Description

Golden Thunder was the most-talked-about lot offered in the 2011 AOBA National Auction, and one look will tell you why. With his rich, dense, abundant fleece on a solid frame, strong typey head, stately bearing and air of confidence, Thunder definitely stands out in a crowd.

His beautiful, well nourished fiber has an incredibly soft handle and well defined crimp that is consistent throughout the staple and from head to toe. His first-year histogram showed an AFD of 16.5, and his 2011 AFD was 18.1.

Thunder's sire is Sunset Hills Farm Andean Gold, who -- at almost 9 years of age -- took a Color Champion banner (his 9th) AND the prestigious Judges' Choice award at the 2011 Buckeye Show. Andean Gold's offspring have had fine, crimpy and dense fleece that shows its best as the years progress, never losing their fineness.

Thunder's dam is Natilie, who has consistently produced very fine and crimpy- fleeced alpacas who have done extremely well in the show ring.

Golden Thunder himself has collected a whopping 11 Color Championships, two Reserve Color Championships and the Judge's Choice Award.
