We knew that Arturo was going to be extraordinary as soon as his fleece was dry. His namesake, Ken's father (Arthur), would have been 100 years old the day Arturo was born.

We also knew that dad, our own Snowmass RRoyal Stars was a "dilution" white, with fleece density in the top 1% of alpacas biopsied by Ian Watt, as was his mom RR Rose Encantada and waited with confident expectations until the results came in.

Billie is a gem out of one of our very best production females. She has a killer rose grey fleece, with beautifully organized staple and plush length.

How about a fourth shear with AFD 21.4/ SD 3.7/ CV 17.3 and a comfort factor still at 97.5%...and check out the length.

Not surprisingly, her first offspring, RR Houdini, sired by our own RR Arturo (medium brown), is a solid grey with the fiber characteristics that made Arturo a repeated champion in both halter and fleece.
Even better is ...

Houdini is a promising roan male who is well conformed and carries a dense fleece with excellent hand and uniformity. It is very bright and beautifully defined with ridiculous length. Both his sire and dam are holding their micron into maturity.

He is a third generation dominant roan and his genomics are currently be analyzed as part of our sample of 26 in the study being done by Munyard and Brooks on alpaca color genetics.
To prove the dominance of roan, this same breeding resulted in RR Modigliani
We expect that he too should transmit roan to a dark solid colored female.

If anyone has roans that they would like to breed him to, he should also be a candidate to produce a double dominant Rn Rn genotype. Homopzyous tuxedo grey (TxTx) has been shown to be lethal, but homozygous roan RnRn is viable in horses and the alleles are likely to be identified in alpacas in current studies.
