Bidding Info


Big Bad John is a handsome and regal young male. Tall, square, upright, and straight, he is the son of SBS Crown Prince and grandson of the one and only Torbio, making for a very strong pedigree. His fleece is fine (1st shearing was 16.9 AFD, 3.5 SD), uniform, dense, and loaded with luster.
He was orphaned at 4 months old, which resulted in a serious fleece break, so he was not shown as a juvie, but showed very well as a yearling and beyond.

Outstanding EPD 3% for AFD, SD, SF, and %>30. Top 15% for MSL & FW.

Big Bad John's biopsy results have arrived and are impressive. At the time of biopsy, he ranks as the most uniform Suri ever tested by Alpaca Consulting USA (overtaking our sire, Bold Ruler). Ian Watt states "the SD's for each fiber population and the population differential are simply stunning." Coupled with the outstanding uniformity is great density at 65.6 follicles per sq mm, and an impressive 12.3:1 secondaries to primaries ratio. Primaries averaged 23.3 micron, and secondaries 18.8 micron, for a differential of 4.5 micron...again, outstanding. From the biopsy report, the micron range of all primary fibers evaluated fall inside of the micron range of all secondary fibers evaluated...a HIGHLY DESIRED trait.

If your herd is lacking uniformity, this is your guy!
Add uniformity and density, without sacrificing fineness, staple length, or luster. Put all that on a solid frame with a pleasing head style, and calm but confident personality. He has begun his breeding career on our ranch. Get in on this guy before he starts putting babies on the ground because his value will definitely increase.
