Her sire, Legacy Gold, sold for $500K at the Snowmass 2006 auction. Small wonder. He is sire to the incomparable Snowmass Invincible.

Her dam is also dam to Snowmass Nova, Snowmass Drambuie's Braveheart and Snowmass Magic Midnight. Now there's a genetic power house.

RR DIZZY GILLESPIE

Huacaya, Male, Proven, Medium Rose Grey
ARI# 35211037 | DOB: 9/26/2015
We are thrilled by the production of RR Rose La Reina, Dizzy Gillespie's mom who produced the 2 densest females biopsied through Ian Watt, as of oct 2015.

The icing was on the cake with the coming of Dizzy Gillespie who has a superior phenotype in solid rose grey, with fleece "to die for". He is the 2017 AOA National Fleece blue ribbon grey, both rose and silver combined.

He also has excellent follicle density testing by skin biopsy:


Follicle density: 61.8/cm2
S/P ratio: ...

Description

There's Gold in this pedigree. Legacy Gold that is. He is a magnificent sire out of Legacy. Encantada's mom is one of 2 of his daughters that we purchased to bring those incredible lines to our herd. Golden Dreams, Encantada's mom, has Drambuie's Kaluha as her dam.
If the name Drambuie's Kaluha sounds familiar, it might be because she is also dam to Snowmass Nova, Snowmass Drambuie's Braveheart and Snowmass Magic Midnight. She's clearly proven her worth.

Encantada's dad is our own Guns n'Roses. He too, should be no stranger. He is an olympian rose grey who has proven, without a doubt, one of the most most prepotent greys in the country having sired offspring who have taken over 50 banners before his 5th birthday.

More to the point, their analytics have been outstanding with Encantada being a perfect example. Apart from her histograms, she has been follicle density tested by Ian Watt and as of Dec 11 is the densest female that he has tested in any color!

Her Watt skin biopsy showed:

Density: .......................................66.2

Secondary: Primary fiber ratio:.....11.2:1

In-skin primary fiber diameter:

20.5 micron (SD 2.9)

In-skin secondary fiber diameter:

14.6 micron (SD 2.2)

Comments: This is an exceptional female alpaca with the highest density figure we have tested in a female of any color and also a very good S:P ratio.

The fiber population differential is slightly higher than one would expect for such a dense animal but this is skewed by a couple of very low secondary fiber micron counts which create a wider gap than would otherwise be evident.

Nevertheless, this is an exceptional animal.


Exceptional indeed; we stopped doing histograms on Encantada at age 7 in 2016 at which time she was 22.1/ 4.2/ 19.1/ Comfort factor 95.9%!

Her offspring have held their micron and championed in brown and black.

We think that she is an excellent candidate for a roan out of strawberry roan service sire, RR Dizzy Gillespie.
