'Certiorari' is a Writ rarely granted by an Appellate Court. When Cert. was born, we were granted a very rare gift. She is perfect in every way from her square large frame to her exemplary fleece coverage that starts with a full curly topknot, dense neck and extends to her toes with uniformly fine weighty locks. Without question, Certiorari stands out. In full fleece, she's a stunningly beautiful animal with very long soft fleece pouring off every inch of her exquisite frame, exhibiting high frequency crimp that achieved a perfect score for fineness & handle from Judge Ruth Elvestad.
Cert. is 1 of 2 dark offspring sired by PLF. P. Jubilant, an outstanding Herd Sire out of Accoyo Grand Master. Cert's color and reproductive strength hail from her Dam. In 2013, she ranked in the top 2 to 11% for 7 of the 9 traits tracked, rare for a dark animal. Cert. is a very attentive Mom with lots of milk producing cria darker than herself having exemplary fleece characteristics.
"Head and shoulders above the rest in his class," Judge Tellier 2004 GWAS. Imperial earned a blue for his combination of body capacity, heavy bone, fleece character and conformation. He is straight, strong, square and 1 of only a few colored male offspring sired by the incomparable Presidio. His Dam, Cuncullane's Cutie Pye, is a very fine fleeced Chilean from an elite line of production Dams. She never had a dystocia, maintained her super fine fleece throughout her life and produced year after year without succumbing to the stresses of pregnancy. In 2013, she made the TOP 5 EPD list for the trait of reducing fibers over 30 microns and ranked in the top 1 to 3% for the first 7 fiber traits tracked (out of 27,776 females). If you are looking to significantly improve conformation, reproductive longevity, bite, increase milk production, maintain color, add size, substance of bone and improve fleece characteristics, you can't go wrong with this male. He is simply extraordinary!!!
'Verdictu'; a formal declaration made by a jury of one's peers. Our Verdictu turns the heads of the competition. He is a standout in every way. Verdictu has grown into a sizeable, nicely proportioned male with great substance of bone carrying a gorgeously bright very uniform brown fleece with excessive weight, long staple and great crimp style.
Verdictu's heritage is a litany of renowned alpacas. Caligula, Presidio, our Imperial, Grand Master, Jubilant and The Colorado-Pisarata are the Sires. The Dams include our TOP 5 EPD female Cutie Pye and our queen of color Sedona. The color contribution from these elite production Dams is why Imperial is throwing from white to black and everything in between, including Verdictu. Verdictu's Dam (Certiorari) and his Sire (Imperial), are both rare colored offspring from Jubilant and Presidio and 2 of my best animals.
Verdictu's fleece is very very fine considering not only his dark coloring but also his stature. Verdictu's EPD numbers rank very high for a white and remarkable for a dark brown. He ranks in the top 3 to 26% for the first 7 traits tracked. AFD (16%), SDAFD (6%), SF (11%), %F>30 (3%), %M (14%), MC (23%), SDMC (26%).
Verdictu should hold his fineness as he ages as have both his parents. Judges comment on Verdictu's beautiful head style, appreciate his overall size and conformation and admired how well grown a male he was as a yearling.
Verdictu is one of few male offspring sired by our Herd Sire Imperial. We do not wish to part with this valuable male but offer him as an example of what our breeding program is producing. Verdictu will no doubt add a rainbow of color to his offspring, improve conformation and structural soundness, add milk production to female offspring, improve fleece quality by reducing micron and medullation, add curvature and fleece weight. We wish we had more unrelated females, as we can't wait to see Verditu's offspring. You won't find much better than Verdictu.
