2016 Crescendo produced a total weight of 9.1 pounds of buttery soft and fine fleece. Staple length still well over 5 inches with a bold crimp. This fleece is not for sale for the 2016 shearing season. A keeper for my own spinning and processing.
Melody Lane Crescendo produced a gorgeous female out of our Melody Lane Mandolin. Bell has produced her first offspring and was sold in June 2015 to Coffee Pot Farms.
Bell resembles her sire Crescendo and has folds down her neck and back that signify density. The combination of Crescendo and Mandolin (Stratosphere Daughter) is a win win as it combines softness with density, staple length that at less than a year old came in over 4 inches at time of shearing.
Crescendo is consistent in fiber softness, shine, super long staple length and his bold crimp. A deep rich Maroon coloring personifies his presence and only adds to his beauty and impressive conformation.
Son to El Ninos Valerian (no longer living), his lineage on the sires side is impressive: PPPeruvian Sunipani (Peru), PCA Accoyo El Nino (no longer living), PPeruvian Caligula (Peru), PPeruvian Victor (Peru), MSA Peruvian Verbena, PPPeruvian Ayabaca Peru) (Peru). A heritage next to none.
Son to HAA Peruvian Golden Goose (name you have heard before) with our farm and her magnificent lineage: 5Peruvian Camelot (Peru), HAA Camalot;s Triumphant Son, 5Peruvian Fantasia (Peru), Peruvian White Out (Peru), PLF Christmastime, PPPeruvian Springtime (Peru).
Crescendo would be a superb herdsire for your farm and breeding program. He is halter trained and easy to handle.
He continues to win recognition and ribbons with his fiber for his age. Like his dam he carries the gene of fineness and staple length.
