ARI# 1362305 | DOB: 8/7/2003
IF YOU WANT TRUE BLACK OR SILVER GREY, DIAMOND IS YOUR GIRL!! She is a beautiful, strong, healthy girl, excellent mother, attentive to her cria with plenty of milk which is shown by their rapid growth and daily activity. She's an easy birther in record time from start to finish. Her fiber is crimpy and dense with unbelievable fineness for a girl registered as true black even at her age (23 AFD at about 12 years old). As time goes along she adds more and more silver as is the case with her sire....

Description

INCREDIBLE DENSITY AND LASTING FINENESS IN THIS BOY

His fiber results at just shy of 9 years old are amazing!
2015 Histogram - AFD 20.5; SD 4.4; CV 21.2; %>30 3.3; CF 96.3; still this fineness at 9 years of age for grey is amazing!

His biopsy follicle test (via Ian Watt) is even more impressive!
Density - 62.8/mm with a Secondary:Primary fiber ratio of 13.1:1.
Only 3 grey alpacas have ever tested higher in density and no grey alpacas have a higher S:P ratio (in fact, only 7 alpacas in ANY color have a higher S:P ratio - including white!). You'll have trouble finding a grey to put up a combination of those kinds of numbers anywhere!

And Diego’s lineage is impressive, too - PPeruvian Pluro, Danko, grandsire Crescent Moon’s Rayo Del Sol (6x Grand Color Champ) and Sire Emerald Farms Rincon Cloud, 2005 AOBA Silver Nat’l Grand Champion, are enough reason to want him in your breeding program!

And if that wasn't enough, check out his EPDs!


Diego has many cria on the ground & every one of them is lovely. He is clearly passing on his amazing fineness to his cria.

Diego’s string of blues began in ’07 with a rave review from Judge Wade Gease: “This young man had a presence as soon as he entered the ring…his feet glided across the grass, his toes pointed straight ahead…he’s consistent throughout…good density and wonderful fineness…beautiful conformation”. That was just the beginning followed by Wade praising him again at AlpacaMania for his “exceptional conformation, extreme fineness, beautiful crimp and consistent fiber character”. He continued to stock pile blues and more at every show and fiber exhibition he went to until he began breeding.

Diego has a sweet personality, isn’t skittish and comes right to us or visitors. His fiber is exceptional and buttery fine, his micron stats have always been great for a light animal let alone his coloring! They rank right alongside with some of the best in the nation! His fineness, luster, excellent dense coverage, beautiful typey head and strong bone structure will add great qualities to any herd.

Thanks to Epic Alpacas & Patagonia Estates for giving us an opportunity to own this amazing boy!
