Peruvian Xtra Special Missy
Medium Fawn, 839162, Full Peruvian
Our Xtra Special Missy" is the daughter of "Missy", the dam to two time color champion, Peruvian Kodiak. Her sire is the infamous Peruvian Black Magic.
We are only willing to part with Xra Special Missy because we currently have two of her daughters here on our farm. She is a beautiful alpaca whose fleece is still soft and crimpy. She is an excellent mom and a sweet alpaca.
Xtra Special Missy is bred to our full Peruvian true black reserve color champ, The Scotsman. Since Missy's sire, Black Magic, is also an award winning black, we are hoping for a black cria from this pairing.
UPDATE - we got it! Missy delivered a gorgeous, solid, true black full Peruvian girl out of Scotty! We couldn't be more pleased. Marnia's cria fleece is beautiful - dense, crimpy, soft and blacker than black!
We've rebred Missy to Peruvian Silver Bullet for a summer 2009 cria. Silver Bullet is a dark silver grey blue ribbon boy. This should be another spectacular cri
Reserve Color Champion, 4 Time Blue Ribbon Winner, Solid True Black, Full Peruvian, Son of AOBA National Conference Reserve Color Champion, More than 10 ribbons to his name. Sure, we're proud to add this guy to our herd sire line up!
Scotty is proudly co-owned with Highland Alpaca. We are sharing in the glory of this beautiful animal & the offspring he produces. Scotty's 1st cria has arrived, & we are all impressed. She's a gorgeous rose grey out of a white Alianza dam. At only 3 years of age, Scotty has proven that not only is he of exceptional quality, but that the can produce offspring that are exceptional as well.
We love the rich, wonderful array of colors that alpacas come in. We want a rainbow of natural colors grazing in our fields. We don't, however, want to sacrifice the soft, fine fleece that is so often associated with the lightest colored alpacas. Here too, Scotty has what it takes. Even at 2 years of age, after he started breeding, his micron count is o
Marnia is now a two time champion! Her fiber stats provide the science behind the success - AFD of only 19.4 is pretty darn soft, especially for a black!
Marnia is exactly what we were hoping for when we paired our true black reserve color champion, Peruvian The Scotsman, with our fawn full Peruvian girl, Xtra Special Missy. Missy's sire is the infamous Black Magic so we knew she covered black. We've just been waiting for her to produce a black cria. Then along came Marnia, and boy, are we impressed!
Marnia has amazing fiber - a high frequency, consistent crimp throughout her blanket, neck, legs and tail. Her fiber is soft and dense. All of this in true black. It's a dream come true! Marnia's conformation is also right on. She's straight, solid and strong with an excellent bite.
The quality of her fiber and her form is no happen-chance. Marnia's sire is reserve color champion, Peruvian The Scotsman who also boasts four blue ribbons. Her dam is Xtra Special Missy, daughter of Black Magic, maternal granddaughter of Peruvian Jaxon and daughter of Peruvian Melissa, the dam to multiple color champion, Kodiak.
To top it all off, Marnia is a sweet girl with a very friendly disposition.
Since Accoyo Invasion had his first two black cria this spring, we decided to breed Marnia to him. This cria will be full Peruvian, half Accoyo, perhaps black and the cria's dam and sire are both multiple champions. UPDATE - check out Marnia's 2011 cria out of Invasion! He's beautiful, and he's a MODERN DARK SILVER GREY!
Almost without exception, all of the black cria fathered by Accoyo Stratosphere have gone on to become champions so although we love the boy Marnia produced with Invasion, we have bred her to Strat for her 2013 cria.
Here's what the judges have to say about Marnia's fleece:
"Good crimp style & density" - Diana Timmerman
"Lovely hand - excellent brightness!" Cheryl Gehly
