Cloud Hollow's Tsunami

Tsunami presents the ultimate package in prepotent, vicuna fine color genetics. She is a daughter of KF Aureus Magnus, who was Reserve Champion at the 2005 North American Alpaca Show and took a 2nd at The Futurity in 2005 as well. Her dam, Tamara, is a world class female with rare, prepotent genetics who is maintaining fineness and excellent uniformity with age. At 6 years old, Tamara had an AFD of 22.4 and CV of 19.3, as a Proven breeding female receiving the highest quality nutrition! Tamara is a daughter of DPA Peruvian Powerplay (son of PPeruvian Timoteo), 2x Reserve Champion and sire of champions, and granddaughter of the great 4P Wira Cocha. The combined power of these elite genetics make Tsunami an ideal female for any elite breeding program looking for fineness, density and uniformity that maintain with age.
The power of her maternal genetics are exhibited in her maternal brother, Nova's Tutankhamun of Cloud Hollow, who just took 1st in a full class at the North American in a class judged by Jude Anderson. She said that "as soon as I saw him walk out, I knew he was the one to beat". He exemplifies the quality of the crias that Tsunami is capable of producing if bred to herdsires of the same caliber of his sire: Snowmass Nova, 2005 Herdsire of the Year.
She has produced an outstanding true black male cria, who is not included with her, and will be making his show debut at the North American in 2012. He just begins to scratch the surface of what this girls Proven, Potent & Predictable genetics are capable of producing.
Another consistent crinkle girl! And she holds the distinction of holding our farm record for lowest SD and CV 3.5 and 15.8 from mid side, though its her grid that is truly impressive 3.7 and 17.7! This is means most of her blanket should sort into the same grade, and her primary and secondary fibers are essentially the same in micron and style. And while she has no visible crimp, she has a high curvature of 41.9, excellent for processing. Plus, she is one of our heaviest shearing females, producing nearly 8lbs annually.
Extreme uniformity + fine fiber + high curve + high shear weight = ideal commercial fiber producer!
