Below is a write up from Jim Watts, MV. Sc, Ph.D:

He is a rather special male!!!

Jim Watts analysis:

The 14 month old alpaca, FDA Rembrandt, has high levels of fiber density and fiber length. The density reading of 67.7 follicles per square millimeter will be lower when the animal reaches mature body size, but not sufficient to alter the fact that it is a high density animal.

"Spots" is a new comer to the appaloosa alpaca scene. Spots' appaloosa gene comes from NGG Lional-- a known appaloosa carrier that has been well-proven in Canada but is rather rare in the United States. In the past... in the United States... the appy program has been focused on achieving the spots which required certain genetic combinations, but unfortunately... not always best known for outstanding fleece qualities.

Sephora is a gorgeous STUD female and lives true to her name, "Stunning" Sephora. She has great bone substance, full coverage, and a long stapled fleece with brightness and uniformity. Sephora even at age 8, as a breeding female has stats we love. Take a look at her histogram for this year-- AFD 19.0 SD 3.9 CV 20.4% >30 1.4% Royal fineness @ age 8! No surprise given her great genetics: El Nino, Caligula, Hemingway and Legacy.

Sephora's is a multi-champion producer. 2015 daughter, Charlotte, now has 2 championships under her belt, RCC at OABA and CC at VAOBA!

2017 daughter, Chenelle, took her first banner 2018-- CABA / Palooza Color Champion. Chenelle is sired by Starshire's Vicente and was born a healthy 21 lb. pound fawn over black! In October 2017, Sephora and her daughter Chenelle joined the Rare Gem Alpaca foundation herd (co-owned with Diamond Valley Alpacas). These girls are exactly what we look for in our foundation-- elite-fleece-- lasting fineness, density, temperament, proven champion pedigree producers.

AND, the the icing on the cake with these girls?! Versatility-- these girls can take a color program in many different directions. When bred to color, Sephora has thrown color. Bred to white, she produced white. What fun we will have with these girls!!
