Amelia continues to produce! She recently delivered another daughter by PC Running Late, a full sister to our white CC, Running Late’s Shasta Amelia was blessed with a very fine, bright fleece with little modulation, typical of Rico Suave progeny. Her first histogram came in at AFD 13.8 SD 3.2 CV 22.9 %over 30 0.5. She has retained her desirable fleece traits over the years. She’s a foundation female for us. ...

We are excited to announce the addition of what we consider the best Accoyo Titan son who holds incredible EPD numbers and is a producer of Champion offspring in the show ring, PC RUNNING LATE! He's here! and more beautiful than I could have hoped. Running Late is very impressive looking like a two year old macho with loads of presence, perfect conformation and bite, full topknot. We have females bred to Running Late on our sales list-we have 12 confirmed pregnancies, all but one with a single breeding. Running Late will be a perfect complement to our Zion, Golden Sage and Royal Treasure lines Breedings will be limited to only ONE outside on farm breeding($2000), and TWO drive...

Greener Pastures Taka Number

HuacayaMaleBeige
ARI# AOA# 32156461   DOB: 6/14/20128 yrs
Taka Number seems to defy antagonistic traits. His 6th fleece won the fleece competition at the EDU, back in 2018, competing against 52 other fleeces, 3 years old or younger. That sums up how his traits are holding up. Taka has outstanding architecture, in a huge, fine, dense fleece that typically is 4 1/2" - 5 1/2" in length at shearing time. The amount of fleece that comes off this animal is eye opening. His neck fleece is just as good as his prime blanket, and nearly as long. At 7, he is still retaining decent fineness for a breeding male, along with a very soft, dense fleece, with a long, well defined staple. His offspring to date, are all nice improvements over the dams, a...

Xanadu Un Peu De Soleil

TGF Royal Tribute daughter

Xanadu Un Peu De Soleil

HuacayaFemale (bred)White
AOA# DOB: 5/27/20164 yrs
Soleil's conformation drew us towards her in the very beginning. She has a very stylish head and a presence about her. Very nice frame and bone. Her fleece is very fine and uniform from front to back, and top to bottom. Soleil has reasonable density with outstanding brightness! She has a very soft hand as is to be expected, given her uniformity of micron. We were thrilled to add this girl to our growing group of Stud Females. We anticipate great things from Soleil as a top quality producer for us in the years ahead. ...

Accoyo America thinks so highly of Zamir's sire Accoyo America Kashmir, that he is restricted. Kashmir sons in the western part of the country are few and far between. Combine that with his dam, Greener Pastures Zinnia from a long line of Crescent Moon top producing dams. Zinnia is a strategic blend of Elite, Legacy, Pirelli, Bueno, Royal Fawn and Hemingway, giving Zamir a truly power packed pedigree on both the top and bottom. We are partners on Zamir with Scott and Debbie Miller of Crescent Moon Ranch, which speaks highly of Zamir in itself.

HuacayaFemale (bred)White
AOA# DOB: 8/2/20146 yrs
Crescenda was one of the first building blocks we chose when we decided to get serious about breeding high end alpacas. So far, she has given us a fabulous daughter, Sopris Elizario's Princess, who we considered a major score. She went straight into our small group of what we call our stud quality females. Crescenda produced a white male cria in 2017, by Crescent Moon's Zamir. He is only a few months old, but we find it very difficult not to be overly excited about him. We should have named him Holy Cow, because when we first looked at him, those were the words that both my wife and I said simultaneously. ...

Tonches is a robust daughter of Painted Sky's Apres Voux. She has a pleasing head and excellent substance of bone. Along with her good birthing capacity, she is an exceptional mother. Coming to us as a 9 year old female, with virtually no fleece information available for her younger days, we decided to breed her to an all around male, Greener Pastures Taka Number. This breeding resulted in Sopris Chenoa, a white female, born in 2019 (pictured) We like this kid so much, we repeated this breeding., for a June 2020 progeny. The true value of a female is in what she produces. Needless to say, we are pleased thus far....
