This Jumanji son has it all. Most importantly a winning show record for both fleece and halter. We purchased A Man Among Men at the 2016 futurity and he has been winning every since. His record as a juvenile is unmatched, starting with the 2016 Futurity and ending with being in the running for Supreme Champion at the 2017 AOA Nationals. At the nationals he received light color champion in the Invited light classification. Man now has many babies on the ground that truly reflect all his eli...

Description

Sage is a new acquisition from Snow Diamond Alpacas. She comes from exceptional stock. We originally went to purchase her sister whose histogram and EPDs are exemplary, after seeing her we bought Sage without a histogram or EPD knowing what her sister had and the lineage of Sage. We were not disappointed. The purchase of Sage and Breeze from Snow Diamond was to integrate improvement in our herds AFDSD. Our goal is to have all animals below 4.0 and the higher goal of at or around 3.0. Both of these girls are in the 1% trait value for AFDSD.

Sage's fleece character traits are superior. She has a beautiful fine fleece with plenty of luster and soft handle. It is quite difficult to find any primary fibers and when you do they are mistaken for secondary fibers they are so fine. She is very dense, with an AFD of 21 micron at age 3, but an SD of 2.8. That is amazing uniformity. This was her first histogram, so imagine what she was like at age 1. Miraculously she has little loss in staple length with that AFD & SD.

Sage's topside is Snowmass Defiance and bottom is Grandioso's Serenade, both great bloodlines. Bloodlines that will bring some outside genetics to our program with guaranteed improvement to our program in the areas we need most.

Sage has excellent substance of bone and her phenotype shows good conformation. She has been bred to Majestic's A Man Among Men and we expect a great offspring from this breeding. Sage's SD is in AOA's 1% ranking which is just what we needed. She is in the 5% ranking for 4 out of 5 fineness traits. She is being bred to Majestic's Man to improve her staple length EPD. One percent in SD is truly one EPD that is difficult to come by and even more difficult to breed for, so we are more than pleased with this young foundation dam. She will add some very desirable genetics potential into our herd in one breeding with this pairing.

Take a look at her overall EPD trait profile for 2018 under the EPD icon above.
