El Nino's Clarita

Our very special girl!

El Nino's Clarita

HuacayaFemale (bred)White
AOA# DOB: 8/1/200217 yrs
Clarita is our first home raised girl, and what a beauty. The daughter of El Nino, and granddaughter of Camilio, she has all the right genetics. She is a charmer and was a wonderful first cria. We didn’t show Clarita her first year, as we were so new in the business, but on her way back East to be bred, the Lavans, of Chase Tavern Farms offered to show her at MAPACA, where she got 4th in a very large (14) class of yearling white females. Clarita has produced five spectacular daughters for us and is one of our best production females on the farm. Clarita’s 1st cria Valencia has an awesome fleece with amazing density and brightness and a histogram at 11 months of 16.9 AFD; 3.2 SD; 18.3 CV;...

Outstanding True Black Male

Skyline's Jedi Master

HuacayaMaleTrue Black
ARI# AOA# 31612685   DOB: 5/16/200910 yrs
Jedi Master is one of our up-and-coming True Black Herdsires that also has Grey genetics in his background. Jedi has perfect conformation with outstanding bone density and a beautiful head. His fleece is very bright and has nice crimp, density and fineness as well. Jedi Master’s first cria, Princess Leia, is the spitting image of her Dad, and every visitor on the farm takes notice. She took home ribbons at every show she went to in 2013. We couldn't be more pleased! Since we loved what Jedi Master produced for his first cria, we also bred him to several of our girls for 2013 and 2014 cria....

We were thrilled to add WP Zacchaeus to our herdsire row when we purchased him at the 2014 Priority auction. What we loved about Zacchaeus is his fleece has amazing fineness, density and staple length. Plus for us, the added bonus that he is only related to a very few of our females.

ATV Silver Elation

Oh My Gosh!

ATV Silver Elation

HuacayaMaleLight Silver Grey
ARI# AOA# 31118149   DOB: 5/5/200712 yrs
Silver Elation is a rare dilute silver gray with an incredibly soft, well bundled and consistent fleece without any spots. This male was born with a distinct Classic Silver Gray pattern which all but disappeared as his fiber dried. Every person who has seen him has been impressed by this amazing fleece that appears platinum in color with white in the neck, bib, face and legs. When we took him to two very competitive shows in 2008, he was put into an indefinite class which did not allow him to show appropriately but he still won the Blue Ribbons. Proudly Co-Owned with ALPACAS of Tualatin Valley! Silver Elation son, Gunsmoke wins 1st and Reserve Color Champ at Alpacapalooza 2012

He is very fine and well conformed. He looks Rose grey, but when you open up his fleece, he could be Silver. We hope to get him cria shorn soon. We will keep this boy!

DRG Matrix Daughter

Snowmass Tupelo Honey

HuacayaFemaleDark Rose Grey
AOA# DOB: 6/12/200910 yrs
Unfortunately, Tupelo Honey passed in May 2016. We have great hopes for her last cria, Hot Tamale who is a stunning Light Silver Grey. Snowmass Tupelo Honey is an absolutely astounding young Roan-Grey Color Fleece Champion. Her Dam, Snowmass Fineness Matters, is one of Snowmass' finest Bay Black females. Tupelo Honey's sire is no other than Snowmass Matrix who is owned by Ernie & Barbara Kellogg of Double O Good alpacas. As Matrix is now gone from Snowmass they are very VERY tight about selling any of their Matrix offspring - especially these rare Greys. We are proud to be her new owner!

Skyline’s Gunsmoke is a fabulous Light Silver Grey Male and a product of two of our best Grey alpacas.

Skyline's Daphne

HuacayaFemaleLight Fawn
AOA# DOB: 9/27/20163 yrs
Skyline’s Daphne is an amazing Light Fawn/Beige female that was a real surprise for us given that her Dam’s Sire is True Black, LMFI Peruvian Black Midnight, and Daphne’s Sire, Skyline’s Francisco, is Medium Sliver Grey and a son of a grey dam, HDF Francy and a black sire, Snowmass Nova’s Nuance! I remember when she was born I thought, A light Fawn, REALLY! But Daphne is a very impressive gal that has awesome genetics and a beautiful dense, fine and crimpy fleece!
