Description

Perfect Storm is a fabulous Tuscan-Cocoa Puffe cria, whose color has been a subject of much debate, even with the judges. He is a wannabe gray as he has white fibers intermixed in his fleece but not enough to put him into indefinite or gray classes. The white fibers did not show up until he was about 2 years old. He only exhibited black and brown fibers. However, his neck and legs are dark silver gray. He most closely resembles dark rose gray in the blanket. Judge Mike Safley at 2011 GWAS tried hard to find white fibers, and after coming up empty, ended up placing Stormie 3rd but stating in his oral reasons that he didn't know what color Stormie was and that he was probably not on the color chart. Whatever his color, his fleece is STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL and very fine, especially for a dark colored fleece. Just like his full siblings, Prosecco and Black Silk, this guy is a nice, square framed alpaca with a beautiful head, total body coverage, and upright, bright attitude. His fleece has impressive character, is fine, uniform and crimpy. The brightness is evident, his sire’s trademark. He is as cute as he can be with a nice, easy going personality, his mother’s gift. Cocoa Puffe was the premier dam at Bella Vita for colored alpacas and has now joined our breeding program at NorTex Alpacas in north Texas. See her offspring, including one of our herdsires El Corazon` - an 8-time champion. In fact, most of Cocoa Puffe’s offspring have been champions, or at the very least consistent blue ribbon winners in level 5 shows. Sire Tuscan, a premier herdsire at Bella Vita is deceased, but was also a multiple champion and is stamping his perfection on his crias with remarkable consistency. This male will do well with browns, blacks and grays to add fineness, brightness and character to the fleece. Both his paternal and maternal lines have produced superior blacks.

Storm's first offspring, Navigator, is a beige cria out of Nova's Novena, with 8-month histogram of AFD 14.6, SD 3.7 CV 25.5% (cria fleece with tips) CF 100%, curve 26.0 Dg/mm (silky style fleece), and staple 85.0 mm. The same cross produced Hail Mary in 2015 who is medium fawn in color and fleece that is iridescent, very organized into bundles and fine.
