This year saw 2018 daughter Ebonni Carson win CC in walking fleece (TB) at the Gold Country Gathering under Wini Labrecque! We're so in love with all his cria, but this one is truly special:)
It's early 2019 and his batch of fall cria are growing like weeds! There are two tux silver greys and a true black, all very fine, bright, dense and crimpy with amazing staple length. We've nicknamed one of them "Studmuffin" for his early interest in the girls and his well endowed genitals. We're really liking what KC did with these dams and can't wait to show them in the fall.
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. Oh and let's not forget personality... these cria are among the most laid back and easiest to train that we have produced!
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. His production has not disappointed with multiple championships among his offspring. To date we've counted at least 8 of his offspring have won RCC or Color Championships! Among the most recent are RR Crawford, RR Lancelot, and 4-Sight's Centerfold.
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 follicle density testing by Ian Watt is outstanding at his sampling at 2 years of age:
Secondary: Primary fiber ratio: 9.8:1
In-skin primary fiber diameter: 22.3 micron SD 3.2
In-skin secondary fiber diameter: 13.7 micron SD 2.5
"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".
