Oh boy..... where do I start? How about Exotica's dam?
Veloura Gold, one of Anthony Stachowski's beloved girls, has produced Valinka, who sold at the "07 Futurity auction for $48,000, Velyssa, who sold at the '06 Peruvian Classic for $43,500, Royal Velvet, a color Champ, and one of Mary's Alpacas' most favorite foundation girls, and of course, Champion Valente.
Now on to Exotica.....
Exotica, at 10 years old, still has BEAUTIFUL crimp and fineness, with minimal guard hair. She stands tall and proud, with impeccable conformation.
Exotica's daughter, Alexa, sold at the "06 Peruvian Classic sale for $29,000, one of the top selling dams at the auction. I just couldn't get my eyes off of her!
Exotica also has a daughter, Sophya, a Dark Brown, award winning gal , who has fiber to die for! Exotica's 2006 son is a Champion, Master Musician. And at 10 years old, Exoticas fleece micron count is 21.8.
CONTENDER HAS CRIA ON THE GROUND AND THEY ARE STUNNING!!!! He is passing along his beautiful head, perfect conformation, big bone, and dense crimpy fleece! And being beige out of brown and fawn, Contender is throwing OODLES of color! EXACTLY what we have been hoping for!
We were looking for that special male to round out our breeding and marketing program....
A Male with:
Awesome ELITE Fiber Awesome Lineage Awesome Conformation Awesome Head Awesome Leg Coverage Awesome Temperament
AND.... AWESOME OWNERS!!!!
We are THRILLED to now be the co-owners of Avenger's Sunburst Contender and the partners of Susanne Thatcher and Sherri Thatcher-Harshman of Sunburst Alpacas, in Cortland, Ohio!

I THINK IT IS THE MAGICAL MIX WE HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR! THIS GUY IS ABSOLUTELY ELITE! FROM THE CRIMP ON HIS HEAD TO THE WRINKLES ON THE FRONT AND BACK OF HIS NECK! HE DOES HAVE CONSI
Origami has a very special name for a very special little girl. The art of Origami consists of many folds, that creates interesting and beautiful objects. Our little Origami consists of so many skin folds, that she feels like a shar-pei dog! She is incredibly dense, with unbelievable luster and fineness.
Origami is certainly following in her siblings' footsteps! Stratera, Masterfold, Stratego, and Exuberance all have incredibly dense, lusterous, waxy fleeces! And Origami's dam Exotica STILL has high luster, crimpy fleece! Very Strong genetically!
If we were to keep Origami, we would breed her to our Multi-Champion Full Accoyo Dark Fawn "The Accoyo Intimidator".
Because Origami was born in the fall, we chose not to shear her. I can't wait to see how her 2nd fleece grows in!
