Fifty is a promising son of Caligula's Accoyo Poseidon. With grandsires Peruvian Accoyo Legacy and Accoyo Caligula, Fifty Caliber is 3/4 Accoyo, nearly full Peruvian and a worthy descendant of these outstanding herdsires. His photo shows him after winning blue and red ribbons at the 2006 Southwest Regional Alpaca Show under Senior Judge Jude Anderson.
Fifty's fiber has bright, pure white, deep, 8 crimps per inch, with matchstick bundling, great handle and near total uniformity (minimal kemp on his chest). His density is proven by the fact he sheared over 11 lbs in 2008! Nifty has great presence, fiber characteristics and conformation, and a stable AFD for years! Couple that with his pedigree and a breeder just can't go wrong. An inexpensive way to add Caligula and Snowmass genetics to your herd!
Fifty Caliber shattered his femur at 7 months of age. It was rod-and wired back together at Colorado State University, and he has recovered fully. The injury and recovery time limited showing, but see his show winnings! He is able to assume the breeding position completely normally and behaves in an lusty, masterful manner. Results of his first breeding exposures were a beautiful white female with superb, fine, dense, well-defined fiber. More offspring on the way!!
