Four time banner winner MMALP Micah is an outstanding grandson of the great herdsire Pucara Kahuna. Micah's sire's dam LCA Elana comes from great genetics and also has quite the show record herself winning 4 banners and placing first at The Futurity. Elana was sired by Grand Marnier, a MacGyver son, and a two time banner winner. Putting Kahuna and Elana together produced Kahuna's Casper, Micah's sire. Casper won a total of 10 banners in his show career, a Judge's Choice, and a first place at the AOBA National Fleece Show. The bottom half of Micah's pedigree is solid. His dam Synergy's Duchess is a Sierra Bonita's MacGyver's Synergy daughter and while she was never shown herself, her sire Synergy has produced a multitude of champions for Wilkins Ranch and Great Lakes Ranch. Micah has great genetics and they are Full Peruvian.
Dr. Norm Evans Skin Biopsy Report:
MMALP Micah was biopsied as a 50 month old light fawn Suri male. His ARI# is 32546620. His 15X scan shows fiber clusters that are uniform in shape and placement within his connective tissue. His density is 40.5 follicles SQ MM of skin and his S/P ratio from 20 typical fiber clusters averages 9.3 to 1. He grades level 4 of 4 gland structure. 100% of his secondary fibers show medullation. Eighty secondary fibers averaged 22.1 microns while 40 primary fibers averaged 35.5 microns. This equates to a micron variation of 13.4 microns. These fiber stats figure an AFD of 23.52 microns.
A random sample of fleece from Micah's side was taken on 9/19/17, just after Micah had turned 4 years old. The histogram came back with an AFD of 26.3 microns. Eight months later a larger sample was sent in so that Micah could be part of the 2018 EPDs. This histogram came back with a 28.6 micron AFD. Micah's EPD results can be seen by clicking on the EPDs link.
The things most outstanding about Micah's fleece are its great luster, its outstanding lock structure, its consistent lock style across the body, and its very good staple length. He has a lot of fleece and that may seem puzzling considering his density, but not so much when one considers the fact he is a large Suri male. He brings an outstanding conformation, great size with a very good substance of bone, and beautiful fleece coverage on his legs and his head to the genetics he will pass along to his offspring. We just love that size, that coverage, and his outstanding Suri head style. He just flat out carries himself and stands like a champion everywhere he goes. We will breed him to females that have fleeces with density and fineness that need to improve on their body size, lock structure, and luster.
