Legato Grigio is the assimilation of the 2 most important lines that RR wanted to bring to their grey breeding program. He comes by his elite fleece not unexpectedly.

Dad is RR Gun's A'Blazin' who has now shown by both histograms, and follicle skin testing that he is consistantly producing fineness, density and uniformity and was a 15 time banner winner.

Mom, Snowmass Golden Dreams, has been one of their best producers. RR has amassed countless banners from her offspring, among whom is their pre=potent herdsire Snowmass Midnight Sun.

LG has demonstrated his prepotency repeatedly in his production. AS RR had hoped, he is able to transmit solid grey as a dominant, in many shades. His progeny, as tested by histograms and biopsies (to date) attest to his prepotency...take a minute to check the stats on his offspring. There is but one to date that is not still in the RR herd...they have retained them all.
His non grey production has championed in solid colors, fawn and black in particular.

His pattern appears to be a spotting, not tuxedo, pattern and they have used him on solid colors with excellent success.
RR has not bred him to tuxedo patterns. He has not produced any blue eyed whites.

The numbers don't lie:

2012 16.0/ 3.9/ 23/ CF 100%/ length 90mm
2013 18.3/ 4.1/ 23/ CF99%/ length 105mm
2014 17.3/ 3.85/ 22.24/ CF 100 length 90.0
2015: 19.3/ 4.3/ 22.3/ CF 97.3 length 90mm

Biopsy (Alpaca Consulting/ Ian Watt):
Density 64.6/mm2
S/P ratio 11.8:1
In-skin mean primary fiber diameter: 25.9 SD 2.8
In-skin mean secondary fibre diameter: 20.6 SD 2.8
Excellent density well supported by an above average S:P ratio and very uniform fiber populations, among the best recorded for this color to date.

RR Legato is co-owned with Cascade Rose Alpacas. Contact either farm for breeding information.
