|Thistledown's Boadicca Nikos|
jet black daughter of our 3X Champion dark silver grey male Nikos, and a multiple award-winning true black
dam, is named after Boadicca, the Celtic warrior Queen
who defeated the Romans in Britain, and whose name means victory. Boadicca
is exactly what we are breeding for in black - solid, non-fading and true.
She is so black it is difficult to make out any features on her at all! Her fiber
is dense and curly with handle like velvet. Her dam is Lakisha, daughter
of the 5X Champion brown male, CPeruvian LB Remington. Lakisha has beautiful,
square, heavy-boned conformation and excellent fiber density - her
show-skirted, juvenile blanket had an annualized shearing weight of over 4lbs. Boadicca's sire is our
half-Accoyo grey male, Nikos, whose 30 month shearing was awarded 20/20
points for fineness and hand by Diana Timmerman when he won Reserve
Champion grey fleece at MAPACA 2006. A grandson of Accoyo Felix and Accoyo
Yupanqui, Nikos also won the halter Championship out of 33 grey males at
the 2005 Virginia Classic, a blue ribbon in halter at MAPACA 2005 under
Julio Sumar, and Best Multi/Grey fiber in show at the huge OABA Spinoff.
He holds fineness over time and offers excellent quality in colored
Awards: Too young to show until Fall 2008.
