Hey, I’m sorry…. what can I say…. Sometimes life gets in the way of blogging!
Hill Country Alpacas has this great new (to our ranch) herdsire…EON Max Factor. You heard about him from my blog about the BARE Alpaca Show.
The time is getting closer and we are anxiously awaiting the arrival of our first Max Factor cria. We have chosen eight of our dams to be the the moms of the first Max cria at our ranch. Max has that super beautiful fine fleece that a descendant of Peruvian Hemingway and PPeruvian Victor offers… he also has unbelievable brightness and exquisite character.
His most recent histogram with the OFDA 100 came back with the following:
He has a Spin Fineness of 19.8 microns and a Comfort Factor of 98.7%. And, he is a 3 1/2 year old breeding male!
Some of the comments from judges who scored his fleece are, “Excellent crimp style, brightness. Very even fleece. A joy to judge!” “What a beautiful fleece!! Fine, uniform, highly aligned & bright.” Eye catching bright crimp style, good micron in relation to age group”. “Good structure, well nourished fleece”. Wow, what more can you ask for.
Now, lets see how good I will be to post picture of these long awaited cria…. The first is due on March 26th by our Oro/Dom Lucilio granddaughter, Bell.
I’m guessing a fawn colored cria, how about you?
