Sun Tzu is a mellow male with outstanding fleece and conformation. His sire, Derwydd Accoyo Manchu, is the only alpaca I know that has to be shorn twice a year. This male continues his sire's fantastic fleece characteristics--he is DENSE, he is FINE, and he has beautiful, long, fine bundles of high frequency crimped fleece. His maternal grandsire, also Sun Tzu, is a son of the Canadian legend, Jolimont 2 Peruvian Alpamayo, who carried a 22 micron fleece at 11 years of age!
Sun Tzu is a medium sized male with a beautiful head and his dam's attractive facial features. Our veterinarian points out that Sun Tzu has a perfect bite that is worth breeding for! He is so sweet and easy to handle, this is one of the characteristics passed on by his sire. Several judges have commented on his knock-out fleece--his is always the finest fleece in the class. (The histogram listed is from 2015 at age 17 months). He's on his 3rd fleece now, and it is incredible--fine, crimpy bundles, wonderful handle, and DENSE!!!. Really, he could be shorn twice a year like his sire, to keep him comfortable in hot or humid conditions.
He has the potential to pass lots of color, since his maternal grandmother is medium brown and his grandsire is light fawn.
So, buy him if you like, but I'd be perfectly happy to keep this guy on my stud row!
