2 x Reserve Color Champion ALR Inti-Sapa's Ruffo's first off-spring are on the ground. Morris Mill's Loganberry delivered a beautiful healthy female in May, 2012. ALR Pamina is white and weighed 21.3 lbs at birth. We intend to rebreed Loganberry to Ruffo. Ruffo carries black genes through his grand dam on his sire's side, Derwydd Peruvian Inti-Sapa. He is maintaining his fineness year after year.
ALR Bella (dam Isabella) arrived June 27, 2013 - bay black and a little bit of white, weighing 18 lbs - she's just adorable.
Ruffo has grown into an impressive herd sire. His conformation is perfect, his fleece exquisite - it earned a blue ribbon and Reserve Champion in the 2010 AlpacaMania Fleece Show (judge Ruth Elvestad), and again at AlpacaMania 2011 (Judge Wini Labrecque commented on the very soft handle as well as uniformity throughout). His Dam, Sheebah, at age 15, had incredible fiber stats: AFD 21.1, SD 4.1, CD 19.7, %>30 3.0!! Ruffo also placed first in the halter class at AlpacaMania 2011 (Judge Kevin O'Leary).
Ruffo's grand sire, Pperuvian Ruffo G4574 was the number 1 pick in the elite Accoyo sale in Michigan in 1994, became part of the NWA herd, from where he was purchased by EP Cambridge and moved to Australia in 1995, where "he would become the fabric upon which a tapestry of success would be woven" (Alpacas Australia > No. 56 Winter 2008). Pperuvian Ruffo G4574 died in his sleep on April 16, 2008.
Ruffo's sire, Derwydd Peruvian Inti-Sapa, has an amazing show record: 4 x Get of Sire! He earned 8 blue ribbons between 2002-2004, including IOA, and he was Fawn Color Champion at the Monterey Pronk in 2003, and Reserve Color Champion at the Monterey Pronk 2004.
Ruffo is desperate for more work and is looking for a new home. We are looking at retirement in 2 years - make us a deal we can't refuse! 541-821-8071. We'll be glad to send you a fleece sample.
