Nice boy! And in very good shape for his 15 years. Still frisky, still able to breed.

Here are his 2016 EPD results:
AFD, value —.047, likely to give cria a finer fleece
SDAFD, value +.062, likely to give cria a slightly less uniform fleece
Spin Fineness, value +.024, like to add slightly to SF
%F>30, value —3.2, likely to produce cria with less micron >30
Mean Curvature, value +.023, likely to add slightly to curve
SDMC, value +.333, likely to add to uniformity of curve
%Medullation, value +1.129, likely to add some medullation
Mean Staple Length, value +1.492, likely to add to staple length
Fleece Weight, value +.935, likely to add to fleece weight
Birth Weight, value +.247, likely to add to birth weight
Not too shabby for a 15-year-old!

If you buy Duncan, we will bring him to WSU for a breeding soundness exam and an updated health check. That is included in his price. If he doesn't check out, you don't buy, and no money will be exchanged. Or you will be given a full refund if you have paid. Promise!

Duncan has packed nearly 12 lbs. of dense fleece on his compact frame in his earlier years. Now 13 years old, he's still shearing heavy. His histogram is very decent for his age. There's no doubt about the improvement he's made on the girls he's been bred to by putting LOTS more crimpy fleece and a very pretty head on each of his babies.

We are very pleased to say that Premier Alpacas (of Absolute and Rubio fame) has used Duncan. Their website states they have "incorporated these noteworthy bloodlines in our breeding program" of which Duncan is one. That is a huge compliment. Thank you!

Duncan's qualities in a nutshell:
CALIGULA genetics in dark fawn
Handsome head: short-muzzled, triangular
Compact at 150# and 35 inches at withers
Very proud and erect
Respectful and easy to handle
Shears HEAVY fleece weights
Improves fleece character, micron, shear weight
Early maturity (heritable trait)

His DRIVE-BY stud fee is $400. For a breeding that includes 2 months boarding and 5 ultrasounds at WSU (valued at $250) and the expertise of Dr. Tibary at WSU, with travel back and forth to WSU, add $350. We provide a large quarantine pen for your female and cria. For their protection, they are not mixed with our animals or any other visiting animals.

An amazing price and not a thing wrong with her; we are REALLY motivated to sell some alpacas to make room in the barn. Trying to downsize! Add $25...

Because of his strong micron we have sadly decided to sell him as a non-breeding fiber boy. We were actually surprised at his histogram in 2015 at 22 ...
