Mocha's Afternoon Delight by L Peruvian Lipton

Destined for lingering fineness

Mocha's Afternoon Delight by L Peruvian Lipton

HuacayaFemaleLight Brown
AOA# DOB: 3/9/20147 yrs
Delight garnered a color championship in her first show at just 7 months old. The highlights from the judge's comments are:"All Around Package", incredibly fine, soft and dense uniform fleece, consistent crimp architecture from front to back. She then went on to receive a first place and reserve color championship in her next show. Delight's sire, L Peruvian Lipton is the full Peruvian sire of 8 time Multi Champion gray male Shazam and Pacifida's D'Peruvian Dune Master. He is a gorgeous light fawn male, still producing incredible cria and color champions! Delight's dam, Latte's Mocha Twist, comes from the impressive line of our Grand Dam Paradise Ridge Chaccuna known for impressive ...

Diego has a great personality, beautiful head style and incredible fleece. HIs fleece characteristics reflect a very bright fleece that parts evenly with a lovely crimp style. He has very few primaries (one in two fleece samples). Diego carries his beautiful crimp style and expression from tip to skin and carries it into his shoulder as well. Conformationally, Diego has a good bite and substance of bone, good tail bone, a nice top line and straight legs. This animal is conformationaly correct in every way. Take a look at this Histogram! This young male took first and CC at ABI/WAC walking fleece. The judge stated she wanted a scarf made from his fleece!! First and CC at Alpacapalooza Hal...

AOA# DOB: 9/3/20164 yrs
Georgia O'Keefe is indeed fine. You would expect her to be given her parentage after inspection of their credentials. If you are not familiar with RR Arturo, check out his link. He is an exceptional male with outstanding metrics supporting his consistent, quality production. His offspring have bannered in just about every color including his only other tux grey offspring; RR Greystone. How good is Greystone? Good enough to make our "top dog" Dizzy Gillespie settle for a Reserve Championship at the California Classic! Mom is none other than Snowmass Braveheart's Charm who graced our herd with some of the best greys and blacks (none with dilution) who brought home the banners, RR...

Rare Gem Privateer's First Mate

HuacayaHerdsire (Male)Light Rose Grey
ARI# AOA# 35365808   DOB: 9/18/20173 yrs
Banner Winning Boy! First Mate is a handsome male with a beautiful phenotype. He is conformationally correct on a solid frame and has a perfect bite. His fleece is light rose grey with a well defined structure that is uniform throughout. He sports a solid blanket that is extremely bright, dense and fine with a high frequency crimp style. At his first show he took CC in both halter and walking fleece in a class of 32. Lasting fineness in his genes. First Mates manner is mild, just like his sire's. Always a pleasure. He is a natural breeder and has already settled his first girls for Fall 2020 arrivals. ...

Arturo has passed his exceptional fiber traits to Frida Kahlo and Teodora was more than up to the task. Frida is a stunner...compact, square balanced, typey, and oooh that fleece. Keep an eye on her....

Contact Julie to arrange breeding or multiple breeding discounts at Byjules67@gmail.com We are thrilled by the production of RR Rose La Reina, Dizzy Gillespie's mom who produced the 2 densest females biopsied through Ian Watt, as of oct 2015. The icing was on the cake with the coming of Dizzy Gillespie who has a superior phenotype in solid rose grey, with fleece "to die for". He is the 2017 AOA National Fleece blue ribbon grey, both rose and silver combined. He also has excellent follicle density testing by skin biopsy: Follicle density: 61.8/cm2 S/P ratio: 10.8:1 Mean primary follicle diameter (in skin): 26.8 SD 3.6 Mean secondary follicle diameter (...
