Aquaviva Titus
a Brutus boy in medium fawn

Now working in Europe

IAR 86824  Born 7/11/2005 

Having recommended the Brutus mating for Aquaviva Alpacas top girl who we imported for them, we feel like we already owned Titus's pedigree. When we saw him, we just had to have Titus in our stud stable.

His sire,
ILR Alpine Fiber's Brutus, retains 22 micron at 8 years old. His dam Eringa Park Aroma is the same micron at 6 years old. Titus has a certain "certainty" to him only devolved by pedigree

International Golden Fleece Show

World Alpaca Conference Oxford England

At this prestigious show in April 2012 the highest placed NZ-shorn fleece was from Southern Alpacas stud Aquaviva Titus.

Titus fleece took 2nd in the fawn senior class for alpacas aged 4 years and over, with his 7th fleece. The winner was only 4 years old, so Titus did very well for an older animal in this class.
