We have a sire that exudes perfection in every way possible. From his perfect conformation to his impeccable fleece counts, Brilliance of Peru is a model male. When all signs of age point to degrading genetics and representation, Brilliance’s stats reflect one who is years younger. His genetics are proven time and time again with his offspring.
Brilliance’s histogram at 10 years is 20 microns, which is very unusual for his age. So in addition to his histogram, we did a skin biopsy to look at the glands to see how many follicles are in each one. And his glandular structure supports the numbers on the histogram, basically pointing out that his glands are the driving force of his fiber excellence.
Why is this such good news? Well, if Brilliance is bred with females, ones who are also going to add qualities to the offspring, he brings to the table the ability to produce animals that will in turn produce long term fineness. This is his strongest characteristic. If your herd is populated by Brilliance and a dam who has the ability to recreate the same fineness level in offspring, over time the herd collectively will have 20-22 micron fleece counts. There will be a longer term profit, and a long term ability to reproduce these genetics.
Brilliance has a track record in his offspring. His cria have all been excellent and beautiful. He has passed on the characteristics you look for in an animal – a full fleece head, full coverage, perfect conformation, and a gentle spirit. Every one of his cria look just like him. Take a look at some of his offspring: Rainman, Flashy, Aurora, Encore and Zivah.
But you don’t need to take our word for it, just ask Dr. Norm Evans DVM, renowned veterinarian.
I would describe this guy, Brilliance, as a Wow male much ahead of his time. I would certainly like to check some of his offspring for the hybrid vigor he has thrown as they are likely better than him. I have never seen these stats for this age male. Breed this guy to the best females you can arrange to maintain these genetics. There is no fiber blow out with Brilliance. I appreciate the opportunity to be a party of your program.
When considering who to breed with Brilliance, you want to pick one quality that you really need to improve on. Does your dam have great coverage but you want to improve the consistency of the blanket? Make sure you first decide on your end goal and then figure out if you are wanting to have a fleece improvement or a show animal. We can help you figure that out!
