Daughter of the great Peruvian Don Claro, Clara is half-Peruvian and half-Bolivian. A reliable producer of quality offspring, she consistently passes along her extreme density and crimp and is mother to three females and two males, all with gorgeously dense fiber. Her first daughter, Vela, took third in the 2000 National Handcrafter’s SpinOff for her white fleece in a very competitive class. At MaPaca 2003, her multicolor daughter Fiona took a blue ribbon in composite and her bay black grandson placed first in yearling halter. Clara’s exotic coloring – rich red/ brown blanket fiber splashed with white on her chest, neck and face - makes her a real herd stand-out. She has inherited her sire’s awesome presence and when bred to solid males, produces solid colored offspring, including her latest cria Donovan, a solid maroon. In addition to these highly desirable traits, Clara is intelligent, wonderfully calm and alert and the undisputed matriarch of our herd.

Clara, the day before her due date in May 2003.
In 2003, Clara produced a 21.5lb maroon cria, Donovan, out of Romeo, our award-winning solid maroon herdsire. Romeo is downright gorgeous - he is the rare color of maroon with black points, has excellent conformation, beautiful crimp all over his body, great staple length and a handle to die for! His coverage is fantastic, his bloodlines are extremely rare, particularly on the east coast and he has a beautiful head, which he holds up proudly. Romeo inherited his magnificent maroon coloring and presence from his dam, a Chilean import, and fine, soft fiber with intense sheen from his sire, Acero Marka's Evarado, a black Bolivian import whose offspring are consistent show winners.

Romeo's awards: Maggie Krieger placed Romeo's fleece second in the 6-12 month dark category at the EVAA show in 2001. He was awarded a second place ribbon out of all the shorn adult males at the 2002 MaPaca Jubilee by Carolyn Blalock, with over 1100 entries in the show.

Clara is a proven producer of award winning offspring and a daughter of Peruvian Don Claro, one of the best known herdsires to be imported from Peru. Her dam is a true black Bolivian import, so she also carries dark color genetics.

Clara is dam and granddam to many award winners. Her daughter Vela placed third nationally for her fiber in the intensely competitive white class of the 2000 HandCrafters Spinoff, which is quite an achievement considering that Clara is a pinto out of a black dam. Clara's bay black grandson, Jolly Jack Tar, won a national award for his fiber in 2002 plus a blue ribbon in halter at MaPaca 2003. Fiona, her 3/4 Peruvian daughter sired by Black Jack Jax, is a gorgeous multi-color (DB/TB/W), who also won a blue ribbon in the composite class at MaPaca 2003.
