Photos of Champagne & Pearls as a cria
Split Rock Champagne & Pearls (aka "Rosie") is a stunning silver suri female sired by our Shimmering Sands out of Stage Stop Minnie Pearl. She has her sire's suri fiber and her dam's silver color genes along with her sweet, friendly, laid-back personality. She is everything we've ever wanted in a suri female for our herd! She looked rose gray when she was born so I started calling her "Rosie" and it stuck. I was going to name her Champagne, Roses & Pearls but that name is so long for such a sweet little girl! Her dam was silver as a cria but she faded out to a taupe color in the sun. Rosie, however, has stayed this incredible silver color. Her fiber is to die for. It continues to form tighter lock structure as she ages.
I took more current photos on 8/13/13 and you can see that Rosie still has silver fiber, which is rare. Most silver and gray fiber bleaches out in the sun and turns brown or taupe. And you can see that her fiber is pencil locked to the skin.
