Huacaya, Female (Bred), Unproven | Medium Fawn
Empress has been bred to Admiral. We anticipate a CHAMPION cria from this Juggernaut/Admiral combination of genetics.Sahara's 1/2 sister, Starlite was the 1st cria from the Admiral/Juggernaut combination of genetics and she is absolutely gorgeous. Starlite's show record speaks for itself as she is now a 3X COLOR CHAMPION being awarded JUDGE'S CHOICE (Championship of Champions) as a 6 month old juvi at the Buckeye Alpaca Show (her 1st show) (2011). Also winning her first Championship Banner and a Blue Ribbon. We are so pleased with Starlite that we bred Empress (a Juggernaut daughter) to Admiral hoping to get another "Starlite" from this same mix!
Wow! Empress is a gorgeous little lady with a pleasant disposition. Full Peruvian and 1/2 Accoyo, Empress looks like she is going to be a very nice female. Her dense fleece is showing a very nice consistent crimp structure all over her blanket...up her neck...and down her legs.
With her great conformation, attractive head, incredible fineness and density Empress is following in the footsteps of her elite fleeced sire, Juggernaut, our 7X Color Champion Herdsire.
Empress's lineage is impressive including the infamous, LIGHT ROSE GREY, (Full Accoyo) McGwire! He has sired many greys, blacks, and champion offspring. He too is known for his density, shearing 14.5 lbs in 2002! (He has to be shorn every 6 months!) McGwire's sire is (Full Accoyo) Peruvian Victor, perhaps one of the most famous Accoyos in the country. Victor consistantly threw crias with deep crimp, fineness, and amazing staple length!
Empress's grand dam, PRA Lindy, is daughter of the reknown (Full Accoyo) Allin Capac. Allin Capac was one of only three SHERE KHAN sons EVER imported to the United States, and sired only 8 offspring before being sold to Australia, making Empress's genetics truly rare! The Shere Khan line is known for its amazing density. Other lineage boasts both Accoyo Grandmaster, Altiplano Gold, and Peruvian Leah (a champion producer and a champion herself!)
Empress and her 1/2 sisters (all Juggernaut crias) are dominating the show ring as juvi's! Empress (MF) takes a 1st Place ribbon at Buckeye. Starlite (LB) took JUDGE'S CHOICE, Color Championship and a Blue Ribbon as a 6 month old juvi at the Buckeye Show (her 1st show). Princess (LB) is now a 2X Reserve Champion. Shadow (TB) takes a 2nd Place ribbon at Buckeye.
We are very excited by the fleece structure we currently see. She is an exciting prospect and we believe she will be a wonderful producer in the years to come.
1st Place // Halter 2011 Buckeye Alpaca Show. Lvl IV show! (Sara Jane Maclennan's comments...Impressed with her density. Commented on her brightness, fineness and consistency of crimp throughout.)
3rd Place // Halter 2011 Indiana Alpaca Invitational Lvl IV show! (Sharon Loner's comments...I was quite impressed with the degree of density. She is the youngest in her class. Even staple length. This is the first time showing for this girl and she is going to do well for you. Keep showing her and I would like to see her again.)
