Tranquility is a terrific alpaca in her own right; she reveals not only conformational but fleece qualities that one would seek in a solid foundation female. Add to this her wonderful history of top notch production and you have an enticing alpaca to consider!
Her lineage is terrific too; Tranquility is a Snowmass Royal Rose daughter, known by many as "the maker of champions who makes champions": See her sires impressive resume below!
Tranquility is a terrific mom as well - one of the most conscientious of all the dams here at Island Alpaca. She is the most watchful, and nurturing to her cria.
