With a GREY sire and a DARK BROWN spot on her neck (which she has never passed on to her white crias sired by our white males), she belongs in a COLOR breeding program. Her eyes are dark. Sunflower has produced amazing white crias for us. Can you imagine the quality she would give you when bred to your favorite COLOR male?!
Good foundation females, like PPP Salutation and her daughter Sunflower, are few and far between. Only now that we have daughters of both Sunflower and her dam (sired by white males, which fits ourprogram), can we let this big beautiful girl go.
Sire - 5Peruvian Granite was well known just a short time ago. In the 2007 Show Summaries, he ranked #1 among GREY 'Top Sires of the Top Dams', (the equivalent to broodmare sires in horses). In other words, his daughters produced more successful show winners than any other grey male.
Dam - PPP Salutation is an amazing female. Dense, fine, BRIGHT, with a silk-like handle, and an exceptionall

Liberty is a son of Accoyo Franklin out of our classic Alianza dam NWA Ltd. Louise. He has a very typical Alianza/Accoyo look and fleece character. Talk about small bundles and high frequency crimp! Better photos will go up when the weather changes. Come and check him out. Better still, look at the the offspring he has produced.
We have results of skin biopsies on Liberty sent to both Dr. Evans and Dr. Watts. They show unbelievably good results, better I am willing to bet than any male for sale in the US today. Let me know if you can find a white male for sale with better biopsy results than his. I publish them here with hesitation as some readers may think they are exaggerated!
Liberty had skin biopsies evaluated by both Dr. Norm Evans and Dr. Jim Watts ====Follicles per sq. mm==S/P Ratio= Watts....... 70.7 .............. 11.2 Evans....... 99.0 ............. 12.9
The micron count of his PRIMARY fibers was only 22 microns. Secondary fibers averaged

A beautiful pure Peruvian female with the potential to be bred for color - or for elite white: your choice.
Three of her sire's grandparents have color fleeces, and her dam is sired by a SILVER GREY. The combination of elite, incredibly dense fleeces with COLOR in this pedigree tells us she should be in a color breeding program.
Fleece - well defined crimp with good amplitude and about 7 crimps per inch. Bright. Silky soft. Well defined, solid staples.
Sire - Franklin's Liberty is one of the densest alpacas ever, as proven by skin biopsy. A handsome example of the quality that can result from crossing the Accoyo and Alianza lines, he is proving his worth as a sire. A grandson of the fawn Accoyo male Felix, and the great Hemingway.
Dam - Salutation's Sunflower is the daughter of one of the 'cornerstones' of the Sixth Day herd: PPP Salutation. Among other fine traits, she passes along her dense, gorgeous fleece and well defined crimp. Salutation kept that desireable crimp archetecture into her teens!
Sunflower's sire is a SILVER GREY. That, and a fawn/brown spot on her neck (just like Matrix!) indicates her potential - and her crias' potential - to produce high-end crias 'in living COLOR'!
