Goldyn Rae's Nikola is a stellar white male out of our Accoyo dam Illyria and Mont Blanc son Alejandro. This kid is developing a very nice fleece with lustrous, flat, independent locks. The regrowth from his first shearing is amazing!
Dam Illyria's pedigree is a who's who of accoyo royalty. Adding to the Sedoso & Uribe lines from her sire are the extremely rare & sought-after Ganador & Starbuck lines from her dam. Illyria is holding great fiber stats including a 22.6 micron at six years of age. Her offspring have top 1-5% EPDs. Illyria produced an AMAZING white female (Leda) who sports TOP 1-3% 2019 EPDs in the first FOUR fiber categories and killed it with a 76.6 biopsy Density. Leda's white daughter Yara won Supreme Champion at the 2020 AOA National Show as a juvenile. Illyria's 2017 female (Hopi) returned top EPDs as well and both have very fine, low SD and low greater than 30 fleece stats. Nikola no doubt has the potential for similar heritable characteristics!
Sire BBFAI Mont Alejandro won First Place and White Color Champion at the 2017 AOA National Show. He is a gorgeous male with excellent luster, tons of fiber, and a gentle disposition. Alejandro's sire, HHSF Accoyo Lafite's Mont Blanc, needs no introduction! Mont Blanc boasts TOP 1% in 6 out of 7 EPD traits for the last 2 years! He won multiple Color Championships and Judge's Choice awards, was named Reserve Light Herdsire of the Year at the 2012 & 2013 Futurity, and has produced multiple champion-winning offspring. Alejandro's 29 Month Biopsy Results:
DENSITY: 60.25 follicles SQ MM
S/P RATIO: 10.4 to 1
AVG SECONDARY FIBERS: 17.4 microns
AVG PRIMARY FIBERS: 29.2 microns
MICRON VARIATION (SPREAD): 11.8 microns
AFD: 18.52 microns
This kid has all the potential and we are excited to watch him develop. Dam Illyria's daughter produced an Alejandro female that won Supreme Champ at the 2020 National Show as a juvie. Illyria's retained stats are impressive and we expect Nikola to benefit from the same heritable characteristics.
***Nikola has two confirmed pregnancies!***
