Quechua Radiance is quite a "head turner", or at least the judges seem to think so! His luminous fleece demonstrates extreme locking to the skin, and it drips with luster. His heritage is 3/4 Accoyo. Radiance has SOLID BONE structure and a perfect conformation. His dam, Q'orianka was legendary on the show circuit and she has been one of our best producers. Both she and his Accoyo sire bring density to Radiance, and we are thrilled to have their handsome son. Even at 4 years of age, on his 5th fleece, he glows in the barn more than any other male, and he has one of the best fleeces of any of our suris.

Radiance has a compact, correct, sturdy conformation with BONE!! We have "deployed him" on larger girls, to bring down the cria size and it certainly worked with his first cria, Silken Radiance (his dam is very big!). Radiance has a trouble-free demeanor--not looking for trouble, but willing to stand up for himself. He has a rather "serious" personality, but is easy to handle and loves to be our example of beautiful luster and locking for visitors.

When we prepared his fleece for competition--it truly took me about 10 minutes to adjust to the luster and "glare" of his fleece on our shady patio!

Radiance's 2012 EPDs are excellent: AFD -0.9, %F>30:-3.4 (more below). and backing that up, his first cria has taken Color Champion at the 2014 International Alpaca Odyssey!

Take a look at his 2017 EPDs==How do you get top 25% AFD AND Top 25% Fleece Weight from a relatively compact male? THIS GUY IS LOADED WITH FLEECE!! Top 25% AFD, % Medullation, FW. Top 10% SDAFD Top 15% MSL.

***Radiance sells with 1 breeding reserved for our use--we don't want to lose track of this boy....
***Auction Breeding price is for "drive-by" breeding only.

Quechua Radiance is at our North San Francisco Bay farm, Alpacas of Marin. I took a look at him today (11/14/17) and he STILL looks fabulous! Fantastic luster and locking! (He likes to be praised...)

Silken Radiance was a bit of a "sleeper"--we knew he had great density and luster, with very well-defined ropey locks, but somehow the pieces did...
