Titan is an exquisite Zagato male juvie that's won championships in three of his first four shows (blue ribbon in the first one), including 3x RC at '19 CAC, AOA Nationals and HOV...and he's done it in extremely stiff competition -- CCNF, Amber Autumn, Snowmass, you name it, they were there. All we can say is that this guy carries himself like he knows he's gonna be great! He's got the "it" factor, and Oh, my! he's an extremely nice little fellow. Tipping the scales right around 80 pounds as a 6 month old, and his fleece is amazing! incredible handle, density, fineness - and we can say that he's improving with age already!
At the VAOBA show, one of the judges walked up to his pen and inquired if he was as nice on the inside as he appeared to be on the outside!...well, he's pretty darn nice and getting nicer all the time! UPDATE: So, Titan received his first banner at his 2nd show--Carolina Alpaca Celebration---apparently our thought that he's getting better with age is proving to be true. UPDATE 2: You already read above that he just won his second banner at his 3rd show--AOA National Show. He just keeps getting better!
His dam, Fortunato's Ali-Accoyo Raina, has made some very nice crias, and Titan's no exception. Titan's sire is Sunset Hills Zagato, and Zagato is stamping his cria out consistently one after the other....He's one of the last Zephyrus male offspring. He is highly decorated in the show ring winning multiple championships and two Judge's Choice awards. His fleece is soft, dense and spectacular with high frequency, high amplitude crimp structure. His conformation, stellar! With about a dozen offspring on the ground, all have been show worthy, bannering and ribboning in the show rings.
Looking at Titan this early, it appears he'll follow strongly in his herdsire's footsteps, and he definitely carries the amazing fleece length and density of his dam. We're expecting great things from this guy!
