AOA# 32089813   D.O.B. 2/16/2011 (9 yrs), 5/8 Peruvian, 3/8 Chilean

Caligula's Troubador 

Throws Black!

Caligula's Troubador

Huacaya, Male, Proven, Medium Brown, 3/8 Peruvian, 1/4 Chilean
ARI# 30533363 | DOB: 7/1/2008
Troubador has excellent conformation and a very solid build. He's a beautiful, chocolate color with black points and great (as the photos show) presence. His fleece is bright, extremely dense, with a medium amplitude crimp and a soft handle. He took first place at the 2009 California Classic where the judge was surprised at the quality of his fleece.

Troubador has quite a few cria on the ground and they are carrying his conformation, density and coverage. So far he has given us true black an...

San Antonio Gal's Solana  

Bred to Sentinels Denali!

San Antonio Gal's Solana

Huacaya, Female, Proven, Dark Fawn, 1/2 Peruvian
ARI# 835841 | DOB: 5/1/2001
Solana is bred (pregnancy confirmed) to 17 X Champion RR Guns' Kit Carson for her 2018 cria. Based on her previous cria, we expect that this cria will carry the sire's density and likely be grey or black. Given her retained fineness and epds, we think this will be a stellar cria!

Solana was part of our original herd purchase. She came to us with Reveille at her side. While he was an accidental breeding (to a suri), he shows that, bred to light color, she will produce a dark cria. So far all ...

Bidding Info


Knight has been a favorite on our ranch since the day he was born. Our 4-H kids love him! He's been easy to train and has a pleasant personality. He was the second black cria born on our ranch and was a total surprise! Both parents are a dark red/brown. But his sire Troubador has black points that we hadn't considered! His conformation is excellent and his fiber is no slouch either!

Knight's true black fiber is very bright, dense and uniform, with great staple length. And his EPDs indicate he will pass those characteristics on. Unlike many black alpacas, his fiber is non-fading, meaning that his fleece will be true black when processed!

At age four, he has settled his first females with pregnancies confirmed and due this spring. Unfortunately, our priorities have changed and we won't be using him in our breeding program to the extent we originally thought. So, this is your opportunity to add his genetics to your herd. Buy him now and see what his genetics can do for your herd!
