Monsoon arrived on the heels of a glorious rain in the middle of a dry, dry summer. This girl was one of our fastest starters and was up and nursing in under 30 minutes. In her first show, the 2003 International, she won a third place in a very competitive grey class. She also went on to win a blue ribbon and Reserve Color Champion (NeverSummer's Raku won Color Champion!) at the 2003 Great Western Alpaca Show. Monsoon's fleece is extremely consistent and has delicate, high frequency crimp. In the 2005 AWE Fleece Show (judged by Ruth Elvestad) she was awarded 20 out of 20 for Fineness and Handle. Her sire's, Silver Charm's, consistency is one of his trademarks (along with great presence and mellow temperament). Monsoon's '06 cria, NeverSummer's Black Ice, was awarded "Supreme Champion Male Huacaya" at the 2007 Midwest Alpaca Jamboree (International format) by Dr.Julio Sumar and Sue Lenk (Uk)! All of Monsoon's offspring are solidly conformed with heavy bone.
Cresent Moon's Rayo Del Sol
Medium Rose Grey, 821376, Chilean
Rayo experienced an amazing individual career in the show ring, including a Futurity Color Championship, two AOBA National Color Championships (2001 & 2002) & 5 additional Color Championships. In the show ring, he beat some of the most prominent grey males in the country including Shaquille, Navigator, Kaspa, Premieres Absolute, Shades of Gray & many, many others. With only 67 cria on the ground at this time, his cria have reaffirmed his excellence and confirmed his potency with an abundance of red & blue & close to 40 banners in just 2 1/2 years of breeding and at the most prominent shows in the country.
Moondoggie is one the newest addition to Abra-Cadabra Alpacas grey herdsire line up. In our pursuit to have very diversified bloodlines, but also a soft fine hadlr to the fleece, he was chosen for many reasons: 1. He is a son of 6-time CHAMPION of CRESCENT MOON'S RAYO DEL SOL, himself a Danko son, and the son of NeverSummer's MONSOON, 1st place and RESERVE COLOR CHAMPION 2003 GWAS.
2. He is maintaining his excellent fleece quality as he gets older. 4 year histogram MFD 22.9, SD 4.7, CV 20.7, 5.5%>30.
3. His 2008 cria, Gravitas, is a gorgeous example of what Moondoggie is capable of producing. Gravita's 2 year histogram is MFD 18.0, SD 3.3, CV 18.5,0.7%>30. VERY, VERY NICE for a medium silver grey. At Mopaca, his only show in 2010, Gravitas places 3rd (over a 10-time Champion)The judge commented that Gravitas was the finest and the densest in the class.
4. NeverSummer's Farms chose to breed Moondoggie back to Gavitas's dam over their World Champion .38 Special. Breeding didn't happen before Moondoggie left the farm, unfortunately.
5. Moondoggie is also a half-brother on his dam's side to NeverSummer's Black Ice. Black Ice was awarded "Supreme Champion Huacaya Male" at the 2007 Mason City, Iowa International show by Dr.Julio Sumar and Su Lenk(UK)! This is the award given to the top male huacaya of the entire show, regardless of age or color, and rarely goes to a non-white alpaca, let alone a black. Dr.Sumar called Black Ice "a perfect black alpaca".
6. His very correct conformation and body type.
We are starting out his breeding career here at a very low price. Check out our herdsire specials.
