The results came back from the skin biopsy which are very favourable:

Below is a write up from Jim Watts, MV. Sc, Ph.D:

He is a rather special male!!!

Jim Watts analysis:

The 14 month old alpaca, FDA Rembrandt, has high levels of fiber density and fiber length. The density reading of 67.7 follicles per square millimeter will be lower when the animal reaches mature body size, but not sufficient to alter the fact that it is a high density animal. This view is supported by ...

Sephora is a gorgeous STUD female and lives true to her name, "Stunning" Sephora. She has great bone substance, full coverage, and a long stapled fleece with brightness and uniformity. Sephora even at age 8, as a breeding female has stats we love. Take a look at her histogram for this year-- AFD 19.0 SD 3.9 CV 20.4% >30 1.4% Royal fineness @ age 8! No surprise given her great genetics: El Nino, Caligula, Hemingway and Legacy.

Sephora's 2015 daughter, Charlotte, now has 2 championships under her belt, RCC at OABA and CC at VAOBA!

Sephora's 2017 daughter, Chanelle, sired by Starshire's Vicente arrived as a beautiful 21 pound fawn over black! In October 2017, Sephora and her daughter Chanelle joined the Rare Gem Alpaca foundation herd (co-owned with Diamond Valley Alpacas). These girls are exactly what we look for in our foundation-- elite-fleece-- lasting fineness, density, temperament, proven champion pedigree producers.

AND, the the icing on the cake with these girls?! Versatility-- these girls can take a color program in many different directions. Sephora is a proven champion producer in color as well as a prior appaloosa producer. What fun we will have with these girls!!

UPDATE: Sephora is confirmed bred to harlequin appaloosa herdsire, Vintage Cashmere U-Taupe-ia "Taupie". We are anxiously awaiting this cria... to say the least!
