Argentine Fresco x Zensarra
Platinum RTC is a great example of our breeding program at RTC, crossing big bone Argentines to silky/suri animals. Platinum has all the desired qualities and look of the new wave llama- shorter nose with great ears, great colorful fiber with coverage from ear to toe, big bone with stretch, depth, and width. His sire, Argentine Fresco, was born in quarantine in Santiago before the Argentine importation. RTC Ranch purchased Argentine Moore (Platinum’s Grand Mom) in South America before these animals were imported in 2001 – she was bred to Don Zunca. Argentine Fresco has produced some of the top animals at RTC Ranch the past ten years. His "get" finished in the top five several years in a row at the celebrity show – you can view Fresco and his cria’s on our website. Platinum’s dam NV’s Zensarra was purchased by RTC Ranch with the idea of breeding her to Argentine Fresco, again crossing big stretchy suri females with the Argentine bone and traits. Zen is a big, stretchy, suri grey female with a great show record. Zen’s sire Night Vision was 2009 Celebrity Double Grand and Best of Show Adult suri male. Platinum RTC is 50 percent Argentine. If you're looking for a male to add bone, width and depth to your herd, and give you the traits of the new wave, he could be your animal. Both his sire and dam are silver/grey so his striking silver grey color is no mistake. Call Randy with questions at 402-540-4058 or view details and more pictures on our website www.rtcllamaranch.com.
