Orchid has perfect confirmation & gorgeous, crimpy, white fleece, making her the perfect fiber animal! Named after the Fairmont Orchid hotel we were staying at during her birth, Orchid has a docile, sweet, and curious temperament.

She is sired by Accoyo Snowmass Snow Legend -- one of the finest studs in the nation, who had a cashmere-like fleece of 14.4 micron count in 2004 and has retained his lingering fineness since!! Even more exciting than that, is that Legend is a male full of attitude, presence & great conformation. Just looking at him makes you go WOW. He represents the greatness of his sire & grandsire, with an additional brightness, luster & highly expressive crimp making an unbelievable fleece on this true Champion. Snowmaster & Snowmass IncaAccoyo Star passed all this onto Legend, plus a great disposition!

Orchid's dam-Angelique de Llabe (daughter of well-known Gray producer The Colorado - Pisarata) is a Light Rose Gray Appalousa, with Medium Rose Gray & Brown patches weaved in her extremely soft, dense & lustery coat. In 2008, her micron count was 21.8, at the ripe old age of 12!!!!

Orchid is chalk full of an award winning pedigree, & even has a sister who was transferred to Hawaii!
As you can see, with this girl comes all sorts of color, & with the proper breeding, she could produce practically anything including silver, gray, & black.

NOTE: Orchid is unproven, and potentially breed-able, however, upon examination by our vet, she has ovarian cysts, which has thus far prevented her from getting pregnant. She will be sold as 'unproven', thus, if you are able to get her pregnant, her offspring will be registrable.
Otherwise, she will make an EXCELLENT PET, FIBER ANIMAL, or COMPANION!!
