Dr Jeri Booher writes:
There is no doubt that the North American alpaca industry has made tremendous progress since the inception of TIMBERLAND ALPACAS back in 1992. In 1992, the registry had approximately 2,500 alpacas in its database. Today the number of registered alpacas exceeds 25,000. There is also no doubt that the quality of the North American alpaca has increased dramatically over the last eight years. If there exists one Huacaya herd sire that has made the most profound impact ...

ARI# 834178 | DOB: 2/20/2001
Nucatta is an excellent mother. She vocally defends and protects her crias. Her daughter Rockford Hemingway’s Ruth, a daughter of Hemingway himself, as well as her others show her excellent progeny. All of her crias are dense, and have wonderful luster and crimp.

In 2008, Nucatta gave birth to another cria-Rockford Renaissance, with the sire as Snowmass Reminiscence, who has almost impenetrably dense fleece and a champion ancestry line from Snowmass Snowmaster, Snowmass Edelweis, Snowmass L...

Hemingway's done it again; with another exceptional offspring … Hemingway's Ruth! She shines with his genes, with the ‘Hemingway head’, lovely topknot, and perfect spear-shaped ears! She has a wonderful handle, density, luster, and more!!!

Ruth will add pervasive fineness and elite genetics to your breeding program, as well as remarkable density and lingering fineness, as she has already done so many times already.

Ruth's histograms show incredible fineness:

At 6 months of age, her AFD was: 17.9;
2nd shearing: 20.4 (both 1st and 2nd years, she was boarded out);
3rd shearing: 16.9;
5th shearing: 18.5;
6th shearing: 21.3;
7th shearing: 21.3
8th shearing: 21.1!!!!

Her offspring show the same, and are extremely dense with tons of coverage and fineness:

Royal: Year 1: 15.4
Uzziah: Year 1: 17.4; Year 2: 14.5
Reginald: Year 1: 17.1
Dia: Year 1: 15.1
Ruby: Year 1: 16.6

Ruth has been rebred to Snowmass Snow Legend multiple times, because the crias they produce are extraordinary!!! Snowmass Snow Legend is one of the finest studs in the nation, who had a cashmere-like fleece of 14.4 micron count in 2004 and who has retained his lingering fineness with a micron count of 20.8 at 9 years old!! Legend represents the greatness of his sire (Snowmass IncaAccoyo Star) & grandsire(Snowmaster), with additional brightness, luster & highly expressive crimp making an unbelievable fleece on this true Champion. The good news for us? He has proven to pass all of these qualities onto his offspring.
