News Flash! Crystal Blue's first cria is on the ground and he's a big boy weighing in at 21.9 lbs. He was up, roaming the pasture and trying to nurse before he was even dry. With a nice square frame and loads of popcorn curls that are already starting to form crimpy bundles at the skin, this boy has lots of potential! We can't wait to see how he grows. Scroll to the bottom to see his birthday pix.

Crystal Blue has settled quite a few of our ladies with pregnancies confirmed. We're offering his services now at a low price while we wait to see what he produces. This is your chance to get one of his breedings at an introductory price. We expect the price will rise when we see more of his get!

Crystal Blue was born 3+ weeks early and a bit dismature. But, at 16 lbs, he caught up quickly, showing us a nice square frame and upright posture. Just look at how he poses for the camera!
His fleece is very soft, bright and crimpy with really nice early bundling/density. We had planned to show him in 2020 and spring 2021, but with the COVID-19 pandemic, the shows were all cancelled and we're so disappointed.

Instead we sent Blue's yearling fleece to the AOA National Fleece Show 2021. Judge Amanda Vandenbosch commented on the fine fleece, good staple length and even color, awarding him Seventh Place.

At the Gold Color Gathering 2021 Fleece Show, that same yearling fleece earned First Place (of 9) and Color Champion from Cheryl Gehly who commented: "Excellent Character and Brightness! Secondaries are really fine!".

In Halter at GCG 21, Judge Wade Gease noted the fineness, staple length and excellent conformation/bone after awarding him Second Place, with only density holding him back from First. Later in Walking Fleece, Cheryl Gehly praised his retained fineness, noting he's very fine for his age, with little guard hair and excellent uniformity between primary and secondary fibers, placing him Second (of 5) in the two year class.

At the CA Classic 2022, Judge Laurel Shouvlin praised his fleece organizationn/character, and his good conformation, awarding him 2nd Place followed by Reserve Champion in Halter. In Walking Fleece, Judge David Barboza mentioned his long staple and nice organization, saying he especially liked the character, density, uniformity and handle, placing him in First Place (of 6) and Reserve Champion.

In the 2022 CALPACA Autumn Fleece Extravaganza, Judge Beverly Brehm noted his soft handling fleece with good uniformity.
Then in the Gold Country Gathering 2022 Judge Stephanie Glyptis loved his conformation and fine, uniform fleece, awarding him First Place and Color Champion in the Halter Class. In Walking Fleece, Judge Dianna Timmerman gave him First Place, noting the fineness, uniformity and staple length of his fleece.
