Starburst is a multi-blue ribbon winner in both halter and fleece competitions. At the New England Coastal Classic Julio Sumar singled her out early for her classic look and fleece characteristics. Her sire, "I-Star", is the full-blooded Accoyo son of Peruvian Snowmaster and his genetics for exceptional density, crimp, and fineness are reflected in her fleece. Starburst gave birth to Warrick in July, a beautiful white male, out of Snowmass Prodigy owned by the North American Alpaca Stud. She is now being bred to Snowmass Golden Sovereign.
Light Brown, 851787, 1/8 Chilean, 7/8 Peruvian
Golden Sovereign is co-owned by Maple View Farm Alpacas and Cas-Cad-Nac Farm, LLC. Sovereign has been a special male from the beginning. His three Championships speak to his fine and excellent conformation. He has grown into a stunning young male and joined his paternal brothers Archangel and Guinness in upholding Snowmass Legacy Gold's good name as he began breeding. Though he is a brown replica of his sire, one must also give great credit to his super-fine white dam, PPPeruvian Jesusa. Sovereign settled his first females, and his first offspring are on the ground ... stunning!
Note: Golden Sovereign has sold out his outside breedings for 2006. If interested, please feel free to contact us about 2007.
Gigi is the first offspring out of Golden Sovereign, a Legacy Gold son co-owned by Maple View Farm and Cas-Cad-Nac Farm, and she's just what we expected from this ribbon winning breeding combination (Mom is a blue ribbon winner herself)!
Gigi has shown in halter at the very large and competitive North America Alpaca Show (twice), MAPACA Julibee, Empire Alpaca Extravaganza, the Green Mountain Alpaca Fall Spectacular and the Maryland Alpaca Show as well as in shorn at the CNY Classic, bringing home ribbons from all 7.
Gigi's fiber is fine and crimpy. The EAE judge said she had the best confirmation in the class and will make a great female to have in a production herd. Gigi's 2nd placement at the Green Mountain Alpaca Fall Spectacular in a large and competivite class of 12 was particularly exciting as she placed behind CCNF Moonlight, also out of Golden Sovereign and a multiple color champion. The judge raved about Gigi's awesome density. In both of the 2008 shows, where Gigi showed as a yearling, the judges commented on her soft handle and "buttery" feel. They also described her as dense, fine, even across the blanket and structurally sound, making an excellent production animal in a program breeding or looking for color with strong genetics.
Gigi has developed into an alpaca with all the attributes we look for in a female. In 2010 Gigi gave us a gorgeous girl out of Revolution and a dark fawn male out of our own Calix in 2011. In 2013 Gigi once again produced a beautiful male. She is a steady producer.
In 2015 Gigi produced a white female our of Quarry Ridge's Grand Slam! She is currently open and can be bred for a new owner. She also sells with $100 credit toward fiber processing at the Vermont Fiber Mill & Studio.
