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
CCNF Annabeth and her little Wayfarer daughter on Monday afternoon.
I love it when crias come out just the way that we had ordered them. Amongst other things, it helps to further promote the mythology that we know exactly what it is we are doing here!
In this particular case, the baby in question . . . → Read More: Wayfarer’s first…with a grey twist!
CCF Bellagio at the 2012 Futurity where he helped his sire, MFI Peruvian Precocious, win the Futurity Reserve Herdsire of the Year!

Random bits while waiting for the 2013 cria dam to truly break:
1. La Vie en Rose and Capella, who were both due in May have now had their crias (1 female, 1 male for whatever it’s worth) but that leaves 60+ more females that are due between now and December, the vast majority over . . . → Read More: Holding pattern
There is considerable history for us with the North American Alpaca Show, the vast majority of it good. For starters, having helped to run the show itself throughout its first 10 years of existence, it has managed to ingrain/ingratiate itself into our little family’s annual rhythm. In fact as I was coming to around 5:15 . . . → Read More: North American show recap
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
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.

Jen and the kiddos walk Conceptious, Smoke Ring, Sundowner, Inferno, and Booger in the parade.
So for those of you that aren’t aware, Cas-Cad-Nac Farm is in fact located in the rather large town of Weathersfield, VT. It’s a classic New England thing. Perkinsville, which appears in our mailing address is just a small . . . → Read More: CCNF at Weathersfield’s 250th Anniversary
CCNF Smoke Ring
We were very excited when our lone high-end grey production girl, Maid Marian, gave birth to a grey Ring of Fire son last summer! Whether I had Gandalf on the mind or just a little word play going on, I think he was named Smoke Ring not long after he was . . . → Read More: Then there was this guy!
