Maraschino is a really unique grey female. When she was born, she was so light, she looked white with a perfect light silver grey circle on the top of her head, a darker grey spot behind an armpit and grey on her tail and around her eyes...she was a 'stealth' grey!
Over time, her almost white fiber took on a super light silver grey tone throughout her entire blanket and is seriously such a cool animal. Her first cria was a gorgeous classic grey male when bred to Destino, one of our modern grey boys. Maraschino has an incredibly fine, webby fleece, the kind that you could just spin right from the raw blanket. It is incredibly bright with a good staple length.
Let's dig into her lines so we can talk about those grey genetics.
Maraschino is one of our beloved sire's offspring, Sunrose Coyo's Noble Savage. Savage is a half accoyo lilac rose grey with dark eyes and the most regal of presences. He has an incredibly uniform fleece, in color and in it's qualities. He has produced some of the nicest animals since starting his breeding career. Maraschino's dam, Cherrie, is another really cool light silver grey female with dark eyed grey girl out of one of our foundation girls, Berrie, who had done well back in her day in the show ring and is out of one of our past multichamp harlequin males, Hollywood's Hilltop's Paparazzi... who was seriously an incredible guy who we feel lucky to get to have some of his descendants on our farm!
