Tuscan's Semper Fi di Bella Vita

ARI# 32268843   D.O.B. 8/17/2011  (8 yrs)

Huacaya, Male, Proven | Light Fawn

Full Peruvian
Sire: Sunny Mesa's Tuscan Gold | ARI# 1197709  | Light Fawn |
Dam: Sunset Hills Zeph's Zsa Zsamora | ARI# 30016143  | White 

Semper Fi is a full Peruvian and 5/8 Accoyo male from a breeding that has repeated its excellence in every cria. The first two crias from this cross were females, then a male arrived in 2011 and Semper Fi is his name. Perfect in conformation and with great commanding presence, as all the Tuscan crias have, his fleece has density, fineness, and brightness to rival suri luster; not to mention uniformity and a buttery soft hand that makes you want to keep your hands in it forever. Semper Fi is the third cria from this dam/sire cross. He was named after the Marine's motto Semper Fi (Fidelis), meaning "always faithful", because of his faithful adherence to the genetic code in his DNA. Predictable excellence is observed in the offspring from the cross of Sunny Mesa's Tuscan Gold and Sunset Hills Zeph's Zsa Zsamora, daughter of multichampion Zephyrus (Roayl Fawn) and out of Iris, a Caligula daughter. Semper Fi's older full sister, Toscana, sold in the top 10% of prices at the AOBA auction several years ago. Semper Fi's other full sister, Zahara, sold sight unseen for a very respectable price based on her sister's reputation, her own show record and her genetic excellence. Semper Fi's show career started at the 2012 Futurity where he placed a very competitive 2nd place. Semper Fi earned his first championship at the 2012 ABR Fall Festival Fleece show, and he has earned 3 others in both halter and fleece shows. He is a superb example of his breed and represents the future at NorTex Alpacsas.


Check out his 4-year old histogram to note the lasting fineness of the Tuscan Gold offspring. At 4 years old, his fleece is still below 20 micron and has a comfort factor of 98.8, meaning he only has 1.2% of fibers over 30. That translates to beautiful, buttery soft yarn and end product. Need that lasting fineness in your herd without sacrificing density? Semper Fi, with his Tuscan Gold lineage, is expected to deliver these excellent, predictable results.

Reserve Color & Champion First Place - 2013 ABR Fall Festival Fleece Roundup. Scored 80 total points - 18.5 for fineness/handle, 7 out of 8 for micron, 6.5 out of 7 for length, 8.5 out of 10 for lack of guard hair, 10.5 out of 20 for weight. Judge: Sara Jane McClellan. Comments were "very bright! Uniform character, excellent handle.: She also said there were some primaries at the edge." :( My bad! This was the judge's nice way of saying that better skirting would have raised hs score - perhaps enough to repeat his Color Champion fleece from the previous year at this show. Amazingly, he walked in his halter class at this show. Difficult to explain that one with his show record to date at bigger, tougher shows. It happens!
Second Place - 2014 National Western Stock Show. Judge: Sharon Loner
