This sweet boy came to us quite unexpectedly in the Fall of 2014 when we were looking to bring a companion in for our younger male Berberis who had been recently separated from the girls and was too young to be alone with the big boys. He had not been registered or named as yet; so we found it only fitting to name him Montauk. (The montauk daisy will show up in your Fall garden when you least expect it.)
Montauk has the sweetest face and disposition. He has bright white, crimpy, long fleece that is very dense
At age 5 his micron count is 21.6 with a standard deviation of 4.6.
He has consistently placed in the Top 1-10% EPD Test results since 2015 with his latest (2017)being 1%: # 26 out of 22,959 for %F>30, #80 for AFD, #83 for SF, #213 for %M, and 5%: #783 for SDAFD, and #1139 for MC
He is a virtual melting pot of fantastic Peruvian, Alianza, Accoyo and Bolivian bloodlines:
On both his Sire (Nineveh's Nube) and Dam's (Mohican's Christa) side - Alianza - from Peruvian Hemingway who is believed to have had the most profound impact on the quality of the alpacas outside of South America.
On his Dam's side is Mister Antonio; one of Hemingway's best son's.
On his Sire's side, Peruvian Bueno; picked #1 choice by 3 of the Country's leading breeders, who produced more "Get of Sires" than any male in the Country.
Next throw in some Accoyo - all on his Sire's side - from PPeruvian Caligula; All American Futurity Herdsire and AOBA Get of Sire Winner. PPPeruvian Augusto - Record breaking highest selling alpaca - sold in 2000 for $226,000. & AOBA Breeders Choice Winner; and then, MFI PeruvianWellington; believed to be the best offspring of Augusto.
Last but not least - add in Bolivian on his Sire's side - from Acero Marka's Rockamundo; one of Canada's top producing macho males - a direct import from Bolivia. He produced IAOC Bolivian Bella (Montauk's great grand dam) a blue ribbon winner for whom the Judge's comment was "what we should all be striving to breed for!"
It's no wonder why his fiber stats are so good!
