Description

MR. PERFECT'S 2014 HISTOGRAM AT 39 MONTHS: AFD 19.0, SD 3.3, CV 17.2, %>30 0.7. NOTE: THE SD, CV & %>30 IMPROVED FROM PREVIOUS YEARS -- SUPERB CONSISTENCY!! WE LOVE THIS GORGEOUS HUNK, AND WE CONSIDER HIM GREAT HERDSIRE MATERIAL.

He may not be THE perfect alpaca, but we think he's close! There are several outstanding traits to this overall beautiful male. One, the crimp in Mr. P's fleece is truly as good as it appears in the fleece photo, and it extends to tail, legs, everywhere. Secondly, we are impressed with the fact that he shows very little guard hair...even in the apron area. In addition to the fineness that we love, he also has superb staple length, great leg coverage, and a very strong frame with a broad chest.

His dam was a Reserve Champion at 8 months, and pairing her with Snowmass Perfection gave us everything we had hoped it would. Legacy shows up on both the top and bottom of Mr. P's pedigree (not close, but there,) and is combined with Don Julio, Hemingway, Caligula, and Bueno. He exhibits the phenotype that should accompany these genetics.

We did find a small brown spot in Mr. P's fleece...thanks to Dehlia, who sports one on her nose...so you may not want to risk breeding him to a pure white female if you are going for snow white. We suspect he will produce amazing color when bred to color.

Mr. P impregnated on his first try at 26 months. However, that was the only female we put with him since we were trying to prove several, and sadly, we lost her last winter with a 100 day pregnancy on board.

Fortunately, he had a handsome little male, Lancelot, born to our Lotus this summer! Lancelot is everything we hoped would come out of Mr. Perfect! He has rolling skin and fiber down to his toes! He sold at 7 months of age!

Excited to get him some more breedings to see what else he can do!
