We are pleased to announce that Whitney Snow will be featured at AOBA Nationals again for 2014. ARI is featuring the top 5 Animals in the nation for EPDs for the 5 measured traits. Our Whitney is top for Mean Curvature and standard deviation for mean curvature (Crimp) in the nation. Whitney Snow is another of our primary foundation dams. She too is in the top EPD ranking for fiber fineness. Whitney is a full sister to our Herdsire Arapaho Snow's Macchu Picchu. She currently has her latest cria out of Bluegrass Peruvian Prophecy, River Phoenix. Phoenix EPDs are what we expected, world class. Her next breeding will be to Hemingway's Bogart, most likely the best yet.
Whitney did not disappoint us with the birth of her first cria in Contender's River Sampson. Sampson's EPDs are in the top 1% ranking amongst the 14,000 alpacas tested in 2012. His first histogram AFD was 15, just what the EPD's predicted. Whitney's cria Sampson has coverage and staple length and all those fi

PROPHECY'S EPDS ARE IN THE TOP 1% OF ALL ALPACAS IN THE NATION! Colusa Riverside Alpacas is proud to announce the aquisition of Bluegrass Peruvian Prophecy from Stargazer Alpacas. This elite white fiber boy's EPDs for average fiber diameter is third best in white huacaya fiber in the nation on ARI's 2011 published EPD results. Prophecy is 2nd only to four other herdsires in the top alpacas in the 2011 EPD testing for Average Fiber Diameter. Prophecy's father ACCOYO AMERICA APOCALYPSE has the number 1 ranking in ARI AFD EPDs. Prophecy's dam Bella Bianca can also brag about her EPDs, which are also superior to the national average for AFD. Apocalypse and Bella Bianca together created this nationally superior gentleman Haucaya white Herdsire now available for stud at Colusa Riverside Alpacas.

Phoenix is an unproven HERDSIRE WITH INDUSTRY DESIREABLE FIBER TRAITS. THIS HERDSIRE HAS THE EPDS TO MATCH THE HISTOGRAM. This young man will make any ranch a desired stud to integrate desired fleece traits in their offspring. More importantly, he will integrate the EPDs into offspring to insure those genetic traits continue in his progeny AND BEYOND. This is a very reasonable price for this boy.
Colusa Riverside Alpacas has been on the cutting edge in the development of a breeding line of alpacas, all of which have superior fiber and superior fiber trait EPDs. Phoenix's EPDs are so positive he could improve your herd's fiber in one generation. We have him on sale to reduce our herd size and his sale price is not reflective of his quality. Don't miss out on this opportunity. Phoenix received the best from his parents. Phoenix's Grandfather is the renowned EPD stud Accoyo America Apocolypse.
Phoenix's fiber weight this year was 10 pounds. His blanket was over 4 pounds. He is a gentleman and has been handled regularly. We will guarantee his potency as a sire.
Phoenix is our first son of Bluegrass Peruvian Prophecy paired with Arapaho Whitney Snow. Both sire and dam are in MULTIPLE top AOA Expected Progeny Determination (EPD) database. Matching these two has provided Phoenix with histogram AFD values in the teens and EPD values that guaranteed to pass this fineness onto his offspring. Phoenix is superior in phenotype but most importantly he is superior in his guaranteed ability to produce these valuable traits in his offspring. His testicle size was commented on at his showing as a juvenile by the IAO judge in 2014 for their size.
Colusa Riverside has been working since its inception to build a superior EPD herd. We are now at that point in our breeding program where we can start to sell superior EPD animals to our customers. Phoenix is one of our home grown offspring with those world class trait values. We want to help our customers incorporate superior values into their breeding program. We assure the buyer of Phoenix that when this herdsire goes to stud for your breeding program that he is guaranteed to provide improvement in your herds fiber, regardless of who you breed to him.
