Bidding Info


Escher, named after the well-known artist M.C. Escher, is a handsome macho with impressive genetics and extreme appaloosa markings. Escher's fiber is nothing short of luscious with incredible fineness (16.1 as a 3 year old). Combine that fineness with high frequency, high amplitude bundling and you have incredibly nice fiber. Escher's EPDs are quite impressive, including an AFD of -1.498, ranking him 1402 of 21089 in the nation!

His sire, 6 Peruvian Ninaya, was hand selected in 1998 by Dr. Julio Sumar, who considered him one of the top males available to be imported from Peru. Ninaya is known for stamping his offspring with his extremely dense fleece, well-defined crimp, and refined hand. Escher's dam, Derwydd Luciano's Luluy, added great staple length and fineness to his overall fiber quality.

Escher's grandsire on his dam's side is El R Peruvian Luciano a GREY full Alianza herdsire who has produced many champions. Luluy's dam, Fista, (3/4 Accoyo) has also produced champions. So Escher certainly carries the GENETICS to produce exceptional offspring.

If you appreciate the uniqueness of appaloosas and would like to add to or expand your selection, Escher is not one to miss.

Escher is now proudly co-owned with Morning Beckons Alpaca Farm in Connecticut.
