Big Timber Locke's Kristoff's genetics are power packed on both sides. His sire is the champion Cloudypass' Accoyo Locke. Locke's multiple successes in the show ring include the 2005 Champion at the competitive GWAS show and other numerous show banners. Locke passed his great fiber and conformation characteristics on to his progeny, with his offspring taking 16 first place banners. The 2015 EPD's placed Locke in the top 1% of EPDs for fineness with a rank of 5 out of 5898 suri males!! He continued in the top 1% EPDS thru 2019.
Kristoff's dam, Armani's Aurora has passed through her fabulous genetics as well. Leading this genetic package is the multi-champion DDF Accoyo Armani, PPeruvian Miquel, DDF Peruvian Macgyver and Acero Marka's Calamity Jane. Armani's Aurora has outstanding EPD rankings, in the top 2% for fineness and top 1% for fibers>30 micron. She has also demonstrated the ability to retain her fineness and SD as she ages.
Kristoff represents the best in suri genetics and exhibits a high degree of density, luster, fineness, and uniformity. His fleece took Reserve Champion at the 2015 AOA National Fleece Show and first place out of ten at the 2015 Suri Network All Suri Fleece Show. No wonder when his histogram shows an amazing 14.4 micron for AFD.
His rankings in the 2022 EPDs confirms the retention of his genetic prepotence:
AFD-- Top 2%
Fibers<30-- Top 2%
Kristoff's SHIPS (Suri Herd Improvement Program) evaluation scores were a perfect 5 in all conformation categories. For fleece characteristics he scored a perfect 5 for luster, handle and uniformity of color, and a 4.5 for lock structure. He scored 4's in the areas of fineness, density and fleece phenotype and a 3.5 for uniformity of micron.
Dr. Norm Evans performed a skin biopsy on Kristoff in 2017 with the following results:
“Big Timber Locke’s Kristoff was biopsied as a 35 month old light fawn Suri male. His 15X scan shows fiber clusters rather uniform in size, shape and placement within his connective tissue. His density measured 64.5 follicles SQ MM of skin. His average S/P ratio based is 13.4 to 1. He grades level 4 of 4 gland presence and near 40% of his secondary fibers show a degree of medullation. 100 secondary fibers averaged 17.9 microns while 50 primary fibers averaged 29.7 microns for a spread of 11.8 microns. Kristoff’s AFD on July 8, 2017 at 35 months of age figures 18.77 micron.
Kristoff's offspring are stunning....extreme luster and fineness in a very dense organized lock structure. We were pleased that his first offspring won him a third place Get of Sire award at the very competitive 2020 Suri Network Fleece Show.
The only reason we are offering Kristoff for sale is he is underutilized on our farm. We will consider half interest to the right partner!
