Angelina, one of our best females, has beautifully dense fine fleece, an incredible top-knot, a strong body and a terrific future!
Angelina, was awarded her fourth Blue Ribbon 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 four 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 females, a devoted mother 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.
Angelina has VERY strong genetics. All of her cria look exactly like her! They 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. An amazing thing to have and we are very happy to have Angelina in our herd!
Currently Angelina is due for a 2016 cria, sired by Revelation (Double Dee Revelation)!
