Summer was purchased to bring some density to our foundation. Summer is a solid production dam who any breeder could get many quality alpacas in the years to come. Summer's next herdsire will be Bluegrass Peruvian Prophecy who will bring exceptional fiber fineness to her next 2014 offspring and the genetic insurance to continue that fineness in their offspring. This is an exceptional value for any buyer. The breeding she comes with is worth the this price alone.
We have three daughters of Summer who we are using for our foundation breeding program. Let summer start bringing density and fineness to your breeding program. She is an easy breeder, great mother and gives birth with ease. She is also a dam who will feed other cria's in need, an attribute difficult to find in the alpaca.

This is a quality dam for our breeding program. Juliette will make the needed addition to our foundation with her lineage, fiber quality and EPD package. She is progeny of Derwydd El Nino's Accoyo Manchu and is now bred to our Majestic's "Man".
When we want to bring in outside genetics for any given fiber trait, Juliette is our go to girl. She is a great mother, breeds easily, holds her weight, and will nurse other's crias. Her daughter Destony also inherited this valuable nursing trait.
Juliette's EPDs are more than respectable. She is in Alpaca Owners Association EPD data base 1% to 15% trait rankings. 1% in any one trait is a rare animal when you consider the hundreds of thousand alpacas in the United States. When we bought her we did not know her EPDs and bought her for her ability to bring fiber length and density offspring to compliment our EPD focus. Juliette's fiber weight EPD is in the 5% at +0.777, which indicates her offspring will have nearly a pound more fiber than Juliette. We have now had 3 cria out of her, each have beautiful fiber, no conformation faults, so she is turning out to be a very valuable foundation dam.
Juliette is of substantial stature and bone. This will be a positive characteristic for her breeding longevity. She should have years more of production. Renaissance Ridge description of Juliette reads "Full Peruvian 3/4 Accoyo well proportioned female with strong conformation". All of Juliette's offspring have done well in the show ring with one making a respectable showing at the 2015 Futurity.
A look at Juliette's histogram shows she has some exceptional fiber character traits. Her staple length is quite good. It does no good to have fine fiber is it's length is so short as to make it impossible to truly utilize. Her fineness is above average. Juliette last cria, Rembrandt's River Wild is out of FDA Rembrandt by El Nino, whose EPD for SD is in the 1% club, so this pairing has resulted in superior EPDs in this offspring. If Juliette has a fault in her Trait profile it is in SD of AFD. Hence, the breeding to Rembrandt. Otherwise, Juliette's fiber trait EPD values are overall better than about 90% of the national herd. It is one thing to have these superior traits in one trait but not in 6 traits. Combine Juliette's EPDs with Rembrandt's and you can see the kind of progeny that resulted in River Wild. Take a look at her 2018 EPD trait profile under the above icon for EPDs.
