Tikanui, sired by the one and only Pucara Kahuna, has simply stunning fiber - white, lustrous, dense, with outstanding lock structure. And fine! At first shearing...20.9 micron!! Tikanui exemplifies the Suri phenotype. Indeed, Tikanui was even bestowed the special "best head" award by Don Julio Barreda's daughter Elena at the 2012 Futurity Show! He went on to win Reserve Color Champion at the 2012 Futurity. And, at over two years of age and 10 months of fleece growth since shearing, Tikanui won Color Champion at The 2013 Futurity, competing against other first rate, full-fleeced whites. His progeny have represented him in Get of Sire competitions and consistently strong representatives of their sire. Tikanui is consistently in the top 1% of EPDs. He was classified during out 2017 SHIP classification and received top scores for conformation traits, and amazingly high scores for all fleece characteristics. Not only is Tikanui spectacular to look at, he is a gentle guy, always easy to work with and a joy to be around! His progeny are doing fabulous things in the show ring and with their own offspring. Tikanui was the 2015 and 2017 Futurity Light Herdsire of the Year, and is the 2018 Herdsire of the Year. Tikanui's Zen of Harmony won Judge's Choice at the 2017 MOPACA show and at the 2017 Futurity and his daughter Venus won Supreme Light Championship at the 2018 National Show. Many championship offspring with super fleece statistics. Wow!
Torbei was one of Bluff Breeze's top picks for "producer of the decade"! Her offspring include Tardy for the Party, an exceptional Tikanui daughter; and Torpedo, who started producing outstanding cria in 2017. Torbei passes her fantastic fleece characteristics on to her offspring. Torbei is in the top 1% of EPDs for standard deviation. Wow!
Tardy for the Party is all you could ask for in a female Suri. She is well-grown, big-boned, and carries fantastic fleece characteristics from head to toe. What else would you expect from Pucara Puresuri Tikanui and BBFAI Torbeo breeding? Her cria are strong, healthy, and up and nursing within an hour. She has proven to pass on her fleece qualities even with different herdsires. Tardy's 2021 EPDs rank her in the top 1% for 3 categories SDAFD, Fleece Weight, and MSL. Her Spin Fineness and %>30 are ranked in the 10% just missing the cut-off for the top 5%. Her cria’s EPDs are even better than hers. She just keeps producing amazing cria and has a lovely personality to complete the package. She is a keeper!
