Summer was purchased to bring some density to our foundation. Summer is a solid production dam who any breeder could get many quality alpacas in the years to come. Summer's next herdsire will be Bluegrass Peruvian Prophecy who will bring exceptional fiber fineness to her next 2014 offspring and the genetic insurance to continue that fineness in their offspring. This is an exceptional value for any buyer. The breeding she comes with is worth the this price alone.
We have three daughters of Summer who we are using for our foundation breeding program. Let summer start bringing density and fineness to your breeding program. She is an easy breeder, great mother and gives birth with ease. She is also a dam who will feed other cria's in need, an attribute difficult to find in the alpaca.

When we looked at this boy at the futurity, Dave & I were simply blown away. I have never seen fiber this beautiful. His full brother was the high seller at the 2016 Futurity auction. Not only is his fiber incredibly dense it is long with the most luster & character I have ever seen. And this was not just our appraisal, everyone at the show were amazed by he and his full brother fiber. Breeder of A Man Among Men Faye Farley of Majestic Meadows was awarded breeder of the year for Man's father Jumangi. Also, Herdsire of the year. We are so honored to have the progeny of this Herdsire of the Year at our ranch.
This boy's fiber and phenotype was identical to his high selling sibling and father Jumani, the only difference was his fiber was lighter. We purchased him on the spot and then he went into the show ring and won first for light and color champion in a very large 2016 field of alpacas. Man Among Men has been winning ever since. His show record rivals and surpasses man
What a wonderful outcome of the breeding of our Juliette to Snowmass Snow Cloud. A joining of Accoyo and Snowmass. Snow Cloud has been honored by AOA for being in the top 75 animals in the nation for expected prodigy determinations across all fleece traits. That is truly a major accomplishment and sure to make this girl something special, not only in her fleece character, but her genetic capability.
Queen has it all. She is compact, square and her personality is absolutely unique. She's friendly and curious. Juliette brings that Accoyo fiber character mixed with the genetic predictability that her future EPDs will give her. No doubt her histogram will be wonderful. Dad Snow Cloud EPD for 2016 are listed under the fiber tab above. Snow Cloud has 5 fiber traits in the AOA 1% club. Quite a great choice for out breeding program. We keep breeding back to Snow Cloud, because he is that good.
Hopefully, Queen will also be gifted with her mother's density and staple length. Queen will certainly be one of most important foundation dams. A great candidate for embryo transfer when the time comes. Queen's fiber is very fine. Upon visualization she appears to be approximately 13-14 microns. (I was spot on with her 2016 AFD at 14.7) She has exceptionally long staple length, and density is good. Ultimately what grabs you is her luster and brightness. She has very few guard hairs in any given sample. What is especially good is her SD at 3.7, making her uniformity quite good, to match her fineness and staple length. To match the actual fiber quality as evidenced in her histograms, her genetic capability is also very good with her outstanding EPD values, and here they are:
