Ave Maria is as close to a Vicuña as many will ever get. It is not only the Vicuña coloring -- it is the extremely fine fleece and the fiber quality that puts here in the same group as her finer cousin - The Vicuña.
Ave has minimal guard hair and low micron count to her super fine fleece with high frequency crimp. You will find this same consistency right down into her belly.
Ave's Grand Sire is Accoyo Royal Fawn (sold for over $600,000.00 at 10 years of age) and her Sire is Accoyo Royal Avenger (sold for $473,000.00). This girl has the genetics to produce Champion after Champion.
Tachon is a Full Accoyo who brings top genetics to your breeding program. His fleece offers uniform and well defined character, density, and deep crimp. The sample pictured is at 5 years of age and still displays these fine qualities. Tachon is a son of Accoyo Vengador who recently sold at the Parade of Champions Sale for over $102,000.00.
Tachon's Maternal brother - "Accoyo Michelangelo" recently sold for $89,000 at 11 months old!!
Tachon is a nice size boy with wonderful presence, big bone, and a great head. To top things off, he has three large brown/fawn spots on his side and black pigment around his eyes and mouth.
The pairing of Accoyo Vengador (was owned by Greg Mecklem at Accoyo America) x Accoyo Ayaviri (owned by Greg's Brother) created Accoyo Tachon for Greg's brother. The match was perfect, but Greg's brother is all set with males, so we were fortunate enough to scoop up Tachon for our breeding program.
