Description

We will be starting our Spring breeding season without Rico. It will be an emotional time. However, take a look at Romeo Suave, San Simeon Suave and our other herdsires. We are still committed to giving you the best.

Today (12/8/2011) was a very sad day at North Plains Alpacas, we said goodbye to Rico. He died early this morning of congestive heart failure. We thank the Lord for such a gift, and so thankful for the offspring we have and the ones coming in 2012!

Take a look at Rico's final histogram, 2011.
DDF Peruvian Rico Suave is an excellent example of long lasting fineness. Age 7 Rico's micron is at 17.1, SD 3.3, CV 19.3, %>30 0.4% and age 8, Rico still has a micron of 17.1, SD 3.5, CV 20.5, %>30 0.5, and now at age 10 (2010 testing), Rico's micron is 16.6, SD 3.3, CV 19.9, %>30 .05%...WOW!

In 2008 we did a skin biopsy on Rico and the results are fantastic, "I found no fibers above 30 microns, which is unheard of, " states Dr. Norm Evans, "This male is the whole package based on my stats. He appears to have every desirable genetic trait that this industry is looking for. As the whole package, Rico Suave tests in the top 1% of near 1800 huacayas that I have tested." This is outstanding!

With his pedigree consisting of 6Peruvian Accoyo Elite and Peruvian Hemingway, you cannot go wrong with a breeding to Rico Suave.

RICO HAS 102 REGISTERED OFFSPRING.

Co-owned with Richard & Lisa Cruanas of LaFinca Alpacas, and Diana Garrett & Karl Clark of Moody Hills Farm.
