Popham Thunder

Black Stud - Champion black male 2012

Popham Thunder needs little introduction as he has been a permanent feature in the UK show circuit in 2010, 2011 and 2012. Thunder is very well bred and comes from two family lines that have uniform and predictable bloodlines  that continue to perform to the highest degree. Conformationally Thunder is correct, upright and has great presence  and strength. He displays a very true to type head and he is extremely well covered in fibre. The fleece on this male is where he really excels. He is a very high fleece growth rate, fineness and density.  Each highly aligned fibre is uniform in micron and colour and this uniformity spreads right down under the belly and  up into the head.

Popham Thunder is co-owned by Inca Alpaca and Blackberry Alpacas.
