EP Cambridge Fortitude is a rare release from the EP Cambridge Core herd. Not only does he herald from one of the herd’s female dynasties but he is the son of EP Cambridge Peruvian Spartacus.
His Grand-dam, EP Cambridge Peruvian Octavia, had only two progeny following her importation from Peru but both were to be of the highest possible quality. Her first was the famous EP Cambridge Valour who became a national champion in 2004 and is now in the top five of stud males at EP Cambridge – given the stiff competition this is no small accomplishment. The second of Octavia’s progeny was a daughter named EP Cambridge Khairunissa, dam of Fortitude. This daughter of Jolimont Conquistador and Octavia was always destined to be amongst the most eliteof EP Cambridge breeding females.
Super dense sire, Jolimont Conquistador has been extremely good to Fowberry Alpacas, with his son Bozedown Viscount helping to shape our herd. Many of Viscount’s daughters are in our elite female bracket, because of the quality of the offspring they produce to EP Cambridge Top Account.

Fortitude has so much depth and success in his lineage, EP Cambridge feel certain that his breeding career, which commenced in the latter part of the 2008/2009 breeding season, will be unrivalled in its success. In 2015 his son Fowberry Antonio was 1st Junior Male at the British Alpaca Futurity and his progeny have won championships on the UK show circuit.
