We are proud to have added Silhouette to our herd from Snow Diamond Alpacas, she has not disappointed.
The star of our herd, Silhouette is a truly stunning dark fawn beauty with unbelievable fiber. Rarely does fleece top the charts in character, density, fineness and crimp all at the same time, but this girl's fleece has it all.
Evidently, the judges agree, awarding her eight banners, 16 blue ribbons, a Judge's Choice and other assorted awards before she retired from the show ring.
Silhouette's success in the show ring is backed by statistics. Check out these fiber stats for a dark animal more than five years of age and bearing crias: 19.7, 3.9, 20.0 and 1.6. Wow! In addition to her impressive histogram numbers, Silhouette's skin biopsy shows that she has 84 follicles per sq. mm of skin, indicating extremely dense fiber. To put that number in perspective, Dr. Norm Evans, who analyzed the skin biopsy, wrote, "the average for Huacaya's is about 39.75," and "superior breeding stock that seem to win in the show ring is 55-60+." Silhouette's biopsy also shows a ratio of secondary to primary fibers of 18 to 1, compared to the average S/P ratio in the alpacas that Dr. Evans has evaluated of 9 to 1.
Silhouette is the daughter of multi-color champion MFI Peruvian Donovan and three-time color champion APP Peruvian Phlirtation, as well as the granddaughter of the famous Augusto and great granddaughter of the revered Royal Fawn.
Silhouette's first breeding was to 5X Multiple Champion SA Peruvian Oracle, and that pairing produced a fabulous true black male, Snow Diamond Sgt Pepper. Sgt Pepper, also a multiple champion like his parents, sold to breeders in Austria.
Silhouette's 2013 cria is another exceptional male, Spellbound, by Snowmass Matrix Madness. Spellbound is her first light-colored cria, and he is a stunner, measuring up to his genetics with these stats: 14.9, 2.8, 17.5, 0.1.
