Lotus (Talon's Lotus of Island Alpaca)

Lotus is a very unique and special alpaca. Lotus, though still growing, produces quite a bit of fleece. Her fleece is a bright white that is very fine and soft with a beautiful tight crimp. Her sire is Magic's Talon who has won a champion and blue ribbons!

The first thing anyone ever notices about her are her beautiful and unique blue eyes. The reason Lotus is so special is because she may be deaf. If she is she doesn't let it stop her from playing and taking in her surroundings! She's gentle and curious young female.

Histogram:(click for larger view)



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 was been bred to our own CT. Estrada, a medium fawn multiple champ & blue ribbon winner.

Luna's first cria is a lovely locked, dense female, the lovely Lunette, a medium brown alpaca-- just recently awarded Champion, and two blues.   

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

Magic's Talon


Each of Talon's first offspring took either a  first place,Blue Ribbons and/or a Color Championship, to include, September, 2010 at the Big E Alpaca Show. Island Alpaca 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 Island Alpaca 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 off spring! 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. Watch for more of his cria, arriving 2011 and 2012.

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 5 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 eveness 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.
