Bidding Info


Serenity or Serra as she is called is a second generation girl from Legacy son Taos. She is a ¾ Accoyo full Peruvian gal with exceptional genetics. She was sired by an Accoyo Elite son PHA Accoyo Vortex. Serra brings a well proportioned frame with good bone density and a solid top knot. She is structurally sound and balanced. Her fleece is well worth noting due to her exceptional brightness, high frequency crimp and silky handle.

Serra has matured and carried the incredible fineness of her dam Trinity. She is becoming one of my low micron rock star dams!

For 2014, Serra delivered her first cria, a ultra-white female sired by multi color champion Snowmasters Royal Extreme.

2015, Serra is bred to color champion, Morning Star's Don Diego (a $1,500 breeding fee value). Diego has a track record for producing amazing cria of color out of white dam's. By combining Serra's superb fineness with Diego's density and color (he is a modern dark silver grey), the result should be spectacular!

What is said about Diego (2015 service sire):

His fiber results at just shy of 9 years old are amazing!
2015 Histogram - AFD 20.5; SD 4.4; CV 21.2; %>30 3.3; CF 96.3; still this fineness at 9 years of age for grey is amazing!

His biopsy follicle test (via Ian Watt) is even more impressive!
Density - 62.8/mm with a Secondary:Primary fiber ratio of 13.1:1.
Only 3 grey alpacas have ever tested higher in density and no grey alpacas have a higher S:P ratio (in fact, only 7 alpacas in ANY color have a higher S:P ratio - including white!). You'll have trouble finding a grey to put up a combination of those kinds of numbers anywhere!

And Diego’s lineage is impressive, too - PPeruvian Pluro, Danko, grandsire Crescent Moon’s Rayo Del Sol (6x Grand Color Champ) and Sire Emerald Farms Rincon Cloud, 2005 AOBA Silver Nat’l Grand Champion, are enough reason to want him in your breeding program!

Diego has many cria on the ground & every one of them is lovely. Morning Star Ranch is very happy with all those they have had and there are 6 that can be seen at Epic Alpacas where Serra is currently agisting. 3 of his last batch of 5 cria are all show-worthy and will be the ring in late 2015!

Diego’s string of blues began in ’07 with a rave review from Judge Wade Gease: “This young man had a presence as soon as he entered the ring. His feet glided across the grass, toes pointed straight ahead. He’s consistent throughout-good density, wonder fib
