Delphi's Appeline AFD 17.7 / CV 13.0

HuacayaFemaleDark Brown
AOA# DOB: 8/19/200614 yrs
Appeline hasn't wanted to get pregnant for the past few years - so she's unavailable at this time. Here's hoping she changes her mind! ** AFD 17.7 with CV of 13 at 9 months of age ** Five Blue Ribbons and Two Championships ** The 2007 Brown National Fleece Champion This little lady is one of the Very best. Super typey, a sweet little imp always in the middle of what's going on. And What a Fleece - I couldn't stop myself from putting my hands into it every chance I had after she was born - one of the Very Softest Handling fleeces I have Ever felt. Combine that with wonderful lock density and high frequency crimp - she's a winner. Simply stunning is what the judge comment...

We lost Ava in 2012 due to complications delivering her cria. It was a devastating loss - but we feel we should include her here in our foundation herd, as one of Avatar's very best offspring. She did her daddy proud, and gave us so much joy while she was here. Ava is Devamani's full sister. Devamani was the 2005 National grey female Color Champion. Devamani was also Reserve Champion at the 2005 Futurity, among numerous other championships. Ava was undoubtably one of the best rose grey females in the U.S. in her time, and she showed it. Thank You to Amelia and Avatar, and to the grace that has given us their wonderful kids. Ava was the spitting image of her daddy. And he gave her ...

Vicki is simply an exceptional girl. She is a good sized girl with extremely dense and soft crimpy fleece. High frequency with high amplitude too.

Vicki delivered a gorgeous very dark brown Golden Legend son Iliad, who went on to win a blue ribbon in a class of 5 yearlings at GWAS 2015. Vicki has proven herself to be an excellent mom! Nothing more we could ask of this girl. Her next cria is another beautiful maroon boy, Pericles - so slick, crimpy and shiny - superior boy.

We expected Lailah's fleece to do well at it's first show - and we were thrilled to hear she had been awarded Color Champion Grey Female at the 2012 AOBA National Fleece Show.

We are suckers here for handle and brightness - and this lady still exhibits the softness and character that makes us anticipate great things. "Tupie" is a great mom, an easy keeper, and full of personality. Lots of milk and nicely protective of her daughters! We adore her very maroon spotted colors too - she really stands out.

Congratulations to our friend Annie Hunt of Willow Wind Farm, for acquiring a share of Avatar. Please contact Annie about Avatar breedings. We are thrilled with Avatar's newest creations - including Delphi's Avella - The 2017 National grey female halter Champion at just over 6 months of age. And congratulations to Avella's new owners, Debbie and Dale Hoerl; Alpacas of Moose Creek Ranch! Many more Avatar crias will be arriving in 2018. Avatar has beautiful crimpy, dense, and fine fleece, but what separates him from other outstanding herd sires, is his phenomenal handle - due to both exceptional uniformity, and very bright, low scale fiber.

In 25 years of skirting for show (and you all know I've skirted more than a few rock stars - wink) I have Never skirted a fleece less than Naia's. Our shearer shears big - so that I can make the skirting calls. Yet, I kept looking - and I kept not finding - any reason to skirt. It's all the same amazing quality. This one is very very special. And all of this on a strong correct frame - lovely conformation, great bite, Naia is easily one of the best we've ever produced. On 5/17/18: AFD 15.2 ; SD 3.8 ; CV 24.7 ; 0.8 % >...

Yay! Classic DRG baby girl born 8/29/19. One of our Very Best producers - "Pelli's" kids are amazing. She's our top Zeppelin daughter. Look at her fleece - she's her daddy's girl - though following in mommy's footsteps wouldn't be a bad thing either. Her mom Abilene is a white, rockstar show girl - having beaten the best of the best in that most competitive of colors; which is especially impressive when considering that she has a black dad and a dark fawn mom. Her mother and father are of very rare quality; and Zepeline didn't miss out on any of the good stuff.

Her sire is the renowned Avatar, her dam is a classic silver gray, and the mother of two time AOA National black female fleece banner winner, Delphi's Risa. With two classic gray parents - I guess I shouldn't have been surprised when I examined her first shearing and saw all of those silver fibers in there! There is quite a lot of gray - some would consider Kaeya to be a modern rose gray. A camera just don't capture it well enough to judge her color with a photo, so please ask for a fiber...
