Thank you Russ and Brenda Wyler of Crossed Arrows Alpacas located in Velma, Oklahoma for purchasing 1/2 interest in Alpaca Palace's Houdini! We are excited about our new partnership! Houdini will be settling females in Oklahoma leaving PA in October returning in April to Butler, PA.

WHOA! Our Bred and Born Treasure, Alpaca Place Houdini's 1/2 interest being offered! What an opportunity to get in on THE PREPOTENT Sire that throws COLOR and gets all the credit for Alpaca Palace's existance!!! What else were we to do with an incredible male like this? He has produced multiple Champions and numerous ribbon winners.

His offspring are cookie cutter consistent. He passes on his extreme brightness, fineness, high frequency character, consistency throughout the fleece and his Extreme DENSITY and BRIGHTNESS. Houdini produces color about 70% of the time when bred to color. Add that to the fact that Houdini also greatly improves conformation which gives the advantage of breeding to an average quality female his ability to leap generations in quality of his offspring. His crias have beautiful heads, square frames, straight legs and great width of chest and rump. When comparing his offspring's fleeces, they are very easy to identify because of their brightness, fineness, consistent character and style. His crias are very vibrant and quick to stand and nurse at birth. They are smart and easy to train. His daughters are GREAT moms, easy birthers with lots of milk and wonderful mothering instincts. As breeders, this is what we all wish for in breeding seed stock foundation females and in the care of their young and their young's ability to thrive.

Let's show some data:

Houdini's skin biopsy results, prepared by C. Norman Evans, DVM, at 4.5 years of age are as follows:

"His 15x scan shows fiber clusters mostly uniform in shape and placement but irregular in size. Houdini's true density is 82.93 follicles SQ MM of skin while 25 fiber clusters show an average S/P of 10.2 to 1. He shows level 3 of 4 glands which should relate to fiber brightness and appears to be a genetic trait passed from the male to their offspring. Less that 10% of Houdini's secondary fibers show medullation which should relate to excellent handle. 100 secondary fibers average 21.3 microns while 50 primary fivers average only 26.1 microns for a variation of only 4.8 microns. Houdini's fiber stats place him in the top 1% of huacaya males that I have tested."

Proudly Co-ownded with Crossed Arrows Alpacas
