DSF Iris
Iris is the brown / recessive black daughter of the Champion rose grey, McGinnis, who sired both the grey Color Champion female at the 2004 AOBA Nationals, and the 2005 grey Futurity Champion female, who went on to sell in the Futurity auction for $80,000! McGinnis has excellent, soft, crimpy rose grey fiber and a reputation for producing quality offspring.

Iris is a very attractive female, with soft-handled crimpy fiber, wonderful staple length, and good coverage. She is very balanced, with straight legs, lovely overall conformation and a perfect bite. She inherits her even, rich, brown coloring from her 3/4 Peruvian dam, and has excellent potential to throw quality black and grey. We actually prefer to breed our grey males to solid, dark-colored females with a grey heritage, to produce grey and black offspring. Iris should grow up to be an important asset in any breeding program, and as we watch her develop, we are leaning towards keeping her for ours! Iris produced a beautiful true black son from her breeding with our silver grey Champion, Ben MacDhui, and was bred with our 3X Champion dark silver grey, PV Nikos for her Fall 2009 cria.

Awards: Iris placed second at her first show, in the juvenile dark composite class at MAPACA in 2007. Kevin O'Leary judged her conformation in the showring, and her fleece was judged by Wade Gease. Her fleece went on to win a blue ribbon in the 2007 PAOBA fleece show, a second place in the 2007 LA Deep South Spinoff competition, a second place in the prestigious 2008 National Fiber to Fashion Spinoff and a blue ribbon in the 2008 LA Deep South Spinoff competition. In 2009, her fiber won a first place in the extremely competitive MAPACA Spinoff - our two girls. Iris and Brigit, placed first and second out of all the male and female entries in their class!

Iris leaping, April 2007!
Iris is the daughter of the Champion rose grey McGinnis. His dam is a daughter of PPPeruvian Augusto and a granddaughter of Peruvian Hemingway, and McGinnis is a son of the medium rose grey Quincy. McGinnis's fiber is very fine and crimpy, with wonderful handle. He also has excellent conformation and a very typey huacaya head. He is the proud sire of both the grey Color Champion female at the 2004 AOBA Nationals and the 2005 grey Futurity Champion female.

McGinnis's awards: AOBA 2002, first place rose grey yearling male halter class, and first place Fiber Spin-Off (judge's comments, "beautiful" and "a pleasure to spin"). PAOBA 2002, first place grey yearling male halter, Reserve Champion Grey Color Class. 2004 PAOBA 2nd place Get of Sire, beaten only by a white accoyo male! 


Sire, McGinnis

Iris as a cria
In 2007, Iris is scheduled to breed with one of our Champion colored males. We are leaning towards breeding her with PV Nikos, our half-accoyo dark silver grey male, who won the Grand Championship at the 2005 Virginia Classic, a blue ribbon at MAPACA 2005 under Julio Sumar, and Reserve Champion grey fleece at MAPACA under Diana Timmerman, who awarded his 30 month shearing 20/20 for fineness and handle. Nikos is not available for outside breedings and is a grandson of Accoyo Felix and Accoyo Yupanqui (deceased). Other wonderful breeding options include our black full Peruvian Champion, Peruvian Knightrider, who has sired numerous grey and black offspring, or our blue ribbon-winning white full Peruvian herdsire, Tundra, who is a son of Peruvian Presidio.
