Details
Duke's 2014 fleece was sorted as grade 2 (two) by AFCNA.
Duke earns himself a position on herdsire row for his Bolivian/Chilean heritage and his fleece's lingering crimp character and softness (6+ years) with minimal visible guard hair on a sturdy, correct frame with excellent type and temperament.
Blues for halter and fleece at Alpacapalooza 2007 with four in the class in his third year winning ribbons.
RC cria fleece at AWE show!
At a herdsire review a few years ago, he was one of the finest, crimpiest mature blacks and his aligned crimp was still there in his sixth fleece. He has award-winning parents who nicked well to produce Duke's alpaca synergy!
Duke has impressed many top judge's with his beautiful, typey head and physique, fluid movement in all gaits, a fleece that is remarkable in regards to uniformity and character into his extremities and amazing lack of guard hair. The handle...silky softness, suppleness and bundles with aligned, well-defined crimp of medium amplitude and frequency is there too...even in his fourth fleece! Correct phenotype, correct stance and bite, presence, substantial bone and muscle, average size, a well-mannered temperament, strong libido and correct testicles rounds out what this nice male has to offer.

Six of the seven relatives in his pedigree are black and the other is DB/TB. Good pedigree productivity with multiple award-winning parents and other relatives.
