Leviticus is a handsome boy! His exceptional pedigree, superb conformation, and strong fiber quality are sure to produce top offspring. He is a two-time Color Champion that also holds eight 1st place show ribbons.
Leviticus products sell out in our store each season. Whether it’s his bright silver grey year or his hats and mittens, nothing stays in stock for long. Everyone loves his boy.
He offers strong genetics from top alpaca herdsires that include Aussie Guns-N-Roses, Peruvian Hemingway, Snowmass Nova, Peruvian Don Julio G159, and PCS Accoyo El Nino.
Issue 2 of the America Alpaca Journal (published by Snowmass Alpacas) referred to El Nino as the most influential sire produced by Pacific Crest Alpacas (later known as Accoyo America). El Nino was exceptionally prepotent for the production of density, staple length, and superior micron-adjusted uniformity in his off-spring. The genetics for those characteristics combined particularly well with those carried by Peruvian Hemingway descendants, which produced the fineness and higher frequency crimp style favored in the show ring, and El Nino’s offspring and descendants were dominant for many years.
Leviticus lives true to his ancestors and their amazing fiber traits. He has beautiful light silver grey fiber that offers strong crimp, low micro count, and amazing staple length. He is in the top 10% for EPDs, with staple length at the forefront of these ratings.
And what we love even more is he passes these traits on to his offspring! His first cria arrived in 2022 and she is a wonderful example of his excellent fiber. Olivia is a dark fawn that is dense, full of well defined crimp, and shows strong staple length. She is everything we hoped Leviticus would deliver.
Leviticus is well balanced in his demeanor and a great boy. He’ll eat from your hand and walk calmly on a halter, but when it is time to breed, he brings all his manhood out for the ladies. He stands tall, orgles loudly, and is the master of making the ladies drop for breeding. We lovingly refer to him as Fonzi, because all the ladies start dropping for him the moment he enters the paddock.
Color Genotype: EEaa
Leviticus’ ASIP alleles show he has a black allele in both locations. His MC1R alleles shows he has no dilution. This genotype combination tells us Leviticus cannot produce light colored offspring. He will produce offspring that are dark fawn or darker, with a tendency for darker colors. Leviticus’ testing shows he also carries the classic grey gene.
