Grafini herself had a stunning fleece as a youngster and was in the Silverstream show team. Sadly she has never placed as she has an undershoot jaw. This has never affected her health. She has never passed this trait on to any of her progeny and we have never seen any other progeny from her Sire or Dam with this trait.
Grafini’s sire, Silverstream Czar is the only alpaca in NZ to win Champion Animal of Show at the NZ Royal. A half share in Czar was sold to England for NZD$60,000. He is now one of the most recognized working males in Europe.
Grafini comes from a highly fertile line in our herd. Her mother has given us 12 cria and is still going strong. Grafini has never had any health issues and maintains a healthy body score throughout the year.
Grafini does come from quite strong white lines and four of her five progeny have been solid white.
