We're so excited to have him back and are looking forward to showing his youngsters at the Gold Country Gathering this fall!
Recently at the 2021 Gold Country Gathering, our first show in two years, son MHAR Aurelio Carson won RC in Walking Fleece! Judge Cheryl Gehly comment on his fineness, uniformity across primaries/secondaries and lack of guard hair! Check out his 2020 cria fleece (6 months). The photo doesn't do it justice as it rivals dad's for brightness and character!
2019 saw 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:)
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 18 of his offspring have won RCC or Color Championships! Among the most recent are RR Crawford, RR Lancelot, 4-Sight's Centerfold, MHAR's Ebonni Carson and MHAR Aurelio Carson.
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 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 .... 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.
