For those who need the scientific stats provided by skin biopsy to back up the claim of lingering fineness, here they are!
In June 2012, we had then 12-year-old My Peruvian Equador evaluated by Dr. Norm Evans, who states that "Equador's strong fiber traits are his fiber density, cluster regularity, S/P ratio, gland density, and fineness. He shows few fibers over 30 microns. This male is loaded with prepotent male genetic fiber traits that have been associated with champions. Consider breeding him to biopsied females to maximize his genetic potential." His numbers: Density 55, S/P ratio 13.2 to 1, Gland Density level 3 of 4, Av. secondary fiber diameter 22.9 microns, Av. primary fiber diameter 29.9 microns for a variation of ONLY 7.0 microns!! This is at TWELVE years of age!! UPDATE: 2016 AFD at SIXTEEN years of age is 22.3 microns!!! Now that is lingering fineness!!!
Equador stood for nine years on Magical Farms' Herdsire Row. He is the product of crossing the legendary Peruvian Dakotia and PPeruvian Epifania. Dakotia is the son of Peruvian Bueno, and a grandson of Peruvian Don Julio.
Equador is a very proud male with excellent presence and loves to showboat and pose for the camera at 18 years of age! He has a very gentle temperament and passes along his beautiful phenotype and advanced fleece characteristics to his offspring, such as multiple champion MFI Peruvian Palace Guard and rose grey color champion MFI Nightshade! He produces outstanding offspring in an array of colors from black, silver and rose grey, brown and fawn, to white. Equador's crias are very dense and heavily fibered, all the way down to their toes. He has certainly improved on the fineness and density in our herd!
Because of Equador's age, we will no longer take him off the farm. Breedings will be drive-by only in a bio-secure pen. Visiting females can be kept up to two nights, for two exposures. Because we will no longer consign Equador, or keep females for full farm breedings, his stud fee has been greatly reduced to only $450.
We are flexible with arrangements, so just give us a call and ask!
