A Paca Fun's Super Sonic

Huacaya, Male, Proven, Medium Silver Grey
ARI# 32284911 | DOB: 5/31/2011
A Paca Fun's Super Sonic is the culmination of 3 generations of breeding for elite gray. Beyond his eye appeal, and solid conformation, Sonic's fleece is exceptional. His fleece is dense, fine and displays a "3 dimensional crimp style" not often seen in grays. It also exhibits extreme uniformity of color, with most of the individual fibers being actually gray (as opposed to a mixture of black and white). All of this in combination makes Sonic one of the best total package gray males we have ...

Bidding Info

Description

76 mm follicle density 9.3:1 SP Ratio the 3rd densest gray ever tested by Alpaca Consulting as of 2020. HE was just bumped to 3rd by his son Holy Smoke!

This boy is our "Game Changer" in our breeding program. If you were color blind his fleece could compete with even the nicest white. Very uniform in color with a hand to die for. And style? did you say style!!!

His staple has been an issue in management as his fleece is so long by show season that it is drapey. This male is here for the long haul in our breeding program and possibly touts the best gray genetics on the west coast.

He is perfect in his conformation, his histogram touts excellent fineness and uniformity. His silver gray color is deep and rich. His phenotype is everything we are looking for. His first fleece is part of the elite A Paca Fun traveling fleece show. Shift is the epitome of the next generation of gray fleece!
