When we began Storybook Alpacas we were told to start with the best. Carmeltina, a full Peruvian, Pendragon of Peru daughter, one of our first animals, came to us with multiple championships and bred to Snowmass Golden Seal. She is magnificent with beautiful fleece and an extraordinary elegance we have not seen in any other animal, all complemented by her gentle personality. Soft, dense, consistent fleece from Carmeltina has supplied us with a beautiful supply of yarn showing off her Royal Fawn heritage. Attesting to her value are her siblings who have also done well in the show ring and her crias who have all won 1st up to multiple champion.
Carmeltina has gone on to prove herself with show stopping crias, textbook births and has been the perfect vision of motherhood. Her attentiveness to her crias has been amazing and her milk supply - well our vet called her a dairy cow!
Carmeltina has produced 5 cria to date, 2 females and 3 males. Her oldest daughter, Snugglers' Per
Revelation's first cria are on the ground! Almost all are grey out of various colors of dams including 1/2 accoyo! He just had a true black out of a silver grey dam. His cria are now hitting the showring and have been doing very well.
Revelation's skin biopsy is in and we couldn't be happier.
Ian Watt did a biopsy on Revelation and he had this to say: "You will find the results quite satisfactory!" and also "These figures represent a SUPERIOR silver grey male in todays grey population!"
Follicle Density: 54.01 follicles/mm S/P 9.5:1
Revelation received the highest fleece score of all greys at '08 Nationals, composite class where he took a blue ribbon.
Revelation is a stunning full Peruvian light silver grey herd sire. A judge commented that Revelation is one of only a couple "true" silver grey alpacas he had ever seen.
Revelation's sire is the legendary 5Peruvian Royal Inca Legend, a medium silver grey sire who passed a
Manifestation was such an awesome cria that we had to give him a name he would grow into - and boy has he grown into it! "Does he have any dates yet? Because he should!" commented Kevin O'Leary at 2012 Nationals. "He grew up, but his micron didn't," was only one of the enthusiastic comments from Wade Gease at the 2012 Buckeye Show. Amanda VandenBosch presented his 2013 Best of the U.S. Blue commenting, "He's cool and he knows it!" Manifestation has also won Blue under Nick Harrington-Smith and Jill MacLeod. His amazing bone, incredible presence, and awesome head is set off by a soft, extremely dense, crimpy, luscious fleece you would never expect to see in grey and with very few spots except the beautiful brown heart he wears. Manifestation's staples are so consistent you can barely tell the cut end from the tip and carry a wonderful hand, all evidenced by his 2012 Nationals Spin-Off Blue Ribbon. To top it all off, Mani has a gentle personality and is just plain cute! Confirming his genetics, his sister, Storybook Princess, took National Champion in 2012 after many other Blues and Championships. His dam has been a fantastic mom who our vet refers to as a "milk cow." While the heritage of an alpaca may not be as critical as the fleece it produces, Manifestations pure Peruvian bloodlines provide a special niche if you want to stand out from the crowd. He is the only known full Peruvian grey Huacaya male to have taken a Champion in three consecutive years (2011 - 2013) still taking blue at 2014 Nationals and Reserve Champion in 2015 Best of the US at almost 5 years old. Manifestation just keeps getting better with crias now showing what he can throw. Hes the manifestation of our breeding program. What would a little Manifestation look like in yours? Mani is now available for purchase with our grey breeding package. Call for details today. Storybook Alpacas .. Where Happily Ever Afters Begin!
