Tuscan Gold is setting a new standard of excellence. He is a complete package of perfect conformation, elite fleece characteristics with excellent bundling, brightness, crimp and uniformity. The brightness of his fleece rivals suri luster. He has total coverage of this fleece from his spectacular head to his toes. And does he have presence! He just knows he is something special. When we check his sheared fleece in at the shows, it invariably gathers admirers and then further inquiry on which animal this fleece belongs to. This fleece has earned multiple championships and every specialty ribbon there is, Judge's Choice, Best Brightness, Best Crimp, etc.
But a great herdsire is really measured by his offspring, and has Tuscan delivered! He stamps his babies with remarkable consistency for fine, well organized and crimpy fleece with his signature brightness on a beautifully balanced frame with good bone, extremely typey heads, complete leg coverage and his unmistakable presence. These babies have earned several Get of Sire awards for Tuscan Gold and several Breeders Best Three awards for Bella Vita Ranch. Our client list for Tuscan Gold offspring includes prestigious and discriminating farms such as Snowmass Alpacas and AL Pacas, among others. Several judges have also bred to Tuscan Gold, so he has that stamp of approval from those who should know!
Tuscan was chosen as the 2007 breeding partner for the one and only Misty Maiden, Dam of the Century, and several of her daughters at Pepper Pot Farm and The Alpaca Rosa, all champions, as well as champion females at other award winning farms like Safe Haven Farm and Irish Meadows. See these farm websites for details. Tuscan is full Peruvian and 3/4 Accoyo. He is an Augusto grandson and Leon great grandson through his sire and a Starr Khan grandson and Hemingway great grandson through his dam. With these great names in his pedigree, it is easy to see why he gathered multiple color championships. Tuscan descends from the award winning MFI Brock line which has produced multiple champion Tuscan siblings. It is prepotent in the genetics.
If you are looking to add presence, style, fabulous elite fleece with an incredible hand and extreme brightness, total body coverage, and great heads to your alpacas, Tuscan is your guy. Give us a call to discuss this great male who has proven his prepotency through his offspring. Not only is he improving fleece, but he is fixing conformation issues, hardest of the two to correct. If you like the teddy bear look huacayas with fabulous fleece, that's what he delivers. And we are getting ready to register his 100th cria in 2015. Look for that beautiful son, Tuscan's Centennial Gold, soon to be posted on our Open herd site and our ranch website, www.bellavitaranch.com.
