Bidding Info


This beautiful girl will add style and grace to any herd! With her gorgeous conformation and lusterous fiber she is a true gem. Her sweet disposition and gentle nature make her an alpaca lovers dream!

Luna's herdsire is Nova's Black Knight III, the 2004 Futurity Reserve Champion and son of the legendary true black Snowmass Nova. Black Knight placed above 4 other Snowmass Nova sons at the 2004 Futurity, all of whom had placed at the top of their classes. He has superfine, dense, uniform, bundled black fiber - his first two shearings both had an AFD of less than 20 microns. Luna has her father's elegant, calm presence and excellent conformation.

Her fleece characteristics are true to her heritage with a fine handle and incredibly vibrant, consistent color throughout to include impressive crimp. As the great grand-daughter of the famed Snowmass Peruvian Casanova and Peruvian Drambuie her heritage speaks volumes to the awesome little lady she is!

In September 2012, Luna had a beautiful boy, Amethysto! An absolutely incredible little boy – a stunning light silver grey with unbelievable consistency of color! Amethysto (German for Amethyst) is sure to have a very bright future!

On October 15, 2015 Luna had an inky true black male cria from our AOBA black fleece champion herdsire, Zeppelin! Luna is an excellent mother with lots of milk.

In May of 2017, Luna was bred to the legendary grey stud, Snowmass Enlightenment, and is confirmed pregnant for an April 2018 cria! This ought to be a winner, for sure!
