He's 12, but acts like he's 5. If you want better EPDs and uniform, fine, pigmented gray fleeces with no guard hair, here you go.

This line produces lingering 13 to 19 micron pigmented gray fleeces...consistently.

I combined Fox's first five fleeces into one lot to make yarn.

Thanks to his sire, Royal Bronze, Fox is a master at overall uniformity, removing guard hair and fining down fleeces and adding more crimps per inch, good staple length, along with deep and vivid colors. He's a...

Description

2012 AOBA AUCTION - SOLD. Grateful thanks to Pat Till and family, Dusk Till Dawn Alpacas in IA.

FIRST PLACE, HALTER - ALPACAPALOOZA 2012...with a very damp fleece.

Half brother, Graphite - 1st Futurity 2012!

Eleven to 18 microns are the eight highest bars on the histogram graph for her March 2012 mid-side sample (about one inch of cria tips cut off sample). With an SD of 4.1, those eight microns (11 m to 18 m) represent close to two standard deviations, or about two-thirds of the fibers tested in the sample submitted. The graph also shows 5% of fibers at 11 microns...significantly more than her siblings.

She is amazingly fine and is on a normal diet (pasture, o. grass, alfalfa, pelleted supplement).

(Hint: View fleece photo at smaller size for a realistic idea of her fleece's character.) Reyna's fleece exhibits very well-defined crimp character skin to uncut cria tip with outstanding density, uniformity, length, brightness and a silky handle. Reyna has lots of substance, correct phenotype and conformation and complete coverage, long staple length and a beautiful head with spear-shaped ears and an overflowing topknot. Born at 18.5 pounds, up and nursing in minutes and running around the pastures all afternoon.

MRG ALPACAPALOOZA CHAMPION DAM, Miss Liberty, a Premier's Absolute daughter.

MSG AOBA COMPOSITE CHAMPION SIRE (3rd fleece!), Snowmass RRoyal Fox, son of royal-fine Snowmass Royal Bronze and a Casanova daughter who produced 3 Futurity winners.

RRoyal Fox's 5th fleece placed first (over the adult halter class first place winner at 2 years younger), at Alpacapalooza 2012.

Her grandsires are Snowmass Royal Bronze (14.9 / 2.9 / 19.5 / 0.2 ...second shearing) and Premier's Absolute.

Reyna is better than her dam and as good as her sire. I couldn't have asked for a better result from her champion parents. She has "it" and will be a super star in any gray program.

Awards

ALPACAPALOOZA 2012 - FIRST PLACE, HALTER.
COMPETITOR'S SIRES: RINCON CLOUD, DEACON GRAY, LENNOX, AND MORE.
EVEN THOUGH VERY DAMP WHICH FLATTENED MOST OF HER CRIMP (NO FANS RUNNING OVERNIGHT DUE TO NO OUTLETS AT MY PENS AND THE FIRST CLASS OF THE MORNING), JUDGE TIM LAVAN WAS QUITE IMPRESSED WITH HER FLEECE, ESPECIALLY THE OVERALL UNIFORMITY, FINENESS, DENSITY AND LENGTH. ...I WISH HE COULD HAVE SEEN HER PERFECTLY DRY...THAT'S IMPRESSIVE!
