He was regal to his last day.

Breeders describe their Constantino line as their very best...PRODUCERS!!! 15 years ago the judges called him the "future of the industry" and they were right.

In 2016 two of his juvie sons, Bonafide (LB) and Travelin' Man (BB), earned 1st FFH in very competitive classes.

Tino's show career lasted 5 years and he successfully competed with the best in the country. His fleece st...

Top producer.

Journie ribboned in every show she was entered. A judge described her fleece as highly advanced for a grey and another commented on her brightness and long staple length. She is healthy with correct conformation, bite and proportions from her nose to her toes as well as a lovely, uniformly fine (low SD) and bright fleece. She has one of the most typey heads you'll find on a gray and a people friendly disposition.

Her sire is 7x champion Peruvian Black Epic who is considered ...

Spring 2019 Update - I sheared the herd myself this year and this male's fleece is still fabulous...fine, dense, bright, crimpy and long. I used a 20 tooth comb and...botched it...the fleece laid down and....second cuts all over the place, so probably won't be entering it in any fleece shows. Black from Peruvian Black Epic and Hannaruh (famous gray dam) lines and our "Future of the Industry" Constantino. This male is prepotent, contains no Accoyo lines and is looking better every year. We're going to start his breeding career this year!

His first show: 2016 CABA - 1st place, very competitive class of 8; judge Arturo Pena. Peers in the class were sired by: Snowmass Sizlin Rose, Crescent Moon's Propel, .38 Midnight Special, Patagonia's Antonio, TAG Peruvian Bellagio and Rumm Runner.

The very humid weather of the Pacific northwest kept "Trekker" with his silky fine fleece from going to the shows earlier in the year. Fortunately the weather for the CABA '16 show was just right and his fleece was showing its true characteristics that weekend.

Fleece was described as "exquisite" by our good friend Lona Frank of ATV.

Trekker's sire is our 17 YEAR OLD home-bred "FUTURE OF THE INDUSTRY" champion, CONSTANTINO. His 9 year old gray dam is our Black Epic's Journie. He hails from the bloodlines of P. Andrajo, Lanarks' Locota, 4P Black Magic, Aussie Rockford, Hannahruh. It was Tino and Journie's first mating and they nicked really well.

Trekker's blanket fleece is very silky with high brightness, deep black color, highly crimped, very long and very uniformly fine with excellent drape and handle and has no medullation. It's the perfect fleece type needed for high quality worsted fabric. We'll be saving his first few fleeces to make into yarn. While he could be a little more dense that would likely shorten his amazing staple length. His unskirted cria blanket weighs 2 1/4 lbs., the same as his LF sire's cria fleece weight. He is unrelated to Hemingway and all Accoyo lines except Felix (Aussie Rockford).

"Trekker" also has spot-on conformation and proportions, correct phenotype and presence with complete coverage. He has an agreeable disposition and a strong libido when it comes to the females. Halter training him took no effort.

We will be making him available for limited outside breedings in 2017!
