A daughter of the rose grey Checkoff and a maroon dam from the '98 import, Paradigm is a very beautiful dark rose grey female. Her sire Checkoff, a son of the famous Majestado of Peru, has all the characteristics of a quality herdsire - strong bone, incredible presence, excellent conformation and coverage from head to toe. Checkoff has absolutely amazing fiber, with excellent uniformity and fineness, incredible density and a consistent bold crimp. Paradigm's dam, Paraguari, is a top quality production female with excellent mothering abilities, who has maintained a fine fleece, with excellent uniformity and luster  - her fiber was still being shown when she was 6 years old, and still winning over full Peruvian fleeces! Paradigm has fine fiber, with beautiful handle, excellent staple length and a bold crimp. Her bone structure is substantial, her conformation balanced, and she has great coverage. Paradigm was bred with the silver grey Champion Ben MacDhui in Spring 2008. 

Awards: Paradigm placed second at the 2005 Southern Select, in a competitive full fleece halter class judged by Shannon McConnell. Paradigm placed 4th in a large class at the 2005 Kentucky Classic, judged by Julio Sumar. Her juvenile fiber  placed first at National Level, in the 2005 AOBA Fiber to Fashion HandCrafter's SpinOff competition, in a combined grey/multi class, where she scored 91 points out of a possible 100! Paradigm's yearling fleece was awarded a red ribbon by Kristin Buhrmann at MaPaca 2005, in competition with light and medium rose grey fleeces.

Paradigm brings quality, and rare, diverse maroon and rose grey genetics to our herd. Her dam is a maroon Chilean import and such an outstanding mother that she successfully raised an orphaned cria alongside one of her own offspring. Paradigm's rose grey sire is the son of a maroon imported dam and the medium fawn Peruvian Majestado of Peru, who was imported in utero. 

We plan to show Paradigm, before she is bred with King Crimson, a full Peruvian true maroon son of 5Peruvian Camelot and CPeruvian Dahna, both true maroon Peruvian imports.
