The Phalene Page
Our initial interest in phalenes was greatly encouraged and assisted by the late Thelma Morrell, who had an especial passion for phalenes. She sent us our two first girls from NZ. Of these two, one proved suitable to retain in our programme - Farfalla Absolutly Aimee. Although not a phalene herself, her mother is from pure French phalene lines, & Aimee carries the genetics. Although Aimee disliked the show ring, she is a delightfully natured girl who has proven to be an excellent mother.
Once we had commenced on our phalene journey, Rebecca Hitchcock (Kutas prefix & Sharon Spooner (Mondelise prefix) provided additional encouragement. From Rebecca, we have Kutas Shooting Star (Oliver) and Kutas Falena Keiko; and from Sharon, we have Mondelise Paradissmo (Katyana).All 3 have perfect phalene ears, and Katyana added exceptional bloodlines. We have since added Treschic The Golden Hind (Jamie) our first red & white phalene (once again, perfect phalene ears); Farfalla Dainty Racquel (Kelly) our first red & white girl; and more recently Seyoso Diamond From Downunder (Dougie, black & white)whose sire is Pol Jnr Ch/Ch Coffee Candy Forussi (imp Pol); from Tracey Clements of Emmoge prefix Emmoge Little Town Flirt (Lana), red & white whose sire is the internationally renowned Multi Ch Starblaze Hugo Boss. In addition, we have staying with us courtesy of Janine Moy Ch Papunique Ima Funny Guy (Ted, sable & white). We are grateful to all the breeders who have assisted us in obtaining these diverse genetics that will hopefully allow us to breed sound, quality phalenes with delightful temperaments.
We have now produced our first show worthy phalene, Kalkite Bird of Paradise (Bertie)who is already winning at group level. We look forward to updating our progress with our beautiful moths.
