We purchased Bravado from Xanadu for advancing our white program and we have high hopes for him. His fiber is simply breathtaking and his conformation is solid. This boys second histogram came back at a remarkable 15.0 mic; 3.1 SD; 20.4 CVC and 0.7% + 30.
His sire, Maple Brook Barnabus, has the best one year alpaca histogram ever seen - 12.8 mic; 2.6 SD; 20.4 CV and 0.3%+ 30! Most importantly, he consistently passed this to his offspring. Barnabus is a 7X Get of Sire winner whose 8 year old histogram came back at 20.0 mic; 3.9 SD; 19.4 CV and 2.2% + 30.
His dam, Primavera, won a color championship at age 4 at Fall Fest, a Level III show. At 7 years old she is still shearing 9+ pounds of crimpy fleece.
Bravado started his breeding career Fall, 2011. His first two cria arrived in August 2012. Both are beautiful fawns. Both have outstanding crimp and coverage. Bravado didn't disappoint with his first year of production. Both cria's won blue at MOPACA 2014.
We bred him again for 2014 deliveries. We have 3 more 2014 Bravado cria. Two white girls and one beige boy. All look great and we are looking forward to showing them in the show ring.
