Juggernaut has done it again!!! What a gorgeous male this is...

We like what we are seeing thus far in this young boy. He has curls everywhere. We can't wait to see how his fleece further develops. So far Encore looks like he is going to be a show boy.

Encore's looks are striking...his fleece is a rich colored dark brown and his head, neck and legs are all symmetrically tipped in black. He certainly captures the attention of everyone that visits his farm. He has a pleasant personality and a nice presence.

Encore's conformation is perfect with a correct bite, solid frame, and good balance. His blanket is dense, super bright with a nice handle and has curls everywhere. He has a nice head and a cute topknot.

Encore comes from Champion lineage!! His sire, Juggernaut, is a 7X Champion herdsire, who is a very elite male. His siblings (all Juggernaut crias) dominated the show ring as juvi's! His 1/2 sister, Starlite (LB) is now
a 3X Color Champion taking JUDGE'S CHOICE, Color Championship and a Blue Ribbon as a 6 month old juvi at the Buckeye Show (her 1st show). His 1/2 sister, Shadow (TB), took a 2nd Place Ribbon at the Buckeye Alpaca Show out of a class of 11! Another 1/2 sister, Princess (LB), is now a 2X Reserve Champion. Wow, now that's impressive!

Breeding for black and grey? Breeding for color? Encore has one colorful background! His dam is true black, his grand-dam is medium silver grey and his grandsire is bay black. Encore's sire Juggernaut has produced crias in every color from true black, rose grey, silver grey, all the way to white. If you want color in your herd...then he is the male for you! We believe that when bred correctly, he too could produce black cria!

We are very pleased with what we are seeing in this little guy. With his award winning genetics, fleece structure, and great conformation, Encore can't help but do well in the show ring. He is certainly a nice male and has definite potential. Look for him at the shows this Fall.
