DUNCAN of Stirling Ridge

DUNCAN of Stirling Ridge

Dark Fawn
AOA# 836185
Nice boy! And in very good shape for his 18 years. I've been using him often to spit-check my bred girls and he definitely is able to breed. Just used him in 2020 with Finneana to lengthen her fine staple. If bought, we ask that you give him some TLC in the way of extra nutrition to keep his weight up: alfalfa or chow. Here are his 2019 EPD results: AFD, value .444, likely to give cria a higher fiber diameter than average, ranked 88.9% SDAFD, value +.171, likely to give cria a less uniform fleece than average, ranked 90.7% Spin Fineness, value +.596, like to add to SF, ranked 91.8% %F>30, value —2.102, likely to produce cria with less micron >30 than average, ranked 48.9% Mean Curvature, value —.11, likely to lessen curve, ranked 65.6% SDMC, value -0.057, likely to lessen the standard deviation of curve, not ranked %Medullation, value +1.315, likely to add some medullation, ranked 86.8% TOP 19% in Mean Staple Length, value +1.306, likely to add to staple length TOP 1% in Fleece Weight, value +1.105, likely to add to fleece weight Birth Weight, value +.246, likely to add to birth weight Not too shabby for a 17-year-old! If you buy Duncan, we will bring him to WSU for a breeding soundness exam and an updated health check. That is included in his price. If he doesn't check out, you don't buy, and no money will be exchanged. Or you will be given a full refund if you have paid. Promise! Click to see a copy of the CONTRACT for a herdsire breeding. If you are interested in purchasing Duncan, click to see a STUD PURCHASE CONTRACT. Duncan has packed nearly 12 lbs. of dense fleece on his compact frame in his earlier years. Now 17 years old, he's still shearing heavy. His histogram is very decent for his age. There's no doubt about the improvement he's made on the girls he's been bred to by putting LOTS more crimpy fleece and a very pretty head on each of his babies. We are very pleased to say that Premier Alpacas (of Absolute and Rubio fame) has used Duncan. Their website stated they have "incorporated these noteworthy bloodlines in our breeding program" of which Duncan is one. That is a huge compliment. Thank you! Duncan's qualities in a nutshell: CALIGULA genetics in dark fawn Handsome head: short-muzzled, triangular Compact at 150# and 35 inches at withers Very proud and erect Respectful and easy to handle Shears HEAVY fleece weights Improves fleece character, micron, shear weight Early maturity (heritable trait)

Here's one pretty, easy keeping little lady with a fleece that's SO USEABLE! She will be bred to Bradford, aiming for April or May of 2022. See their 2020 histograms! This match should give her better values for her EPD. Here's what her 2019 EPD shows she is likely to give her cria: Ranked 56.6% for AFD, value —.117, a lower AFD than breed average Ranked 37.4% for SDAFD, value —.13, a more uniform fleece than average Ranked 50.1% for Spin Fineness, value —.229, a finer SF than average Ranked 26.6% for %F>30, value —3.345, a lesser micron >30 than average Ranked 34.8% for Mean Curvature, value +.879, more curve than average SDMC, value +.246: more uniformity to curve ...

We are very happy to have acquired BRADFORD from Grazing Hills Alpacas! Bradford is the half brother of our dearly departed Dirk. Both are sons of Accoyo-America DIOMEDES who is now deceased. Diomedes has imprinted his handsome head and his amazing fleece characteristics to these sons of his and for that reason we jumped at the chance to have another Diomedes boy on the farm! Bradford x Vanora = Ceilidh (Kaylee) our first Bradford baby born on the farm June 2020. She's a beaut! Bradford has a beautiful head, nice bite, boxy conformation, wonderfully straight topline, super fleece characteristics. Handsome on all counts. He is an eager breeder, ready for action, and we are offeri...

Diomedes' VANORA of Stirling Ridge

HuacayaFemale (bred)White
AOA# DOB: 9/19/200812 yrs
Vanora was bred to Grazing Hills Bradford and birthed a gorgeous girl on 6/17/2020 named Kaeleigh. They both have amazing fleece with the super inherited quality of lingering fineness and we fully expect this cria to follow in their impressive steps. This is such a beautiful cria, we rebred Vanora to Bradford for a 2021 cria. Vanora's 2020 histogram is now posted—super nice! Click on "histogram" for the full report. She has consistently been one of our heaviest fleece weights while being one of our lowest micron. That is a combo we want to keep and reproduce! Lingering fineness. [Remember this gal is 12 years old!] EPD report for 2019: Vanora is in the top 1% (actually 0.3%)...

AOA# DOB: 6/2/200516 yrs
We have bred Kenzie to Bradford and are waiting to see if it takes! She has produced two of our best boys from Diomedes' breedings. Diomedes is deceased and our two Diomedes boys are also in alpaca heaven. Bradford is a Diomedes son with a 17 micron fleece at 10 years, so we are hoping for a beautiful cria, and with color. 2019 EPD RESULTS (at 14 years): Ranked 54% for AFD, value —.154 meaning her cria should have a finer fleece than breed average TOP 20% SDAFD, value —.258, her cria should have a more uniform fleece than breed average Ranked 42% for Spin Fineness, value —.377, her cria should have a lower SF than breed average ...
