Patagonia Celtic Rising Sun (SMF) ET proudly owned by Shamarra Alpacas in NZ

Rising Sun has continued his superior show winning performance on his third fleece. He has now won three national 1st placings in the 2006, 2007 and 2008 AAA National Shows as well as winning Adult Champion Male at the 2008 Melbourne Royal show, Senior Champion male at the 2009 Sydney Royal Show and Reserve Senior Champion Male at the 2009 Melbourne Royal Show. Rising Sun is an ultra-fine male. This is a significant genetic achievement as our property has improved pastures and all our animals are well grown out for age.

1st Fleece 2006 15.5, 3.8 SD, 24.9% CV, SF 15.6
2nd Fleece 2007 17.4, 3.2 SD, 18.5% CV, SF 16.6
3rd Fleece 2008 18.1, 3.5 SD, 19.2% CV, SF 17.4
4th Fleece 2009 17.2, 3.3 SD, 19.4% CV, SF 16.5
6th Fleece 19.9, 4.1 SD (NZ)

Rising Sun has extreme crimp definition (high amplitude crimp which adds length, softness and high brightness to the fleece). He is out of our top donor female Patagonia Sunline and by our seven time supreme champion sire Patagonia Celtic Triumph.
