Jakaila Black Epic's Journie

Dam: PLA1 Silver Shikai | ARI# 842219  | Medium Silver Grey |

Top producer.

Journie ribboned in every show she was entered. A judge described her fleece as highly advanced for a grey and another commented on her brightness and long staple length. She is healthy with correct conformation, bite and proportions from her nose to her toes as well as a lovely, uniformly fine (low SD) and bright fleece. She has one of the most typey heads you'll find on a gray and a people friendly disposition.

Her sire is 7x champion Peruvian Black Epic who is considered to be the best black sires in the country. He's out of a grey dam, yet only 5 of Epic's 89 registered offspring are grey at this writing. Epic is known for his uniformly fine and very dense fleece and his offspring have earned over 50 championships.

Epic's fleece statistics:
2000: 20.5/3.3/16.1/1.8 (cria fleece)
2001: 22.8/4.0/17.3/4.2; 4.5 lb. blanket
2003: 5.5 lb. blanket
2005: 15 pounds total!

Journie's fine-fleeced dam is a daughter of the famous Aussie Rockford and PLA's Silver Empress (dam of the famous black, Michelangelo). Coincidentally, I purchased by first alpacas from Pine Lake Alpacas.
