Thistledown's Shaun Knightrider
Shaun is the full Peruvian fawn / recessive black son of Goldie, a white female whose fleece placed second at the AOBA Nationals, and our Champion true black herdsire, Peruvian Knightrider. Shaun has soft-handled, crimpy fiber and the most beautiful face. Both his parents have excellent conformation and coverage and with a black sire and two black grandparents he has potential to produce black and grey offspring. His award-winning maternal half-brother Magnus and his maroon paternal half-brother, Octavius, will remain in our herd, which is why Shaun and his dam Goldie are currently available for sale.

Awards: Too young to show until Fall 2008.

Dam, Goldie 
Goldie is a full Peruvian light fawn female, who has proven her ability to produce quality color with her first cria; a dark fawn / recessive black female. Goldie has crimp, fineness, good density and handle, and beautiful consistency to her fleece, which earned her the second place ribbon in a very competitive AOBA Nationals fleece show. A great mother and milker, Goldie also has a perfect bite, solid conformation and a gorgeous head and top knot. 

Goldie's awards: She won second place in a class of 9 alpacas at the 2003 AOBA National fleece show, placing ahead of a Snowmass animal, and beaten only by one of Magical Farms' finest!
