ARI# 842897 | DOB: 8/22/2002
Wow! We love this guy. Andean Gold is the offspring of our Multiple Champion Tell Vaccoyo's Secret who is from the well known Victor's Vaccoyo! Andean is of medium build, has a very full fleeced head and shorter muzzle. His fleece is superb with dense, rich fiber that has a fine handle and consistent bold crimp throughout. His coverage is unbelievably complete from head to fetlock. Andean is just a perfect example of an alpaca that has it all, and the judges agree awar...

Bidding Info


Goldrush is a compact, sturdy male with excellent conformation, a fully fibered head, to die for fleece, and a great temperament to boot. He is the product of a lovely Peruvian Zephyrus daughter and Sunset Hills Andean Gold, winner of the fiber industry award for fleece! He looks just like Dad, and anyone who knows Andean Gold knows that he won one of his multiple championships and Judge's Choice at nine years of age! Goldrush takes the best of both these iconic lines and blends them into one phenomenal package. Fresh off an impressive performance at the Showtacular, Goldrush was praised for his brightness, organization, consistency and density. He is outstanding, and we have started breeding him on what is sure to be an outstanding breeding career. We offer half interest.

Goldrush's first cria has arrived! A handsome BROWN male out of a white dam! Who would have thunk it?? Guess the color is certainly coming through. His 2nd cria, also from a white dam, looks to be either medium or dark fawn with Dad's vicuna pattern. Goldrush added a beige female from LF dam Rockette. 3 great looking crias. You're welcome to come visit them and will be seeing them in the ring next Spring!

For 2017 crias we've taken Goldrush to darker dams, dark fawn and black.

UPDATE: Goldrush's boy Lunar has been tearing up the Spring '17 show season. He just returned from MAPACA with a 1st place in the Small Breeder's Show in a class of 8. He followed that up with a flip-flop with his 2nd place competitor in the Jubilee in a class of 11. His brother Copper will join him this fall once we sort out his rose grey situation on his 2nd fleece.
