Description

UPDATE: At twenty years of age, we have retired Equador from breeding, as he is most likely infertile now. His last breedings did not take, and a physical exam also supports this conclusion. He is still very robust and healthy and will now live out his senior years in comfort at Landmark Farm!

For those who need the scientific stats provided by skin biopsy to back up the claim of lingering fineness, here they are!

In June 2012, we had then 12-year-old My Peruvian Equador evaluated by Dr. Norm Evans, who states that "Equador's strong fiber traits are his fiber density, cluster regularity, S/P ratio, gland density, and fineness. He shows few fibers over 30 microns. This male is loaded with prepotent male genetic fiber traits that have been associated with champions. Consider breeding him to biopsied females to maximize his genetic potential." His numbers: Density 55, S/P ratio 13.2 to 1, Gland Density level 3 of 4, Av. secondary fiber diameter 22.9 microns, Av. primary fiber diameter 29.9 microns. This was at TWELVE years of age!! UPDATE: 2016 AFD at SIXTEEN years of age is 22.3 microns!!! Now that is lingering fineness!!!

Equador stood for nine years on Magical Farms' Herdsire Row. He is the product of crossing the legendary Peruvian Dakotia and PPeruvian Epifania. Dakotia is the son of Peruvian Bueno, and a grandson of Peruvian Don Julio.

Equador is a very proud male with excellent presence and loves to showboat and pose for the camera at 20 years of age! He has a very gentle temperament and has passed along his beautiful phenotype and advanced fleece characteristics to his offspring, such as multiple champion MFI Peruvian Palace Guard and rose grey color champion MFI Nightshade! He has produced outstanding offspring in an array of colors from black, silver and rose grey, brown and fawn, to white. Equador's crias are very dense and heavily fibered, all the way down to their toes. He has certainly improved on the fineness and density in our herd!
