"Everyone who comes to visit our farm comments on Renatta. She's just such a striking color. As you can tell from her photos, when she is in full fleece, she is so dark, she almost looks like a bay black. But when shorn, Renatta's fleece exhibits a gorgeous deep maroon color with black points.
Both of Renatta's parents are colorful '98 Peruvian imports. This explains her beautiful color and her ability to pass on color - including true black. Renatta not only has colorful fleece, she has dense, crimpy fleece and amazing coverage, even in her ears!
Renatta gave us a gorgeous true black full Peruvian girl out of Conan in 2008. She's dense, soft, crimpy, and oh-what an adorable fiber filled face! Raven is one of only two true black full Peruvian females out of Conan. We feel lucky to have her! In 2009 Renatta did it again. She gave us a true black boy out of our champion black herdsire, The Scotsman who has already been purchased as a future herdsire.
She did it again for us in 2010! Renatta gave birth to a gorgeous black female, Ideuma Creek's Peruvian Abbey Dubbel, out of our blue ribbon silver grey herdsire, Peruvian Silver Bullet. We were so pleased with Abbey that we rebred Renatta to Bullet for a full Peruvain cria in 2011. It could be maroon, black, or grey - any of the choices are good!
UPDATE - Renatta gave us another girl in 2011 - a beautiful maroon, a carbon copy of herself!
We have rebred Renatta to Silver Bullet for her 2012 cria. We've been thrilled with what the two of these have produced for us in the past, so we figured we'd try it again!"
