Island Alpaca Angelina
Angelina has beautifully dense fine fleece, an incredible top-knot, a strong body and a terrific future.
Angelina, was awarded her fifth blue ribbon.
Angelina, at the Empire Fleece event, topped even MFI Astovine, who
took a R. Championship at the AOBA Fleece show! Judge Cheryl R. Gehly
commented that it is "Very fine, soft, and uniform" giving it an 18.5
out of 20 possible points for fineness and handle.
Angelina sheared 5-1/2 pounds of fleece at less than one year of age. This
was 6% of her body weight at the time of her shearing, and is very
impressive when you consider that a typical alpaca shears under 4
percent of fleece in a full year of growth.
With a sweet and gentle disposition, and her good looks, Angelina also has outstanding heritage; Her sire, prestigious 4Peruvian Altiplano,
is an import from the Sollocata region of Peru and has produced an
amazing number of show winners, Angelina included! (She was not shown
prior to this, we could have expected a lot more!)
Her dam, Desni,
is considered one of our best foundation females, a devoted mother,
which we can expect for Angelina, and is a blue-ribbon winner herself
for "Get of Dam" in 2007.
For Angelina's spring breeding 2009, we partnered her with Maple Brook's Angelo
(ARI#: 833149). Angelo combines the genetics of two of the most
recognized Accoyo herdsires in the country, Caligula and Felix, along
with the finest and most notable Allianza male in the country,
Hemingway. At 15.9 micron at 8 months of age Angelo held his fineness
density handle and coverage, and was awarded the well deserved
Championship at the Big E in the Fall of 2003. Angelo's fiber won a blue
ribbon, best brightness, champion and JUDGE'S CHOICE at the 2004 Empire
Angelina gave birth in June, 2010 to a truly gorgeous little boy, Angelito. He carries on his dam and sire's angelic tradition, and has himself ribboned in competitive classes.
Island Alpaca I-Star's Dom Perignon
Color: Dark Fawn
Dom Perignon was awarded a blue ribbon at the 2009 Empire Extravagnza show in New York and ribboned 2nd Place at the 2008 New England Coast Classic in very impressive class of 9, and again, a second at the 2008 Empire Extravaganza. At the 2009 New England Coastal
Classic Show, the judge commented on how Dom had the finest fleece in
the class! Fiber sample (August 2008) reveals the same fiber diameter..
the exact same, 17.7 = Super fine!
With a perfect disposition, Dom is very easy to handle, likely one of the most "hugable" in the herd.
