Comet (Island Alpaca Galaxy's Comet)

Comet is a dashing young guy - No surprise with his outstanding lineage. With Super Nova on his Sire Galaxy's side and Royal Rose/Hemmingway on his dams side. He has the most beautiful lustrous fleece. His total staple length for such a young animal is truly amazing! He has bold crimp, and soft handle, with terrific staple formation.

At the recent 2008 MAPACA show, Judge Tim Lavan commented on his remarkable staple length, luster and brightness, and "great" bite. He (The staple length, we believe to be over 6 inches--less than a full years growth!)

Again at MAPACA, Comet helped us achieve a fourth place ribbon in "Breeders Best of Three" in a very competitive class.

LINEAGE RECORDS:
Dam:

Snowmass Tranquility

ARI#:836146 Medium Fawn, Mixed Heritages

Tranquility is a terrific alpaca in her own right; she reveals not only conformational but fleece qualities that one would seek in a solid foundation female. Add to this her wonderful history of top notch production and you have an enticing package to consider!

Her lineage is terrific too; Tranquility is a Snowmass Royal Rose daughter, known by many as "the maker of champions who makes champions": See her sires impressive resume!

Tranquility is a terrific mom.. the most conscientious of all dams here at Island Alpaca. She is the most watchful and nurturing to her cria.

We are not excited to sell her, as she has produced some marvelous offspring. We have two beautiful cria at the farm, Frida and Calvin, that will remain in our herd, carrying on her terrific genetics.

Sire:

CCNF Galaxy

White 1154900 --Mixed Heritages-- His sire CCNF Galaxy won the FIRST for WHITE fleece in a competitive class at the 2006 Empire Extravaganza, and took a reserve championship at the NECC 2005, for White Male, and first place for yearling white male.
