Light Rose Grey, 829619, 3/4 Chilean, 1/4 Peruvian
Congratulations to Susan and Scott Mikulecky of Alpaca Annuals, our partners in Avatar! They have been specializing in grey since 2003 and doing it spectacularly.
Avatar has wonderful crimpy, dense, and fine fleece, but what truly separates him from the other outstanding herd sires is his phenomenal handle - due only in part to the exceptional uniformity of his fleece. Cameron Holt, AOBA Senior Judge Trainer and world wide fiber expert, gave the following scores to Avatar's fleece: Fineness: 15 out of 15 ; Handle: 5 out of 5 ; Uniformity of micron: 7 out of 8 ; Crimp: 8.5 out of 10 ; Density: 3 out of 5 ; Brightness: 8 out of 10 ; Lack of medullation: 8 out of 10. (Scores are given without regard to color).
Avatar's Stars (kids) had accumulated 41 Championships & 75 Blue Ribbons as of early 2011. . . . I need to update this! His offspring's most recent accomplishments include Delphi's Avella, 2017 AOA National grey female halter champion; Delphi's Aviva, 2016
Avella is a beautiful rose grey girl out of Avatar. Like her sire, she is uniform, bright, soft handle, fine and correct in her conformation. She has lovely coverage and quite typey. We are looking forward to the end of show season so that we can get this girl bred! Look for great things to come.
