Ripple Effect was not much of a surprise really. What would you expect when you pair a Futurity Champion Male with a Legacy Gold Daughter? We expected a knock out with extreme longevity of quality and that is exactly what we got. This is very, very close to the exact same genetic crossings that created TKO’s King of the Ladies and we all know what damage he has done to the show ring! Even today at 4 years old Ripple Effect looks as good if not better than he looked at 1 year old. Virtually...

4x Champ, Futurity Champion

AML El Duro's Dolce Latte

Huacaya, Female, Proven, Dark Rose Grey, Full Peruvian
ARI# 30863286 | DOB: 7/23/2007
This beautiful female is a prime example of what her sire, AML Legacy’s El Duro could create...Exquisite fleece - soft, high frequency, elite style crimp. El Duro "Pedro" passed in 2009, leaving a void in the genetic pool of truly elite herdsires. His offspring are left to carry on his lineage, and we believe Dolce is among the best. She is dense, dense, dense and has coverage down to her toes. Dolce’s Fleece Statistics from 3/12/2008 were: 16.4, 3.5, 21.3, 0.4. At four years old (2011) her AFD...

Bidding Info


Flash comes from Champion stock and has the Elite fiber traits to show for it! Rose Grey dam AML El Duro's Dolce Latte is a Futurity Champion with 3 additional Reserve Championships including the World Fleece Show, and his Sire, Hilltop's Ripple Effect is a 5x banner winner. He is the grandson of Futurity Champion CCNF Supercalifragilistic... on his sire's side, and Legacy son El Duro on his Dam's side.
Flash's first fleece was shorn VERY late in 2015 due to our move, so his staple was much shorter than typical or expected as the spring 2016 show season began. The judges commented on his fiber being shorter than expected, but in spite of this, he placed respectably as a juvie at NAAS and the MAPACA Jubilee. We saw amazing regrowth as his yearling fleece came in, with exceptional uniformity, tight architecture and extreme fineness so we were not surprised to see him earn a banner with his full growth yearling fleece in the Fall. He took the Best Bred and Owned Banner at the 2016 Showtacular/NEAOBA with judges Amanda Vandenbosch and Jude Andersen presiding. His competition was from a group of well-respected large breeding programs. The comments were excellent.... excellent fleece fineness, uniformity, density, and overall conformation. His amazingly beautiful conformation, head, and dense, soft fleece make him the total package.
Flash has settled his first female and is ready to start his breeding career. His introductory stud fee for a drive-by is a great opportunity! Please contact us to inquire about breedings or purchase!
