Megabuck Mink - RIP

Huacaya Male True Black

R.I.P. Losing Megabuck was like losing a best friend. He had the energy and spirit of 10 alpacas yet always behaved like a gentleman for me. His lines will continue on our farm through his descendants. When Megabuck was used for breeding or behavior checks, his orgling would cause ALL the females in the pasture, irregardless of pregnancy status, to run up and gather around. They knew he was special too! As the oldest male he was alpha, but 95% of his life he was kept in the male herd. He w ...

Snowmass RRoyal Fox

Huacaya Herdsire (Male) Medium Silver Grey

AOA# 30820500 DOB: 7/21/200715 yrs
Fox is 14, but he acts like he's 7. If you want better EPDs and uniform, fine, pigmented gray fleeces with no guard hair, here you go! This line produces lingering 13 to 19 micron pigmented gray fleeces...consistently. I combined Fox's first five fleeces into one lot to make yarn at Heart and Soul and they commented on the uniformity of the lot. Thanks to his sire, Royal Bronze, Fox is a master at overall uniformity, removing guard hair and fining down fleeces and adding more crimps p ...

Details
We love our beautiful and elegant Bon Bon. She is one of our kid's favorites. It's interesting how they know the good ones. Her pedigree is rock solid with award-winning black and gray bloodlines known for quality fleece, soundness and productivity. She's very people friendly, playful and too smart!

She hit the ground at 21 pounds and stood up at a little over ten minutes old! She gained 1/2 pound per day. Fully grown, she is average size.

Bon Bon inherited the best from parents. Her fleece is a deep black with a very silky handle, is very bright, perpetually very fine with good density and aligned medium crimp and a long staple length. She has good coverage and very minimal guard hair. Her conformation, movement, proportions and bite are excellent. She needs no further improvement in her conformation and substance.

We used to own 4P Lanarks Locota (LF) and 6P Dona Jacira (MSG), both possessed excellent health, structure and dense, fine silky fleeces. Pedigree includes Patagonia's Compadre and P. Guellermo. Her black parents and her grey full brother have produced 4 to 4 1/2 lb. *adult* blankets in the 25 micron range (27 is average for adult huacaya per Dr. Escobar's book) with longer than average staple length and exceptional handle.

Her full brother is our award-winning Silver Dust and her 3/4 brother is our Patriot who placed a close 2nd at AWE behind Patagonia.

Bon Bon outdoes herself every time when bred to our Snowmass RRoyal Fox. (Her dam gave us herdsire quality sons Silver Dust and Patriot.) Her three crias by Fox (Gallant, Ebony and Calumet) are healthy and correct, typey with very dense, fine, crimpy, very bright and extremely silk-soft black fleeces. Gallant is definitely herdsire quality.

(NOTE: Name in the ARI database is Constantino's Bon Bon. If certificate is transferred, we'll make the change to KCAF Megabuck's Bon Bon.)
