Description
Orlando is a superb mid-brown male with correct conformation and attractive head.
He has a very dense and soft handling fleece with a well defined high frequency crimp.

Orlando's father is the multi-championship winning black stud: Virococha Prophecy of Anzac. His mother, Snowshill Perdita, is a blue black female by the well known Purston Peruvian Kim (D-Brown) out of Purston Lacewing (a show winning grey).

Orlando started working in 2011 and is well worth considering for anyone wishing to breed browns or for generally adding colour to their herd. He has produced many stunning cria. All are short faced, very correctly conformed, big boned and with good solid coloured fleeces - browns, fawns, lights and blacks. A number of his off-spring are being highly placed in both halter and fleece shows. One of his sons, Snowshill Maserati, was champion brown male at the 2014 HoE Spring Fiesta and at the 2014 Royal Three Counties Show. Another son, Snowshill Rembrandt, was placed 1st in the junior male brown class at the 2014 Alpaca Showtime Event and a daughter, Snowshill Nakita was reserve champion light female at the 2014 Romsey Show. Maserati and Rembrandt were respectively Champion and Reserve Champion brown males at the 2015 Spring Fiesta. Bugatti and Virginia are other Championship winning off-spring.
Orlando is one of those males who often produces off-spring that have a better fleece than his or that of the dam. In part, this could be due to genes inherited from his father, who retained a fineness below 19 microns up to at least his 7th fleece.
