Steele Magnolia is the offspring of our best true black female, Peaceful Valley Grace, and the indisputable powerhouse of grey genetics, Aussie Rockford. Maggie is an absolutely stunning silver grey girl. Her pedigree is a phenomenal combination of black and grey genetics perfectly balanced with Accoyo/Peruvian bloodlines from Yupanqui, Felix, and Guellermo.
Maggie is firmly established as a foundation female. It is usually the studs that get the credit on most farms, but with this girl's track record she handily deserves the title of "stud female" here on our farm. She has produced 5 amazing offspring to date. Look at the collage at the right to see the style she stamps on her kids, and these are ALL from different herdsires. No doubt who is throwing the "style" genes in Maggie's cria.
Maggie is a beautiful medium silver grey with many positive attributes.
Meet Xanadu After Hours, co-owned with Peaceful Valley Alpacas. Perfect phenotype and classic pedigree describe this stunning proven male. He's a wonderful combination of elite fleece (Caligula bloodline) and generations of color.
The judges agree with our assessment of his potential with 3 times 1st Place and Reserve Champion, 1st Place at 2005 GWAS, 2nd Place at AAA Futurity, and 2nd Place at 2005 AOBA Nationals. He is a stunning boy with an amazing temperament.
Now with over 30 cria on the ground it is clear that After Hours is delivering in the breeding barn. We can safely say (as safe as genetic predictions can be) that After Hours is consistently producing cookie cutter replica's of himself. From deep black & grey color & pedigree he has produced black or grey in 11 of the 12 black & grey dams bred to him. Females that bring other colors both in phenotype & genotype he tends to let the dam's color come through.
Abbey Road made her show ring debut at the 2012 Northwest Alpaca Showcase. She placed second in her class of 8 females, and was then selected for the Reserve Color Championship. Judge Wade Gease selected her out of a field of 23 females for the coveted Reserve spot. Covered from the top of her stylish head with fine, dense, bright fleece, she is our second After Hours daughter to grace the Championship ring. Starting the year out with a bang she is a female who will only get better once her tui fleece comes off.
Abbey Road is another lovely daughter out of our favorite grey female, Steele Magnolia. Maggie has consistently produced knockout cria for us who have matured into top show animals, including Stonyridge Kandor standing stud at Sleeping Monk Farm in New Hampshire, Stonyridge Cadence of Oregon Trail Alpacas, and our own Reserve Color Champion, Brooklyn Roads.
Abbey is out of our true black stud, Xanadu After Hours, and she will be fun to watch grow up. Maggie brings a pedigree filled with top bloodlines including, Aussie Rockford, Peruvian Felix, Michelangelo, Guellermo, and that is just the top side. The dams in her pedigree are equally top producers of Hannaruh, Silver Empress, and our top production female, Peaceful Valley Grace. After Hours brings Round Midnight, Peruvian Presidio, Caligula, and silver grey Aysen2 Concepcion.
Experienced breeders know the importance of loading a pedigree with predictable genetics, and this girl has top potential.
