Description

Grand River has just released the information that DARK SHADDOW has been retired. We have loved this male from the 1st time we seen him and have been very happy with his offspring we have seen. Although we are saddened by this news we are happy to have bought this male. We feel certain he will carry on the excellence of the DARK SHADDOW line. His show record speaks for itself receiving several blue ribbons and 4 Championship banners!

If you are looking for a high end light brown male then look no further! Luminosity is the full package and we are very excited about this boy! Luminosity's siblings are all blue ribbon winners and all high end quality. All have won their first blue ribbon at 6-7 months of age and his full sister, Esperanza, won a championship as well at such a young age. Luminosity got his name because his fleece is so very bright it glistens not to mention it is also very dense and crimpy. His conformation is excellent and his coverage is complete from head to toe. Luminosity carries strong sought after genetics from his sire, Dark Shaddow, who is ranked the top true black herd sire in the US having won the prestigious 2006 Reserve Herd Sire of the Year award as well as having won several championships himself and producing offspring winning more than 50 championship awards. Luminosity's grandsire is the late 4Peruvian Legacy, the highest selling alpaca in history and his great grandsire is Caballero Adante. With black genetics in his pedigree Luminosity carries the ability to produce high quality offspring of dark colors. He already has several black off spring, when bred to black,on the ground. Luminosity's second cria, Isaiah, has taken the blue in his first two shows. Isaiahs first blue was a class of 8 at the Southern Select where he was the youngest in the class! His second blue came in a very competitive class of eleven entries at the Best of the US and he was the second youngest in this class! Book a breeding to Luminosity so you to can enjoy winning in the show ring.
