Description
If you are looking for an unrivalled combination of fleece and frame in your advanced breeding programme then Bolero is a must.
Bolero, a light fawn male, is the complete package -a very proud male with a strong, upright stance and a fleece that carries fineness, an excellent uniformity of micron, density and lustre and is holding these characteristics well with a fine, 23 micron fleece at 8 years of age.
These traits are coming through in his progeny, both in New Zealand and the UK. For example, as an Intermediate, Dark Sky Kahlua (one of his 2021 progeny) was awarded Champion White Female at the National Show, Heart of England, South of England, Somerset and Midlands shows and Champion White Fleece at the Cornwall Fleece Show.

Bolero was awarded Supreme at the Alpaca Association of New Zealand (AANZ) National Show in 2016.
You only have to look at his pedigree to understand why he is such a class act - a rare combination of Accoyo, Surilana and Surico.
His Sire, Surico Onedin was awarded Supreme in all 7 NZ shows entered, including the Nationals in 2010. He has many award winning progeny - in addition to Bolero, a further 2 have won Supreme at the Nationals. He is most famous for his extreme density.
Onedin's Sire, Surilana Parsifal, needs no introduction. Bred by Don Julio Barreda at Accoyo, he is the most influential suri male in New Zealand having sired 10% of the national herd - his progeny have been awarded over 57 Supremes and in excess of 200 broad ribbons. He is strong boned and compact with excellent conformation and all his cria, without exception, produced exquisite fleeces with fine pencilled, independent locks and the trademark nose-to-toe coverage for which Accoyo bloodlines are famous.
Bolero's Dam, Surico Ballerina is also a National Supreme winner with 2 progeny winning the same accolade.
