Details
RKR's LITTLE ABE is out of Medium Silver Grey My Sunshine Sally and multi-champion classic Medium Silver Grey WLK Silver Threads. Sally is the only Grey offspring out of MacGyver's Armed & Dangerous. Silver Threads has passed away. He was well known for consistently producing grey when bred to grey. Silver Threads was full Peruvian and had a pedigree with every alpaca on it being either rose grey or silver grey. Overall, you will find at least one grey Suri in each of the 4 previous generations of Abe’s pedigree making him a 5th generation grey male. So far all that grey in his pedigree is siring a lot of grey as he is 3 for 4 for siring grey and the three females that have their crias registered were a rose grey, a fawn, and it was the true black that didn't produce a grey. That cria was true black. He also had another cria out of silver grey that was grey, but hasn't been registered.

Abe has wonderful confirmation and a dense, lustrous, silver grey blanket. The locks are more of an open lock structure that hand spinners love, it is showing great staple length growth, and the fiber has a wonderful cool handle to it. At 15 months of age a quick test was done on his fleece and came back with an AFD of 21.9 microns and a SD of 5.4. A sample was sent in for a full fiber test from his first shearing at age 2 and the histogram results were good. An average fiber diameter of 23.1 microns with a standard deviation of 5.3 microns. Another fleece sample was submitted at age 3 to be part of the AOA's EPDs and Abe is maintaining his fineness pretty well. The results on that histogram were slightly better with an AFD of 22.9 microns and a SD of 5.1. The EPD rankings can be seen by clicking on the EPDs link.

The density and the secondary to primary spread are both outstanding!
