Colour Solid Lt Fawn
Bloodlines NWA Ltd Ruffo, Purrumbete El Dorado & Purrumbete Ledgers Dream.
Silverhill Victor is a solid light fawn male. He was sired by top accoyo male NWA Ltd Ruffo (now deceased), who was the number one pick at the 1994 Peruvian Elite Sale and was purchased by Haldane to be taken into the USA, and subsequently on to Australia. Victor is one of only three Ruffo sons currently working in NZ. Through his dam, Victor has the genetics from two of the six venerable ancestors of the Australian herd, Purrumbete El Dorado and Purrumbete Ledgers Dream.
Victor has a lovely soft, silky handling fleece with great lustre and great uniformity. His fleece is beautifully crimped in well-aligned staples. He has good density and this is being passed on to his progeny. We feel Victor would be a good choice to put over your coloured girls or any white girls that lack density. He also has thrown predominantly greys when put over grey females.
Victor did well in the show ring, consistently winning ribbons in both the breed and fleece classes. His first cria hit the ground in March 2008 and he now has 12 cria on the ground with more expected in 2011. With the exception of one cria, all cria from coloured dams are coloured themselves ranging from medium fawn, through brown to bay black (registered as dark brown but judged as black in the Warkworth Show in which she gained 1st place). He has also thrown a lovely medium grey male cria out of a grey dam which is already displaying a lovely crimpy fleece. Fleece stats from eight of his progeny are all under 19 micron putting them in the Ultrafine range. His black girl 2nd fleece at 20 months is still under 19 micron. And his latest rose grey boy, Silverhill Valiant, was only 15.4 micron with SD of 3.4 when shorn at age of 9 months in Oct 2012
