4-Sight's Finding Dory

Gorgeous Lovebug!

4-Sight's Finding Dory

HuacayaFemaleTrue Black
AOA# DOB: 6/16/20164 yrs
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. Both parents are so beautiful that any cria they produce will be amazing. We love our Dory! Dory's fleece won second place at the 2018 Nevada County Fair! Judge's remarks i...

DOB: 8/20/20155 yrs
Just got skin biopsy report back TZ is the densest alpaca ever tested by Alpaca Consulting USA at a whopping 110/mm!!! Comments include: "This is an exceptional set of numbers by any standards!" His sire, fawn-gray, Snowmass Divine Love, is almost lavender in color. We can't wait to cross this boy with our grays! His major presence and his luxurious fluffy head sets him apart from the rest! He is eye-catching and gorgeous! He attracts attention even as he hangs out in the paddock with the other stunning award-winning herdsires. An exemplary pedigree! Beautiful phenotype! Nice show record! We Love him! Keep an eye on his 2019-2020 crias on the way, beginning in the Fall! They are ...

Exactly What I Wanted!

ATC Accoyo Ever After by Torbio

SuriFemaleMedium Fawn
AOA# DOB: 7/11/200713 yrs
When Ever first arrived at Heart & Soul to be bred, I thought, "Wow! That's exactly what I want to breed for!" She is tall, sturdy, compact, and has an amazing head and beautiful color. She is also grandmother to a female I have always admired on the ranch named Ann's Promise. Her son Cloud Warrior, Ann's sire, is a gorgeous herdsire. S.H.I.P. Classified in 2018. Other offspring include: Her clone El Dorado Accoyo Forever More

SuriHerdsire (Male)Medium Fawn

We are thrilled and honored to be hosting Piccard at our ranch! Carefully bred and selected by Aero Ranch, this male has EVERYTHING we are looking for in our breeding program! Incredible, uniform fleece with a hand to die for, and phenotypically correct in every way! Piccard is sired by the legendary PPerucian Inca. Exhibiting a classic luscious fleece style he also produces color! Selectively bred, Piccard has produced many blue ribbon winning offspring! We believed this male would take our suri program to the next level and that is exactly what he is doing, just look at his offspring! Piccard is closed to outside breedings! His locks are stunning!

Ariel Angel Dreams

Beautiful, Maternal!

Ariel Angel Dreams

SuriFemale (bred)Dark Brown, True Black
AOA# DOB: 7/18/20137 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...
WAP Man-O-War by Maserati

1/2 interest

WAP Man-O-War by Maserati

SuriHerdsire (Male)Medium Brown
ARI# AOA# 32081626   DOB: 7/28/201010 yrs
Named after the legendary race horse of the early 20th century, we believe OUR Man-O-War is destined for greatness, too! Combining the unparalleled genetics of Torbio and Bruxo (both deceased) this young male has all the qualities we look for in a suri herdsire - Presence, luster, suri phenotype, density, lock structure, and genetics. Man-O-War sheared nearly 9 lbs. of fiber at less than 2 years of age with a micron of 27.5. The judges have consistantly placed him in the top half of his class and have commented on his luster and density. His first cria, Calista, garnered top award of Judge's Choice at the CABA Classic 2017 show as a juvenile!! Judges routinely commented on her long st...
