Sprite is the knockout daughter of the 2003 AOBA Nationals fawn color champion, MFI Monsanto. In 2003 alone, Monsanto won two other color championships, at MAPACA and the Virginia Classic. His elite fleece beat some of the best to take these top awards, and now his daughter has followed in his footsteps with her own first place finish at the 2011 MAPACA Jubilee Fleece Show! Sprite's dam, now deceased, was the beautiful 1994 Peruvian import, PPeruvian Sanccochay.

Description



UPDATE: 9/20/20 Touche' has moved to Pendle Alpacas where he re-joins former herdmates, Smudge and Speed Bump, who moved to Pendle almost four years ago as part of a herd that consists exclusively of fiber males.

Just before Touche's fourth birthday, we decided to geld him since he never had the final growth spurt we were hoping for. He was absolutely stunning as a yearling and we intended to use him in our own breeding program, especially to cover our greys.

Touche' won first place AND Highest Scoring in a Color Group in the very first Handcrafter's Spin-Off he was entered in, the 2016 Carolina Alpaca Celebration! He has since continued to win spin-offs, the most recent, the 2018 Southern Alpaca Celebration. Landmark Farm does not show in halter classes because of the expense, the stress on both the alpacas and their humans, and for bio-security concerns.

Both of Touche's parents are very heavy-boned alpacas, and Touche' has got some serious 'cankles' on him! He looked like a little tank as a yearling. Crossing the Peruvian Monsanto line with Peruvian Lancaster produced a lovely boy with Grade 1 fiber, that is the most marvelous multi-colored hues of light to medium fawn, which is frowned upon in fleece shows because of color inconsistency, but which fiber artists absolutely go nuts over! We are not breeding for the commercial market. We are breeding for the cottage industry, and Touche's fleece either gets snapped up on shearing day by a fiber artist, or, when we keep it to have processed into yarn, his skeins are some of the first to fly off the shelf in our farm store.

Alas, his overall confirmation and size is not what we want to see in a breeding male. We do not breed our males "just to see what they can produce." They can have stunning fleece, but if the conformation is not there, end of discussion. That's fine by us though, because Touche will be one heck of a fiber gelding!
