We are very thrilled to have acquired a granddaughter from Rico de Peru and Snowmass Nova! Many thanks to Lona Frank, Alpacas of Tualatin Valley, for agreeing to exchange our KCAF RRoyal Rhapsodee for ATV Delite.
Delite's fleece exhibits very good density, uniformity, fineness and has a wonderfully soft handle.
Delite is a paternal sister to our Reserve Champion Carmelina.
Her sire, Nuance(owned by Alpacas of Tualatin Valley and Skyline Alpacas), is a stunning TB by Snowmass Nova. On her maternal side, she hails from the Accoyo Royal Fawn, Rico de Peru, 6Peruvian 007, and P. Gold Rush bloodlines.
She is bred to Elation from Mr. Roosevelt / P. Andrajo, P. Silvio, P. Quicksilver and Accoyo Leon bloodlines.
We are very much looking forward to Delite's crias.
Silver Elation is a rare dilute silver gray with an incredibly soft, well bundled and consistent fleece without any spots. This male was born with a distinct Classic Silver Gray pattern which all but disappeared as his fiber dried. Every person who has seen him has been impressed by this amazing fleece that appears platinum in color with white in the neck, bib, face and legs.
When we took him to two shows in 2008, he was put into an indefinite class which did not allow him to show appropriately but he still won the Blue Ribbons in those VERY competitive classes.
WOW! Elation has matured into a beautiful masculine male with good stature. Take a look at what a consistant and nice handling fleece we took off Elation at 3 years of age! (See his attached histogram)
Elation's offspring are definately pleasing with their excellent conformation and BEAUTIFUL fleeces! Take a look at his award winning kids.
Proudly Co-Owned with Skyline Alpacas!
