Description

This boy is living up to his genetic potential! His Skin Follicle test results are in! He has 60 follicles per square mm with a secondary to primary follicle ratio of 18:1. He has passed on these excellent fiber qualities to his crias as well.

Spruce Ridge Felix Augusto is affectionately known as Gus. Gus is full Peruvian, 7/8th Accoyo male out of some of the best of Maple Brook Alpacas foundation stock. Sired by Maple brook Oro's Prince, who proudly stands stud at Spruce Ridge farm in New York. Gus has Pperuvian Felix, as his grandsire. Felix passed away in spring of 08, so his genetics will only be available through his offspring. Out of Maple Brook Delight, an incredible foundation female sired by Ppperuvian Augusto. Also in his pedigree are- Oro, 4Peruvian Karina, MFI Peruvian Destiny, Peruvian Chaparral, and Peruvian Edith.

This light fawn macho's conformation is everything it should be- good bite, straight topline, correct proportions, and good bone on a medium framed male. He carries himself well, has excellent coverage, and a lovely top knot. His fiber has a wonderful soft handle, excellent density, uniformity, and nice character to his bold crimp. See his fiber stats below.

Call for an information packet and skin follicle testing results.

His 9th shearing is coming up and he still lacks extending primaries! His fiber will likely be used for handspinners in 2013!

At age 7 in 2012, he sorted a grade 3,4 woolen!

4th Place, 2011 Estes Park Fleece Show Judge Diana Timmerman Commented on his fineness and softness for age. He scored 19/20 for fineness and handle for his fleece shorn @67 mos of age. He showed in a combined age category of D/E. Wonder how he would have done in a competative class in the E age category?

Don't let his lack of a show record fool you. This male is elite and is producing elite alpacas.
His previous owner had a virtual farm and did not have the opportunity to show him other than this one time.
