Maestro, a Pperuvian Victor Grandson,is a magnificent looking true-black male with long staple length and a beautiful shiny fleece. He has a nice bite and good conformation. Comments about his fleece from spin-off competitions include very nice, beautiful, shiny, bright, soft, and lovely yarn.
In addition to his 1st and 2nd place halter placings Maestro has done well in fleece and spin-off competition as well, with four 1st place ribbons, one 2nd place and one 4th place. In his 2005 AWE 4th place showing his fleece score was just two points less than 2nd place and only a half point less than 3rd. He also equaled or exceeced 1st place in 7 of the 10 fleece quality characteristic categories.
Maestro is a nice, medium size male weighing about 165 pounds at age three. When you see him in the pasture he is a very attractive looking alpaca who holds his head high with a commanding presence. He has a good temperament, is easy to handle, has a great orgle, and a good instinct for when a female is ready or not.
Maestro's fleece coefficient of variation(CV) has always been less than 20, and in 2007 at age 4 his CV is 19.0. This is VERY GOOD for a black, and is one reason his fleece has done so well over the years in fleece and spin-off competition
