FIRST PLACE COLOR CHAMPION 2013 Alpacamania, Judge  Diana Timmerman

RR Bacchus

The stars aligned for this breeding result. Bacchus took a championship over some excellent competitors at 12 months of age, under Diana Timmerman.

He carries a very bright, skin to tip, zipper crimped, match-stick bundled fleece with uniformity, even of length, onto his belly and brisket. Diana Timmerman remarked that she visually could not identify primary fibers...we expect to be able to show a very narrow margin between primary and secondary "in-skin" micron when we biopsy him at age 2.

This breeding is a case where the whole is greater than the sum of it's parts:

Bacchus is a light fawn out of 2 dilution whites. Dad has produced brown champions. We wouldn't hesitate to breed Bacchus to darker colors.

Mom was an outstanding producer of fine fleeced offspring. We don't breed for white and when we sold her, her last (2012) histogram at age 6 was:

2012: 20.9/ 4.1/ 20.1/ CF 97.2%

Dad has a very long and impressive show record and his biopsy data put him among the very densest animals that have been skin follicle tested by Alpaca Consulting USA...and has demonstrated his pre-potency, not just in cria's ribbons but skin biopsies and histograms as well.

We believe that Bacchus is a very promising herdsire prospect. He will be a "utility" breeder, who like his dad will "touch the bases" in every color.
