What can you say about Hemingway's Bogart other than he is renowned, a one of a kind potent herdsire. Bogie's EPDs rival the best in the world. Bogart could challenge any young stud head to head for histogram results. After 18 years, his longevity is exemplary at 22 microns after 16 years of service to the industry. This potent Sire has 119 offspring from across the nation. He is still breeding but if you want this amazing bloodline into your herd his age certainly could prohibit breeding ...

This Jumanji son has it all. Most importantly a winning show record for both fleece and halter. We purchased A Man Among Men at the 2016 futurity and he has been winning every since. His record as a juvenile is unmatched, starting with the 2016 Futurity and ending with being in the running for Supreme Champion at the 2017 AOA Nationals.

This female brings together Mom's lineage of Caliente and Dad's Lineage of Hemingway. She will prove to be a promising foundation dam for us or for a lucky buyer. Faith's dam Catarina has density and fineness and so does her sire. Mom Catarina, has one of the most well rounded EPD pictures for trait improvement in our herd and also when compared to the national herd. Faith has this same well rounded histogram and EPD trait portrait. Her EPD for staple length is a rank of 20%. So, in combination with her fineness values in the 5% to 15% ranges this makes an ideal fiber character trait she will pass on to her offspring. Hemingway's Bogart stamps all of his offspring with longevity of fineness. Dam Caterina at age 12 is 23 microns for AFD. Bogart's AFD at age 18 is 22, SD of 4 and the same CV. This is longevity Faith has no doubt inherited.

Faiths fiber is extremely fine, she has excellent staple length, her luster and handle are also nice. She is quite dense with few guard hairs. You can see from her fleece pictures on this page she has luster, broad crimp, staple bundles, and good density. Faith is the whole package from both actual fiber trait quality and the genetic predictability to pass those favorable traits to her offspring.

Faith is presently bred to our elite stud, Majestic's A Man Among Men. She was an easy breeder at age 2 years. Faith is 3rd generation in our breeding program of white alpacas. Her 2018 EPD picture is very desirable for a seed stock dam. I am especially pleased with the fineness traits with no loss of staple length. See them below.
