Merry Noel is a 3/4 Accoyo from one of the greatest imported Peruvians, PPPeruvian Augusto. Augusto had a rating of 9 due to his fine micron and excellent fleece coverage. Her dam's sire was the 1995 import full accoyo PPPeruvian Bravado. Merry Noel would make an excellent addition for the breeder looking for the accoyo bloodline and well structured fleece. She gave birth on 6/16/09 from our blue ribbon herdsire Peruvian Donato to a boy with excellent fiber character. "Donner" had his first shearing in August and had a 15.8 micron!
Merry Noel has been exposed to El Nino's Accoyo Galileo for a 2010 cria. Male or female, this 7/8 accoyo cria should be spectacular.
IHA Presidio's Donato
White, 1345469, Full Peruvian
If your looking for fleece with crimp, density, brightness and handle this 3/8 accoyo male has it all. Son of Peruvian Presidio, one of Caligula's greatest sons, as well as Royal Fawn and Hemingway on the dams side. Donato's demeanor is gentle and he is very easy to handle. What great genetics to add to any herd. Truly some of the best fleece you will find. Donato's fleece placed 5th in the 2008 AOBA National F2F Fleece Show. Donato has several cria on the ground and his offspring all carry the fleece characteristics that you want to see passed down. The density, fineness, crimp and brightness are outstanding. Donato has 10 offspring on the ground including 4 at Oak Lawn Alpacas. We can show you the fleece improvements from dam to offspring. Donato had 2 cria born this spring and when sheared at end of summer, a boy had a 15.8 micron and a female had an 18 micron. He certainly passes along his fineness.
2008 shearing, 7.2 lb. blanket and 12 lbs. total sheer weight! H
Just In for December 2015, Donner is in the top 1% EPDs for Fleece Weight!
Donner is a 1/2 Accoyo son of our blue ribbon herdsire IHA Peruvian Donato and our 3/4 Accoyo Augusto daughter Merry Noel. Donners fleece is simply amazing His fiber is bright and has extreme bundling. He is dense and best of all, a fine 16.8 micron. His sire Donato still has a 23.8 micron at 8 years of age. Donato shears 10 - 12 lbs. yearly and Donner is following in those same footsteps. His grandsire PPPeruvian Augusto was also known for his fineness. This pedigree has Royal Fawn, Caligula, Augusto, Hemingway and Presidio.
Donners skin biopsy results are in and Norm Evans places him in the top 2 3% of males he has tested. At 3 years old, his density is 64 follicles sq mm, s/p ratio 14.1:1, level 4 of 4 gland presence which creates the brightness that is a highly heritable trait! His secondary fibers were an 18.3 micron and primary was 26 putting him below the average variation that Norm has tested which is 8.3.
Donner's fleece always took 1st at shows and won awards for best hand, best crimp and the judges always commented on his outstanding brightness. This he is passing to his offspring.
We are selling Donner because he is to good of a herd sire to not be used by someone. With having Peruvian Ventura and Peruvian Dasher (Donner's 1/2 brother) he simply is not getting the breeding opportunities.
This is an outstanding herd sire for a very reasonable price.
