This half Accoyo male is carrying on the tradition of density and crimp. Messiah Alyst shears approx. 13 lbs each year while maintaining a mid twenties micron. He has been described as a carpet of crimp.
Messiah's offspring are all very solid with amazing fleeces. Bentley Alyst is a Grand Champion in both halter show and fleece show as well as Reserve Champion at 3 years of age. Northmark's Messiah's Prophetess is a Reserve Dark (Black)Color Champion. Revolution Alyst was also a Grand Black Color Champion in 2006. Neville Lakes Mekayla won Grand Champion Dark at the 2008 Canadian National Futurity as well as other Championships. Our best cria in 2009 was sired by Messiah.
His dam Priscilla Alyst (a NGG Lional daughter, Bueno granddaughter) is our top producing female. His sire is Victor's Vaccoyo a top producing son of Victor no longer available in Canada.
When we got the chance to purchase Prophetess it was an easy decision! As soon as she was born we fell in love with her. Prophetess was a reserve champion and her 2009 criation took Grand Champion at the ALPACA Spring Show as well as the ALPACA Odyssey Show in November 2010. He also took Reserve Champion at the Lloydminster Show in October 2010 and has now gone on to win Grand Champion at the CNASF. This girl is an excellent producer of black and dark brown offspring.
Prophetess takes the honor of shearing one of the highest weights at KJ in 2011! Her fleece still has exceptional growth and length for her age with a beautiful hand to it as well.
Prophetess delivered a strong healthy dark brown female in 2011. She is already over 100 lbs at 4 months of age. We did some cria fleece tipping on her but we should have sheared her right down as her fleece length is already very long. SOLD!
August 2012: Prophetess delivers yet another girl! The easiest birth of the year and up and running within minutes. SOLD!
July 1, 2014: Prophetess delivers another fawn girl! We are very pleased with this girl. Again up and running in minutes...26lbs at birth!
This is a very special girl to us, we love having her around, she is a stunning black although she is quite coarse, she has everything else. At 12 years old, she still grows over 3 inches length and has excellent brightness and crimp. These are all traits that are extremely hard to get in a black.
Another Canada Day cria for Prophetess...this time a black boy out of Tahir! (SOLD)
We will be retiring Prophetess from our breeding program. She is a nice girl to have around and can live out her life here on the farm.
