AOA# DOB: 6/12/20127 yrs
Brokered for Absaroka Alpacas in Brighton, Colorado! In March 2013, Catalina kicked off her show career in Texas with a shiny blue ribbon! Her fleece is gorgeous - shiny, well organized and crimpy with a lovely handle. Catalina began her halter show career with a blue and retired with a blue! She matured into a large, well grown, female with excellent density, good organization and fineness. On May 27, 2015, Catalina earned her way into our foundation herd with a gorgeous white female cria, Absaroka Carolina La Belle, sired by Sunset Hills Golden Thunder. Both dam and sire have excellent EPDs so this should be an impressive gal when she grows up! She is certainly beautiful! In J...

AOA# DOB: 5/16/20145 yrs
Brokered for Mule Train Alpaca Ranch in Molt, Montana! I also work with this girl because she is from and is currently boarded at Heart & Soul in Penn Valley. Cute as a button and the spitting image of her gray sire. Only shown twice she stood at the top of the light fawn class both times until the judge noticed her in consistency in color and bumped her to 2nd. that color is GRAY! Out of a dam with GRAY (Snowmass Peruvian Casanova) in her pedigree and sired by solid tuxedo GRAY 4-Sight's Applause we are most certain that Monique IS GRAY and will produce GRAY! and she has!!!

Follicle Density of 76mm!

A Paca Fun's Sonic Shift

HuacayaMaleMedium Silver Grey
ARI# AOA# 32703719   DOB: 9/17/20145 yrs
76 mm follicle density 9.3:1 SP Ratio The densest gray ever tested by Alpaca Consulting as of 2017!! This boy is our "Game Changer" in our breeding program. If you were color blind his fleece could compete with even the nicest white. Very uniform in color with a hand to die for. And style? did you say style!!! His staple has been an issue in management as his fleece is so long by show season that it is drapey. This male is here for the long haul in our breeding program and possibly touts the best gray genetics on the west coast. He is perfect in his conformation, his histogram touts excellent fineness and uniformity. His silver gray color is deep and rich. His phenotype is everythi...

Dupioni's Vintage Troubadour

HuacayaMaleWhite
ARI# AOA# 1378047   DOB: 11/16/200910 yrs
We first showed Troubadour in 2013 at the age of 5. We were so happy that the judges could see what an outstanding male he was. He is still holding that beautiful architecture. he is maintaining that beautiful high frequency crimp with the density and fineness for his age at 24 micron. In 2016, I did histograms on all of his cria's that were her. They were from 13.9 to 18.1. Troubadour is throwing that low micron. He also is giving his cria excellent fleece coverage and That Head! Troubadour has a pleasant laid back personality which his cria's seem to have also. I cannot say enough about using this male in your breeding program. ...

Dory is a stunning big girl with a heavy true black fleece, beautiful conformation, and a curious, affectionate personality! She stands out to ranch visitors because of her approachable, friendly nature and the spot of gray on her tail. Her dam is the matriarch of Heart & Soul and her half siblings include superstar 4-Sight's Applause and the knock-out 4-Sight's Stallone. Good thing Dory loves crias, because she has just been bred to a gorgeous guy! We are thrilled to anticipate the first Summer Hill cria.

Beautiful, Maternal!

Ariel Angel Dreams

SuriFemaleDark Brown, True Black
AOA# DOB: 7/18/20136 yrs
Ariel is a beautiful mahogany shade that reminds me of black cherries! I am so thrilled to use her fiber. She also happens to be a reserve champion with EDP scores in the top 5% and 10%! She gave birth with ease and without help. Her daughter Khaleesi is elegant and stunning with a striking presence. It's impossible to take a bad photo of her. She's an appaloosa with incredible luster and she has hit the show scene! On October 17th 2019, Ariel and her daughter Khaleesi gave birth on the same day! Ariel has a brown female who looks a lot like her, and Khaleesi had a male that looks just like her -- appaloosa and all! Ariel gave birth quickly and easily (and early) this time as wel...

Sir Oliver Twist of WAP

SuriMaleMedium Fawn
ARI# AOA# 35139218   DOB: 9/12/20154 yrs
The first time I saw Oliver I knew I had to have him! Convincing Wings & a Prayer to share him with me, I purchased 1/2 interest in him just prior to the Futurity in 2016. Oliver is the 2nd pairing of the same dam and sire and proof in those genetics. His full sister Olivia De Hav-a -Lock of WAP blew the socks off the show world in 2015 taking the judges choice award at both The Futurity and GWAS as a juvi, two of the most competitive shows in the country! She then went on to be Reserve Champion at the Futurity in 2017!! These are very hard footsteps for her little brother to follow in... But Oliver has nailed it!! Also a 2 X judges choice winner at GWAS and CABA as well as taking 10 ...

Absaroka Alpacas | Nice Crias! Bred!

PacaParadise Jaytee

HuacayaFemale (bred)White
AOA# DOB: 6/8/20127 yrs
Jaytee was purchased by us for her genetics, which are not common to this area, her sire's EPDs and the breeding to Tronador (see J'Adore). Now that J'Adore is weaned, Jaytee has been added to our sales list. Jaytee is calm & curious but standoffish. Her cria is probably the most friendly with humans that we've ever had!...
