Quechua Radiance is quite a "head turner", or at least the judges seem to think so! His luminous fleece demonstrates extreme locking to the skin, and it drips with luster. His heritage is 3/4 Accoyo. Radiance has SOLID BONE structure and a perfect conformation. His dam, Q'orianka was legendary on the show circuit and she has been one of our best producers. Both she and his Accoyo sire bring density to Radiance, and we are thrilled to have their handsome son. Even at 6 years of age, on his 7th fleece, he glows in the barn more than any other male, and he may have the best fleece of any of our males.
Radiance has a compact, correct, sturdy conformation with BONE!! We have "deployed him" on larger girls, to bring down the cria size and it certainly worked with his first cria, Silken Radiance (his dam is very big!). Radiance has a trouble-free demeanor--not looking for trouble, but willing to stand up for himself. He has a rather "serious" personality, but is easy to handle and loves to be our example of beautiful luster and locking for visitors.
Radiance's 2012 EPDs are excellent: AFD -0.9, %F>30:-3.4 (more below). and backing that up, his first cria has taken Color Champion at the 2014 International Alpaca Odyssey!
***Radiance sells with 3 breedings reserved for our use--we don't want to lose track of this boy....
