ARI# 35265931 | DOB: 7/15/2014
O are we ever excited about Trebicon! This fella is the real deal. He is a handsome Grey all buttoned up with a white Tuxedo in the front. He is absolutely stunning. His fineness for Grey is incredible.

His fleece has aged beautifully. It is loaded with character, shine, and crimp. Just look at his mean curvature numbers! His density is evident just looking at him. His fleece has aged well and has maintained character with each passing year. He really shows some of the best qualities of his...

Description

Eclipse's genetics are very exciting. Her grand sire is the great Snowmass Sterling Legend who was sold to a breeder in Germany. Finding his genetics are tough and so obtaining a breeding from one of his offspring, Sterling Rose, was a no-brainer. Sterling Rose is in the top 1% in EPD's for fineness. Eclipse has the same striking white markings on her face that he does.

Her Dam is a PC Running Late granddaughter out of our Bay Black PC Running Late son. Champagne exhibited a gorgeous fleece and was set to be a foundation female for our herd for years to come. However, she passed during a complication in her next pregnancy and Eclipse turned out to be her only offspring ... what a sad day at our farm.

Eclipse has some very interesting color patterns. She would probably be classified as an indefinite as she has white fibers throughout her fleece. The white fibers add a beautiful shimmer to the fleece that is very unique. She clearly has some interesting color genetics with grey being a distinct possibility.

Eclipse had her first cria in 2019! She gave us exactly what we were wanting ... a medium rose grey girl from Avatar! We knew she would give us some color! Early indications from Syndicate, is that she will live up to her incredible lineage!

Eclipse is expecting her 2nd cria in 2020. This time matched with Trebicon, who seems to throw gray every chance he gets!

*** Update ***

Number two is here and he has the absolute corner market on cuteness. We've had 3 farm visits in his first 2 days alive, and everyone walks away saying - "Oh, Wow!" He just has the look ... and if you know alpacas, you know what I'm talking about. A Rose Grey boy with all that macho ... Woohoo.
