Bidding Info


Chaccuna is the one that really jump started our light breeding program. Her direct descendants carry the same density and lingering fineness she possesses. Also, all their bites have maintained their perfection through the years.

GENETICS: Chaccuna is a 5Peruvian Chaccu daughter and PPeruvian Vengador granddaughter.

MEASURABLE FLEECE QUALITIES: This is where Chaccuna excels and what keeps her at the top of our Huacaya foundation female list. Talk about lingering fineness. At 12 years old her histogram results are note worthy: AFD 25.8, SD 4.9, CV 18.8 , SF 24.7, %>30 15.

Then there are her EPD (Expected Progeny Differences) results as a 12 year old production female:

Trait Value Acc Rank
AFD -0.938 0.377 3080 of 27776 In the top 11% in expectation for improving fineness*

SDAFD -0.33 0.376 1817 of 27776 In the top 7% in expectation for lowering micron*

%F>30 -4.5 0.387 2265 of 27776 In the top 8% in expectation for improving uniformity*

MC 2.551 0.376 1955 of 27776 In the top 7% in expectations to create higher frequency of crimp*

%M -1.768 0.186 3131 of 27776 In the top 11% in the expectation to reduce overall fiber medullation*

*than the breed average for all huacaya females and all colors

Let' see, has this carried through to her progeny? I would say so....

Here are the results for Chaccuna's beige son (ChaccuLatte) at age seven. He is standing stud at our ranch:

Top 3% AFD -1.877 0.425 238 of 14637
Top 3% SF -1.798 0.448 330 of 14637

Do these great traits coming down from Chaccuna pass through her offspring? The answer is yes.
Here are the "stats" for Latte's offspring:

Check out these EPD results at 4 years old:

Top 3% SF -1.592 (#739 of 27776)
Top 4% %F>30 -5.501 (#1151 of 27776)

Latte's 2010 white female "Latte's Kizmet" is an absolute knock-out. Her fleece is exhibiting all of Latte's positive characteristics...high frequency and amplitude and dense with tight bundling. Her 2011 histogram report: AFD 17.6, SD 4.6, CV 25.9, %>30u 1.5

Latte's 2012 light fawn male is the "spitten image" of his sire. Absolutely gorgeous fiber...fine, high frequency and amplitude with tight bundling.
