Description
We were thrilled in 2018 to have the opportunity of a half share in a very promising male bred by Mary Jo Smith at Bozedown Alpacas; here is what she had to say about Tonto ....................
" Well, our hopes and dreams came true in this pairing of two legendary bloodlines. Tonto realised a major step in our breeding programme. With Tonto's first crias born in 2017, we have further proof of his stake in the future. (Tonto's Dam and Sire are two of my favourite alpacas and I fell in love with Tonto from a very young cria). He has near perfect conformation and his stature is such that your eyes are drawn to him in the field. He also has a wonderful nature! Tonto's fleece has excellent length and a shimmering brightness. Although we do not choose an alpaca solely based on fleece style, we really cannot ignore the fact that Tonto's fleece has a wonderfully aligned crimp style which is everywhere on him and this fact is indicative of his terrific density "

For Legacy Alpacas, Tonto has more than lived up to his early promise, passing on his near-perfect conformation and exceptional fleece characteristics to his progeny. Retaining fineness and consistency into his 7th fleece, with a lovely soft handle, and still packing the density, Tonto has lots more to give and we are excited to see his third crop of crias on the ground this spring.

Like other breeders, we have been saddened not to be able to showcase Tonto's progeny in the show ring but we are hoping that 2021 will be the year he comes into his own and we can demonstrate what this male is bringing to the National Herd!
