Male Suri

We are very careful about selecting males to be used for breeding and only those exhibiting outstanding qualities and pedigree are chosen. We only offer males that we would use in our own breeding program. These males all possess the necessary breeding and phenotypical traits needed to develop a quality suri breeding program.

Walkinshaw Sons


Surico Walkinshaw...Now no longer with us, but his boys provide some stunning prospects; Surico Trooper [born 2020] made his mark in the 2022 show cicuit as an adult, along with Surico TeRehutai [born 2021] as an intermediate. Surico Torpedo [born 2022] also one to watch.

Surico Pizazz

Surico Pizazz has an illustrious show record . He comes from a family exhibiting consistent quality traits of fineness density and uniformity of micron. His dam Surico Rosse, also a notable show ring winner. A full sibling  Surico Pascale a National Supreme 2018, as was his sire Surico Tangier 2011.


Young Guns

Surico Ravel and Surico Victory both sired by Surico Bolero are two up and coming young males showing tremendous promise. Fantastic fleece stats and amazing pedigree. We expect cria from Ravel in 2023.

Surico Pirouette is the dam of Ravel and has some of the best Surico genetics. Surico Anna Pavlova is the dam of Victory, she was sold to Germany in 2021 , so her genetics are no longer available in NZ. Victory will be ready to work 2023.

His pedigree is special too, his dam is Surico Venus and sire is Surilana Mr B ET both exhibiting density as their standout strength.



Surico Bazille


Surico Bazille is well built male with an imposing presence. This combination of genetics has been successfully repeated over the years. Surico Dali has the same parents, Alinghi and Cezanne, both exhibit desired traits, particuarly micron uniformity and fineness for continued suri breeding.

Selecting a suri stud male by trait

The suri traits we concentrate on are fineness, uniformity of micron, density, and lustre, so it is these strengths we look for in our stud males. You may also be after a male for breeding colour while not compromising quality.


Fineness can and should be measured for each suri in your herd to ensure you can analyse how individual suri are performing along with the average of your herd. We have selected males in this catagory that have maintained a good average micron, come from family lines that produce fine micron or consistently produce fine micron offspring.

Uniformity of micron

Uniformity of micron is probably the most important trait for breeding fibre producing alpaca.


Density is important to breeders as the more fleece grown per alpaca the greater the return.


The high natural lustre of suri makes it unique amongst natural fibres giving it a real point of difference. This makes it a very important trait to select when breeding. All males selected for breeding at Surico must have exceptional lustre.


As suri are very rare animals breeding quality suri is a difficult business, breeding quality in colour is even harder. At Surico we have selecetd males that have coloured fleeces and/or coloured blackgrounds but also display the quality traits required for improvement in a coloured breeding program.

Lock Structure

Locking is a much talked about trait in suri, but we feel it is often misunderstood. At Surico we have not bred for lock structure at all but have achieved suri with naturally independant flat locks by concentrating on improving the uniformity of micron and increasing the density, so we believe these features have a strong link.


All the males offered here have excellent conformation as all breeding males should. Solid bone and strength [especially in back quarters] we view as very important when choosing a herdsire.


All animals sold as breeding stock are sold with an independent veterinary check for health and soundness. All breeding stock males and females are sold with a fertility guarantee and pregnant females with promise of a live birth or free return service, within NZ. Individual arrangements can be made for overseas clients.
