Cavalier is the product of a well thought-out breeding between ROCKFORD CAROLING BELLS and DIOMEDES' DIRK OF STIRLING RIDGE.

Progeny of one of our best Matriarchs -- LPS LUCIA FERNANDEZ (ZHANNA SUNRISE IMPA98 x Candian Champion JOLIMONT GOLD DUST--sired by DRACO) and exceptionally dense, Accoyo multi blue ribbon-winning champion---SNOWMASS SNOW LEGEND, (Sired by SNOWMASS INCAACCOYO STAR & grandsired by legend SNOWMASTER!!), Cavalier's dam-Carol not only has an incredible lineage, but has fleece that proves it. Her histograms have maintained: 17.9, 19.8, 19, and 20.7 microns, and her fleece is like opening a treasure box--packed with density and crimp.

With Cavalier comes a line of lingering fineness (meaning their fleece stays fine). His grandsire, award-winning Snowmass Snow Legend had an AFD of whopping 14.4 (year 1); 18.8 (year 3); 20.7 (year 5); & 21.6 (year 8).
His granddam, LPS Lucia Fernandez shows: 17.4 (year 1); 22 (6 years); & 22.8 (year 9)!!!

His dam's full sisters Pearl & Beauty show the same:
Pearl: 1 year: 20.8; 2nd year: 19.1; 4th year: 19.2
Beauty: 1 year: 16.7; 2nd year: 17.5; 3rd year: 18.7

His sire, Dirk is packed with genetics from GUELLERMO, MICHELANGELO, ONYX DE MICO, HEMINGWAY, CALIGULA, AND HEMINGWAY-ACCOYO NAUTILUS, and was sired by ACCOYO AMERICA DIOMEDES x SRA KENZIE (colorful lineage). Judge Jill McLeod commented several times on his fleece consistency and placed him First in the competitive NWAS 2010.

Even now, Cavalier's fleece is very bright, soft, dense, and crimpy, and has all the potential to be more. This breeding is rare, combining some of the best of Snowmass with Canadian Champions, Accoyo America, and more, and not something to be passed up!!
