Cascabel is the offspring of the famous black herdsire Fine Threads Jax and dark brown dam, Bouquet Garni Jax. A legend in the suri alpaca world, Fine Threads Jax out of the famous Alpaca Jack's breeding program was one of the top producing true black herdsires in the country. Bouquet Garni Jax was also a renowned breeding female (from Peruvian Juan), who won first place in the 2004 Futurity and other shows across the country.

Cascabel's famous color bloodlines have delivered in this female; she has produced high quality color offspring with fine, dense, lusterous fiber and strong frames.

In 2017, Cascabel was classified in the Suri herd classifications score system (SHIP) with top scores. Her conformation scores were all 5s (in a scale of 1-5 with 5 being the best). She scored 5s in the fleece categories for fineness and uniformity of color. For overall fleece phenotype, she scored a 4 out of 5 and she scored 3.5s for uniformity of micron, density and lock structure.

Dr. Norm Evans conducted a skin biopsy analysis on Cascabel in 2017 as a 10 year old female. Her density measures 49.5 follicles SQMM and her S/P ratio is 9.9 to 1. She shows level 4 of 4 gland presence and her secondary/primary fiber spread is 11.5 microns as her secondary fibers averaged 19.1 microns and her primary fibers averaged 30.6 microns. Her AFD calculates as 20.26 microns. Dr. Evan commented: "The fineness of Cascabel's fibers at her age shows strong genetics. This 10 year old female shows fiber stats ahead of her time and is a definite keeper".

Her fleece is very fine and soft, and her lock style and classic suri head make her a standout in the herd. She is an attentive, gentle mother with lots of milk for her cria.

Cascabel's black genetics really shine through. This is one of the reasons we chose to add Cascabel to our foundation herd and we are very happy with that decision.

In 2016, Cascabel had a gorgeous true black male cria, Big Timber's Khaya, out of GLR Nico. This male has dense, fine jet black fleece with beautiful luster. Khaya's fleece won Reserve Champion at the 2017 AOA National Fleece Show and he placed first in halter at the 2018 California Classic.

In May 2018, Cascabel had a stunningly gorgeous fawn cria sired by Midas' Black Ice. This little female is covered with fleece from nose to toes. We are excited to see her grow up for the 2019 show string.
