Tropical Delight is a beautiful dark brown female who has given us our 10X Black Color Champ Rumm Runner, and she's done it again! Her 2007 cria, Mesquite's Tropical Storm, is a stunning fawn male with fine, dense, extremely bright fleece! Tropical's sire is MFI Peruvian Donovan, a multi-Champ award winner, and her grandsire is Accoyo Peruvian Augusto. Donovan's and Augusto's bloodlines are noted for dense, elite fleeces, and Tropical definitely passes on these characteristics. Also, Tropical took 1st place in Produce of Dam at 2008 Ohio Buckeye Show. With her genetics and champion service sires, she has delivered outstanding results for us.
If you want to improve your herd with the Donovan and Quetzal bloodlines and produce colorful cria with dense, elite fleece, Tropical Delight is a proven producer of top quality alpacas and would be an excellent addition to your breeding program.
His crias have ranged in color from black and grey to white, with magnificent presence, coverage, perfect conformation and outstanding fleece. His crias have soft, dense fleeces with tiny, deep crimp. They also have Quetzal's typey head.
