Here is the Queen of Delphi - Our Amelia Braveheart. Born here at Delphi, she is a gorgeous solid red maroon daughter of a full Bolivian Black dam, and the late Silas of Bolivia. She has incredible handle, and very little apparent guard hair. Amelia produced a gorgeous fawn male; plus Blue ribbon winning, maroon, Phineas, from breedings to Penumbra. She has given us two Champion rose gray girls from her breedings to Avatar: National Champion Devamani, and multi-champion Ava. In 2007 she and Avatar gave us Ravi - a solid maroon Blue Ribbon winner that just tested below 16 microns AFD on his second shearing! Ravi is now a working herd sire at High Peaks & Ausable farms in NY. In 2008 Amelia and Avatar gave us Alice - another beautiful solid Maroon that was awarded Reserve Champion at her first show - and a blue ribbon at GWAS. Bred again to Avatar - her August 2009 cria is finally here - Delphi's Delia - a gorgeous maroon girl to add to our show string!

Delphi Alpacas invites you to imagine the possibilities . . . . We added a page to our DelphiAlpacas.com web page to celebrate Avatar's super star crias, please visit! Also see his kids' fleece pictures there. Avatar is prepotent for rare fleece quality - and we are so thrilled with his kids!
Avatar has wonderful crimpy, dense, and fine fleece, but what truly separates him from the other outstanding herd sires is his phenomenal handle - due only in part to the exceptional uniformity of his fleece. Cameron Holt, AOBA Senior Judge Trainer and world wide fiber expert, gave the following scores to Avatar's fleece: Fineness: 15 out of 15 ; Handle: 5 out of 5 ; Uniformity of micron: 7 out of 8 ; Crimp: 8.5 out of 10 ; Density: 3 out of 5 ; Brightness: 8 out of 10 ; Lack of medullation: 8 out of 10. (Scores are given without regard to color).
Avatar's crias include Futurity and AOBA National Champions, several National Fleece Champions, and numerous Multi-Cha
Full sister to AOBA National Color Champ Devamani, Multi-champ Ava, Champion Alice, & Blue ribbon Ravi of the incredibly fine fleece . . .
Delia is gorgeous! Soooooo fine, a handle to die for, Very little guard hair, and she Knows She is the Heir to the Throne. Flawless conformation, type and presence too.
Look at the uniformity and greater than 30 on her fleece stats!
These super soft Avatar girls that have given us our foundation. Delia is entirely too spoiled to sell - we have ruined her for anybody else! But we are listing our foundation girls for a limited time. I will be bawling if this girl leaves - she has my heart.
Her 38 Special son (SOLD) has luster like the best of suris - I've never seen anything just like it. His grandpa Avatar is known for high luster fleece - as is his dad 38 Special. This guy shimmers. And the softest handle imaginable. He was sold and is being exported to Canada and then on to Europe!
We couldn't resist it - we repeated the breeding and Delia gave us a stunning "mini-me" glowing brown daughter with beautiful curls. Delia was not bred last fall - we chose to wait and breed her for an earlier season delivery next summer.
Delia's price of $6,250 allows for payments with $1500 down and 12 months payments. Or choose 20% off for a cash purchase of $5,000. Includes a breeding to Zeppelin or Golden Legend.
Awards Received 2nd Place TxOLAN 2010 - at 6 months and one day old. The Blue ribbon winner? Her sister Darby! (daughter of Avatar and Darcy). Congratulations to Darby's new owners, Windmill Haven Alpacas of Texas.
