Reflecting on a Llama Legend

Okay, so Midnight Hour probably isn't a legend in the rest of the world but in our world he was quite the man! I have been thinking over the past few days since Midnight passed away, trying to remember all of his offspring and who has them now. We only used him as a stud 9 times and got 6 females and 3 males. Only one of those males is still intact, the other two have been gelded. All of his daughters have been sold - leaving us with only one male out of Midnight Hour, Kemui Yama. Kemui has already started following in his sire's footsteps in the show ring. He took first place in his class, Grand Champion in his Division and Reserve Best in Show the first time we showed him.

So, a walk down memory lane - Midnight Hour's offspring:

Midnight Kachina

Mustang Sally

Midnight Rhapsody

Caballero Rojo (Red)
Gypsy Rose

Midnight's Amazing Grace

Midnight Moonbeam

Midnight's Kemui Yama

Aw. They are all so lovely. So nice that you can see him in all of his offspring.

Is there a method to naming these? I don't know a thing about this--is it like dogs? Do you typically use his name in the offsprings' names?

Pricilla/Patty: Thank you. Yes, his son reminds me so much of him in so many ways.
Lin: Thank you. Yes, there is usually some kind of method in naming the crias. On his crias I used the word "Midnight" in most of them and sometimes I combine a sire's name with something related to the dam's name so I can remember who the parent's are.
Anna: Thank YOU!
