Athene is a full Bolivian by Acero Markas Champ, a true black Champion with many award winning offspring. She has dense, crimpy and consistently fine fleece with excellent conformation. Athene is a consistent producer one look at her crias Arriele and Jersey Gold will confirm this.
Elixir is a 2X Reserve Champion and at the age of 8½ still maintains his soft handle with incredibly dense fiber. He is truly an exceptional male. However, the proof of an exceptional herdsire is in his progeny.
A herdsire who consistently passes his genetics to offspring is essential to any breeding program. We, as alpaca breeders, must strive for this to improve the next generation of our national herd. However, breeding a herdsire to only elite females may not tell you if he has the ability to improve the next generation.
Elixir has been bred to females of Peruvian, Chilean and Bolivian heritage. His offspring are consistent improvements over their dam. They have correct conformation with an alert stance and good bone. Owners have often commented on the Elixir head of their crias. You can just pick them out! Their fiber is dense, soft and crimpy with great coverage. Elixir also allows color to come through with offspring ranging from white to true black.
2018-He's even better, still #1, and in addition, in the top 5 EPD trail leader list for 2 more categories. AND top 1% in 5 categories. AND he can be yours. Last year 2017 - and he has done it again, retaining his #1 status as well as being featured again in the top 10 for three other EPD traits. Previoius year:HE'S SO FINE. SO GLAD HE'S MINE (OURS). Ollie has surpassed his previous EPD rankings this year. He has been featured in the top 5 EPD traits at the two previous National Shows and this year retains his #1 status in the % medullation category, as well as being featured again for spin fineness. He has added 2 other categories in the top 5 this year. With his combination of fiber, conformation, and heritage, Oliver would make a positive impact on breeding programs. His enthusiastic breeding to Scarlet O'Hara resulted in his first cria, Olympia of TKY, who displays her sire's gorgeous crimpy fiber, with AFD 15.7 and Mean Curvature 42.0, and has produced a lovely cria of her own. His Spring 2015 crias continue in this vein, with fine crimpy fiber. Latest judge's comment rated his an "exceptional fleece." And, really, it is all about the fiber.
Oliver has produced crias from black to white.
