Description

We don't know much about Sunny's early life - her original owners retired. But happily, she found her way here to Delphi, and we are just thrilled to have her.
Sunny gets her harlequin genes from her great-grandfather, Peruvian Platinum. Platinum was the father of one of our very first herd sires, Platinum Flashback. Flashback was a lovely "platinum harlequin" colored male, who we took as a juvenile, to the very First Futurity Alpaca Show ever held. He won a second place ribbon - beaten only by a white Accoyo with a fawn spot. Yup, back then they showed greys with multis - alpaca showing was still pretty new.
Flashback sired many fun colored alpacas, including our Stella Nova. Stella Nova stopped traffic, she was a gorgeous cheetah colored harlequin - DSG with a fawn face covered with black spots. We sold Stella Nova at a Celebrity Auction in 2002. We have dabbled in harlequins ever since - they are just so much fun to breed! But it was difficult to achieve the same quality of fleece in our harlequins, that we were getting with our best greys.
Happily, I think we may have solved that little issue with Sunny -
She has an extremely sweet fleece for a 6 year old girl. Her Accoyo genetics are shining through in her fineness, brightness, and character.
5/25/17 (at 70 months of age):
AFD 19.72 ; SD 4.16 ; CV 21.07 ; CF 97.42 - with a curve of 91.6. Yup - 91.6.
No matter the color - we expect a rock star cria from Sunny and Ike - which is how we plan all of our breeding here at Delphi. Color is just the icing on the cake. So yup, Sunny fits right in. :^)

Oh boy Oh boy Oh boy - - Lumos has arrived!
Sweet Sunny had a little boy, and we're thrilled he's a boy.
Fawn? Or . . . . ?
Pictures coming.
LOVE this baby - and so does Sunny. Yay!!!
