"At five years of age, K-2's fleece has the characteristics of extreme lock structure verging on bundling. Think Hemingway, and you have about got what K-2 fleece is like. While white is his color, he has thrown amazing fawns here at Hidden Hill. Even in a dark barn, K-2's fleece is readily identified as an elite fleece. If you ever wondered how to breed for that high frequency crimp with extreme brightness and tiny, distinct bundles, well, here is a boy who can throw this. The consistency of his offspring is the real proof." Carol Karsten, Hidden Hill Farm, breeder of the 2009 Futurity White Male Champion

A really nice daughter of Studmaster (TM) K-2 and an Acero Marka Bolivian female. Jamaica has proven herself to be a reliable producer of quality crias - the kind of female that successful alpaca businesses are built upon.
Sire - K-2 is a nationally known sire that was selected for the Studmaster (TM) program by Mike Safely as a true 'impact sire'. The combination of fineness, density, and crimp exhibited by this male is exceptional. And he has maintained these qualities into full maturity and beyond:
4 yr Histogram: 22.6-AD, 4.7-SD, 20.6-CV
Dam - The Acero Marka Bolivian imports have a reputation for quality. Silken has a reliable production record, delivering her 8th registered cria in 2010 at age 11 1/2.
Jamaica has produced six quality crias for Sixth Day, and still has a long productive life ahead of her. Check out her production record, and her fiber record to the left, and you will see why this is the kind of female savy breeders like to keep!
Jamaica is located at Sixth Day Farm West in Wellington, CO.
