Vinny is technically a Light Rose Gray as he has the Rose Gray down his neck, the cap on his head and brown and black fibers running all throughout his blanket. This makes Vinny another "stealth" Gray and puts him in the line-up with - The Peruvian Tin Man - Benchmark's Prefontaine and Benchmark's Coyo Iron Man. To cover Gray and have the fineness, bundles and elite fleece is a rare find and just what Vinny offers.

Vinny's Dam is none other than the MAPACA Gray Color Champion - Vindaloo! Her rich Rose Gray color and super fine fleece has complimented Accoyo The Babe well and helped to produce a high quality Herd Sire in Vinny.

Vinny has been shown in Indefinite Light - meaning he is a light animal with dark fibers running through - when he was a Juvi. Then at one show as a Yearling, he color checked as a Beige. Although I knew that wasn't the class he belonged in, but with his amazing fleece, I knew he could hold his own - and that he did. The judge could not say enough about him and actually complimented him more than any of his competition. She loved his balanced frame, large bone, coverage, typey head, high frequency crimp and tiny bundles. She explained to all that the reason he was standing in 5th (out of 15 animals at a level V show) was due to the dark fibers running throughout his fleece.

Vinny has improved with age, so at just 1 week shy of 3 years old, we entered him into the National AOBA show 2010. He placed First in his class and then went on to beat out the much younger competition with his fineness and consistency. He walked out of the ring with the Color Champion Banner.

Uniformity, Consistency, Fineness... It is difficult to find such low SD and CV numbers.
