ARI# 1280838 | DOB: 6/15/2006
The bread and butter of an alpaca farm is a strong white program and to achieve that you need a white male so exceptional that he can improve on the some of the finest fleece that a huacaya can possess. Our fawn herdsire, El Nino’s Golden Legend, has gotten a lot of attention at our farm, but we knew that our light color program would not have legs unless we had a white male that was Legend’s equal. This brought about the creation of Mile High Peruvian Bandimere. This is a male that we bred ...

Bidding Info


Mile High Daytona is that rich mahogany color with black points that is striking and catches the eye. Yet, when you open his fiber you won’t believe your eyes. It’s a fleece that we have a hard time believing is possessed by a dark animal. He has a tight consistent crimp from skin to tip. It is bright, dense, and very fine. We are very excited to have this male make his mark in the show ring. He has only just begun his show career and won a class of 13 animals at GWAS 2012.

His father is multi-champion Mile High Peruvian Bandimere, our premiere white herdisre, a male that we raised and sought to create for the role of spearheading our white program. Through his sire, Daytona has some of the strongest fiber genetics on the market. His grandfather is Brilliance of Peru (owned by Golden Spirit Alpaca Ranch), a male that turned our heads at a show and we sought to replicate by breeding our strongest white female to him. We knew Brilliance’s fine popcorn-like fiber was about as good as alpaca genes permit. We were thrilled to achieve this in our stud Bandimere. But, imagine this in a colored male. This is what we got in Daytona. Daytona’s mother is Chipita, a foundation female in our black breeding program. Chipita produces those dark-colored typey cria that sell by appearance alone. People visit the farm, notice one of her coal black cria standing regal and statuesque in the pasture, look at the fiber and fall in love even more. Chipita has given us colored babies each time, no matter the color of the sire. We saw the opportunity to really push for a superb black or brown cria by breeding her to Bandimere. And that’s exactly what happened.

Daytona is the step forward in our color program that we aim for with each cria, but can’t always achieve. He has the regal presence to gain your attention, and the quality of fiber to make you do a double take. This is a male that will improve on the next generation of alpacas. We believe this guy has the potential to be one of the best dark-colored herdsires in the country. He has the scope of fiber quality and conformation that put him ahead of the curve for the standard dark alpaca. With the traits he has to offer his offspring will be at the forefront in the show ring.
