Skin Biopsy by Dr. Evans

My Peruvian Equador

Huacaya, Male, Proven, Light Fawn, Full Peruvian
ARI# 817854 | DOB: 2/21/2000
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 breedin...

Rincon Cloud daughter!

Rainier's Nala Cloud

Huacaya, Female, Proven, Medium Silver Grey, Full Chilean
ARI# 31094825 | DOB: 7/18/2009
Nala is one of two girls on our farm sired by the spectacular 2005 AOBA Grey Color Champion, Emerald Farm's Rincon Cloud, son of Crescent Moon's Rayo De Sol, who is himself the son of the gorgeous grey, Patagonia's Danko. Nala's dam, Grand River Cheila, has been a rock solid foundation dam for Rainier Alpacas, consistently producing show-ring and herdsire quality crias.

Nala is very easy to handle for herd health, but loves to strut her stuff in the pastures! This girl is unmistakably a Rinc...

Description


Fellaman is a lovely fiber gelding and a full sibling to Landmark Farm's Autumn Jewel, who sold in April 2016.

Fellaman was 19 pounds at birth and gained 8 pounds in his first 10 days! He had a high IgG of 2581 and was drinking water at 9 days of age! No, he was not playing in it. He was sucking it down and swallowing! He was eating supplement at one month. Very precocious little boy!

Fellaman has very correct conformation. His fleece is fine with small zipper crimp. He has excellent density, coverage, and staple length. When he was first sheared at 7 weeks of age, his blanket and neck fiber weighed over a pound! He has a very pretty head and heavily-fibered face with adorable ear tufts! He has a nice temperament and is very manageable for herd health.

His coloring totally surprised us! We registered him as a light brown since his fleece at the skin was the exact same color as it was at the tips when he was born. But the fleece that grew in between birth and his first shearing at 7 weeks came in as a much darker band. He was dark brown! He is the first dark brown or bay black that we have had born that was light brown at the tips but not dark at the skin from birth. His color is continuing to change. His grandmother was born brown and greyed out, and his dam is grey. The last we color checked him, he is now a dark modern rose grey! It is always fun watching what you will end up with when you have bay blacks and browns born out of greys!

Fellaman is one of six Equador offspring born on our farm. Equador's fiber is still just barely over 23 microns at almost 17 years of age!
