Description

To say that Bocelli holds a special place in my heart would be an understatement. He was produced by Ernie and Denise Gamroth at Battle River Alpacas, and his quality is a testament to their breeding program. His sire is none other than Hummingherd's Rum Runner, a PC Running Late son; and his dam is BR Belicia, whose maternal line is well known for the consistent production of champions. I could not be more delighted with him.

Bocelli took Supreme Champion early in his career at his very first show as a Juvie in an un-tipped fleece against some already established males. He continued to display consistent success in both the halter and fleece ring well into his breeding years, with his most recent successes including several fleece wins in 2019 (at 7 years old!), in addition to being recognized nationally when he was tied for the Annual ALPACA CANADA HUACAYA 6+ YEARS FLEECE award that same year.

Awards aside, Bocelli excels in the production of highly lustrous, long-stapled, well organized fleece with excellent uniformity of micron across the blanket. He has produced several silky-fleeced cria to date (his pedigree includes several notable silky producers), with all of Bocelli's offspring displaying above average staple lengths across the blanket and into the neck, in addition to uniformity in micron, style and organization across the blanket. His cria can be identified day or night by their outstanding lustre alone.

Light fawn with facial spotting (light and dark) himself, Bocelli is producing cria in every colour (including at least one indefinite harlequin grey), with the cria matching or being much darker than their dams in colour and patterning.

Foundationally Bocelli is a large, well balanced male with correct conformation. He is medium built and very athletic, which has translated well into his work in the breeding shed. Several judges have described him and his sons as having a perfect head with the right degree of coverage (and no muffling!). I am pleased to say that he has been stamping his low maintenance head style onto his progeny, with him having produced several sons and daughters who at times are indistinguishable from him in profile.

As well put together Bocelli is physically, he exemplifies everything one could hope for in temperament. He has an excellent disposition, being very mild on and off halter and not one to engage in macho scuffles. He is very polite with the ladies, and is excellent around cria and youngstock, with absolutely no vices to speak of. Bocelli is the first to greet visitors without being pushy, and has excelled in PR work. He is stamping his tractability and good disposition reliably onto his offspring, with all of them showing high degrees of natural sociability, and are excellent learners.
