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 beautiful fleece exhibiting all the characteristics of both of her parents. We named her Rock Garden's Perucoyo Peony.
At age 3 her micron continues to be Grade 1 - Ultra Fine <20 microns.
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.
Her 2017 report placed her in the Top 1% for %M; the Top 5% for AFD, SF, %F>30, MC and the Top 10% for SDAFD.
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
