Delphi's Appeline AFD 17.7 / CV 13.0

National Color Champion Fleece

Delphi's Appeline AFD 17.7 / CV 13.0

HuacayaFemaleDark Brown
AOA# DOB: 8/19/200613 yrs
Appeline hasn't wanted to get pregnant for the past few years - so she's unavailable at this time. Here's hoping she changes her mind! ** AFD 17.7 with CV of 13 at 9 months of age ** Five Blue Ribbons and Two Championships ** The 2007 Brown National Fleece Champion This little lady is one of the Very best. Super typey, a sweet little imp always in the middle of what's going on. And What a Fleece - I couldn't stop myself from putting my hands into it every chance I had after she was born - one of the Very Softest Handling fleeces I have Ever felt. Combine that with wonderful lock density and high frequency crimp - she's a winner. Simply stunning is what the judge comment...

HuacayaFemale (bred)Medium Rose Grey
DOB: 7/11/20172 yrs
Naia is the 2018 gray National fleece Color Champion - and now the 2019 gray International fleece Reserve Color Champion. Oh My Goodness, we Love this girl. In 25 years of skirting for show (and you all know I've skirted more than a few rock stars - wink) I have Never skirted a fleece less than Naia's. Our shearer shears big - so that I can make the skirting calls. Yet, I kept looking - and I kept not finding - any reason to skirt. It's all the same amazing quality. This one is very very special. And all of this on a strong correct frame - lovely conformation, great bite, Naia is easily one of the best we've ever produced. On 5/17/18: AFD 15.2 ; SD 3.8 ; CV 24.7 ; 0.8 % >...

Both his mom and his dad are National Banner Winners - each of them in both Halter and Fleece! How many alpacas can say that? Alpenglow Alpacas and Delphi Alpacas went in search of a silver male - that would complement our herds' fineness, brightness, and uniformity - that would maximize character and fleece weight - that would exhibit the typey style that the judges look for. Our goals were to improve fiber production in every capacity, while at the same time producing top show alpacas. Lofty goals - but we found him in Gray Enough.

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. St...

Congratulations to our friend Annie Hunt of Willow Wind Farm, for acquiring a share of Avatar. Please contact Annie about Avatar breedings. We are thrilled with Avatar's newest creations - including Delphi's Avella - The 2017 National grey female halter Champion at just over 6 months of age. And congratulations to Avella's new owners, Debbie and Dale Hoerl; Alpacas of Moose Creek Ranch! Many more Avatar crias will be arriving in 2018. Avatar has beautiful crimpy, dense, and fine fleece, but what separates him from other outstanding herd sires, is his phenomenal handle - due to both exceptional uniformity, and very bright, low scale fiber.

A Paca Fun's Super Sonic

HuacayaMaleMedium Silver Grey
ARI# AOA# 32284911   DOB: 5/31/20118 yrs
A Paca Fun's Super Sonic is the culmination of 3 generations of breeding for elite gray. Beyond his eye appeal, and solid conformation, Sonic's fleece is exceptional. His fleece is dense, fine and displays a "3 dimensional crimp style" not often seen in grays. It also exhibits extreme uniformity of color, with most of the individual fibers being actually gray (as opposed to a mixture of black and white). All of this in combination makes Sonic one of the best total package gray males we have ever seen... and apparently the Judges agree with us! Following in his sire and grandsires footsteps, Sonic has been a force to be reckon with in the show ring. To date he has 14 championships, 12...
