IPRA's Graceful Highland Thistle is the first cria out of our very first cria, IPRA Grazioso Fiorellina. As you can imagine we've been not so patiently waiting for this little guy. He showed up around 11am on 7/20/16 and boy is he something! He is the spitting image of his banner winning dam and is a fearless little dynamo. He spents most of his days running around chest bumping his pasture mates. Even our alpha female, Sonora, isn't safe from Thistle's rambunctious energy.

We're quite pleased with how Thistle did in the ring during his first 3 shows in Spring 2017. Judge Amanda VanDenBosch said he had "Nice confirmation and good structure. Good crimp and staple. Carries that down the side and into rear well. Nice brightness." Thistle continues to mature nicely and we're quite happy with how his fleece is coming in.
