Purl (Talon's Purl of Island Alpaca)

Purl won the blue for the National Champions' Alpaca Fleece Show and the VAOBA Alpaca Expo Spin-Off in 2013! Purl also won the blue at the Big E in 2010!

Purl is one to watch! A beautiful grey Purl is with her tremendously fine, bright fleece and quality conformation, we look forward to watching her grow!

With the strong background of her dam Margeaux's genetics, in addition to her sire Magic's Talon's substantial bone and excellent conformation we can only predict that she will be one fabulous alpaca.

Her sire is a proud, erect male with just beautiful lines to him, a trait that we can already see in Purl. Talon is the picture perfect grey with a spot-free blanket, and Purl, a tuxedo patterned grey, is almost spot free.

Judge commented on her fleece from Alpacapalooza 2013: "Minimal amount of fleece lost in production. Nice brightness!"

Currently Purl is due for a 2015 cria, sired by Estrada (CT Estrada)!

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"!
