Rocky is a retired stud. He did a wonderful job for us and is still a respected leader in his little herd of sires.
Rocky is a CHAMPION exhibiting ULTRA FINENESS, FANTASTIC BRIGHTNESS, ABUNDANT DENSITY, GORGEOUS CRIMP, UNIFORMITY...BALANCED, ATTRACTIVE, CORRECT CONFORMATION...AND A TRULY PLEASING PERSONALITY.
Rocky is out of two top award-winning parents with elite Peruvian bloodlines including VICTOR, BUENO, DON JULIO, EL MOUSTACHIO, and AUGUSTO. His fleece is not just ultrafine, it's also uniform with beautiful crimp alignment, giving it such an incredible handle...exactly what we are all breeding for! And no wonder, given his dam is holding her fineness of 21 microns at 4 yrs old and his blue ribbon sire produced top award-winning offspring.
Rocky won LIGHT COLOR CHAMPION at the Fiber Fusion Alpaca Fleece Show 2012 judged under international rules by Ruth Elvestad, who gave him high scores in uniformity on all accounts. Rocky has also placed well at the Northwest Alpaca Showcase in halter. In 2013 he placed 1st as a 2-yr-old, the judge having wonderful things to say about him, complimenting him on every possible trait, including personality. In 2012, he was in a very competitive class of 14 white yearlings and placed 5th. Sires of the males in his class were among the most elite white producers and still Rocky (out of a grey sire!) caught the judge's attention.
Rocky has a lot of color in his pedigree and would be great for someone looking to add white quality in a color herd. So far he is throwing his density, crimp, and fineness to really beautiful offspring - 100% females.
