Prime Starrr, aka "Rocky", is a compact male with a correct, sturdy, proud conformation, and knock-out fleece. Take a look at his 2017 histogram: at 2 1/2 years of age his AFD is 20, spin fineness 19.3, >30 is only 1.3%, and STAPLE LENGTH is 102.6! The AOA fleece judge commented on this being a BIG fleece--Jude didn't know that he's actually a compact guy.
Prime Starrr has beautiful definition of bundles with long staple length, tight and uniform crimp, and a bright fine fleece rounds out the picture. He also has an excellent bite. Even his leg and neck fleece get sent to the mill for yarn--they are better than most others' prime fleeces!
None of this should surprise--his dam, Accoyo America Morning Star is a full-Accoyo Ullysses daughter. When I bought her at the 2009 Parade of Champions, Greg Mecklum pointed out to me that Morning Star had the best uniformity scores on histogram of any alpaca in their catalogue!
Rocky's sire, Gem State's Optimus Prime, is a son of the acclaimed PC Running Late--a fawn Accoyo Titan son known for long staple length, fineness, and bright fleece.

Despite his compact size, Rocky likes to take the lead in a group of males. I don't think I've ever seen another male try to dominate him. He is calm and easy to handle, with a proud presence wherever he goes. Rocky would make an excellent herdsire for a high quality huacaya breeding program--he can definitely improve the quality of most females. We have bred him to our top huacaya girl--a Matrix daughter. They both have fineness, uniformity of micron, density, and great crimp, but Prime Starrr adds his fantastic staple length--and his perfect bite is a great asset.

Way to go, Rocky! He has his first ultrasound-proven pregnancy!! Due in December, 2018.
