WHISTLING PINES BOLD RULER
Alpaca , Suri , Herdsire (Male) |Proven |White
AOA# 35117803 | DOB: 7/22/2015
Crown Prince offspring are known for having amazing luster, and Bold Ruler is no exception. He claimed the Reserve Champion banner in his first show, and the judge noted an "exorbitant amount of luster". If a person adds to that his cool, slick handle, his excellent fineness and uniformity, and his well-organized lock with density, then with Bold Ruler’s fleece you have the complete package. Bold Ruler stands straight and correct. His demeanor is excellent with a calm, confident personality. His first shearing produced an impressive amount of fleece at 10 months of age, tipping the scale at just under 6 pounds of grade 1 fiber and with locks longer than 6 inches.
Bold Ruler has excellent EPDs! Check them out by clicking on the EPDs link. The amazing thing is that Bold Ruler had a skin biopsy done by Ian Watt in the spring of 2018 and it backed up all the things his EPDs say he brings to the table. His density on the biopsy was an excellent and way above average at 68.9 follicles per sq mm. His primary fibers AFD was 21.6 microns while the secondary fibers AFD was 17.7 for only a 3.9 micron spread. The SDs for those two fiber populations were 2.3 and 2.0 respectively and all the primary fiber sizes fall within the secondary fibers size range, a highly desired trait to pass on to his offspring. He shows outstanding uniformity in his fleece and these results lead to Ian Watt stating in his concluding comments, “The uniformity in this Suri male is spectacular and is the best we have tested!”
We are proud to co-own Bold Ruler with Whistling Pines Ranch in Wisconsin. We feel Bold Ruler will be an impact male in our herds and he could be one for your herd, too. Contact either of us to arrange a breeding to this stellar young male. He will be standing stud in Wisconsin in 2023.

We are willing to do financing. We may also be willing to offer a discount for a cash purchase. If the purchase of an alpaca is financed, no interest will be charged if paid off in 1 year. Stud fees must be paid for in advance. Transport of a purchased alpaca to the buyer's farm is the buyer's responsibility unless some other agreed upon arrangement is made. If a breeding to one of our males is purchased, the transport of the female to and from our farm is the buyer's responsibility.
Stud fees will be completely paid in advance. The cost of transporting the female to be bred to and from our farm for breeding, including the cost of CVIs, will be the responsibility of the female's owner. We will board the female for 3 months at no charge to the owner and after those 3 months will board her at the price of $3/day until she leaves. We will pay for the ultrasound to confirm that the female is bred.
