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!!!
After standing for nine years on Magical Farms' Herdsire Row, My Peruvian Equador's genetics are now a bit closer to farms in the Southeast at a reduced price.
Equador 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. Epifania is also the dam of two other Magical herdsires, Peruvian Jeronimo and Peruvian Accipiter.
Equador is a very proud male with excellent presence and loves to showboat and pose for the camera at 17 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, rose grey color champion MFI Nightshade, MFI Peruvian Rhapsody, and MFI Charlene, a gorgeous true black female! 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!
Equador produces outstanding offspring in an array of colors from black, silver and rose grey, brown and fawn, to white. Check out his six offspring that have been born at our farm. Equador is a male to include in your high-end colored breeding program!
We are flexible with arrangements, so just give us a call and ask!
