Kemen is a gorgeous dark, dark brown/maroon with black points and plenty of luster. His lock structure is uniform and he has a beautiful suri head. He has excellent coverage and superior density, adding up to an all around nice male. He also has one of the sweetest personalities on the farm, and is polite even when jockeying for carrot treats. Kemen's sire is the incomparable Sirius Black, and his dam is a MacGyver granddaughter who has produced a number of show winning cria. Kemen is 13/16 Peruvian, 1/4 Bolivian and 1/8 Chilean.

When you see his biopsy data, you'll understand why Kemen has done so well in halter and spinoff classes - 57.8 follicles/mm, and a 10.7 to 1 secondary to primary ratio. Alpaca Consulting commented on the results that this is "An excellent set of numbers for a colored Suri male! High density supported by an above average S:P ratio and very uniform secondary fiber population are all sought after fleece traits for any alpaca color but to find them in a dark color is especially exciting."

Kemen's cria have all taken after their father with superior fleece characteristics. He has produced brown and black for us, and we are excited that several females have reached breeding age. Time to see what the next generation can do!
