When we bought Adrastea at the Breeder's Choice Futurity & Sale, we fell in love with her soft handle (2008 AFD=15.8, SD=3.5, CV=22, %>30=0.6). ... we had suspicions that this lovely beige girl, with dark pigmentation and gray fiber at her skin and in her topknot, would very likely throw something very special. And she did just that!
Gun Smoke is 1/4 Accoyo, sired by MFI Pistol, a black Dakotia son. After Dakotia's untimely death, Magical Farms decided to retire Pistol from the show ring at only 18 months of age. Even with his early retirement, Pistol earned 3 championships & 7 blue ribbons (including 2 consecutive blue ribbons for his fleece at the 2003 & 2004 AOBA Nationals). Pistol was truly one of Magical Farm's elite herd sires and, in the fall of 06, sold at auction for $230,000.
Gun Smoke has won multiple Championship Banners & multiple Blue Ribbons. He has placed in every show he's entered. (All AOBA Certified & most are Level V shows)
