Meet our up-and-coming herdsire, Eleven. On a scale of 0 - 10 ... You guessed it, he's an 11!
DOB: AUGUST 14, 2011
DAM: DLA Peruvian Benita
SIRE: St Marys Lemurian
Eleven comes from coveted lines of stunning huacaya Alpacas.
Eleven's grandmother,Pperuvian Puka Pollera, an outstanding female import, left her mark on the North American alpaca industry. Puka was imported from the Conchatanca herd in Peru and produced some of the most sought–after alpacas in North America. The Conchatanca herd produced some of the finest and densest alpacas ever found making animals from this region highly treasured. Her sons DLA Peruvian Thunderbolt and DLA Peruvian Pastoro became extraordinary herdsires and their offspring have been winning in the show ring for years.
Eleven's grandfather, Solar de Peru, has his own legacy. From the Alianza region, another famous alpaca region of Peru, this herdsire passed on his superior genetics, conformation, and fiber to each of his offspring. His owner noted, in particular, how Solar de Peru "passes on fiber filled faces, dense topknots and crimpy fiber with long staple length". Solar de Peru's dam Ppperuvian Sunflower, was an import from the third Peruvian importation. Solar was owned and used as a herdsire at Driscoll Alpacas in Canada where he was referred to as "a top breeding stud". Solar is the father of the first registered twins born in North America.
Eleven has carried over the density, crimp and staple length these lines are known for, with a 3 year old fleece that is 18.6 microns with a comfort factor of 98.8%.
Eleven has wonderful conformation and a friendly, sweet disposition. With his exceptional lineage and luxurious fibre, he will make an outstanding herd sire. We used him for 2 breedings and are currently waiting to see the results this summer.
