Eringa Park Peruvian Irraquoy
Show success in Australia

Progeny Show success in New Zealand

Irraquoy was considered for the prestigious Australian National Auction 2002 as a two year old before he was bought to come to NZ.

He is a full accoyo male of magnificent pedigree, great fleece and he has won a string of broad band show ribbons in Australia.

Now his progeny are doing the same in NZ  with  87 show ribbons.

Pedigree: Irraquoy is sired by top accoyo male NWA Ltd Ruffo, who was the number one pick at the 1994 Peruvian Elite Sale and was purchased by Haldane to be taken into the USA, and subsequently on to Australia.

In 1994 Ruffo was shearing 17.8 micron spin fineness, and is still shearing 24.21 micron fleece 8 years later.

Irraquoy's dam, ILR Ppperuvian Lupin is also from Peru, via the USA. Every one of her offspring has been a Show success. She shears 21.8 micron spin fineness at 8 years old.

So with background like this it is not surprising to find Irraquoy shearing a dense fleece weight with the following statistics on his second shear.
Mean micron: 18.0
SD 3.1
CV 17.2%
SF 16.3 micron
Irraquoy's third fleece at 21.6 micron won second in adult fleeces at Mackenzie Show, behind Brutus, who took Champion fleece.
Irraquoy has an immaculate show record in Australia. As well as many Champion ribbons at local shows he has:
Reserve Champion Junior Male Hamilton (Australia) 2000
Champion Junior Male Royal Adelaide Show 2000
Champion Junior Male Strathalbyn Show 2000
Champion Intermediate Male Melbourne Wool and Sheep Show 2001
3rd Senior Male - Royal Adelaide Show 2002

The judge said he was "an exceptionally fine male with superb crimp definition and lustre".

Irraquoy is registered as solid white, but is light fawn as some spots have developed with age.

Progeny: Like father, like son - and daughter.  With progeny like this, we are delighted in Irraquoy's performance. His cria are strong, with a real presence.

And they are winning their classes in the show ring with  87 show ribbons, including 15 championships and 4 supreme championship in both animal and fleece classes.
