Quarry Ridge A Cappella   


Dark Silver Grey, 30370777, 1/2 Chilean, 1/2 Peruvian


Canzelle's ZAMBEZI daughter! A Cappella is a lovely young female with stunning conformation and dark silver grey fiber full of crimp. She carries herself with pride, perhaps because A Cappella boasts Macusani and Timoteo bloodlines on her mother's side and Sinopsis Nocturna and Danko on her father's side.

A Cappella delivered a lovely silver gray male cria out of Legend's Challenger of KPR, recently sold for $125,000 and whose breeding fee is $7,500. She is bred back to Starbuck of Alta Vista for another awesome cria, hopefully another silver gray, in the Fall of 2009.

Anyone would agree that Challenger is truly one of the best Grey Herd Sires in the country! His fleece is comparable to the best fawns and whites, exhibiting tremendous density while maintaining great fineness and staple length. In addition, he has excellent bightness to add with his elite style fleece. His bundling is very tight with excellent seperation of bundles, a high frequency crimp of 8 crimps per inch and the curvature that most alpaca owners wish they could have in their programs. He has extremely strong color genetics and has produced 100% black and grey out of black and grey. Challenger has a very successful show career, competing successfully at some of the most competitive shows, including the KY Classic and Futurity. Check out his brief but impressive show results. But we all know that the true test of a great Herd Sire is not what he wins, but what he produces! We are pleased to say that Challenger has not only lived up to our expectations, but has far exceeded t

We waited a long time for this boy and he was worth it! Ikon is an amazing gray male out of Multi-Champion, Challenger of KPR, and an award-winning Dark Silver Gray daughter of Canzelle's Zambezi. Ikon is a medium silver gray that shades to dark gray on his belly and his legs. His fiber is dense, fine and with amazing crimp and handle, "silky" as commented by Amanda VandenBosch at the North American Alpaca Show. (AFD 18.48, CV 18.43)

Ikon is stunning! Wonderful phenotype, very balanced and well-proportioned. He placed second at the North American Alpaca Show behind the Champion in a very large and competitive class, and third at the NorthEast Expo in another large class. Ikon is very gentle and easy to handle, an elegant young gentleman. We look forward to showing him this Fall and breeding him in 2010.

We offer 1/2 interest in Ikon to a farm that makes geographical sense. Or, if you prefer to own all of this lovely young male, we would retain 3 breedings. This guy will be a real asset to your gray/black program.
