What can you say about Hemingway's Bogart other than he is renowned, WAS a one of a kind potent herdsire. Bogie's EPDs rival the best in the world. Bogart could challenge any young stud head to head for histogram results. After 18 years, his longevity is exemplary with his 2019 histogram at 22 AFD and an SD of 4.0 and CV of 17. Bogart is the direct descendant and on of Sire MSA Hemingway G171.

We are very proud to have added this Hemingway son, to our small but genetically mighty white ...

This female brings together Mom's lineage of Caliente and Dad's Lineage of Hemingway. She will prove to be a promising foundation dam for us or for a lucky buyer. Faith's dam Catarina has density and fineness and so does her sire. Mom Catarina, has one of the most well rounded genetic pictures for trait improvement in our herd and also when much better than the national herd. Faith has this same well rounded histogram and EPD trait profile. Her EPD for staple length is a rank of 20%. So, in combination with her fineness values in the 5% to 15% ranges this makes an ideal fiber character trait she will pass on to her offspring. Hemingway's Bogart stamps all of his offspring with longevity of fineness. Dam Caterina at age 13 is 23 microns for AFD. Bogart's AFD at age 19 is 22, SD of 4 and the same CV. This is longevity Faith has no doubt inherited.

Faith's fiber is extremely fine, she has excellent staple length, her luster and handle are also nice. She is quite dense with few guard hairs. You can see from her fleece pictures on this page she has luster, broad crimp, staple bundles, and good density. Faith is the whole package from both actual fiber trait quality and the genetic predictability to pass those favorable traits to her offspring.

Faith is presently bred to our new Stud Snow Diamond Chateau Cerise. Chateau's will improve her offspring even more. Faith is an easy breeder at age 4 years. Faith is 3rd generation in our breeding program of white alpacas. Her EPD picture is very desirable for a foundation dam. I am especially pleased with the fineness traits with no loss of staple length. It is very difficult to get grade 1 fineness and excellent staple length together, we have been breeding for that combination over the past 5 years. This combination is now present in our new stud Chateau Cerise and in most of our farms offspring.
