PROPHECY'S EPDS ARE IN THE TOP percentages OF ALL MALE ALPACAS IN THE NATION! Colusa Riverside Alpacas is proud to have integrated this boy's genetics into our herd, Bluegrass Peruvian Prophecy from Stargazer Alpacas. Prophecy brings to Colusa Riverside those EPD production genetics for our customers in California and beyond. He is 9 year old and still has an AFD of 23.
We now have several progeny from Prophecy and true to EPD predictions, they all have the expected improvement in fineness and other positive traits this herdsire contributed to each pairing. Prophecy's River Phoenix, his first male progeny, has 4 fiber traits in the AOA 1% Club. Prophecy also has been sustaining his own fiber fineness from year to year. Unlike many farms we do fiber analysis every year, we want studs who maintain their fineness. Be cautious of those farms that only give fiber histograms for their studs when they were very young.
Breeding to Prophecy is a guarantee you will obtain the improvement in your offspring you want, no guesswork, no chances, just predictable fiber improvement based upon reliable statistical genetic inheritance. Out of 14,637 male alpaca tested by ARI, Prophecy's genetic fiber predictability (EPD) was better than 98% of all others tested. With the right pairing of a dam from your ranch, Prophecy could produce a member of the EPD 1% Club of your own.
Prophecy's breeder described his fiber as having great staple length, bundling architecture and uniform character down his thighs and shoulder to his knees. He is extremely fine. Prophecy's pedigree lists foundation Accoyos both top and bottom. Accoyos Sicuani, Vengador, Pucara and Felix contribute generations of density, staple length and uniformity. In addition to staple length, Hemingway is in his lineage and is widely known for passing on fineness that many Accoyos may lack. An important value in EPD determination is the level of accuracy. All of Prophecy's EPDs carry a high degree of accuracy, probably some of the highest accuracy values in the database. Prophecy has his first & second crop of offspring on the ground this year and each show impeccable conformation, health, bites and fiber quality. FOR THE DISCERNING E.P.D.
