Spotted Fox, with his appaloosa markings, caught our eye because we are so enamored with huacaya appaloosas. His dam, Tell Sweet Petunia, comes from a Canadian herd long noted for their efforts to improve quality with each and every breeding. They are also known for having some fantastic appaloosa alpacas. At his farm of origin, Wisdom of the Fox, the Mortis are striving to move fiber quality to higher levels using fiber statistics and discriminant pairings.
As a two-year-old Petunia's skin biopsy produced the following information: Density: 68.0; S/P Ratio: 13.5; AFD Primaries: 34.3 microns; AFD Secondaries: 24.2 microns. As a three-year-old, Petunia's fiber analysis was this: Third Shearing - AFD: 26.0 microns; SD: 4.9 microns; CV: 18.9 %; SF: 24.8 microns; CF: 83.9%. These results are significantly better than the North American average.
The sire of Spotted Fox is Havana's Peruvian Cohiba. Cohiba comes from some well-known lines. His sire is Black Peruvian Royal Forest, a son of Pperuvian Royal Fawn. Cohiba's dam is My Peruvian Havana, who was sired by Peruvian Dakotia, a son of Peruvian Bueno.
