  • Juvi Fleece

  • With Dam, Bella Notte

Bijou (Talon's Bijou of Island Alpaca)

Bijou or "Bea" is a beautiful black female with a lot of energy. Her fleece is very fine and bright. Her progeny includes the notable Snowmass Nova, and North Western genetics not easily found in the North Eastern states.

Her dam's grandsire is the famous Snowmass Nova and Bijou's sire is Magic's Talon who has won a champion and multiple blues. Talon has very strong grey genetics and there is a chance that Bijou could possibly have grey cria!

Bijou is ready to be breed and we highly suggest our Estrada's Lucca of Island Alpaca for what we would expect, an astounding cria. 


2016 Big E Alpaca Fleece Show judge Arturo Pena commented: "Good staple length and uniformity of micron."  

Fleece Score Highlights: Micron, 7 out of 8. Length, 6 out of 7. Color, 5 out of 5 possible point.

Bella Notte



Bella is an outstanding bay-black animal. Her sire the notable Andean bronze and her dam Nova's Twilight has gifted her her upright stance and undeniable presence.

Andean Bronze is that exceptional dark colored alpaca whose fiber is like velvet. With a four year histogram of 20.5, 4.0, 19.6, 2.0, he has fiber stats that surpass the vast majority of his light colored brethren. He has shown the ability to consistently pass those attributes onto his offspring, such as Bella, who have been a dominant force on the show circuit for a while now. The premier brown Herd Sire of the North American Alpaca Stud with very good reason.

Bella will be a terrific addition to any herd!
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 won first for his fleece at the Green Mountain Fall Spectacular of 2012! Judge commented, "Exhibiting good fineness, handle and character. Excellent!"
