Boondocker (KBA's Boondocker)

Boondocker has won four First Place ribbons so far for 2016!

Boondocker is simply another excellent grey produced out of the Legend's Challenger of KPR bloodline. This junior herd sire is an absolutely beautiful silver grey - spotless conformation, great head and dense, fine, high-frequency fleece. The color of his fleece is 

absolutely breathtaking, absolutely beautiful! Impressive histogram to boot. At a young age, he is a sizable alpaca, and has shown interest in breeding. 

Boondocker's sire is a champion winner who is another carbon copy of the amazing Legend's Challenger of KPR. Boondocker genetics on his dam's side comes with fantastic density. His dam was sired by Patagonia's Kaspa and her grandsire is El Padre. 

Boondocker is a pleasure to work with and is very well mannered. Fabulous on a halter.

Boondocker would be sold with retained breedings.

FIRST RESERVE CHAMPIONSHIP AWARDED AT THE 2011 NATIONAL CHAMPIONS SHOW

Another carbon copy of the amazing Legend's Challenger of KPR! "Jack" started his show career this fall attending his first show only days after turning 6 months old. He is turning heads with 1 Reserve Champion, 2 Blues, 3 Reds, 2 Whites, and 2 Yellow. All of the judges commented on his impressive staple length, fineness, density, and uniformity. The only thing holding him back was his size (the youngest in the class at all shows). He placed higher in a walking fleece competition than the first place winner in his class proving his fleece is superior.

Wade Gease, AOBA Judge, commented positively on all the above judge's comments and added, "He will be exciting to watch as he matures!" and "Deserving of his ribbons. You should see more as he matures."

Jack is proving his ability to improve fineness and consistency in his offspring. We expect a color similar to the dam with Jack's fineness and consistency exhibited in their fleeces. Jack's own fleece is still a grade 2 fleece at 4 years old and several cria on the ground!
