Legacy's PHA Peruvian Taos is a champion producing Full-Peruvian 3/4 Accoyo 1/4 Allianza herdsire. Taos was sired by renowned 4-Peruvian Legacy 6016. Taos is also the proud grandson to El Moustachio from his dam side. To sum it up, Taos is the only Legacy son to carry the genetics from El Moustachio.

Taos carries a phenomenal fleece that is known for fineness, crimp and luster. He has proven time again his ability to pass down these characteristics to his crias and the ability to maintain l...

Description

Congratulations to Steve and Casey Aitchison of Epic Alpacas in California, on their partnership in Zeppelin!
He will be at Epic Alpacas in October - please contact them for more information on his availability!

Also Congratulations the Anne and Richard Phillips of Prairie Moon Alpacas here in Colorado, on their purchase of Zeppelin as well. They will host Zeppelin during the prime Colorado breeding season!
Zeppelin is no longer available for outside breedings at Delphi Alpacas.

**Zeppelin is the 2013 AOBA National Black Male Fleece COLOR CHAMPION**
This with his 4th fleece - the judges do enjoy rewarding older fleeces that retain superb qualities.

Congratulations to Snowmass Alpacas on their purchased of one black Zeppelin daughter and 3 black females bred to Zeppelin; as well as a female bred to him from another farm. We'll be watching for his kids in their show string!

Zeppelin's first baby to ever show, fawn Zeppelin's Rainsong, purchased by The Alpaca Group, won a color championship at her first show!
We are honored that Zeppelin's genetics have also been chosen by Pacific Crest Alpacas / Accoyo America.

Shearing Weight
2009: 6 pounds total = 7.2 pounds annualized.
2010: 9.5 pounds total = 8.75 pounds annualized
2011 = 10.1 pounds annualized
2012 = 10.8 pounds annualized

Zeppelin is throwing lots of black.
From black based dams his early production totals were:
From 8 TB dams he has thrown 3 TB, 1 DSG, 3 BB, and 1 DF cria.
From 2 BB dams he threw 1 BB and 1 LF cria.
From 4 Silver greys (black base) he threw 3 TB and 1 MB.

But regardless of color - with Zeppelin it's ALL about the fleece quality -
for example look at his daughter Tessla's fleece at lower right -
she sold for $18,000 at auction last year, after being awarded CC, Best Brightness and Best Hand at the Alpacamania Fleece Show. Tessla's yearling histogram: AFD 12.7, SD 2.0, CV 15.6, %>30 0.0. (!!)
My pick of our litter last year was Deltana - a fawn with the kind of fleece we dream of.
Congratulations to Bari Padgett on her purchase of Deltana!

His dad, Taos, a stunning Legacy son, had a 22.9 AFD at 7 yrs.
Zeppelin's mom tested at 21.3 AFD at 7 years as well. Zeppelin also offers correct conformation, impressive presence, size, coverage, and substance of bone. His crimp, luster and dense lock structure are stunning - staple length is extreme. Zeppelin is full Peruvian and 3/8 Accoyo.
We thank David and Julie Wroblewski for allowing us to add Zeppelin to Delphi Alpacas' herd sires.
