Finest histogram of the 26 alpacas we had tested in 2023. Her fleece is silky, drapey and supple like warm butter with minimal guard hair.
Her entire pedigree is strong top to bottom.
LZZ's fleece is uniformly fine, silky and crimpy with minimal guard hair. Slick and silky like her sire...you can hardly feel it and don't want to stop feeling it, let alone pick her up and take her home. This is typical of her sire J.T.'s progeny...he's a multi blue ribbon winner stamping his image consistently.
Her award winning dam is a high quality rose gray with the lineages of Black Epic and Hannaruh and our home-grown champion Constantino who placed at the shows for five years and who produced two blue ribbon sons when he was 15. Constantino's dam was our first alpaca, Trufflina, who beat a Futurity champion male with her fleece in 2000 (PNAA judge Julie Skinner) and who also put one pound per day for the first nine days on her sixth cria (Carmelina). Trufflina went on to produce a total of 13 crias..a champion, a reserve champion and other winners. Trufflina's sire was Peruvian Andrajo (a white Alianza) who is well known in the northwest, especially in some of the best gray alpacas. Trufflina's seventh fleece looked like a tui fleece and Constantino produced a black daughter (Summer Ember) who won a fleece show CH with her sixth fleece...oh yeah, and a son (Flint) who got JC fleece with his sixth fleece, so lingering quality in this line too.
Lady Zsa Zsa has a sweet disposition and will only produce the best as she has many relatives and ancestors known for quality across the board...solid producers, heavy milkers, lingering fleece, and plenty of award winners.
She went to her first shows at CABA - AWE in 2023 as a young juvie and placed at the end of the class, however the judge said in the oral reasons that she checked all the boxes...and he said that twice... as well as uniformity, fineness and tight crimp.
We've bred her sire to Shaddow daughters and now we have some Jive Talkin daughters to breed to Shaddow. See Isla Mae's fleece.
Uniform fineness and show quality fleece goes back at least six generations on both sides of LZZ's pedigree.
