Ariana (Madigan's Ariana of Island Alpaca)

Ariana has done it again...at the VAOBA Expo Spin-Off in 2014 Ariana won a special ribbon for the Highest Scoring Fleece in her color group! AGAIN Ariana has won the Highest Scoring Fleece in her color group at the VAOBA Expo Spin-Off for 2015 and she won First Place! Amazing! Ariana also won First Place at the TxOLAN Alpaca Spectacular Spin-Off in 2015.

Ariana is a large female with beautiful dark fawn fleece with a grey face. Ariana enjoys spending time with her dam and her most noticeable characteristic is her fleece which has prized luster that is dense with a bold crimp and an incredible staple length!

She's one of the biggest alpaca we have on the farm and we love her gentle disposition. Her sire is QR Madigan, a true black male who has won champions and blues. Her dam Arias' sire is the famous multiple champion CCNF Archangel. Ariana has a great lineage!

Ariana is ready to breed! We suggest our Double Dee Revelation for what we would expect, an astounding cria.

LINEAGE RECORDS:
Dam:

Arias


ARI#: 30687684

Heritage: Peruvian and Chilean

Color: Medium Fawn

Arias has fine fiber with a very lustrous crimp, a perfect bite and conformation. Her sire, the multiple champion CCNF Archangel, is a legend in his time. He has won over eight national championships, and is considered "the complete package" by many. (As of 2008 Archangel is no longer be offered for inside OR outside breeding).


Her dam Snowmass Midnight's Gold has also produced show-stoppers. (Her first daughter was the highest paid maiden alpaca in the world, at that time, selling for $100,000 at auction). Truly amazing!

Arias was bred to CCNF Royal Odin, son of Royal Rose, and grandson of the world famous, Peruvian Hemingway, G171 revealing a beautiful summer 2009 cria, a male, named Orion. Arias herself has Peruvian Hemingway as her great grand-sire. This has resulted in a wonderful offspring given this genetic connection.

Orion's sire, CCNF Royal Odin received the Blue at Big "E" then turned around and was awarded the Blue and Reserve Color Champion at the Coastal Classic. As if that weren't enough he received another Blue in the Fawn category at the fleece competition! Odin was awarded the Blue at Empire and Second at the highly competitive Green Mountain Show in Vermont.
Sire:

Quarry Ridge Madigan

Madigan has correct conformation, with strong bone and an excellent bite. His very dense, black fiber is silky, and buttery soft with a fine, high-frequency crimp. Madigan is extremely friendly and his curly face attracts the attention of many farm visitors. Judge Wade Gease has commented on how wonderful his crimp style was.. from the tips of the staple all the way down!

He is a true black, out of a Canadian dam and the 2004 AOBA Reserve Black Champion. His paternal grand sire is the renowned Black Shadow and his dam was Reserve Champion at the Empire Extravaganza the only time she was shown.
