Silver Angel (Silver Angel of Island Alpaca)

Silver Angel has won four First Place ribbons so far for 2016!

Silver Angel is one not to miss when anyone comes to visit the farm. Silver Angel, just like her sisters and brother: Angelica, Angelito, Anika, and Penelope look just like their dam Angelina, a champion and blue ribbon winner.

She's a gorgeous young alpaca with a beautifully tight crimped and very bright classic silver grey fleece. It's very fine and has great uniform! It also lacks many of the black fiber you see mixed in with grey fleece. Her fleece is absolutely beautiful!

Silver Angel, just like all of her siblings and dam, have an almost perfect phenotype! They have great conformation with a strong frame, they are thick-boned, have impressive top-knots, nice thick short muzzles, and overall a beautiful and pleasing look. Angelina seems to have very strong genetics! Her sire is Magic's Talon who has won a champion and multiple blues.

She's a very sweet and patient girl who loves to be out in the pasture and spend time with her best friend, Lotus. She's very easy to handle and is one eye-catching alpaca!

Currently Silver Angel is due for a June 2017 cria, sired by Revelation (Double Dee Revelation)!

Dam:

Island Alpaca Angelina

ARI#: 30863095

Heritage: Peruvian

Color: Beige

Angelina has beautifully dense fine fleece, an incredible top-knot, a strong body and a terrific future.

 

Angelina, was awarded her fifth blue ribbon. Angelina, at the Empire Fleece event, topped even MFI Astovine, who took a R. Championship at the AOBA Fleece show! Judge Cheryl  R. Gehly commented that it is "Very fine, soft, and uniform" giving it an 18.5 out of 20 possible points for fineness and handle. 

 

Angelina sheared 5-1/2 pounds of fleece at less than one year of age. This was 6% of her body weight at the time of her shearing, and is very impressive when you consider that a typical alpaca shears under 4 percent of fleece in a full year of growth.

 

With a sweet and gentle disposition, and her good looks, Angelina also has outstanding heritage; Her sire, prestigious  4Peruvian Altiplano, is an import from the Sollocata region of Peru and has produced an amazing number of show winners, Angelina included! (She was not shown prior to this, we could have expected a lot more!)


Her dam, Desni, is considered one of our best foundation females, a devoted mother, which we can expect for Angelina, and is a blue-ribbon winner herself for "Get of Dam" in 2007.


For Angelina's spring breeding 2009, we partnered her with Maple Brook's Angelo (ARI#: 833149). Angelo combines the genetics of two of the most recognized Accoyo herdsires in the country, Caligula and Felix, along with the finest and most notable Allianza male in the country, Hemingway. At 15.9 micron at 8 months of age Angelo held his fineness density handle and coverage, and was awarded the well deserved Championship at the Big E in the Fall of 2003. Angelo's fiber won a blue ribbon, best brightness, champion and JUDGE'S CHOICE at the 2004 Empire Extravaganza.


Angelina gave birth in June, 2010 to a truly gorgeous little boy, Angelito. He carries on his dam and sire's angelic tradition, and has himself ribboned in competitive classes.


Sire:

Magic's Talon

ARI#: 30321649

Heritage: Full Chilean

Color: Medium Silver Grey

Each of Talon's first offspring took either a first place, Blue Ribbon and/or a Color Championship, to include September, 2010 at the Big E Alpaca Show. Lunette, (Seven alpaca in her class) took a first-place blue ribbon, and even more outstanding, a color champion banner for all browns with over twenty alpaca in total. Once again, Lunette took the blue in the "Bred and Owned" class, showing in a class of fifteen -up against the best of the best, including white blue ribbon winners! Very, very impressive for a brown! Talon's Purl, another offspring from 2009, took a blue, first place win, in her class of grey yearlings. 

Kudo's to Talon-with award-winning fiber that is just outstanding - which we know now, he passes along to his offspring! It's incredibly dense, with amazing character and high-frequency, tight, even crimp (from skin to his tips), fineness and luster! Add to that an absolutely even in color, spot-free blanket. Talon is the picture-perfect grey.

Talon, at the Alpaca Festival of Oregon, 2010, took the Reserve Color Championship for his fleece, with 16 alpaca in the competition, ten juvi's and yearlings included. Talon was the oldest with the exception of one competitor. Impressive for five years of age! Show results found here.

Amanda VandenBosch judging, gave him a 19 out of a 20 point score for fineness and handle, commenting "good evenness on fleece!" An amazing win = amazing fleece = amazing herd sire!

At another competition, Judge Wade Gease placed him third and added that the three top placing males all were quite even (First place winner was A.L Paca's Revolution) and that he actually preferred Talon's fleece. Talon placed third due to his adult teeth coming in, and Judge Gease said that with males so close he had to start to look for things in order to place them. 
Judge after judge comment on his build, and very even crimpy fleece! With Colorado genetics, and 12 grey's in his ARI, he's will likely add some great quality to your grey or colored breeding program!
 
Talon has one of the nicest personalities of an adult male alpaca. He's a true public relations Champ, very social with the staff, and many of our visitors.
 
Talon won first for his fleece at the Green Mountain Fall Spectacular of 2012! Judge commented, "Exhibiting good fineness, handle and character. Excellent!"
 
We are currently continuing to offer a low introductory breeding fee. Meet this future "Get-of-Sire Winner"!
