We are please to announce out co-ownership of High Plains Tornado's Torrific with Mario and Bill of Rancho Inca Alpacas.

High Plains Tornado's Torrific is an exceptional male imported from one of the best Canadian breeders: High Plains Alpacas.

This male has outstanding character, excellent organization and blinding brightness. he has excellent conformation and superb phenotype.

Torrific's sire, Prairiefire's Hurricane's Tornado, had a record breaking show career followed by his record breaking offspring, winning undefeated Supreme Championships & Supreme Championship fleece awards, which before broken, his offspring went on a 5-year consecutive Supreme run in both male & female. Tornado is a male who holds the title of the most Canadian Futurity Supreme Championships won, at a grand total of seven! He is even said to be the highest awarded alpaca in Canadian history! But those awards aren't by fault. His first year histogram reveals a 13.3 micron fleece with a curve of 69.5 and a 9th year test of 18.4 microns and curve of 49.8! To boot, his offspring have reached extremely fine micron number like 12.5mm with standard deviation numbers of 2.5 and curvatures as high as 83.5 - now that is impressive stats for a production male!

Torrific's 2018 skin biopsy donce by Dr. Norm Evans showed well above average density for a large male. Many males with similar to higher density are smaller framed males.

Torrific's 15x scan shows numerous typical fiber clusters to be very uniform in shape and placement within his connective tissue which is a fiber trait likely passed from his dam. His true density based on his BCS measures 76 follicles SQ MM of skin. 25 typical fiber clusters measure an average S/P of 11.2 to 1. His S/P view shows 8 typical fiber clusters indicating level 4 of 4 gland presence which based on history seems to be a strongly passed male trait associated with bright healthy fiber. This S/P view also includes a triad fiber cluster seen with alpacas with greater density. His last scan measures the average size of his primary to secondary fibers from typical clusters. 100 typical secondary fibers averaged 17.3 microns while 50 typical primary fibers averaged only 21.4 microns. This results in an S/P spread of only 4.1 microns indicating great uniformity of micron size. As a 4 year old male this small spread may be his strongest genetic trait as this ratio seems to be strongly passed from males to their offspring. The average S/P spread that I measure in mature huacaya males is 9+ microns. His average fiber diameter based on my stats is 17.66 microns. Note on all his scans that virtually none of his secondary fibers show medullation as noted by the stained red medulla cells in the center of his fibers. Torrific shows Wow fiber stats. I appreciate the opportunity to measure a male of this caliber.
