Henry David Thoreau at Ideuma Creek!
Meet Accoyo Thoreau born on July 13. There is, of course, a personal connection to the name. I teach reading. I try to teach a love of reading. One of the first things I have my students learn is the 8 habits of a good reader. The last "habit" is that you make the book a part of your life. Reading "Walden" by Henry David Thoreau when I was a sophomore in college truly changed my life. This book became a part of me. I remember thinking what an important life adventure it was for Thoreau to spend so much...
Inspiration born on My Mother's Birthday
Please meet Peruvian Inspiration born on August 14, 2016, my Mother's 77th birthday. My Mom and I watched the birth that day. I knew I would name this beautiful little girl after my Mom; it just took me a long time to find the perfect one. My Mom has been my inspiration my whole life. If you have ever met her, you know how much she enjoys every minute of her existence. She always is thinking of others and has remained young her whole life. She is pictured below at age 76 more excited than a little kid to be...
Meet Fairy Tale - Born July 21, 2016
Here's the newest named cria for you all to meet - Ideuma Creek's Perucoyo Fairy Tale born on July 21. This name resonates with me for two very specific reasons that both stem from my childhood.

When we would play with dolls when I was very young, my friends' dolls were all married to movie stars and lived in castles. My doll was a veterinarian and had her own farm.

A Blue Ribbon for Silver Grey Willow
Just got our fleeces back from the Tennessee Waltz Fleece Show. We're so excited! We sent two fleeces and came home with two blue ribbons and a championship! This is Perucoyo Willow's silver grey fleece. Her sire is Shooting Star's Peruvian Grey Matter
A Championship for Accoyo Crescendo!
We were thrilled with this championship at The Tennessee Waltz Fleece Show! It is Accoyo Crescendo, a cross of a fawn Invasion daughter and our herdsire PHA Accoyo Zagot. What is even better is that a full sister to Crsecendo was just born last week! Wini's comments were, "showing exceptional fineness and good overall uniformity". You might remember that this was our first attempt at any kind of line breeding. Crescendo is a distant cross of Caligula lineage. We're so excited he did so well at his very first show!
