We are very pleased to get this girls EPDs. All EPDs will compliment our breeding program with staple length and fiber weight. We bought Catarina to integrate increased density into our foundation herd. Slow but steady progress is occurring here at Colusa Riverside in the goal to produce the best fiber & EPDs in the world of Alpacas. We strive to promote every animals potential to pass on positive fiber traits to each and every offspring. Visit us virtually or in person to buy, learn or see our alpacas and their EPDS. Catarina has been bred to MSA Hemintway's Bogart. Cat's phenotype will be greatly accented with Bogart's genetic contribution of fineness, uniformity and longevity of fineness.
Catarina last cria was out of Snowmass RRoyal Stars. This pairing was done to improve the fiber density in our fiber foundation herd. Royal Stars has a skin biopsy of 78 which at present is considered to be the 4th best in the nation. Cat's histogram is certainly positive. Her sta

COLUSA RIVERSIDE ALPACAS IS SO PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THE PURCHASE OF 2/3rd INTEREST IN THIS AMAZING HERDSIRE. What can you say about Hemingway's Bogart other than he is renowned and a one of a kind potent herdsire. Bogies EPDs rival the best in the world in nearly every fiber trait. Bogart could challenge any young stud head to head for histogram results. After 13 years, his longevity is exemplary at 22 microns after 13 years of service to the industry.
Bogart has 96 offspring, he is 13 years of age and as potent as ever. Bogart is the Son of Sire MSA Hemingway G171 and the Accoyo Dam Macara 4652. We will be offering an opportunity to integrate some of the best EPDs in world into your herd with the help of Open Herd Auction. This celebration breeding offer will last through June 31, 2015. Bring your best girl and create an offspring of exceptional quality. We are very proud to add this Hemingway son, to our growing list of outstanding string of white herdsires. Bogie is ren
This female brings together Mom's lineage of Caliente and Dad's Lineage of Hemingway. She will prove to be a promising foundation dam for us or for a lucky buyer. Faith's dam Catarina has density and fineness and so does her sire. Mom Catarina, has one of the most well rounded EPD pictures for trait improvement in our herd and also when compared to the national herd. Faith has this same well rounded histogram and EPD trait portrait. Her EPD for staple length is a rank of 20%. So, in combination with her fineness values in the 5% to 15% ranges this makes an ideal fiber character trait she will pass on to her offspring. Hemingway's Bogart stamps all of his offspring with longevity of fineness. Dam Caterina at age 12 is 23 microns for AFD. Bogart's AFD at age 18 is 22, SD of 4 and the same CV. This is longevity Faith has no doubt inherited.
Faiths fiber is extremely fine, she has excellent staple length, her luster and handle are also nice. She is quite dense with few guard hairs. You can see from her fleece pictures on this page she has luster, broad crimp, staple bundles, and good density. Faith is the whole package from both actual fiber trait quality and the genetic predictability to pass those favorable traits to her offspring.
Faith is presently bred to our elite stud, Majestic's A Man Among Men. She was an easy breeder at age 2 years. Faith is 3rd generation in our breeding program of white alpacas. Her 2018 EPD picture is very desirable for a seed stock dam. I am especially pleased with the fineness traits with no loss of staple length. See them below.
