Description


Marco just took another blue at the Michigan 2014 show. Arturo Pena's comments: "Correct conformation, good balance and for a 64 month old male - very good degree of fineness" So at five and a half years old Marco is still fine, uniform, and the densest fawn huacaya in the Midwest per Ian Watt's skin biopsy results.
Co-owned with Wineaux Alpacas

Marco is a full Peruvian Dark Fawn HemiAccoyo. His skin follicular density is 68.9.
(His Sire, Rico Suave, pictured on right, has a biopsy number of 69 also and the same S/P ratio of 11/1).
This density puts him at the top of Ian Watt's testing history!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The ratio of secondary fibers (down) to primary fibers (hair) is 11/1
Marco's Primary Fibers average 15.8 with a standard deviation of 2.7
Marco's Secondary Fibers average 14.3 microns with a standard deviation of 2.5
Marco's Primary and Secondary fibers measure an incredibly low 5.4 microns apart.
His curvature is 54.46
These stats do not come from a judge's outside view - but from a test of what's under the skin. If you want to add lingering fineness, density and ultra uniformity to your herd (and in color) this is a boy to consider.

Marco is the son of the incredible Rico Suave (now deceased) whose fiber was at 17 microns at 11 years of age.
This is lingering fineness and is a 'must have asset' for every herd.

Marco's grandsire, Accoyo Elite, recorded an 18 micron fleece at 6 years old
Marco's grand dam, Bobbie Anne, has an even more incredible story considering the toll taken by pregnancy and nursing, she recorded a 19 micron fleece at 11 years of age.

This, of course, is what Marco's great grandsire, Hemingway, is famous for bringing this lingering fineness into maturity into our North American alpaca herd.

Marco's dam, the medium brown Peruvian Rachelle, at age 9, posted a histogram AFD of 23, an SD of 4, a CV of 18, a curvature of 47. Rachelle is a half sister to Winchester (A Rafael son, winner of 80 championships).

Marco's first cria, Bambino Suave, is on the ground. He is dark fawn, like his sire, Marco. His dam is a 5 year old LF girl with a standard deviation of 4.3 and a CV of 16.8. Her AFD is still in the mid 20s.

Marco's dam, Rachell, is out of the Peruvian Import Glennis who boasted 2 year histogram of
FD 18.3, SD 3.2, CV 17.5, at 2 and
FD 25.4, 4.5, CV 17.7, @ 10 yrs old!

Robusto, her 2004 cria had the following fibre micron data:
FD 16.7 SD 4.1 CV 24.0 %>30 1.6!)

Rachelles histogram 2005:
FD 20.6 SD 4.1 CV 19.9 %>30 2.3 as a 5 year old! afterall, arent we all breeding for girls that can maintain their fineness?
Rachelle is 1/2 sister of Winchester

Marco currently has 4 offspring on the ground
Zhivago - MF boy
Fanciulla DF girl
Stromboli TB boy (Snowmass Matrix gra
