Her Dam, LBA's Abigal was one of our main Kirwin daughters that we could use for breeding dark colors. (please see Allison's pedigree for more in depth genetic details).She was a drop dead gorgeous medium fawn female that we picked up from Crescent Moon Ranch whileist being bred to a top black male at the time.

Description

Red Granites Alydar By Val D Lsere has melted our hearts and brought tears of joy to our eyes with becoming the first EVER grey alpaca (Suri & huacaya) to win the Judges' Choice award at The Futurity, we are beyond the words can explain what this means for us, and how it exemplifies how far our program has truly come.

Alydar was clouded over, or walked the hay bale, during these big awards cause he is a grey, and greys haven't been receiving recognition for their fleece because of their color. That has changed when the Futurity Judges saw Alydar. Kevin O'Leary said, "This gray male is so uniform and fine, we felt he was such an incredible example of his color group that he deserves to be recognized for this advancement." Hearing those words let us know we are doing the right thing with our breeding program.

Knowing his line has taken us over 10 years to get the baby-fine fleeces and has gotten blacks judges' choice wins for the first time at shows, makes us so emotional seeing that we hold not only the only male to win 3 AOA National Supreme Championship titles but now the only alpaca that is grey to win the judges' Choice at The Futurity, from the same bloodline.

Being now a respected 12X Champion and Judges' Choice winner he has proven his fleece and sire very well.

His fleece angel-like and delicate" with "superior uniformity omicron on" and carries the "dangerous combination of fineness and density". He has been noticed for something thaonlyny he may hold in this gray breeding world.

Red Granites Alydar By Val D Lsere will start his breeding career at Red Granite Ranch around next year or maybe late Summer. He is currently showing interest in ladies at RGR. Sooooo, until then, make sure he is on your list, cause he will be a powerhouse like his genetics have proven before, and will be a very limited Herdsire.

Comments from the 2020 ABR Fall Fest Fleece Show:
"Excellent fineness and outstanding character with high level of density. Appreciated the staple length for growth period."
(Scored 19.5/20 for fineness/handle)


Alydar bred to a female on 5/23 and re-bred to her on 6/8. Hoping she takes this breeding! If the breeding takes we will offer him to outside breedings! Cheers!
