Priscilla is a gem of a foundation female. At age one she has histogram AFD of 16. Her fiber density is as good as it gets with her father being Snowmass RRoyal Stars whose density skin biopsy is one of the best in the world. Priscilla has fineness and density, a growers dream for a foundation dam. She will be bred to Hemingway's Bogart to match her fiber genetics and produce a progeny of ultimate quality. If you purchase Priscilla she will come with a breeding to one of our herdsire with a guarantee of offspring improvement and guarantee of potency.
Priscilla not only has fine fiber but her Standard Deviation of fine fiber is 3.3. This is an exceptional indicator of uniformity of fine fiber across her fleece. If you look at her EPD on SDAFD she should also pass along this uniformity trait to her offspring. We will show Priscilla at IAO this year in both halter and walking fleece. We have great hopes for success with Priscilla's fiber. Take a look at Priscilla's histo
COLUSA RIVERSIDE ALPACAS IS SO PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THE PURCHASE OF 2/3rd INTEREST IN THIS AMAZING HERDSIRE. What can you say about Hemingway's Bogart other than he is renowned and a one of a kind potent herdsire. Bogies EPDs rival the best in the world in nearly every fiber trait. Bogart could challenge any young stud head to head for histogram results. After 13 years, his longevity is exemplary at 22 microns after 13 years of service to the industry.
Bogart has 96 offspring, he is 13 years of age and as potent as ever. Bogart is the Son of Sire MSA Hemingway G171 and the Accoyo Dam Macara 4652. We will be offering an opportunity to integrate some of the best EPDs in world into your herd with the help of Open Herd Auction. This celebration breeding offer will last through June 31, 2015. Bring your best girl and create an offspring of exceptional quality. We are very proud to add this Hemingway son, to our growing list of outstanding string of white herdsires. Bogie is ren
Another beautifully fine fleeced Bogie daughter. Soft white and full fleeced medium sized girl. Has that Bogie head, conformation and improved fleece. The density that Bogie puts on his offspring is certainly an added benefit. Dam Priscilla is out of Snowmass Royal Stars also know for his fiber density. We expect good thing from the pairing of Bogart and Priscilla. We lost Dam Priscilla this past year, so passion will become one of our foundation dams.
Passion is packed with fine fiber. The quality of her fiber is 2nd best of the 2016 crop of crias on the farm. Her AFD is undoubtedly very low, probably a 14-15. My prediction was correct with an AFD of 15.8. Her staple length is quite good, luster and brightness is beautiful. Nice Handle and best of all very rare guard hairs. Passion's SD is less than 4.0 and fibers greater than 30% is 0.7%, confirming what I observed, very few guard hairs. Passion is out of her dam Priscilla, of which we purchased for density and uniformity. Bogart has given Passion much finer fleece but has not lost what her dam contributed.
An added benefit is her EPDs. These Epd values are wonderful. She is well above the norm for 7 of 8 values. She will improve her offspring in all these fiber traits making her a very valuable dam, not just minor improvement but major improvements. Here are her 2016 EPD values:
