RIVER'S CRYSTAL KIERNAN was awarded COLOR CHAMPION AT THE INTERNATIONAL ALPACA ODYSSEY in 2013. Crystal takes first out of all dark female juveniles and color champ out or all dark females. Crystal's fiber already shows Kiernan's super ability to improve his baby's fleece. Crystal has rich brown fiber and impeccable conformation. Her dam is quite tall and as a two year old so is Crystal. Crystal is a big girl and perfectly put together. The judges remarks as to why she chose Crystal for the color champion was her uniformity of fineness and conformation. She commented, "this alpaca has a general lack of guard hair and a consistency of fine soft fiber throughout her entire fleece".
The most amazing trait of this girl is her conformation and stature. She was only 10 months with her IAO and California Classic championships. Her fiber is wonderful but so is her body type. She really has it all and could make any breeder another champion with the right breeding.
Crystal is now bred to Silver Rose Sentinel of Arapaho Rose Alpacas, a proven dark grey with a long breeding history of champions. Sentinel will improve her EPD for staple length. Sentinel EPD superiority is that he is in the 1% for staple length, and perfect as a pairing with her EPD picture. If you purchase Crystal she will come with a breed back to one of our sires, or you can choose a price rebate of $2000 if you don't choose a breed back.
Crystal was evaluated by Dale Davis in February of 2013 and her remarks were "Lovely body type, good fleece density, good architecture, very solft handle, few guard hairs and consistency of fiber is very good. Her only negative is "the staple length is just a bit less than expected for 8 months, but definitely show material".
