Kahuna's Josef and Sweet 16 produced a stunning female, Sweet Mimosa. We love the results of this genetic pairing. Her sire, Josef is an 12X Champion with top 1% EPDs. Mimosa's dam, Sweet 16 has incredible retained fineness and uniformity also expressing in top 1% EPDs as a mature prepotent stud female.
Mimosa's fiber is very fine and soft. Both her sire, Josef, and dam, Sweet 16, have extreme retained fineness that is passed through to Mimosa. These quality genetics have also passed through a beautiful high level of luster to Mimosa as well.
Mimosa's half-sister, Malika, through her dam, Sweet 16, share the same Kahuna genetics. Malika has incredible density at 69 follicles and royal baby fineness at 20 micron as a three year old. We sold Malika in 2021 to a top US Suri breeder.
Mimosa is ranked highly in the 2022 EPDs which demonstrates her prepotence as a high-quality stud female:
SD: Top 5%
Fibers<30: Top 5%
Sweet Mimosa was biopsied as a 43-month-old in 2021. Her density measures 44 follicles SQMM with an average S/P ratio of 11.2 to 1. Her secondary fibers averaged 20.4 microns while her primary fibers averaged 28.1 microns for an average S/P spread of only 7.7 microns. Her AFD is 21.08 microns. Although, her density is average, Mimosa exhibits extremely fine and uniform fleece with beautiful lock structure.
Mimosa is the complete package, outstanding fleece and conformation traits. She is also an excellent mother with easy birthing, lots of milk and love for her cria.
She gave birth in August 2020 to a gorgeous female sired by HFS Jeremiah. This stunning girl, Sweet Teah, is our first cross between Josef and Jeremiah and we couldn't be happier with the outcome.
After repeating this breeding, Mimosa had a stunning, white male in August 2021. This male, Jesse, is a strong framed, beautifully fleeced future herdsire. We now co own this male with Sandollar Alpacas.
In late August 2022, Mimosa had another gorgeous white male, Riproar, who is a 4X champion!
We love the results of the Jeremiah/Sweet Mimosa crossings and will continue to build on its success!
