Inca was clearly outstanding in his ability to produce exceptional offspring. Inca's cria have won countless awards in the show-ring over the years and Inca himself won many many first place "Get of Sire" awards. As they say, "the proof is in the pudding".

We are thrilled and honored to be hosting Piccard at our ranch! Carefully bred and selected by Aero Ranch, this male has EVERYTHING we are looking for in our breeding program! Incredible, uniform fleece with a hand to die for, and phenotypically correct in every way!

Piccard is sired by the legendary PPerucian Inca. Exhibiting a classic luscious fleece style he also produces color! Selectively bred, Piccard has produced many blue ribbon winning offspring! We believed this male would take our suri program to the next level and that is exactly what he is doing, just look at his offspring!

Piccard is closed to outside breedings!

His locks are stunning! He even took a first at the AOA National Fleece show with his 11th fleece!

Watch for his 2019 crias! He is still knocking it out of the park!
So far --
one brown female!
one white female!
one brown male with a white nose!
