Banderas is an EPD Top 1%er! His stats are excellent overall, but his EPD in staple length soars. Did you read Ian Watt's article in Alpacas Magazine? YES, length matters! To that end, we are still using this oldie but goodie to cover our females with shorter staple length. His latest cria was born on 7/20/19.

BANDERAS IS A MULTI-CHAMPION THROWING ULTRA FINE CHAMPION OFFSPRING IN A VARIETY OF COLORS. And now we are seeing grand-offspring that are absolutely phenomenal. This has been especial...

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


Sweet Pines Desiré is a full sister to National Champion, Sweet Pines Torino and 3/4 sister to Champion, Banderas' Dasher. Thus, it's no surprise that Desiré has grown into a high quality, well balanced, conformationally correct, and very sweet female. Her fleece is soft with bold crimp and a beautiful rich mahogany color.

Genetics: Desiré's dam is out of HVLA Legacy's Eldorado, a charcoal grey Accoyo 4Peruvian Legacy son. Other elite Peruvian genetics on her dam's side include Accoyo Augusto and PPeruvian El Moustachio.

Desiré's sire is the multi-champion Spanish Peaks Banderas, a dark rosy roan, producing phenomenal award-winning offspring with extreme fineness (15 microns!) in a variety of colors, including rose grey and black. He is also an EPD 1%er for length! His Snowmass breeding program lines include Peruvian Victor and Peruvian Pluro.

Desiré's full brother, Sweet Pines Torino has won CHAMPIONSHIPS from large competitive shows such as GWAS and NATIONALS. One judge said of his fleece, "What more could you ask for?"

Desire's 2019 cria, a cinnamon brown boy, is sired by multi-champion black Crescent Moon's Daytona. This is a tremendous opportunity as Daytona has produced phenomenal award-winning offspring. Desire's little guy has a really lovely fleece.
