Solid White Suri
The first of our elite, premium white suri males, Parsifal, bred by Don Julio Barreda at Accoyo has made his mark in New Zealand by producing some truly remarkable off-spring. Parsifal is a strong boned compact male with excellent conformation.
His cria to date, all suri, have without exception produced exquisite fleeces, fine pencilled, independent locks with the trademark nose-to-toe coverage for which Accoyo bloodlines are world famous. The consistent quality of progeny by Parsifal have enjoyed unprecedented success in the National and North Is show ring.
With 57 Supremes and 200 broad ribbons awarded to his progeny, his highlight has to be the 9 broad ribbons gained at the 2009 National Show, out of the 16 awarded in the breed section and another 3 in the fleece section.
Using this extraordinary stud male is a must for your suri herd. Contact us today for a booking.
Jointly owned by SuriSelect.
Stud Fee: $1,500 + gst. Parsifal died in 2015 while his son Surico Burton was winning the 2015 National Show at Mystery Creek, Hamilton.
Surilana Parsifal is the most consistent of all of our sires. His progeny consistently exhibit excellent suri traits, lustre, handle, fineness, density and uniformity of micron. They have won 57 Supremes or Show Champions and 200 broad ribbons.
Birthday Honours for Parsifal
His imposing presence is hard to ignore, Parsifal stands on the hill at Surico above Lake Rotorua surveying his herd, watching any action in the vicinity of the yards. Today Parsifal will be 15 years old. His full name is Surilana Parsifal. Born at Accoyo in Peru, he was bred by Don Julio Barreda who tagged Parsifal into his named herd. After a brief stay in Australia, Parsifal immigrated to NZ 10 years ago in 2004.
Parsifal revealed his outstanding qualities early in his career. Earning a good reputation for reliably passing on his desirable traits and being readily accessible through mobile mating, he was a popular choice and valuable asset to NZ’s fledgling suri industry. His genes are dotted throughout the NZ suri herd. With 237 registered cria he has to be the most influential suri male in NZ having sired 10% of the national herd. We believe he has more progeny than any other suri male in Australasia.
At Surico we experienced consistent improvement over the years and with access to another 3 Accoyo males, we were able to produce a genetically diverse suri herd. More recently Parsifal has covered our improved females where he still adds his magic continuing to develop the quality in our herd. Of our 2013 cria the best come from Parsifal, with highly developed fleeces and superb conformation. His longevity of consistently producing top quality suri has been a major factor in our success at Surico.
Parsifal is a strong healthy male and wonderfully well behaved, he is our favoured male for spitoffs, dismissing any pregnant female with a disdainful sniff and he is always right. These days he has his own paddock but still knows he is king, he wants to kill any other male that comes near. Young males cringe past his paddock submissively showing their respect for his status.
His progeny have an outstanding show record. Of the 10 AANZ National Shows, Parsifal was the sire of 3 Suri Supreme Champions, Surico Yulia 2005, Surico Onedin 2010 and Surico Demoiselle2013 and grandsire of another 2, Surico Tangier 2011 and Surico Walkinshaw 2012. Spanning 10 years, from 2003 when Surico Monet his first offspring [who came in utero from Australia], won the top award at Hawkes Bay, to the recent honour of Surico Demoiselle winning the 2013 National Supreme Suri Championship, progeny have been awarded over 50 supreme and show champions and in excess of 200 broad ribbons.
In his short stay in Australia he sired only 2 females, one is Pinjarra SuzieQ who won the Victorian Suri of the Year a few years ago and went on to produce the 2012 Australian National Supreme Suri [Surilana Surpass]and the Junior Male Champion Suri [Bumble Hill Ambleside Parsifal] at the 2013 Australian National.
His importance to the NZ suri herd was reinforced on a visit by Mike Safely in 2004 who asked who the magnificent male was on the hill and was then introduced to the 4 Accoyo males we had grazing on our farm. He was very surprised to find they all wore named aluminum tags from Barredas elite herd. He impressed on us the value of these special males that had taken a lifetime of breeding to achieve.
We acknowledge and thank those that had the foresight and efforts to select and secure Parsifal a magnificent male along with the superior group of males that were imported in the shipment, Alan Hamilton, Jill Short , Ron Condon and Chris Leach. We thank Don Julio for breeding such a great male.
At Surico we feel fortunate to have found such an impressive male, to us, he is a star.
