Thistledown's Callum Silvermist
Callum is the rare, true maroon son of two award-winning parents. He is a solid, rich, burgundy color with true black points and no visible white spots. His dam, Misty, is our magnificent gentle giant of a girl, who won a blue ribbon and Reserve Championship the first time she was ever shown. She has soft, dense, fine, silver grey fiber with fabulous staple length, plus outstanding heavy-boned typey conformation. Her presence is majestic and her coverage extreme. Romeo is our solid maroon award-winning herdsire, who has excellent conformation and soft, crimpy fiber with the most unique, almost purple, coloration. Romeo also has excellent staple length and handle and is proven to produce quality color, including a MaPaca blue ribbon-winning black son. Callum has two black grandparents, one maroon and one silver grey, so he has excellent potential to produce top quality black, maroon, rose grey or silver grey, and his fiber just feels like silk. 

Awards: Too young to show until Fall 2006.

Sire, Romeo
Callum is already displaying the poise and regal presence of his magnificent silver grey dam, Misty. His conformation is straight and strong, with seriously heavy bone, and he is growing like a weed. He has clearly inherited the soft handle of both of his parents - this young man is a herdsire prospect for sure! 

Misty's awards: At 2 years of age, in her first ever showring appearance, the majestic Misty placed first in her age group, and went on to become Reserve Champion of all the mixed multicolor and grey female huacayas at the 2004 VA Classic Show. Nard Mullen awarded Misty a third place for her fleece in 2002 at the highly competitive EVAA show, only 2 points behind the first place winner.

Dam, Misty

Romeo's Awards: Maggie Krieger placed Romeo's fleece second in the 6-12 month dark category at the highly competitive EVAA show in 2001. He was awarded a second place ribbon out of all the shorn males at the 2002 MaPaca Jubilee by Carolyn Blalock, with over 1100 entries in the show. His black son, Logan, won two blue ribbons in two show appearances in 2004 - one at MaPaca, the largest show in the US!
