This is the boy born while we were at the 2018 Gold Country Gathering. We all thought he was going to be "lavender", but if you look close the new fleece is actually a gorgeous light silver grey! And it's already showing some really nice organization and bundling... we can't wait to see how it grows out:)

I've been calling this boy "stud muffin" for a couple of reasons. First he's a nice bulky boy with a wide stance and early genital development. Then there is his behavior... from an early age he's clearly the alpha male investigating everything that goes on and has high interest in the open girls. Unlike most young males who climb on the cushed girls anywhere (back, neck, head, tail), this boy knows where he needs to be... the back end. And he's persistent... attempting to mount the standing girls. And notably, he leaves the bred girls alone!

Unfortunately, we didn't get pre/post shearing pix but his bright light silver fleece just glows in the sun:)

Fast forward to the Gold Country Gathering Alpaca Show and bothe halter and fleece judges were wowed by his fleece! At just a year of age, his secondary follicles are still coming in, but his extreme fineness and uniformity took him to first place in halter and had Walking Judge Wini Lebrecque happily fondling it! Judge Amanda VandenBosch commented on his very fine and uniform fleece and beautiful wide, square, upright, balanced frame.
