Print Listing | Certificate | Histogram
 
 

Already a Color Champion at 8 months old, now with 11 championships and 24 blue ribbons, Kestrel has one of the most stunning fleeces we've ever seen. His fleece has a very soft hand and is incredibly fine, bright and uniform with beautifully organized staples from skin to tips. He has extreme fineness, a robust frame, a true-to-type head and impressive fleece.

Kestrel boasts flawless conformation, solid bone, a classic head and fiber that is absolutely stunning. Dense, long-stapled, with zipper crimp out to the tips and extraordinary brightness, Kestrel's fleece is outstanding. His juvenile fleece won the Brown Color Championship at the Empire Extravaganza Fleece Show 2015.
This young male will bring outstanding genotype and phenotype to your breeding program. If we didn't own his older brother, we would certainly keep Kestrel in our program. We will reserve breedings.

Kestrel has championed among the best and judge Jill McLeod summed it up well when she stated, "This is the standard we should all be breeding for."

Kestrel is co-owned with Quarry Ridge Alpacas

Quarry Ridge Marimba   

 
   

Dark Brown, 30881044, Full Peruvian

 
   

Marimba’s pedigree reads like a Who's Who in America. Her dam is a daughter of MFI Peruvian Jericho and granddaughter of 5 Peruvian Camelot and her sire is My Peruvian Obsydian. And all you need to do is look at her to realize that she has garnered the best from these awesome bloodlines. Marimba is a rich dark brown with black points. She is conformationally correct with a perfect bite but it's her fiber that is her crowning jewel. It is very fine and equally dense with high frequency crimp all the way out the long stapled locks.

 
       
  Snowmass Conopa's Kahuna  
    Dark Fawn, 31795531  
   

Snowmass Conopa's Kahuna was one of two incredible Herdsires we were able to acquire a half interest in from our friends at Tripping Gnome Farm late in 2012.

Because we have shared so many genetics with the Snowmass herd over the years, he is at least distantly related to many of the females in our breeding program. No matter though. There are names in his pedigree that frankly we can never really get enough of. The fact that Kahuna is one powerhouse distillation of them all is really just a bonus as far as we are concerned! Quality begets quality, it's really not rocket science after all.

Though we will most likely shy away from crossing Kahuna too much with the Matrix Majesty daughters (Majesty's mom and Kahuna's paternal granddam are one and the same), that still leaves a load of Cameron and Ring of Fire kids and their descendants for him to pivot off of to say nothing of the amazing crop of Elixir girls when they come of age. We now have our first significant bir
