Congratulations to Louise's daughter, Louisiana, sired by Maple Brook Bolero, on her outstanding skin biopsy!
"An exceptional female, worthy of the moniker elite, for a white, female, huacaya alpaca. This is a top quality female showing all the characteristics that breeders look for in top herd sires. The slide photograph (showing well organized fiber bundles in the skin) says it all!"
Ian Watt, Alpaca Consulting USA 14 February 2012
Reluctantly offered... Louise is a perfect foundation female for Sixth Day Farm. 'Foundation' means something solid to build on: a perfect description of Louise.
Louise is retaining the vigor and fiber qualities we all want to see in our older alpacas. Her density and crimp is exceptional for her age- and beautiful for any age! Her density and fiber diameter are both significantly above average for alpacas in this age range. These are the qualities that the best ot the Alianza alpacas are famous for.
Sire - Hemingway is the quintessential 'impact' sire; his influence on the improvement of fiber quality in alpacas can be seen around the world.
Dam - The white import, Pperuvian Analia. Her production record of 10 registered crias, with the last born when she was estimated to be 16 years old, shows that she has had the long productive life as a brood-female that we all want in our herds.
Fleece - Louise's fiber exhibits the high-frequency crimp and organization to her fiber that Hemingway is known for. Like Hemingway, she also has admireable density. Make an appointment to come see her and her outstanding offspring.
Progeny include: - Franklin's Liberty, Sired by the Felix son, Accoyo Franklin. See him on our herdsire list. - Mr Liam is her son sired by Mister Maverick. - Bolero's Louisiana, her 2010 cria, is outstanding. This one has banners in her future.
Hemingway is gone, so there will be no more direct daughters.
