Lunette (Lunette of Island Alpaca)

Lunette is a marvel! Fine lustrous crimp, and loads of it. She takes after he dam, with blue ribbons in hand and a color champion!

Lunette, showed and placed at the Big E, Alpaca Show. With seven alpaca in her class, she took a first place, blue-ribbon win, and color champion for browns competing along side, over 20 alpaca in total. Even more impressive, once again Lunette, was awarded the blue in the "Bred and Owned" class a most competitive class of fifteen alpaca with many white blue-ribbon winners competing. Very impressive for a brown!

Her first cria Larissa is just as beautiful as her and her amazing fleece qualities has been passed down to her gorgeous brown daughter. Larissa has amazing tight and bold crimped fleece that is very dense but also really fine.

We are really looking forward to seeing how her future cria turn out to be!

Currently Lunette is due for a 2015 cria, sired by Lucca (Estrada's Lucca of Island Alpaca)!

Dam:

Island Alpaca Luna

 

ARI#: 30443075

Heritage: Peruvian and Chilean

Color: Light Brown

Luna has beautifully dense fleece well-defined staple and a charming discernible white-striped top-knot. This gorgeous gal is a beautifully superlative manifestation of all that one would want in a female alpaca.

A blue ribbon winner at her first show she elicited the following judges comments; "a beautifully constructed female with great density for such a young animal"..."her fiber has exceptional crimp and is consistent from tail bone to head"..."the fiber is also soft and dense with a luster that jumps out at you"..."her walk is elegant and her posture is very strong and consistent with high value alpacas": clearly, Luna has it all, and with a mellow, motherly disposition to boot!

She possesses all of the fiber attributes one would expect from her famous sire, 4Peruvian Altiplano, a well recognized champion who has produced an amazing number of show winners, and whose offspring are highly sought after. His reputation for consistently producing high quality offspring is unmatched by most males. He has an amazing ability to pass on positive traits in fleece and conformation with over 90% of his offspring (or those with his lineage) placing first and second in tough local and national competitions. His cria have shown instant improvement over their dams. Even dams of the highest quality have crias that are a step up with Altiplano Gold as their mate. All the right positives to the right degree to produce the complete quality offspring. In density, coverage, architecture, and crimp, fleeces are taken to the next level. Body types are improved with heavier bone and greater "type" in style.

Luna's first cria is a lovely locked, dense female, the lovely Lunette, a medium brown alpaca who was awarded a Champion and several blues.  

Luna has proven to be an excellent mother, always pausing for her cria, incredibly attentive!


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"!
