Details
East Coast bloodlines in the Pacific Northwest, Richie has set himself apart as an incredible non-fading true black herdsire. His cria have not disappointed with beautiful structure and fiber that is absolutely stunning, ranging from Silver grey to True Black! We have repeated several breeding due to the sensational nature of his cria!!

Richie has perfect conformation and a great head style and shiny soft non-fading true black fiber showing GREAT definition to his crimp at the skin level. Coverage? from the nose to the toes.

Richie is as if a sponge made from rabbit fur...soft, yet thick, and backed up by his histograms. Richie's fiber is also consistent from front to back, as evidenced in two location histograms done in 2011. And if that's not good enough, his fiber has only gotten better!! 2015 Histograms show a reduction in his MFD to 21.4! Look at his 2015 histograms for all the improvements!! He does not have a white fiber anywhere; no signs of anything but pure black lusciousness.

Vintage Richie Rich ("Richie") is a result of the Vintage Alpacas well-refined breeding program, producing show quality offspring. Richie Rich; his name fits his fiber...royal baby softness like never before felt in black! He is the son of Sterling Silver, a gorgeous grey from Vintage Alpacas. Sterling is still winning ribbons at 5 years old! Richie gets his wonderful soft fiber from his sire’s Alianza and Accoyo lineage, coming from PPPeruvian Cordero (Accoyo) and PPPeruvian Prosperity (Alianza).

His dam, SA Silver Symphony, a medium silver grey from Vintage Alpacas, is a beautiful daughter of 5Peruvian Silverado (Sollocata import). With the exception of Richie, Silver has only had grey crias. She has a terrific topknot, and spiral curls down the backs of her legs.
