Holly's Highlander of High Plains

Holly’s Highlander of High Plains

What makes Highlander such a great male: excellent conformation including a square frame, large bones, heavy coverage, straight top line, short but wide muzzle the Super Sam head style that judges from around the world have selected as their favorite. Excellent fiber with great staple length, dramatic tight crimp style, great fineness and density combine with his gentle temperament to create this amazing herd sire. To look a little deeper into his genetics we can break down what has made this young male such a success: Super Sam's extreme conformational traits combined with his dramatic fleece style was just the beginning. Holly, the dam, is from HP Bonnie Heather, PPeruvian Javier's first offspring in Canada. Heather had very little guard hair and was extremely fine with excellent uniformity. Heather was bred to DLA Peruvian Velerio a white, super dense, high luster Accoyo male. This breeding produced Highlander's dam, Holly, a spitting image of Highlander. We are proud to co-own this great Super Sam son, Highlander with High Plains Alpacas. Highlander’s offspring will be for sale this year.
