Bidding Info


Congratulations to her new owners Buck Brook Alpacas! At her first show for them, she was selected Color Champion!

Zari is just beyond adorable. Typey Typey Typey, perfectly straight and strong, a face to die for and a personality to match.
Now add her silky fleece - yup I'd call her a "silky" for those who love that style.
High luster and locks of bold crimp - very fine and soft.

Mom and dad are both National Fleece Champions -
so not a big surprise that this one is so special.

Take a moment to visit her father's page - Zeppelin is a rock star. Zeppelin genetics have been selected by Snowmass Alpacas; Snowmass Alpacas purchased one superior black Zeppelin daughter, and three lovely black females (bred to Zeppelin) from us, for their black breeding program.
Zeppelin has extraordinary fleece - please see his page for his long lasting fineness stats.

Zari's mom, Appeline, has the honor of possessing the most uniform fleece ever produced here at Delphi (in over 20 years). She has little to No apparent guard hair anywhere on her - a trait passed down from her father Avatar. Appeline's National Color Champion juvenile fleece tested at: AFD 17.7 / SD2.3 / CV13.0 / 0.4 %>30. The SD and CV are exceptionally low, most notably for such a fine fleece. Please see her page for additional fiber results.

Zari herself was shown as a juvenile without ever having been cria shorn.
She placed 6th in a very tough class of 13 at Nationals at just barely 6 months of age.

Then she placed 2nd in a class of 8 at Level 5 GWAS - where she was was compared very favorably with the winner of her class, who then went on to receive the RC black female, as a juvenile.

We then showed her fleece at the extremely competitive National Show - she placed 5th in a class of 11. Very Nice considering she hadn't been cria shorn - which makes fleece shows especially challenging.

It was a really tough decision -
but we have decided to offer Zari for sale.
You will absolutely love this young lady.
