Bella Wind Sprite

HuacayaFemaleMedium Fawn
AOA# DOB: 11/5/200811 yrs
Sprite is the knockout daughter of the 2003 AOBA Nationals fawn color champion, MFI Monsanto. In 2003 alone, Monsanto won two other color championships, at MAPACA and the Virginia Classic. His elite fleece beat some of the best to take these top awards, and now his daughter has followed in his footsteps with her own first place finish at the 2011 MAPACA Jubilee Fleece Show! Sprite's dam, now deceased, was the beautiful 1994 Peruvian import, PPeruvian Sanccochay. Sprite is a stunning female with her sire's regal presence. She has enormous bone in her feet. Her fleece has advanced architecture, with high-curvature crimp, and beautiful bundles. It has good density AND is very consistent from...
Rainier's Nala Cloud

Rincon Cloud daughter!

Rainier's Nala Cloud

HuacayaFemaleMedium Silver Grey
AOA# DOB: 7/18/200910 yrs
Nala is one of two girls on our farm sired by the spectacular 2005 AOBA Grey Color Champion, Emerald Farm's Rincon Cloud, son of Crescent Moon's Rayo De Sol, who is himself the son of the gorgeous grey, Patagonia's Danko. Nala's dam, Grand River Cheila, has been a rock solid foundation dam for Rainier Alpacas, consistently producing show-ring and herdsire quality crias. Nala is very easy to handle for herd health, but loves to strut her stuff in the pastures! This girl is unmistakably a Rincon Cloud daughter! Nala certainly takes after her daddy with her proud show-ring presence! She has inherited Rincon's density, and has tiny crimps extending well beyond her blanket, even high up on ...

Grand Master line

Grandstander's Globetrotter

HuacayaMaleBeige
ARI# AOA# 32730029   DOB: 5/16/20127 yrs
Update: Trotter has produced grey out of grey! Check out his second son, Highland Phantom! Grandstander's Globetrotter (Trotter) is everything we could have hoped for! Pairing out best-quality Monsanto daughter with a stunning Accoyo/Allianza cross out of the Grand Master line, resulted in a truly exceptional boy! Trotter has a boxy build with an enormous bone structure that he inherited from both his sire and his dam. Trotter's beige fleece has everything going for it! Fineness, beautiful brightness, very good density and staple length, and medium-amplitude crimp! His fleece is well organized in distinct bundles, with exceptional head and leg coverage right down to his big-b...
Rincon's Aramantha

Rincon Cloud daughter

Rincon's Aramantha

HuacayaFemaleMedium Silver Grey
AOA# DOB: 12/18/200910 yrs
Aramantha is one of two girls on our farm with the West Coast genetics of the 2005 AOBA National Grey Color Champion, Emerald Farm's Rincon Cloud. Rincon comes from a champion grey lineage, sired by Crescent Moon's Rayo Del Sol, and grandson of Patagonia's Danko. Aramantha's dam is our Chilean foundation matriarch, dark silver grey, MFI Cadence. Aramantha is a lovely grey girl with very correct confirmation. Her color is a very even medium silver grey, with an adorable black heart on the left side of her back! She is actually a bluish grey, which always brings compliments from our shearer. Each year, with the first sweep of his shears, he always comments "Oh, what a GORGEOUS color!" ...
My Peruvian Equador

Skin Biopsy by Dr. Evans

My Peruvian Equador

HuacayaMaleLight Fawn
ARI# AOA# 817854   DOB: 2/21/200019 yrs
For those who need the scientific stats provided by skin biopsy to back up the claim of lingering fineness, here they are! In June 2012, we had then 12-year-old My Peruvian Equador evaluated by Dr. Norm Evans, who states that "Equador's strong fiber traits are his fiber density, cluster regularity, S/P ratio, gland density, and fineness. He shows few fibers over 30 microns. This male is loaded with prepotent male genetic fiber traits that have been associated with champions. Consider breeding him to biopsied females to maximize his genetic potential." His numbers: Density 55, S/P ratio 13.2 to 1, Gland Density level 3 of 4, Av. secondary fiber diameter 22.9 microns, Av. primary fiber diam...
Landmark Farm's Seraphina

Bueno Line

Landmark Farm's Seraphina

HuacayaFemale (bred)Bay Black
AOA# DOB: 10/20/20136 yrs
Seraphina is one big beautiful girl! She has the most exquisite carriage and is simply elegant when she moves! Seraphina's maternal line hails from extremely hardy Chilean stock that produces big crias, with very high IgG's, that grow big fast. She did not lose a single ounce on the day after her birth. Instead, she gained four pounds in her first five days! She was weaned at 5 1/2 months at 78 pounds! Seraphina's sire, My Peruvian Equador, has put an upgraded fleece on her. At birth, she was so dense it literally took some digging to even find her skin before we could get a color card at the base of the fiber to determine if she was a true black or bay black. She is holding he...

Peruvian Black Mesquite son

Landmark Farm's Puddle Jumper

HuacayaMaleMedium Brown
ARI# AOA# 32319668   DOB: 10/4/20118 yrs
Pud is a lovely boy sired by the late TRULY GREAT black herdsire, Black Mesquite. Mesquite was co-owned by Magical Farms and Flying Pony Alpacas. Breedings to Mesquite were restricted and he commanded a stud fee of $7500! Puddle Jumper's dam iwasa daughter of My Peruvian Osbydian and granddaughter of Mr. President. She was certainly an attention grabber with the WOW factor because of her rare fawn and brown patterned fleece! Her fleece retained its fineness, still Grade 2 Baby Alpaca, at nine years of age! Pud is a gorgeous male with a very soft, rich copper-brown blanket. From day one, his fleece was a bundle of tight curls, which have now organized into a wider spaced and higher ampl...
