Dr. Jeri Booher writes:
The genes of Hemingway
are very evident in Valedar, and he is very close to being the splitting image of his grandsire. He is one of the densest juveniles to ever be produced from TIMBERLAND ALPACAS
, and at five years of age, retains a fleece micron count of 19. Valedar's crias are doing very well in the show ring, and exhibit that wonderful Hemiaccoyo™ fleece with locks dividing up into tiny bundles, lots of brightness, crimp and fineness. A Valedar daughter was recently the highest selling female at the Parade of Champions Auction at $80,000.
Despite his white color, Valedar does possess the colored genetics to throw color in his progeny, especially when bred to a colored female. Valedar very proudly wears the designation as one of the main foundation herdsires for Timberland Alpacas.VALEDAR WILL PERMANENTLY RESIDE IN INDIANA.
Timberland values Valedar's cria so highly, that the majority of his female cria have been integrated into their highly successful breeding program. In the 2007 Herdsire Edition (Page 153) of Alpacas Magazine, Timberland states:
"Victor's Valedar has always imparted fineness to his offspring, and at eight years old, still boasts a 21-micron, high-frequency fleece. The female offspring out of Valedar make great foundation females because of their fineness, have the ability to produce a very high frequency crimp, even if bred to herd sires that show a wide variety of crimp styles. Timberland has rarely sold its Valedar females, and has retained most of them as its foundation stock."
He is a premier son of Victor
(deceased) and will be available for LIMITED (10) outside breedings.
