Antoine has a nice head on a balanced frame. He has good architect of fleece that has a long staple length. His fleece cracks when he moves showing a great density.
Antoine has great genetics with Caligula on his father's side and Microsoft and Camelio on his mother's side and Hemingway on both sides. Antoine is pheno typically correct. Both his sire and dam have given us some outstanding offspring!
Antoine's 2013 fiber sort showed 10 out of 10 for brightness, 4.5 out of 5 for density and 7 out of 8 for uniformity of micron with moderate amplitude and moderate frequency of 6-7 per inch. He had 53.0 oz of WR 1-2 in his blanket and 27.1 of the same in his neck. Staple length is 2 1/2 - 3 inches. Sorter said "bright, dense, uniform S/P, fleece lacking guard hair and had a slick hand."
Antoine's 2016 EPDs show that he is in the top 3% for lack of medullation and staple length, top 5% for FW, top 13% for %>30M, top 15% for fineness, and top 16% for spin fineness. If you need to improve those traits in your female for a better cria then consider purchasing Antoine.
Whether you are interested in purchasing high quality alpacas for breeding, show, fiber or selecting a herd sire to breed to, you should use Expected Progeny Differences (EPDs) as your most important selection tool in addition to evaluating phenotype. You can also increase the probability of creating ideal offspring with up to 95% accuracy. Contact us to learn more about using EPDs. We have been using them to improve our herd since 2008.
