Sire of our 8x champion Special K!
The judges' comments make us exceptionally proud of the product of work. Brought to our farm by luck from the notable breeding program of Fossil Ridge Alpacas as they were closing their farm, Special K was a bit on the small side with a lot of growing left to do, but with fiber that even then showed its fantastic potential. We are so fortunate to have the opportunity to have K that we could not believe our luck in being able to also add her sire, Rumaki, to our program. Long fans of Rumaki, we are thrilled.
Rumaki has had other great offspring that have gone on to their careers at other farms. One such notable is Fossil Ridge Rumaki's Gold Schlager whose 2012 (2-yr-old) fiber micron statistics look great: AFD 17.1, SD 4.3, CV 25.1%, SF 17.2, CF 98.8%, and Mean Staple Length 77.4mm.
Rumaki adds to his long list of top finishes by winning the Reserve Color Championship and the blue ribbon in the Light Fawn/Beige Adult Male class at the 2006 MOPACA halter show. Judge Jude Anderson stated that Rumaki “has excellent confirmation, with a broad chest and strong bone and he has a fleece to match. I placed this male over the other males in this class for his fineness”. Rumaki was awarded the 2006 MOPCA Reserve Color Championship in the ultra-tough competition of this level 4 show, winning over some of the very best light fawn and beige alpacas in the industry today. Judge Anderson stated that it was a true compliment for this two-year-old male to win the Reserve Color Championship over so many excellent yearling light fawn-beige male alpacas.
Rumaki is a son of the well know Hall of Fame Herdsire, Peruvian Royal Fawn. Co-owned by Double”O”Good Alpacas and Maple Brook Alpacas. His awesome genetics do not end there; his Dam Peruvian Tanya is also dam to Peruvian Lancaster. Lancaster, co-owned by AlpacaStock, Aspenwood Alpacas, and Chatham Alpacas, is a 6X color champion including the 2003 AOBA Nationals - Fawn Reserve Color Champion.
Rumaki has passed unexpectedly due to illness after a cold snap. Truly a loss as we were not even able to use him yet. K and her offspring mean that much more as the female he had breed had slipped her pregnancy and we have no further siblings.
