Look at this young male's histogram. Fineness is his watchword. I know you aren't suppose to put a lot of weight on their first fleece but starting out at 15.3 AFD and CV of 19.0 is pretty amazing. Archimedes has superb bloodlines to include Legacy, Legacy Gold, Hemingway, Caligula, and Snowmaster on his sire's side. He also has Masterful and Grandmaster on his dam's side. He has excellent fleece characteristics to include outstanding crimp, fineness, and density. We know that Archimedes is show quality because he has won 2 Blue Ribbons in big classes of yearling white males at both the A-OK Alpaca Blastoff & TxOLAN Spectacular (2009). Just look at his dam, My Peruvian Intrigue, and his sire, The Invincible Nathaniel. Their combination of bloodlines is amazing. He is continuing to maintain his fineness as he gets older too. In 2010 his AFC was 17.9 and %>30 was 0.4! In July 2012, Archimedes first offspring hit the ground - a beautiful fawn boy!
