Introductory stud fee
A son of the incredible 10 year old Rico Suave whose fiber is known for maintaining fineness. At 8 years of age, Marco’s sire, Rico Suave had a 17 micron blanket. Rico’s sire, Accoyo Elite, recorded 18 microns at 6 year’s of age. Rico’s dam, Bobbie Anne, even more incredible considering the toll taken by pregnancy and nursing recorded a 19 micron fleece at 11 years of age. This, of course, is what Marco’s great grandsire, Hemingway, is famous for also – lingering fineness into maturity.
Marco’s dam, the medium brown Peruvian Rachelle, at age 9 posts a histogram AFD of 23, an SD of 4, a CV of 18, a curvature of 47 and a 6% of fibers > 30.
Density: 69/ sq mm S/P 16.5/1
This lingering fineness is a trait we strongly desire in our herd and Marco is the boy we think will do this for us.
Depending on skin biopsy results at age two, Marco should be standing stud at SafeHouse Farm in the fall of 2011.
Marco is co-owned with Cuba Road Illinois Alpacas. A one-third share in Marco is available.
