Spock (Spock of Island Alpaca)

Spock is a handsome bay black young alpaca who's fleece is very bright and fine with a bold crimp. He's a very sweet boy who is very curious of his surroundings.

He looks so much like his dam, Nova's Twilight, but he has his sire, Magic's Talon, personality and stature. Talon has won a champion and multiple blues, and with his dam's grandsire being the famous Snowmass Nova he has some amazing genetics going on.

There's a chance that Spock could produce grey cria!

LINEAGE RECORDS:
Dam:

Nova's Twilight

 

ARI#: 851112

Heritage: Peruvian and Chilean

Color: Bay Black

Twilight is a presence on the pasture, very big-boned, and statuesque.

Her lineage leaves little to be desired, Sired by Snowmass Nova and Shadz of Midnight.

She is an attentive mother, a terrific milker, and has given us beautiful, healthy cria without event. Each one was over 18 pounds at birth with very strong IgG levels.

Her maternal, half-sister, Snowmass Midnight's Gold had a cria that was the highest selling maiden female in the world, for its time in the last ten years.


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 won first for his fleece at the Green Mountain Fall Spectacular of 2012! Judge commented, "Exhibiting good fineness, handle and character. Excellent!"
