Normally, we offer proven bred females but it is high time to trot out one of our best young females produced here in quite some time. Icing is precisely what we breed for here: blocky build, pleasing type, coverage everywhere you can get it, and a ripping fleece architecture! As a friend remarked upon seeing her when I said "I think it is time for me to trim her topknot," "Well, you shouldn't because that IS the Icing on that cupcake!"

Icing's dam line could not be a stronger one than it is. Her maternal granddam, my 6P Accoyo Last Don daughter, was my matriarch full Accoyo female. Her dam is sired by my own home-bred and born multiple color champion white male Hidden Hill Peruvian Dually. Dually's dam, CP Chilam, should have been famous and would have been had she been owned by a big farm, but she lived most of her life in NH on my farm and another neighboring small program that selected for quality. She was white, made white, and they selected for color, so she moved to my farm. Simple as that. Accoyo America Typhoon, our Nautilus son, was so nice that Pacific Crest repeated the breeding several times, and he sired Icing. Typhoon imparted a brightness to the fleece that just makes things even nicer.

Now, take a look at her histogram. One thing that I realize many people are not keyed in on -- and quite honestly, as someone that likes a stat that you can actually "see," I understand why only fiber processors care about it -- is mean curvature. Icing had a mean curvature on her very first fleece of 59. More and more, it is routine for us to see mean curvature here in the 60s to high 70s.

Now, if she stays here, in all likelihood, she would be line-bred, as I don't know how I would take her further without doing so. I have two working next-generation sons of her grandsire here (one is an amazing fawn that I actually believe is a true roan) and one that is coming up on breeding age soon. I am asked quite often if I would sell Dually sons, but I have actually bought a few IN! Otherwise, I also have the unbelievably gorgeous 14 year old Pacific Crest Da Vinci, and I am line-breeding him to Caligula's Casanova and Dually offspring here. Da Vinci imparts exceptional fleece uniformity and fineness as well as (yes, you read this correctly) eleven pound average blanket only fleece weights.

For those that are not adventurous enough to try line-breeding, I have a couple of amazing males, one sired by my own Status Symbol SSMRT, that is a 7X color champion in his own right as well as a freaky fine son of the great Rensselaer. You can look them up on my website -- Salt Creek's Takoda and FCF Atreyu, respectively. Quite honestly, if breeding her, I would seize on the opportunity to use a screamingly low SD male, which means I would go to the Dually sons for sure!

Now, why would I even sell this female? Well, I own her dam and I own her sire. I can make another one if I wish.

We like to tailor financing to meet the needs of our clients, so we do not have set terms. Everyone has a different set of parameters, just as they do different goals, so a 'one size fits all' approach just makes no sense when talking financing terms.
