Thompson Hollow Buttercup   


Beige, 832936, Full Peruvian


Buttercup is a lovely beige girl with large dark eyes and nose. She is strong and compact with very dense and fine fiber. Her lineage is excellent with Timoteo and Macusani as grandfathers, and award-winning Macusani's He's a Hoot as her sire. Buttercup is bred to Canzelle's Zambezi for a late Fall 2005 cria.

  Canzelle's Zambezi  
    True Black, 845807, Full Chilean  

We are proud to offer Canzelle's Zambezi as a premier black herdsire. His geneology is stupendous: his maternal grandsire is the famous Sinopsis Nocturna and his paternal grandsire is the renowned Danko. Incredible genes and 3 generations of black and grey! Zambezi is sculpted in black, his conformation flawless. His extremely dense fiber carries tight, high amplitude crimp from his topknot to his toes. His calm personality makes him easy to handle and he is an enthusiastic but gentle breeder.

Zambezi has won top honors at every show entered, including Black Color Champion at MAPACA 2004 over 98 other blacks and Black Color Champion at OABA AlpacaFest 2004. A truly superior young male, Zambezi settled his first female at 21 months and is now an active herdsire in our breeding program.
UPDATE: Zambezi's first 8 crias have been born, 6 females and and 2 males, all beautiful! One medium brown (out of white), one medium silver grey, one dark silver grey, and five blacks.

Print Listing | Certificate | Histogram

Canzelle's ZAMBEZI daughter! A Cappella is a lovely young female with stunning conformation and very fine dark silver grey fiber full of crimp. She carries herself with pride, perhaps because A Cappella boasts Macusani and Timoteo bloodlines on her mother's side and Sinopsis Nocturna and Danko on her father's side.

A Cappella delivered a lovely silver gray male cria out of Legend's Challenger of KPR in 2008. Bred back to Starbuck of Alta Vista, she delivered another awesome cria, QR Straight Up No Chaser, in the Fall of 2009. A Cappella is currently bred to Emerald Farm's Orlando Cloud for a summer 2011 cria.
