of the finest and most lustrous in the class.

Nelly's excellent luster and fineness should make her a great breeding female, particularly if paired with a male that will add additional density to the resulting cria. She should cover brown genetics, as both parents cover brown. Her sweet temperament is an added bonus.
