My first alpaca and still my best producer. Based on her track record she is one of the best granddams in the country. Her offspring are outstanding and have been called "irreplaceable" and she can put up to a full pound per day on her newborns! She's average size, has always been healthy, breeds and births easily; her cria's 24 hr. IgG's are off the charts (3000+) and they wean at 75-85+ pounds at 6 months. She consistently passes on her correct phenotype, solid build, bone size, balanced proportions, fleece quality and coverage, and a perfect bite (never trimmed). '99 cria: DB male, 16 m, blue ribbon (Krieger), class of 8. '01 cria, Snowy Truffles (sired by 4P Locota), had a 48 hr IgG 3600, placed 4th in a large, juv. W female class at Alpacapalooza 02 (Krieger)and was the highest selling W huacaya maiden (out of 4) at the Star Events 01 auction (no Accoyo in her). '02: Constantino (sire: 4P Locota)- 04 Alpacapalooza fawn color champion. IgG > 3400 and a 19 mn/17 cv f

Micron Count 2011: February: 19.3 / 4.8 / 24.8 / 3.4 - 5 mos. old. Note: 16m, 17m, and 18m are the highest bars on the graph. Mar. 2012: 7 full crimps per inch. 2012: March: 19.8 / 4.6 / 23.5 / 3.1 - YES! She's becoming more uniformly fine like her dam and is holding her micron like her sire on a normal diet with alfalfa. 15m to 21m are the highest bars on the graph which means her distribution trends toward the lower microns.
2012 AOBA Auction - SOLD. Thank you Nancy Chappell, Alpaca Country Estates. Great news! Silvie has been bred to .38 Special son, U.S. Steel!
Silvie is so smart. At the auction, with people constantly coming into the pen, she moved into position automatically for people to see her fleece.
From our foundation herd. Gray breeders have commmented that she is a beautiful female with a beautiful fleece. Her fleece exhibits excellent character tail to ears...fineness, crimpy primaries, color, density, brightness, long staple, a soft handle and an absence visible guard hair. She always runs to greet me, is very smart and sweet and she likes to be with people.
Yocum-McColl told me that her fleece is a rare, true (pigmented) gray and very nice, long, fine and silky.
Her paternal sister, Reyna (MSG @ 15.6 m), placed first at Alpacapalooza '12 and is also in the AOBA auction. They are Fox's two best gray daughters so far.
Her sire, Snowmass RRoyal Fox (2010 AOBA Gray Composite Champion), is from Snowmass' Royal Bronze and Casanova bloodlines. He's a full Peruvian with '98 imported true black and maroon granddams, so he's unrelated to all other gray bloodlines!
Silvie's dam was a multiple champion and blue ribbon producer. Her third fleece earned a blue ribbon winner over a Futurity champion male in 2000 (judge: J. Skinner). She was the best daughter of P. Andrajo (Alianza sire of Mr. Roosevelt who sired Crescent Moon's Donato) and consistently put 3/4 to 1 pound / day on her crias with high IgGs (2000-3000+). Silvie was her dam's 12th cria.
Her 3/4 maternal sister is Carmelina, a Res. Champ. Her maternal brother is Constantino, our Champion who won blue and purples for 5 years and produced our Casimiro, a TB Res. Champ. - 18 m / 3.0 sd / 16.7 cv.
Her pedigree is consistent for maintaining phenotype, quality fleece and fineness beyond five years.
Paternal Brother, Graphite - 1st Futurity 2012!
Paternal Sister, Reyna - 1st Alpacapalooza 2012!
Awards Received Alpacapalooza 2012 - 4th fleece. I entered this fleece even though the cria tips were intact and it was hammered by all the rains and it didn't get a chance to fluff out by shearing day. Her 2012 tui fleece is also show quality.
