10/2016: Peaceful Prairie's Rafael Took FIRST place and COLOR CHAMPIONSHIP at last weekend's Gold Country Gathering Fleece Show - in a 'competitive' class per judge Wini Labrecque. See his fleece scorecard in photos where she noted 'heavy fleece with exceptional fineness and low presence of guard hair'.

Peaceful Prairie's Rafael packs a lineage with all the 'greats'. His sire, Hummingherd's Nadal was sired by Hummingherd's Leviathan (a Poseidon son) and out of dam Victor's Accoyo Mele - yes.. A PPeruvian Victor G4563 daughter! Its there that the legacy of long, dense and bright fleece begins. However, we hit the jackpot when Curt Gedney of Hummingherd alpacas had the foresight to use Rafeal's sire Nadal over Hummingherd's Tickled Pink. In Tickled Pink's first breeding she brought her own outstanding fleece stats, and an award-winning lineage that starts with her sire, Aspen Ridge's Augusto's Cochiti. It makes sense to see the outstanding traits of PPPeruvian Augusto 6009 and Microsoft-Accoyo Marco Polo pack on the winning genetics that we see in PPR's Rafael, especially the elusive trait (for us in the SW) of staple length!

Rafael's first full-year clip at 17 months of age resulted in 10.2 lbs shorn! Yes, 10lbs of fine 18.5 AFD bright white fleece. He 'wow'd' all watching and even the shearer. His density was a suprise to some degree... as his 5 inch staple length got most of our attention prior to shearing. He is dense, and has the full, typey coverage that breeders like. Even his neck fiber is usable prime fiber. Conformation is correct, bite perfect. We wont be calling him 'compact' as he is growing into a good sized male already at 18 months. He began acting potently interested in breedings occuring this past fall and so we will be starting his breeding career this spring after he attends Nationals in March.
