Co-owned with Amber Autumn Alpacas We were able to have the chance to partner our ownership with Legionnaire with Amber Autumn Alpacas at the at the Breeders Edge Auction in 2014. This fawn Snowmass Matrix Majesty son has it all! CCNF Legionnaire comes from a long line of Elite colored alpacas from Cas Cad Nac and Snowmass.

AutumnSun's Water Sprite

HuacayaFemaleTrue Black
AOA# DOB: 9/15/20137 yrs
This girl was born in the middle of a storm, found sitting in a puddle with the shelter roof runoff pouring over her head. She had such long fleece and she was so wet that we could not tell if she was a suri or a huacaya until we figured out who her dam was! While being dried, after she had warmed up, she started kicking and fight our efforts -- a really good showing of her fighting spirit. So, her name is a reflection of her notable start and impish nature. She is super friendly -- always trotting up for her greeting as we enter the paddock and coming to us usually when we call her name. Bred to Grand River Marquis, she produced a lovely, buttery soft classic medium silver grey gir...

Grand River Marquis

HuacayaMaleDark Silver Grey
ARI# AOA# 31983341   DOB: 7/1/201010 yrs
When this male arrived on our farm after having been recently shorn at his birth farm, we a bit shocked to see that they had sheared him to the skin everywhere except his topknot, and that they had cut back. So, now over a year later, we are finally seeing the 'Marquis' of his youth in his recovering fleece coverage. What we did see right away was just how deliciously soft Marquis felt, like royal velvet, to the touch. And, he showed rolling of his skin at his neck -- often demonstrative of improved density. As he continued to grow, we observed that his fleece was very dense. This is even more impressive when you consider how his very fine merino type crimp, like most other similar f...

Then, her cria by Orionn is a fantastic copy color-wise of her! She pushed dark color over the service sire's white. Bred to black, Genesis has produced a very nice black female! ...

HuacayaFemaleLight Fawn
AOA# DOB: 6/9/200713 yrs
Kamala came to our herd with a notable lingering fineness, which is not surprising from a long line of fine fibered animals. Her sire, Denver Rio Grande, is a Pperviuan Royal Fawn and Pp. Leon grandson. And her dam, Brigetta, was observed first hand to have a fine fiber still at her age! For her 2015 cria, Kamala has been bred our new stud Orionn, an Accoyo America Apocalypse son. Both Kamala and Orionn have had crias with a very nice fleece -- crimpy, soft, and shiny -- in color! Her boy, Daystar, has EXCELLENT fiber characteristics! He is white/beige with two small brown spots on his side but his fiber is off the charts in brightness, fineness, crimp and bundling, and coverage. He...

We knew Captain Midnight was special the minute he was born. We had no idea just HOW special. Captain currently has 18 banners in both halter and fleece. One of those banners is a coveted Judges Choice Fleece. At his very first show Captain was 1st and CC as the youngest entry in his yearling class. 5C's Captain Midnight won Champion and Res. Champion banners for his 2-year old and yearling fleeces at the 2015 AOA Fleece Conference!!!! These placements and that of his little brother Cardiac Arrest earned Cinco C's Alpacas the Classic Breeder's Cup at the Conference. Captain Midnight is one of the Best of our Best. His dam, 5C's Chocotini is one of our highly coveted females. ...

This little girl is the darling of our farm.... the 'little sister' of everyone, she can do no wrong ;). She is quite gentle, always easy to handle. Her fiber is beautiful to boot, so we are excited about her breeding future on our farm! She did great at the 2015 GWAS, her only show yet, getting 1st in a very large class of dark alpacas! We love her looks, and her growing confidence as she matures! She stands stall and curious, in good health. With her first pairing to our classic MRG male, AutumnSun's Apache Longbow, Puzzle made a cute LF with brown toes and ear tips. This guy is very nice looking, even if he is not the grey we expected! ;)...

A strong pattern history and still loaded in Peruvian / Accoyo heritage! Fine, crimpy, dense fiber.... Imitation produced a solid color when bred to solid, in our cute as a buttom "Not Just a Girl" -- a MB 2015 female. Then, she produced her appaloosa girl, Firefly, sired by our appaloosa herdsire Jacob. She is already special with her strongly delineated dark brown, almost bay black, spots all over her white/beige backround. We predict that she will retain her clear spotting --just like her sire, Jacob -- rather than muting into a harlequin grey. That is exactly what we were breeding for! This year, Imitation producted a full sister to Firefly who is so close in appearance tha...

13x CH G.Thunder girl! Judge's comments from one of her first shows as juvie shows one of her fiber qualities... brightness ..."light shining in your eyes!", "so soft to the touch"..... Carnival is a delight to touch and has the fiber to take on the 'big farms' -- shown by her placement in walking fleece above a multiple champion female of 'royalty' bloodlines. Petite in her juvie and yearling days, she is well grown and filling out nicely for her anticipated career as a breeding dam. Her fleece too has been getting better and better in crimp definition, exhibiting fineness, uniformity and density....

Such a cute, well developed and grown out girl with extremely (over 7" staple) long fiber, we were all thrilled when she was freed of her massive coat of then tired fleece at her 2016 shearing. Her cria fiber with its tui tips was so long the wind actually whipped the ends so that she was tangled, cotted and dirty on her ends. This held her back some in the ring, but you could appreciate her potential when looking at her fleece down a the skin. Merida grew up big and strong, with long staple and a lovely handle. Merida continues to be a huge sweetheart -- loving to kiss you - even when bred to Brutus. ---- We LOVE her Brutus boy... cannot wait to show him off! Now she is bred ...

This male has one of the finest fleeces of all crias ever born on our farm. It has beautiful crimp and organization, shine and staple.

We had been looking for quite a while for that one special black male to add to our herd in complement to our Dark Secret / Black Maestrom line. Fate smiled on us when we saw Stradivaruius as a juvenile to add to our program. Even in his tui tips, when we saw this male, we knew he was the one and acted immediately. Though we knew he was exactly what we wanted for our black program, we could not help be pleased with the confirmation of our opinion by his exceptional show results.
