The Heirloom Fleece Cup from the 2013 AOBA National Fleece Show in Denver, CO.
I have to say that not personally being in Denver, Colorado this past May for the AOBA National Conference and Show was rather disappointing! It wasn’t because I loved the idea of driving 20+ hours with a trailer full of . . . → Read More: CCNF results from the AOBA National Fleece Show
CCF Bellagio at the 2012 Futurity where he helped his sire, MFI Peruvian Precocious, win the Futurity Reserve Herdsire of the Year!
Here is another batch of results from the 2nd of the spring fleece shows we were in back in May. PAOBA marked the final show for all of these fleeces, all of . . . → Read More: CCNF Results from the PAOBA Breeder’s Showcase Fleece Show
With some official results posted the other day on AOBA’s web site, we are now able to start reporting on some of our our winnings from the spring fleece shows! MAPACA was the first fleece show of the spring for us, and like the PAOBA Breeder’s Showcase which followed shortly thereafter, our . . . → Read More: CCNF results from the MAPACA Jubilee Fleece Show
It’s that time again, when we look back at the previous year’s show winnings and howl at the moon for just a moment or two. 2012 marked Cas-Cad-Nac Farm’s 15th anniversary and as one might reasonably expect of a program that has been around that long, our winnings reflect the cumulative effect of careful and . . . → Read More: 2012: 1st Place Finishes, Championships, and Specialty Awards
It’s been a tough few months for a couple of the male crias up at the Arena. First in the days before Christmas Juliet’s little guy, Undici (he was born on 11/11/11), somehow managed to get stepped on or kicked. Though we initially took it to be a soft tissue injury in his ankle joint, . . . → Read More: Crias beware
Yes, it’s the shameless pat-ourselves-on-the-back-for-walking-in-circles post here at CCNF Chronicles. For years a similar edition of the hard copy newsletter would hit the mail around the 15th of January filled with show results and glossy photos. Well, kind of the same idea here except that I’m two weeks late, the photos aren’t glossy (pixely?), and . . . → Read More: 2011 1sts, Championships, and Specialty Awards
Jen and CCNF Bellagio at the 2011 Empire Extravaganza show
Bellagio is admittedly one young boy that slipped through the sales list cracks. He was a relatively late birth in 2010 and as such was really off of our radar screen a bit, not having been ready for show duty yet last spring. As . . . → Read More: Then there was this guy!
Oh man, I’m almost giddy: I just looked at the calendar and saw that there are really only 2.5 weeks left in our kids soccer season! Does that mean I’m not a true soccer dad? So be it. Much as I love watching them play it is safe to say that the 5 day a . . . → Read More: Gearing up the whole team
Sorry not to have posted as much lately. The truth is I didn’t expect that any of you would find stories of commutes to and from school/soccer practice/games mixed in with exciting tales of rain falling on an alpaca farm all that exciting. New England as a whole (yours truly included) has also spent the . . . → Read More: Getting our Bells rung
