If I had the space to breed again this is one male I'd use first. His color is uniform as are his microns. His fleece length remains good and so is his density. He has a lot of the qualities of his sire, who was fantastic!
Pardon Sunny's poor shearing job but you can see how long his fleece was in June 2010. His fleece is fine and dense and uniform in color and handle. His dam has consistently produced cria with heavy fleece weights. His first sheared blanket weighs 4.6 lbs. And that's with very poor quality hay and pasture forage.
His sire, Snowmass Sumar Escobar (a Hemingway grandson), has produced a long line of very fine fleeced alpacas who maintain that fineness for years. Add to that Sunny's density, staple length and beautiful crimp and you have a potential herdsire who will improve your herd.
He's a nice male who doesn't pick fights and isn't dominating in the pasture.
Solaris (Sunny) is a medium sized male with fantastic handle and very long staple length. The long fleece length is a trait of his dam's lineage and the fineness comes from his sire. His crimp is beautiful and won him a first place for fleece at AlpacaMania 2009.
His legs are very straight and he tracks very well. His bite is perfect and based on his dam and sire, should stay that way. We've never trimmed his dam's or sire's teeth. His overall conformation is correct.
He's a nice looking male. His fleece is very uniform and the handle is amazing. He's not a large male and is easy to handle.
