William is a promising Jr. Herdsire with ultra fine fleece. He is rather laid back and mellow most of the time, and has always been very good about letting me pick up his feet, and stands calmly for shots.
As a cria William was registered as a white, since at the time he was, but as he’s aged he has gradually developed into a tuxedo rose grey. Although there aren’t any readily noticeable greys in his lineage, both his maternal uncle and half-sister are greys - the latter being a developing modern rose grey. Additionally, his sire has thrown color, and his dam's heritage is speckled with browns and blacks, so it may be safe to assume William will throw color.
Names in Prince William's pedigree on his sire's side include: Xanadu P Placido ('06 MOPACA Get of Sire), Snowmass Highland Bell ('06 Great Western Alpaca Show Produce of Dam), Snowmaster (American bred alpaca reimported to Peru), Presidio (7X Get of Sire), and Caligula. On his dam's side: Invincible ('03 Futurity Champion), Legacy (1/2 interest sold for $750,000), Pendragon of Peru (placed 1st at AOBA National Show '00 and 2nd at Futurity in '02), Hemingway, and 5Peruvian Camelot (Western Ohio Triple Crown Get of Sire).
Regarding conformation, Prince William has a strong frame and has had perfectly straight legs since birth. His fleece isn’t as dense as some, but he has a long staple length of 123.8mm to make up for it. Prince William has excellent coverage that goes all the way down to his toes, with a total shearing weight of 5.44 lbs and a 3 lb blanket. His percentage of medullated fibers isn’t bad if you consider he’s actually grey.
