Zola is a daughter of the nationally acclaimed herdsire, Peruvian Bueno. She has a sturdy frame, with good bone structure. In 2004 we bred her to Pinti, an award-winning grey herdsire. The terrific result was her 2005 cria, Blushing Rose, a beautiful ribbon-winning medium silver grey girl, who has won ribbons in Level 5 shows.
Zola was re-bred to the award winning Absolut, and in June of 2007 presented us with Pulsera, a beautiful black girl with white bracelets on her front ankles. Once again Zola's father (Bueno) has made his presence felt as little 'Sera has well defined crimp, density & staple length, along with wonderful brightness. She has become another of our ribbon winning animals.
In December of 2008, we attempted to go for another grey girl by re-breeding her to Pinti. Unfortunately, as luck would have it, we got a blue-eyed white female cria. As a blue-eyed white female from a grey parent has strong potential to produce grey, we will add her strengths to o
As a juvenile, he had already taken a reserve color championship, and has mostly firsts & seconds in the shows he has appeared in. Joe has taken 20 ribbons to date and is the complete package.
"Best handle in the class, best fineness in the class, best density in the class...he has that high frequency crimp that is usually associated with fineness, and that I just don't want to let go of." These were the words of Judge Mary Reed in awarding Joe Louis the first place ribbon and Reserve color championship at the 2008 Huron Spring Alpaca Show.
We have been hearing similar reviews about this full Peruvian boy ever since he began his show career.
He is the son of Ricochett, a blue ribbon winning son of Remington, and is strongly stamped with the Remington traits!
Joe Louis is everything you could wish for in a brown boy. He has incredible fineness (his dark brown dam has a 23.0 micron at age 10!), density and terrific crimp with an incredible frequency of 11
Ren Farm's Hera's Storm is a light fawn girl out of our black female, Alta Luna's Zola, a Peruvian Bueno daughter. Her sire is our own reserve Champion and 20-ribbon winner, Ren Farm's Joe Louis.
Hera's first annual shearing produced an wonderfully low AFD of 17.8, with a SD of 3.7, and only 0.8% >30 microns. Her second shearing was equally impressive, with an AFD of 17.3, SD of 4.2 and only 0.5% >30 microns. This vast improvement over her dam's micron was no doubt a benefit derived from her sire, Ren Farms' Joe Louis, who has driven down the cria's micron from the dam's micron on every breeding we've done with him. This very low micron is also likely to be retained by her over time, as her paternal grandmother, our foundation female, Anais, is a dark brown girl who still produced a 23.0 AFD micron fleece at the age of ten! Hera's dam, Zola, has produced several ribbon-winning cria for us!
Although, she has a wonderfully soft fleece, the uniformity in crimp architecture that we like to see in our top of the line breeding stock is not present in Hera. She will need to be bred to males with a strong crimp architecture, and the resulting cria will likely be something impressive, indeed! Hera sells with 2 free breedings to your choice of any of our herdsires, when she comes of breeding age.
Her $500 price includes 2 free breedings to your choice of our superb herdsires, any of whom would provide the improved crimp structure Hera needs assistance on in producing superior crias - an excellent value.
