Legend Hazit (aka Duke)

Huacaya, Male, Proven, Medium Silver Grey, 1/8 Peruvian, 1/4 Chilean
ARI# 31508155 | DOB: 6/1/2009
We acquired Duke after his owner's health problems had him sidelined. So we don't know much about his history, but we felt he had good potential as a herdsire. So we have been slowly introducing him into our breeding program. We've bred Duke to a few girls now and and are finding that as he matures, he has a great ability to handle those "challenging girls" that somehow won't submit to another male!

His first cria is on the ground! She is a very pretty peachy colored girl out of a beige dam ...

Fabulous Rose Gray Fleece!

Pandora of Argonaut

Huacaya, Female, Proven, Medium Rose Grey, 1/4 Peruvian, 1/2 Chilean
ARI# 32751482 | DOB: 5/21/2012
When Pandora's owners decided to retire, a friend suggested we take a look at her. With a mulit-champ sire and a quality producing dam, her lovely light rose grey would be an asset to our grey breeding program. We were in the area so decided to stop by. And we're so glad we did!

Pandora was an older maiden, so our first priority on getting her home was to get her bred. We chose one of our silver grey boys, Duke (AKA Legend Hazit) for his fleece density, character and long staple length. And...

Bidding Info


From day 1, Donovan has had striking good looks and lovely style. At cria shearing, we found him to be a beautiful light/medium rose grey with a chocolate "dipped" pattern on his belly and legs. And even as a youngster, his fleece had really nice density and organization, not to mention fineness!

At his first show (CA Classic 2018), Judge Peter Kennedy noted his density, fineness and organization when awarding him first place in Halter.

Then at the 2018 National Alpaca Fleece Show, Judge Wini Labrecque awarded his fleece 80 points and first place (out of 5), noting a beautiful, organized fleece with fineness throughout. His high score helped earn us the Small Breeders Cup, a very high honor!

In the fall, at the Gold Country Gathering 2018, he placed 2nd in halter, with judge Jude Anderson noting his uniformity, density and long staple length, with a slightly less fine fleece than the 1st place alpaca. But the icing on the cake was walking fleece where Judge Sara Jand Maclennan awarded him first place, noting his fineness, handle and uniformity, with very good density and above average balance across the score card!
