We own Elizario with Crescent Moon Ranch. Scott Miller has stated that Elizario retains one of the very best fleeces he has ever produced. His fleece betters as he ages because it is so consistent year after year. Incredible fineness and brightness pair up with highly evolved staple development. The consistency, as demonstrated by the low CV, creates an amazing handle. Elizario is a six time champion in some seriously tough competition, and he won for good reasons. We all look forward to the im...

Brokered for Absaroka Alpacas in Brighton, Colorado!

In March 2013, Catalina kicked off her show career in Texas with a shiny blue ribbon! Her fleece is gorgeous - shiny, well organized and crimpy with a lovely handle.

Catalina began her halter show career with a blue and retired with a blue! She matured into a large, well grown, female with excellent density, good organization and fineness.

On May 27, 2015, Catalina earned her way into our foundation herd with a gorgeous white female cria, Absaroka Carolina La Belle, sired by Sunset Hills Golden Thunder. Both dam and sire have excellent EPDs so this should be an impressive gal when she grows up! She is certainly beautiful!

In June 2017, Catalina gave birth to a gorgeous white male just a few days before our vacation to Missouri. "MO" has been registered as Absaroka Smooth Operator and we are watching him mature with interest. He has a beautiful head (with a beard!), solid bone structure, fleece with advanced architecture and a long staple.

Like mom, both Belle & Mo rank very well in the EPDs. Catalina's top 1% for % medullation is earned by an impressive .6% (yes, that's point 6%) medullation as a 6 year old producing female.

On June 16, 2019 Catalina delivered a gorgeous female cria, Cadencia, sired by High Plains Whiteout. For information about Whiteout see Xanadu Alpacas' website.

July: Catalina will be breeding to Escondido's Makulu for a June 2020 cria.

Catalina, bred to Makulu, with Cadencia at side, would be an excellent package for the discerning breeder that uses EPDs in their program.

8/23/13 -- Catalina's fleece was sorted and graded by a Certified Sorter. Entire blanket grade 1, both primaries & secondaries! No primaries extend beyond the blanket, no tender fleece. Luster=9/10, Uniformity of Crimp/Lock = 8/10, CPI = "7-8 wow". This CPI indicates high frequency, low amplitude fleece.
