Kokomo Alyst

Champion Black - Canadian Futurity

Kokomo Alyst

HuacayaFemale (bred)Bay Black
AOA+CLAA# DOB: 6/24/20173 yrs
What can I say about Kokomo? Well...she is out of the #1 ranked female for AFD and SF. She is bay black. She looks just like her sire Kix. Her crimp style is very high frequency and very uniform everywhere. Kokomo is exactly the result we wanted when we paired Pocahauntus and Kix together. Time will tell if she has that amazing lasting fineness possessed by her dam. Kokomo has a special place here at KJ Alpacas. She is definitely a strong girl that will hopefully replace her dam in our foundation herd. Wow...just sheared and just wow! I think she will actually be grey as she matures but her fleece is unlike any black I have ever seen. Stunning! Kokomo is due to deliver this spri...
