A beautiful girl - the product of 2 of AOA's EPD Top 5 Trait Leaders of the National Herd for 2015.
We expected this pairing to bring an outstanding 2015 cria and it did, a beautiful dark fawn girl with fine, long, crimpy, dense fleece exhibiting all the characteristics of both of her parents. We named her Rock Garden's Perucoyo Peony. Her 1st year fiber stats were fantastic! 18.5 microns, Standard Deviation 4.7, Coefficient 25.2%, Spin Fineness, 18.7, Fibers>30 1.9% with a comfort factor of 98.1%. Her very first EPD report in 2016 placed her in the Top 1% for %F>30 and the Top 5% for AFD, SDAFD, SF, MC and %M.
Peony's 2017 report places her in the Top 1% for %M; the Top 5% for AFD, SF, %F>30, MC and the Top 10% for SDAFD.
Her 2017 fiber stats were: 21.0 microns, SD 4.8, Coefficient 22.8%, Spin Fineness 20.7 microns, %F>30 4.7% with a comfort factor of 95.3%.
Her dam is our girl, Gianna's Peruvian Ivy, who in 2013, at age 7 was named one of AOA's Top 5 EPD Trait Leaders for SDAFD and was in the top 1 % for the traits %F>30 and MC and the Top 10% for the traits AFD, SF and SDMC. In 2014, at age 8, she missed being in the Top 5 for SDAFD by 1 - she was #6 - but was in the Top 1% for SDAFD, %F>30 and MC and again in the Top 10% AFD, SF, SDMC and %M and at age 9 in 2015 had again been named a Top 5 Trait Leader for SDAFD, and continued to be in the Top 1% for %F>30; and the Top 10% for AFD, MC, SF & %M. At the age of 11 she continues to place in the Top 1% for SDAFD & %F>30 and the Top 5% for AFD, SF, MC and %M. As of 2017 her micron count was 24.4.
Her sire is our herdsire, Rock Gardens Accoyo Cosmo who has once again been named one of AOA's Top 5 EPD Trait Leaders for 2017 in fleece weight and will be featured in their presentation during the Alpaca Owners Association National Show and Auction in 2018; this is his third year in a row. He has consistently been in the Top 1-15% for AFD, SF, %F>30, and %M, MSL & FW since 2013
