Bay Black, 1093810, 1/2 Peruvian, 1/2 Other/Unknown
Jewel of the Nile took several Blue Ribbons at some of the largest shows in the country and the Reserve Champion at Mapaca against 78 other females. Amazing fleece characteristics, flawless conformation and bred to one of the best Bay Black Males in Powerplays Shadow... Can't wait to see the results.
UPDATE: Shadow just earned another RESERVE CHAMPIONSHIP at nearly 7 years of age!!! Powerplay's Shadow is a very nice bay black male from the Accoyo Timoteo line. He has always brought home a ribbon no matter the show or the competition, with every judge commenting on his great fleece characteristics and heavy bone. Shadow is like a good wine, he gets better with age. At his last 5 out of 6 shows he has earned the Blue ribbon in his class even at five years of age. Shadow has a dense, but very fine fleece with bold consistant crimp throughout. He has a great head and very stout stance. Shadow has an exceptionally fine fleece for a Bay Black male, he has the fineness of many white animals. With several cria on the ground now we can say with cofidence "He will NOT dissapoint"! We think Shadow would be a good choice for any color from fawn to grey. One of Shadow's first offspring, Shenandoah's Luke, has taken 4 Blue Ribbons in a row! Second son, Gabriel, 3 Blue's in a row!
Gabriel is the incredible result of the convergence of the championship black genetic lines of Peruvian Powerplay and Black Ice/Black Icecapade.
Gabriel is a gorgeous true black male with ultra soft fleece just full of crimp and bundles. He has a regal presence and in his inaugural show season he won three blue ribbons and a third place ribbon at the prestigious 2008 MAPACA Jubilee, the largest alpaca show ever held. The judges said that he was the "total package" and "perfect phenotype". At MAPACA he placed above the first place winner from the 2008 North American Alpaca show, and was told by Judge Tim Lavan, who said the first four ribbon winners were "very even", that he had the finest fleece in the class. Gabriel is the son of Powerplay's Shadow and Jewel of the Nile, and grandson of Black Icecapade and Peruvian Powerplay. Black Icecapade is a show champion many times over and one of the top five black herdsires in the USA. Peruvian Powerplay, son of Accoyo Timoteo, is also a multiple show champion, and is one of the nation's premier herdsires -- an extraordinary half Accoyo male with an elite fleece with deep, bold crimp, excellent density and consistant coverage throughout.
Powerplay's Shadow is a half Peruvian/half Bolivian bay black male with a dense but very fine fleece with bold consistant crimp throughout and heavy bone. Shadow has won two championships, one reserve championship, and six first place ribbons at prestigious shows such as the MAPACA Jubilee, Virginia Classic, and VAOBA. Gabriel, like his father, has a great head and very stout stance. Gabriel's mother, Jewel, also has an impressive show record, with first place ribbons at MAPACA and the Virginia Classic. The first cria sired by Gabriel was a gorgeous true black female, and his second cria is due this Fall.
