Ike's advanced Judge's Choice fleece, which scored 87 points - puts him in a very very small class of elite classic gray herd sires.
And, in halter, he was awarded Color Champion at arguably the toughest halter show in the country, the Futurity.

Judged to be superior in quality, by senior judges, in both halter and fleece shows. In showing, This is the mark of an elite male.
And, in terms of Production - he's already p...

Bidding Info


Riva is the dam of Naia, possibly the best alpaca that Delphi has produced in our 26 years.

Riva delivered Delphi's Bloom on 7/15/19. Bloom is typey and So so soft, she'll surely Bloom into another star.
Bloom's full sister Naia was just awarded her second National Fleece Banner. Naia won National CC gray fleece in 2018, and National RC gray fleece in 2019.

Riva represents the very best of Delphi genetics.
Some of Riva's full siblings:
1) Devamani - Futurity Reserve Champion and AOBA National Color Champion Grey female of 2005.
Sold for $34,000 at the 2008 Futurity Sale, mother of National Blue Ribbon Delphi's Shavana, and Ark's Multi-Champion Dubuque.
2) Ava - 6 time Champion Rose Grey female.
3) Ravi - Maroon Blue Ribbon winner exported to Canada/Europe - AFD 16.3 / SD 2.6 / CV 15.8 / 0.4% >30 at 3 years of age.
4) Alice - 2 time Champion maroon female, sold at the 2010 National Auction.

Riva's 38 Special son had the finest AFD result we have ever had here (13.6 at 10 mos.).
Her Golden Legend breeding resulted in a stunning fawn girl, Aviatrix.
Bred to Ike, she delivered beautiful dark rose grey Iko - Reserve Champion at his first (big) show.
We repeated that breeding for Naia. No matter the sire - Riva rocks.
Thank you Riva for your wonderful crias!
Riva will be retiring with us here at Delphi.

Futurity 2011 - 2nd place - class of two. We were disappointed the class was so small.
GWAS 2011 (two weeks later . . . ) - 2nd place class of 13. Peter Kennedy had a tough time deciding between her and the winner of the class, who was the same lovely girl (38 daughter Rossi owned by Zumbador Alpacas) who placed first in their class at The Futurity. But now there were 11 more alpacas to compete with, which made it much more fun!
Nationals 2011 - same competition - unusual results. ;^)
First Place - Fallfest Fleece Show 2011
First Place - CABA Fleece Show - 2012
