Franco is a Statuesque looking Male, with excellent crimp, superior staple length, brightness, buttery handle, and a very pleasing disposition. Histogram is 17.2! The color of this male is truly stunning- a nice deep maroon color that shines! Franco has the perfect “Teddy Bear” look with a very nice head and tight nose.
Judge David Barboza loved Franco when looking him over during the Herdsire Event Alpaca Amore Affaire early 2014. David requested a breeding and said “Now this is how I like to see my Males!”
We entered Franco’s Fleece at NWAS, Ursula Monro Noted: Nice fineness with uniformity of micron, style and color. Ursula awarded Franco Reserve Champion, and First Place in his color class!!
Franco’s Sire is Patagonia’s Ernesto a 7X Champion and Judges Choice winner. If you have seen Ernesto you would notice that the pair of these males look very much alike.
Franco’s first cria arrived August 2015. A True Black male with a typey head, excellent fiber coverage nose to toes, nice staple, and heavy bone. We are on the edge of our seats waiting to see how his fiber comes in after cria shearing!
