Benchmark's Peruvian Pistol   


Dark Silver Grey, 831214, Full Peruvian


Pistol is one of our best foundation dams. She was one of the very first alpacas we bought and if I had it to do over again I would in a heartbeat! Pistol has fantastic conformation, she stands like a proud queen. She has a wonderful handle to her fiber. She showed in black. She surprised us at her second shearing when her neck came in grey. Now she is gray though her blanket. We bought Pistol as a true black, but she is clearly a dark silver grey, having thrown grey out of a solid, non-white herdsire four times. Her first cria was a fawn ½ accoyo female cria (Nyala's Peruvian Carousel Girl) who has taken blue ribbons and a championship. Pistol's second cria was another stunning 1/2 accoyo, a classic tuxedo rose grey (Nyala's Perucoyo Tamerlane), out of Camilio's Accoyo the Babe. Tam took a blue ribbon in his first show and has went on to take 4 more blues. Her third cria is an amazing dark silver gray girl (Liadan who sold before she was 3 months old) out of our own Alianza

    Medium Fawn, 1264630, Full Peruvian  

Andy saw Riley in auction and just fell in love with him. His fleece is just to die for. He has a typey look with incredible tree trunk legs. We cannot wait to see what he can do for our breeding program. His dam Sibaya was a lovely import. His father is legendary accoyo import Titan. Titan has thrown champions in every color including black. We think Riley will make amazing cria too. If you look closely at his picture you can see the crimp in his top knot. If you want to make showy cria this is your guy.

Newsflash: Riley's first cria were born this summer! All we can say is Wow! Great color! We got a fawn out of a brown dam, a black out of a brown dam, a silver gray out of a silver gray dam and a light rose gray out of a silver gray dam. The fawn cria Prince Valiant has the nicest crimp we have seen on a newborn. The dark silver gray has amazing crimp too! We are really looking forward to getting these cria in the ring!

Riley is proudly co-owned

This is a cross between one of best dams (Pistol) and one of the best males Phil Mizrahi made at Pet Center (PC Riley's Life). Riley was a fawn titan son. Pistol gave us ten great cria over the years. Danni is a big girl. Awesome mom. We sold Danni years ago and agreed to take her back when her owner became very ill. She comes with a beautiful female cria at side (weaned now actually) name Brienne, out a fawn accoyo stud (Stratosphere son). Danni is a great nurser. We have bred her to our Harlequin Grey junior stud Tristano for a summer 19 cria.
