Sunset Hills Farm Andean Gold

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 awarding him 13 blue ribbons...

Finally! Raina's MF male cria out of Sunset Hills Zagato arrived on 5/9/18 after 366 days of incubation -- 20.5# and gorgeous! Raina is a high quality foundation female that produces high quality offspring, and Sunset Hills Zagato is highly sought after with limited breedings available -- he is now closed to outside breedings, so we feel fortunate to have gotten this little guy!

Raina already has been bred to Sunset Hills Farm Andean Gold! This is bound to be an amazing pairing as well. With Andean's incredible fiber stats and staple length, we would expect an offspring with a lot of very fine, dense, fleece with awesome staple length. Pretty sure this is the magic cross. It's a year away, but we're already excited...and hoping for a girl, of course!

So, we've been watching multiple champion Sunset Hills Farm Andean Gold and his phenomenal offspring. We've also checked out his beautiful fleece -- yes at 15 years old, it's still beautiful and these are his 2017 fiber stats: 2017 AFD 20.8 SD 3.6, CV 17.4, %>30 1.7. He won "The Spirit of The Fiber Industry" Award for 2006. This prestigious award is given annually to the huacaya that exhibits the best fiber in the industry and he did this as a 4 year old! He also won the color champion at the 2007 Buckeye show at 5 years of age and as a grand finale to his show career he took the color championship and the judges choice award at the 2011 Buckeye show at almost 9 years of age.

Raina is a full peruvian -- 1/2 Accoyo, 1/2 Alianza -- medium fawn daughter of Heather's Acre Accoyo Sirius. She has abundant, bright fleece, with excellent density and coverage right down to her toes. She has stellar conformation, with great bone and an awesome head! In addition, she's a great mom and she has an incredibly gentle disposition. Her lineage includes Hemingway, Vengador, Predictor, Odyssey and others.

For a short while, Raina's 2018 cria, Man in the Moon's Peruvian Titan, will sell with Raina. Titan is out of Sunset Hills Zagato, who is stamping his cria out consistently one after the other....and already has multiple first place Get of Sire, with only about a dozen offspring on the ground! He is one of the last Zephyrus male offspring, and he is highly decorated in the show ring winning multiple championships and two Judge's Choice awards. His fleece is soft, dense and spectacular with high frequency, high amplitude crimp structure. His conformation, stellar! Looking at Titan this early, it appears he'll follow strongly in his herdsire's footsteps.


Raina was never shown, though she certainly should have been.
