Surico Burton has to be sire of the month for Surico, with 3 wonderful daughters born lately. We are very pleased with his offspring from matings before he went to Australia. Two males were born earlier in the year Surico Ashby, a lovely dark fawn, out of our black female Surico Tinka and Surico Dalton out of one our best fleeced females Trinkett. The first female cria, Surico Fairlight is out of Surico Killarney, her first cria. The second is out of Surico Jade [dam of Onedin] and we have named her Palmyra. The third is Surico Cala and is Surico Ibiza’s 9th cria. They are all looking stunning.
The Onedin Line
With two progeny winning Supreme Suri at AANZ National Shows in consecutive years, Surico Onedin can now claim captain of the fleet. Son of our flag ship male Parsifal who died in 2015, Onedin has gone on to produce supreme progeny, displaying super density, uniformity of micron from stem to stern and superb lustre.
Surico Bolero navigated his way to the top in 2016 winning the coveted title after several Supreme Champion awards at regional shows.
It was not such plain sailing for Surico Chaos who entered his first show at the 2017 Alpaca Expo, NZ’s National Show. Previously he had only entered and won Supreme with his junior fleece at Rotorua in 2015.
All of the Onedin progeny at Surico have impressed, a trio of sisters out of Surico Courcheval, Fernie, Kazama and Niseko are truly beautiful females with dense, uniformly fine fleeces. All have won broad ribbons at shows around NZ. Kazama was Intermediate Female Champion Suri at the 2017 National Show and was pulled forward along with Chaos to select the final winner.
The other 3 female Onedin progeny at Surico all have superior fleece qualities, with Peone [dark fawn]and Tempest [light fawn] exhibiting colour. We are eager to see Viola’s first cria due in early 2018.
Waiting in the wings are 2 weanling boys, Burling [dark fawn] and Dublin [light fawn], we are keenly watching their development.
Here at Surico we are excited at the development of this lineage …… The Onedin Line
Planning for the Future
Planning for the future, we at Surico have selected these 4 males, to continue the improvement of suri fleece with discerning breeding..
Surico proudly presents a unique set of genetics resulting from years of careful planning and breeding. These genetics now consolidated and proven have their origins in Peru, from the famous Accoyo and Alianza alpaca farms.
All have been parent verified and all just certified. Check out these new boys who will complement their new owners and the Surico suri breeding programme.
Dam Surico Diva
Sire Surico Alinghi
One of the finest fleeces we have ever bred. Holding remarkable fineness and uniformity of micron, a feature characteristic of Alinghi’s progeny.
Supreme suri at Waikato 2016 , Lyn Dickson judge commented on his magnificent presence, density and fineness. Vivo was also won Supreme Champion Suri at Hawkes Bay in 2015. He has been awarded several championships as a junior and intermediate. His full brother Surico Nova won the coveted title of Supreme Suri Fleece at the 2013 International Fleece Show at Hamilton.
Vivo was recently sold to Germany and will be leaving us later this year.
Dam Surico Balllerina
Sire Surico Onedin
Reigning NZ National Supreme Champion Suri , Bolero comes from a supreme pedigree. Both parents are reliably breeding the uppermost quality suri. His sire, Onedin, is producing the densest fleeces in our herd, carrying on the hallmark characteristic of his sire Parsifal. Bolero’s dam, Ballerina continues to produce suri with all the desired suri traits at the highest degree.
In the showring, Bolero was awarded several Supreme awards and championships as a junior culminating with the 2016 National title as an intermediate. Both parents have been National Supreme Champions, Ballerina in 2007 and Onedin in 2010.
Dam Surico Cezanne
Sire Surico Alinghi
Dali is the product of a perennial mating that we can’t bring ourselves to change, his siblings include Surico Magritte a superb female. This male will be remaining here to enhance the genetics in future generations at Surico alongside Fairhaven Alpacas who have purchased a half share in Dali.
Dali has had a successful show career constantly winning broad ribbons, including at National level.
Dam Surico Magritte
Sire Surico Onedin
The sum of the best of our best, Chaos represents the pinnacle of our breeding to date. Super density and super fineness can only describe Chaos. He is one out of the box, it is our intention that he will play a major part in our future breeding programme.
His dam Magritte consistently produces the best, every year giving us another ‘Glowbug’ fondly dubbed by huacaya breeder, Lyn Skilling.
His sire, Onedin, is also producing striking progeny, already he has sired a National Supreme Champion [Surico Bolero]. Fleeces are luxurious, dense and fine with stunning lustre.
