We couldn't have ordered up a more desired Legato Grigio son to carry on our "modern" grey breeding program. Duke Ellington is out of one of our very best production females.
He is a stunning "blue roan". We expect that he will show the same pattern of dominant grey inheritance as his sire, RR Legato Grigio. LG has been one of the most prepotent males that we have worked over the years and his production rivals that of his renowned sire RR Gun's A'Blazin'.

He has had a very strong showing a...

Isabella is a RR Gun's A'Blazin' daughter who has analytics that are "outasight". Check out those serial histograms for consistent fineness. A micron under 22 at age 6 is impressive...a comfort factor of 96%, is ridiculous.
After 4 pregnancy, she still has only 4% of her fibers over 30 micron!

In terms of genetic predilection for fiber production, her skin biopsy, at 23 months, shows a set of numbers that we would love to see across the herd (reference to Alpaca Consulting USA, Ian Watt):

Touchstone is emerging as a major contributor on our herdsire row.
He is the total package both conformationally and in fleece which has taken consecutive banners at the National.

We love what he brings to our herd.

Bidding Info


Naturally a Duke Ellington daughter would be a Duchess.

Duchess is a light modern rose grey (Bay roan).
She has excellent fiber stats and a very fine fleece.

Duchess is out of our 4th generation dominant roan line.
Her sire, Duke Ellington, is a blue roan (modern medium silver grey). He therefore has an EE black base color.
The service sire. RR Touchstone has a production record that is outstanding production record and demonstrated that he is an Ee black carrier and has produced outstanding blacks.

Duchess has a 50% chance of roan with this next cria...of those roans 50% will be blue roan (modern silver grey) and 50% bat roan (modern rose grey).

Whatever the color outcome, these are some of our best lines through 5 generations of selection starting with Aussie Guns n Roses 15 years ago.
