Bidding Info


OH WOW..Derwydd knew they had bred a fine one…his dam has retained fineness – his granddam is in the top 5 in the country for retained fineness - but when his EPD’s came in for 2014 – it was just icing on the cake. Five out of the Nine EPD values are in the top 1% and Two more are in the top 3% – absolutely stunning!

So when Dale Davis set out to plan the breeding that produced this male – she was looking to lock in his grandam’s incredible fine fleece. She is just about 18 years old and still 23 micron with an SD of 3.5…just incredible. Her daughter, Cungasca, inherited that retained fineness – at 11 years old she is 24 micron with an SD of 4.5. So you can see where she was headed with this breeding… FINE FINE FINE.. and WOW did she get it.

But she also wanted a male with STYLE...incredible EPD’s, retained fineness – those are incredible…but you need the whole package! You want correct conformation! You want substantial bone! You want a head that is generational! And boy does Chupulu have all that! He got his grandsire, El R Peruvian Luciano’s, head so it’s obviously a strong trait in his line. This boy has sooo much color in his pedigree – Black – Grey – Fawn!!! This male is destined to throw color and LOTS of it.


Chupulu has settled some girls and is ready for more breedings ahead! The question is: Are YOU ready to get his incredible EPD’s working for you in your program?

On October 2, 2015, Chupulu's first cria arrived, a beautiful girl, Chupulu's Prima Figlia, with exceptionally bright white, silky soft, crimpy fleece!
