Island Alpaca Luna
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!
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.
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
