Gorgeous Grey/Roan Kit Carson Daughter

MHAR Juhlia Talvi by Kit Carson

Huacaya Open (Female) Medium Rose Grey

AOA# 35363835 DOB: 1/7/20184 yrs
At birth, we thought Juhlia might be rose gray. But as she grew more and more silver fibers appeared so that now her fleece is like a water color with the color ranging from silver gray to rose gray as you look across her body. Check out the picture of her neck as she's being sheared. Like her half siblings, she sports abundant crimpy, soft fleece that you want to touch over and over. And check out the fleece coverage that extends across her nose! Look for Juhlia and the others in the fall s ...

At birth we thought WOW! This girl has a LOT of fleece and the early bundling in the popcorn curls was impressive. As she's grown the fleece quality and character has done nothing but improve. Check out the bundling in the photo of the shorn fleece. Her fleece has an amazing buttery handle with great fineness and density. She's definitely destined for the show ring!

Unfortunately we weren't able to show Irene in spring 2021 due the the COVID 19 Pandemic (and shows being cancelled). Ordinarily, we'd have bred her this fall. But when we saw that we were actually going to have a fall show, we decided to wait and we're glad we did!

At the Gold Country Gathering 2021, Irene earned a First Place and Color Champion in Halter. Judge Wade Gease called her the complete package, noting her very fine, dense fleece, with long staple length. In Walking Fleece, Judge Ken Hibbits loved her fleece's hand, staple length, crimpy bundling, and balance, with nice uniformity across her body, awarding her First Place.

Judge Beverly Brehm seemed to almost blush when announcing "this girl has amazing fleece!" in the Halter class at the CA Classic 2022. Then she went on to praise her density, staple length and character in addition to being well grown, when awarding her First Place. In Walking Fleece, Judge David Barboza noted her uniformity, fineness, density, bundling and handle, placing her in Fourth Place in a very competitive class.

We entered her 2022 fleece in two fleece shows. Judge Stephanie Glyptis noted her "incredible staple length and carries well defined crimp to the tips" when awarding her 81.5 points, earning her the Advanced Fleece Award in the AOA National Fleece Show. Then, Judge Beverly Brehm noted "Wow! What a beautiful fleece! Uniform, ultrafine and excellent crimp style!..." when awarding her 82.5 points.
