Second Fleece and Its Winnings
Beck Brow Hit For Six is a multi-championship winning brown male who is available for outside stud services. He is a son of Gilt Edge Samurai of Beck Brow, an Australian import who has siren many championship winning cria and continues to be a highly influential herdsire at Beck Brow Alpaca. Hit For Six shares the same elite dam, Bozedown Campari, with his highly successful half-brothers Beck Brow On The Money and Beck Brow Back Of The Net. Hit For Six is producing some great cria and has been a great asset to our breeding programme.
The fleece on this male is really exciting! He is sporting a stylish and fine, deep chocolate brown fleece with a phenomenal amount of density. As he is so dense, his fibres are really well aligned and create well organized, tightly packed, pencil-width staples all across his blanket and beyond. The curvature on his fleece has a very deep amplitude. As you can see in his photos, he has very little guard hair and carries a good fleece length on his neck.
Conformationally, Hit For Six does not disappoint either. He is a correctly conformed, compact male who makes an impact with his lovely, true to type head, correct bite, great substance of bone, and excellent coverage on his extremities. He has a calm and relaxed disposition, making him a pleasure to work with. These are all strong genetic traits that he passes on to his cria as they all clearly bear his stamp. His cria are strong at birth, are quick to stand and feed, and have his laid-back disposition.
Genetically, Hit For Six has been colour tested by Neogen as being EE/aa in colour. This means that, despite being brown, he is genetically very very dark. He is incapable of producing fawn colour when being bred to black alpacas, and he is incapable of producing a white from any colour. He will always darken or match the dam’s colour.
Overall, Hit For Six has been, and will continue to be, a real asset to our breeding programme. He has proven himself a very useful male in improving overall quality, density, and the depth of colour that we have been looking for in our coloured, black, and grey breeding programmes.
We look forward to bringing his cria to the show ring in 2023!
