**Moon is part of our alpaca herd reduction sale as we start up our sheep programs. She is being sold open without warranties but is a proven dam and no issues breeding, birthing or nursing when she was active. AOA certificate transfer as a breeder allowed at buyer cost.

She is a low key girl, getting along with all and easy to care for. Moonstruck boasts a great lineage, her own show wins, and most notably a history of awesome crias. When she arrived on our farm though, she was below-weight from a tooth abscess. With ...

AutumnSun's Water Sprite

HuacayaFemaleTrue Black
AOA# DOB: 9/15/20136 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...

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...

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...

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 ...
