Dona has produced 4 outstanding male offspring, all of herdsire quality. 2004, she gave us a beautiful medium silver grey female out of Socosani, she sold big at the Spring Fling auction 2006. We were so impressed with the quality of this cria that she has been rebred to Socosani for 2005. In 2005 she gave us a true black female who placed 1st in her very first show at IAOBA 2006 (Socosani's Cache). Dona has fiber to die for with crimp, fineness, density and handle (also sold big at the Breeders Edge 2006). Dona is conformationally perfect in every way, winning the 1998 National Fleece Championship and Halter champion yearling grey female at the AOBA conference. Dona comes from Silvercloud and C4Merrill - both chilean greys of superb quality. 2006 - Dona just gave birth to a beautiful medium rose grey male (half accoyo) by a fawn full accoyo "Archemedis". He is spectacular and we are thrilled -- therefor -- of course a breed back to Archemides! for a fall 2007 cria. Her rose grey c

Archimedes is a rare cross of ACCOYO CAMILIO and an ACCOYO CALIGULA daughter. He is a solid cornerstone for our herd development, giving us a top quality herdsire to offer for breedbacks now that we are selling. His medium fawn fleece has beautiful character (BEST CRIMP IN SHOW) and amazing brightness with the density and staple length of his maternal grandsire, Caligula. He has a classic Camilio head, well-developed topknot, dark eyes and is the DARKEST FULL ACCOYO HERDSIRE IN MARYLAND.
Archimedes took the RESERVE COLOR CHAMPION banner at the 2005 Southern Select Alpaca and swept the ABC Halter Show with FIVE BLUES including BEST HUACAYA and BEST IN SHOW!!! He followed that up with 2 BLUE RIBBONS at the 2005 PAOBA Br
MANY BEAUTIFUL MEDIUM ROSE GREY CRIA DUPLICATES OF CRUSADER!!!! (Out of a solid TB females and a rose grey female), also a drg female cria out of a solid modern rose grey dam, and a TB female out of a TB dam. Half ACCOYO and rose grey perfection! What a great combination of grey and fawn genetics! So, he is a female producer! That's very important if you are breeding to a male! more important if you are buying a male! He is crimpy and soft, with bright and glossy fiber. No spots -- NONE!! His feet are white as is his forhead, grey ears, then rose grey throughout. Even in 2011, showing retained crimp. He is LOADED with density, crimp and brightness... almost like a platinum sheen ....Mary Reed estimated his micron at 14-16 microns and said there was absolutely no guard hair in the sample she pulled to inspect! Of course his sire and dam have been re-bred for a repeat performance! Check out his full sister, Crystal, she is the AOBA Juvenille rose grey female blue ribbon winner! His sire is a full accoyo fawn macho (Accoyo Archimedes)and with offspring like this, you can bet his stud fee will be rising quickly! Crusader has very large feet and big thick heavy legs that are covered with fiber all the way to the toes! His dam has taught him well, as Dona, his dam is a 2 time AOBA champion herself in both fleece and halter. Crusader is producing excellent offspring, in darker shades and greys.
Still not convinced of the outstanding pedigree offered here, check out Silver Sterling who is the half brother to Crusader, he is a knock out show winner in Silver grey, related on the dams side. Producer of several color champions and many blue ribbon off spring.
Actively seeking a partnership on this fine male.
