PrairieMoon's Chantilly Lace

PrairieMoon's Chantilly Lace

HuacayaFemaleWhite
AOA# DOB: 9/15/20128 yrs
Chantilly is a white female with fine fiber. Chantilly is a good Mom; easy to breed and birth with plenty of milk for fast cria growth. Chantilly had her first cria in 2015 by El Nino's Golden Legend, a female named PrairieMoon's Starr. We liked Starr som much that we bred MOm back to Legend for a 2016 cria - maybe another girl is in the works. Chantilly’s Dad is JFS Orion and her dam is our Lily. Jefferson Farms equals “Fineness into Maturity” and Orion is one of the few Alpaca herdsires that Jane Levene uses in the few Alpacas that she breeds now that her focus has shifted towards Paca Vicuñas. Lily is one of our older ladies that has maintained her fineness into maturity: at 9 she is...

PrairieMoon's Darla

HuacayaFemale (bred)Dark Brown
AOA# DOB: 5/28/20138 yrs
Darla is a dark brown female with black markings on her face. Darla is a 4th generation female on the farm and like her Mom is a real looker. Darla has a typey head, fuzzy ears and is very pretty. She has a large frame and is conformationally correct. You know how you think "gee that Alpaca is really elegant and regal looking" and then a few months later you take another look and think "she is really pretty" - well that is Darla. She has matured into a really lovely lady. Her dam, PrairieMoon’s Inca Gold, was a blue ribbon winner at 2010 GWAS at 2 years old. Darla 's 2016 BMF Taos' Zeppelin cria is here and she is stunning.

PrairieMoon Zeppelin's Buffalo Gal

HuacayaFemale (bred)Dark Fawn
AOA# DOB: 7/29/20155 yrs
PrairieMoon Zeppelin's Buffalo Gal is stunning from the day she was born and she is still lovely with an Avatar baby on the way in summer 2018. Solid square confirmation, typey head, dense fine bright fleece - coming from both Dam and Sire. Fleece that bundles and glows. How could she be anything but lovely. Arturo Pena, TexOLAN judge, said she was lovely and felt that her fleece would become denser as she matured since she was only 6 months old at the show. He commented on her fine bright consistent fleece and square conformation. Sharon Loner, Fall Fest judge, commented that Buffalo Gal's fleece was VERY fine and soft with minimal guard hair. Buffalo Gal continued to win Ha...

AOA# 829619
Avatar has wonderful crimpy, dense, and fine fleece, but what truly separates him from the other outstanding herd sires is his phenomenal handle - due to both exceptional uniformity and bright low scale fiber. Cameron Holt, AOBA Senior Judge Trainer and world wide fiber expert, gave the following scores to Avatar's fleece: Fineness: 15 out of 15 ; Handle: 5 out of 5 ; Uniformity of micron: 7 out of 8 ; Crimp: 8.5 out of 10 ; Density: 3 out of 5 ; Brightness: 8 out of 10 ; Lack of medullation: 8 out of 10. His daughter Delphi's Lailah won Color Champion Grey Female Fleece at the 2012 Nationals. His son Delphi's Rama won a Blue Ribbon at the 2012 National Fleece Show, and brown Color Champion at the Tenessee Waltz Fleece Show. These two insured Delphi's win of the 2012 Classic Cup for fleece at the 2012 Nationals. Avatar's many crias now include Five (Update - make that Six) AOBA National Halter or Fleece Champions, several Futurity Champions, and many many Multi-Champions and Blue Ribbon show winners, (at least 45 Championships and well over 80 Blue Ribbons), in addition to the winners of many Special Awards, such as the Best Brightness award at the National Fleece Show - possibly the first time this award was awarded to a grey! Avatar may be available this spring for breedings at Alpaca Annuals in Colorado - contact Susan Mikulecky for terms.

HuacayaFemale (bred)Bay Black
AOA# DOB: 7/14/20155 yrs
PrairieMoon Zeppelin's Darling Girl is a carbon copy of Daddy in looks. Darling Girl is a bay black girl and has a strong regal stance, large frame and loads of that spider web crimpy fleece that is Zeppelin's legacy. Arturo Pena, the judge at TexOLAN, said she had a sturdy frame with a long dense fleece. She was placed lower in the class because her back legs were a little gangley - but let her grow some and mature a bit and then please show her again. At 3, Darling Girl's front and back legs are stright and conformationally correct. Darling Girl is bred by El Nino's GOlden Legend for an August 2018 cria. With genetics from Zeppelin and Legend this cria should be special - what...

PrairieMoon's Getty Up and Go

HuacayaFemale (bred)Medium Brown
AOA# DOB: 9/18/20128 yrs
Getty Up and Go got her name because she hit the ground from the womb, stood up and immediately started to run – not walk. She has calmed down a bit and is now a mature elegant lady with a calm demeanor. Getty Up and Go seemed too big a mouth full for a name so we call her LuLu after her Mother, Annie Luvenia. LuLu is medium brown (that pretty red brown color), conformationally correct with a typey head and cute fuzzy ears. When the babies run and play LuLu goes with them and still runs and runs like she did as a cria. Annie Luvenia is a GWAS Color Champion and her sire is Catch-A-Romeo. Romo sure puts his “look” on his offspring and as with LuLu, it seems to continue into future gener...
