Viho is one of the exquisite Inca sons that we have chosen to carry on Inca's genetic legacy within our suri herd.

Viho has what we refer to as an "elite suri fleece" characterized as a super fine fleece exhibiting extreme luster. At Chelsea Farms, we are working to unlock the genetics of the pre-conquest elite suri. The use of pedigrees, measurement of production characteristics and monitored performance will aid us in making intelligent and wise breeding and selection decisions. We believe that LCA Viho will be a key component in our quest to unlock the elite suri genetics of Incan times. A quick look at his show results emphasizes the quality of this exceptional herdsire. He has continued to win fleece shows at 4 years of age.

Senior Alonzo Burgos and Juan Chavez of Grupo Inca, Arequipa, Peru both agree that LCA Viho's fleece represents the ideal elite suri fleece. Senior Burgos said "I would love to have this young suri macho to use in our experimental alpaca breeding program, Pacomarco." This is possably the best comment we have ever recieved. Pacomarco is an alpaca breeding ranch located at 13,300 feet elevation in Puno, Peru. Its purpose is to breed exceptionally fine fleeced alpacas which can then be shared with the smaller breeders in Peru to improve their breeding programs.

Viho's offspring are stunners and those lucky few to have crias from him are thrilled with the results! After seeing Viho's first cria drop in 2007 and the ones who have followed, we are confident and secure in the future of the genetic improvement in our breeding program and in the key role Viho will play.

We are offering 5 outside breedings to Viho for 2012.
