Well I'm pleased that I persuaded one of my dear clients to let me have Melina back along with her new Vortex son, Vista. That combo of her background matched up to our Full Accoyo boy Vortex should produce stunning offspring every year with the fineness, crimp, brightness and uniformity we strive for.
You have whites, and you have some REALLY nice whites. 1/4 Accoyo Melina fits into the really nice category. No surprise when you see her dam and sire, and grandsire (Altiplano Gold). Her fleece took 3rd place honors out of 9 entries in the very competitive white class at MIAF 2007 so we were very pleased.
Melina has always been in excellent health, high IgG at birth, mom had lots of milk so her growth record is excellent. Excellent bite and conformation.
Melina will be bred back to PHA Accoyo Vortex again this Fall.

PHA Accoyo Vortex is now owned 100% by ALPACA HEIGHTS! To celebrate we're offering reduced stud fees for the first 5 breedings of 2012. Contact Mary for more info or to request a fiber sample. We have several offspring here at the farm to evaluate as well.
We challenge you to find a herdsire whose first offspring average a micron of 18.07, SD 3.82, CV 21.34, CF 99.46. And no, they were not tested at birth, but rather all were 7 to 8 months of age and eating grain! All have extreme brightness, zipper crimp, fineness and density.
Vista's lineage includes no less than 3 Multi-Champion Producers....Accoyo Elite, Altiplano Gold, and PPPeruvian Astillero. The photo of his fleece tells volumes. I utilize every ounce of white fiber I produce on the farm and it's important it be high quality. It's alpacas like Vista that provide me that high quality. An excellent herdsire choice.
Vista is unproven but wanting to breed. He is penned with Venturo and I prefer they would sell together.
