Fast forward to spring 2018. Both Menagerie Hill Ranch and Skydance Ranch have a bunch of Kit Carson cria on the ground. Until our joint purchase of KC, almost all of his (approximately 28) registered cria came from the Renaissance Ridge breeding program. So this is his first real test of what he can do with outside genetics. The first thing we noticed about his cria is the outstanding vigor, and once dry the brightness of the fleece! And the fleece character is no slouch either. As the cria have grown, we're seeing excellent early density and crimp, glowing brightness, and yummy softness/hand. Oh and the depth of color! Check out the pix of some of our first cria in all their dusty glory.

Spring 2017 News Flash!!! KC multichamp daughter 4-Sight's Centerfold just took 1st and Color Champion at the 2017 Futurity, GWAS and the CABA Classic! That's six Color Championships to date for this 2 - year old:) She's undefeated in the ring!!! And RR Lancelot took two more Color Championships in Halter and Walking Fleece at the 2017 CA Classic!

His kids still win big in the ring...2016 Gold Country Gathering KC son Crawford won RCC, Grey Male; KC daughter Centerfold won Color Championship, grey female; AND KC son won Black Color Championship (RR Lancelot). And Centerfold won 1st and Color Championship at the 2016 Alpaca Breeders Invitational. To date we've counted at least 8 of his offspring have won RCC or Color Championships!

KC took his first championship at 8 months of age. Since then, his fleece has maintained its length and fineness and he remains one of the best grey males in the country.

If you have a look at his Watt follicle testing results, the reasons will be obvious. The mix of black and white fibers in his grey is homogeneous in micron. He is the only alpaca, male or female, that carries the best characteristics of the Snowmass Peruvian Casanova and Guns n Roses lines. His production has not disappointed with multiple championships among his offspring.

His follicle density testing by Ian Watt is outstanding at his sampling at 2 years of age:

Density: 57.9/mm2
Secondary: Primary fiber ratio: 9.8:1

In-skin primary fiber diameter: 22.3 micron SD 3.2
In-skin secondary fiberdiameter: 13.7 micron SD 2.5

Comments:
"High density coupled with an excellent set of numbers for the secondary fiber population give this male potential as a significant sire in his color group. a group not known for its uniformity within each fiber population.
This is a significant animal for silver grey alpacas, where the black fibers tend to be very strong in micron and vary across the staple in most alpacas of this colour".
