Congratulations to Derwydd Alpacas for honoring Zeppelin with a place on their esteemed herd sire row.
Zeppelin is no longer available for outside breedings at Delphi Alpacas.

**Zeppelin is the 2013 AOBA National Black Male Fleece COLOR CHAMPION**
This with his 4th fleece - the judges do enjoy rewarding older fleeces that retain superb qualities.

I know, I know - we do Color!
But we couldn't help ourselves.

Two reasons -
1) Check out this fleece - - - And it isn't just pretty,
She has great fineness, And she has the fleece weight too.
2) Check out her pedigree -
Her daddy is Black Pinot Noir - and mom, a Camillio daughter, is loaded with color too.

How often do the winners of the best white classes have black daddies? I've seen it a time or two -
and as we improve our colors it happens more and more frequently.
This lady o...

Both his mom and his dad are National Banner Winners - each of them in both Halter and Fleece!
How many alpacas can say that?
And now - of a total of just 3 Delphi kids born here at Delphi to date - One is a National Reserve Champion in fleece (gray male) - One is a National blue ribbon winner in halter (class of 9 - BB female), and the third is also an absolute rock star, possibly the best of the bunch.

Alpenglow Alpacas and Delphi Alpacas went in search of a silver male -

Description


One of our Very Best producers - "Pelli's" kids are amazing.
She's our top Zeppelin daughter.
Look at her fleece - she's her daddy's girl -
though following in mommy's footsteps wouldn't be a bad thing either.
Her mom Abilene is a white, rockstar show girl - having beaten the best of the best in that most competitive of colors; which is especially impressive when considering that she has a black dad and a dark fawn mom.
Her mother and father are of very rare quality; and Zepeline didn't miss out on any of the good stuff.

Zepeline's histogram results from 2014: AFD 15.4; SD 3.3; CV 21.4
2016 shearing: AFD 18.9; SD 4.2; CV 22.5; >30 = 2.0%
And at 4 years old (May 25th, 2017): AFD 19.83; SD 4.42; CV 22.28; >30 = 2.9 %

Zepeline is showing her daddy's modern grey tendencies.
She's officially a DRG, per the AOA 2017 National fleece show. Entered as an Indefinite Dark, they switched her to the Dark Rose Grey class. Awarded 3rd place - she was given 19 out of 20 points for fineness and handle, and extremely nice scores overall. I'm guessing it must have been a very nice class indeed! Update: Yup - the two that placed above her were a nine time champion, and a three time Champion (and one of those 3 banners was from the Futurity).

Her first Ike son "'Zackly" is exactly wonderful. Straight, Strong, Super Soft, Bright and Crimpy - and he's super typey like his daddy. Now a 2 time Banner winner (in the LF/Beige category) - from modern and classic gray genetics - he's proof it can be done.
Her next cria, Mythic is the same quality - in LSG.
bred for a 3peat - she gave us a classic DRG baby girl.
Then in the middle of our Labor Day Blizzard - her 4th Ike cria was born - a little boy Mini-me - he has his mom's color, fleece, and he's cute cute cute!
Now bred to GE - we have enormous expectations for her next cria. :^)
Stay tuned!
