Catalina has produced phenomenal offspring, including National Brown Color Champion, Sweet Pines Torino!

Catalina's fleece is an exquisite medium brown with a SOFT handle and tight, consistent crimp. She has straight conformation and a perfect bite. She is one of those friendly, confident alpacas that catches your attention right away. And then when you start looking at her pedigree, you know you can't go wrong...especially if you are breeding for superior QUALITY COLOR.

Daytona's cria have proven just how capable Daytona is at producing black with such a variety of dam colors. We are thrilled with his offspring. They are dense, silky, crimpy, extremely well put together conformationally, and have such lovely presence.

In 2016, Daytona produced 5 black, 1 dark grey, and 1 brown cria. Dams ranged in color from black to beige, but most were fawn and brown. Daytona exceeded our expectations.

Bidding Info


If you are looking for depth in color, fantastic fleece characteristics, a solid conformation, and a winning personality, Azera will win your heart. We are thrilled with the quality of Azera's offspring - very little guard hair, incredible brightness, length, and lasting fineness, and such great bone substance with very attractive conformation. Plus Azera has passed on her inquisitive, pleasant personality. She is a consistent quality producer.

Genetics: Azera is the daughter of Aussie Hudson Hawk, a true black champion with phenomenal fleece, and Sweet Pines Catalina, an award winner and producer of champions. Her grandsires are Show Me the Money and HVLA Legacy's Eldorado (a charcoal grey 4Peruvian Legacy son).

Fleece: Azera's fleece is dense, with wonderful crimp and coverage. She has a very nice handle, and has won top awards, including 2nd place at the AFCNA Continental Fleece Show (level 4).

Conformation: Solid, strong bone, straight legs, great bite, and balance.

Azera's half brother is our own Sweet Pines Torino, 3x Reserve CHAMPION, GWAS Color Champion, and AOBA Nationals CHAMPION.

Azera was bred to our daughter's new jet black herdsire, multi-champion Crescent Moon's Daytona, for a stunning female cria in 2016, Sweet Pines' Manzanita. Please check Daytona out on Brandy's website, alpacaharmony.com. Manzanita is wonderfully conformed with Azera's charming personality and an incredibly fine fleece. She is almost a spitting image of Azera's 2011 son, Eclipse.


2nd Place - 2009 AFCNA Continental Fleece Show (level 4)
3rd Place - 2009 Alpaca Affaire (composite)
