FLEECE STATS 2018:- AFD 24.9, SD 4.5, CV 18.1 , %>30 10
If anyone is in any doubt why TOFT Rastaban is still in our breeding programme at nine years old then these stats speak for themselves. Consitency adn uniformity he mainstains in spades within a very dense fleece. His offspring continue to surprise us with their density and uniformity.
TOFT Rastaban has an impressive show record and has excelled himself as an adult taking Reserve Champion ot the British Alpaca Futurity 2013. 1st and Champion in the 2013 Heart of England Spring Alpaca Fiesta and 1st in the 2013 British Alpaca Society National Show.
At 9 years old TOFT Rastaban is maintaining a fine, dense uniform fleece with a well organised crimp that is very consistent throughout his blanket to his extremities. His Dam TOFT Rabe has given us many prize winnning alpacas over the years and his Sire TOFT Jaina is forever consistent in providing excellent conformation and fine fleeces.
TOFT Rastaban has produced some very fine, extremely consistent and very dense offspring, some of which can be viewed on farm. Last year we placed him over some of our white girls with excellent results. TOFT Flabebe is a stunning fawn female exhibiting impressive staple length, excellent density in a very uniform fleece both in colour and micron. TOFT Flabebe is now resident at Herts Alpacas.
As you can see from his statistics above TOFT Rastaban's consistency is reflected in his stats year on year as he continues to exhibit his fathers longevity of fineness. If it your aim to breed alpacas which maintain real quality throughout their long lives then this boy has some of the main traits you are looking for. He continues to produce consistent coloured offspring with impressive density. If they go on in time to exhibit the longevity of fineness and quality inherent in their pedigree TOFT Rastaban will have bred a legacy to be proud of.
TOFT Jaina and TOFT Rastaban are brothers and sons of Peruvian Skywalker of TOFT. Like their father they continue to exhibit the most postive of traits in coloured alpaca genetics and as such they are unique. If its longevity of quality in your fleeces you are pursuiing then you need to come along to TOFT have a look at these males and more importantly their progeny to see what these traits an do for you herd long term. Do we know what we are talking about? Well we've been breeding alpacas since the first imports into the UK. We've alwasy bred for longevity and sustainability. We've continoulsy selvetd for those traits and now 21 years later we sense the strength in depth coming through in spades and the Peruvian Skywalker of TOFT bloodline has had a great deal to do with that journey.
