Apex Kahuna's Accoyo Kisu

SuriFemaleWhite
AOA# DOB: 7/4/20137 yrs
This accoyo girl has nice luster & fineness that is something her full brother Accoyo Kahuna Giovanni has done for his offspring also. Kisu is out of a nice dam and the phenomenal sire Kahuna! He has an excellent production history, was herdsire of the year 5 years in a row, reserve herdsire on each end of those years and won numerous get of sire awards, top EPDs... Her EPDs are top 15% in fineness uniformity and 10% staple length. This girl was born on the Fourth of July. We believe she was named Kisu, Japanese for kiss. If you are a romantic you would have loved a past breeding. They were sweet young lovers kissing under a tin roof on a rare summer rain. Her first breed was a lineb...

High Luster! Brawny build!

APEX Bracito's Fromage

SuriHerdsire (Male)White
ARI# AOA# 32475685   DOB: 7/27/20137 yrs
APEX Bracito's Fromage is a herdsire to have confidence in. He is a large-framed, large-boned male with a square confident presentation. And loaded onto that substantial frame is a truly lovely fleece. He has the high luster that is characteristic of both of his parents, really nice organization into his 4th fleece, and a high degree of retained fineness. Fromage's first crias are here and we are pleased. They are exhibiting his size and vigor, as well as beautiful fleece with high luster. His bloodlines carry back to Ramilo, Baron Lafite, Uribe and Santiago---some of the most significant original Accoyo lines. With a pedigree like this and his amazing phenotype you would be hard-p...

Dancing Elk's Isabella

HuacayaFemaleTrue Black
AOA# DOB: 9/1/20164 yrs
We didn't know in summer of 2017 when we picked up two girls from Dancing Elk alpacas that we would be back again so soon. When we saw first hand how they are cared for, recognize the integrity and discernment made in a breeding program, we literally said we want to buy more but need to sell some first (Imagine that concept) Fortunately it worked out. We just love Isabella's maternal grandmother and we feel so very fortunate this girl was available. Isabella, as beautiful as her name - Beautiful black out of silver grey parents. Off of Dancing Elk's site her sire, Argenta Granite passes on consistent crimp and long staple length to his multiple, award-winning offsrping. To accentuat...

Dancing Elk's Juliet

HuacayaFemaleMedium Rose Grey
AOA# DOB: 8/9/20173 yrs
When you casually stroll through show grounds at the Nationals and happen to come across the sweetest guy ever named Romeo. Then later are told they did a repeat breed and are hoping for a Juliet. Not only does that happen, but they both come all the way from Montana to join our herd. Juliet in her cria fleece, just wow! At her first show in Denver the halter judge singled her out to check her color in the grey class and said she is a roan color and was in the right class. She noted her conformation and good substance of bone. In walking fleece she received a maximum score in uniformity of color & length, a 7 of 10 in brightness and 7.5 of 10 in uniformity of micron and above average...

Reserve Champion - uniform crias

4-Sight's Crawford

HuacayaHerdsire (Male)Medium Silver Grey
ARI# AOA# 31777018   DOB: 6/9/20155 yrs
Crawford is a nicely built, beautiful, light to medium silver grey guy with a wonderful handle (speaking both of his fleece and disposition) He is the result of two champion parents. His sire, 15X champ RR Gun's Kit Carson is truly still producing some beautiful, award-winning offspring. His EPD's show him to be in the top 10% for uniformity. That uniformity in grey is especially amazing! If you research his pedigree, numerous are banner winners and recent top sellers at select auctions. Crawford was awarded a first place in walking fleece and a Reserve Championship in halter at the 2016 California Classic. Awarded over 23 other beautiful grey alpacas. We showed him as a mature br...

Stunning light silver

Marquis' Lilac Rose

SuriFemaleLight Silver Grey
AOA# DOB: 9/15/20173 yrs
The lovely Lilac Rose - The prior owner of her dam had wanted to name her Grace when she was born, but we already had that name in our herd. So we went with a visual description of her fleece, the color hues of nearly pink purple tips - you had to see in person. Her mother "Mary" is a real doll and this girl was born curious and sweet as can be. We can hardly stand it she is so cute and personable! Motherhood has just seemed to make Lilac even sweeter. She was one of the rare moms that licked her baby from head to toe upon delivery - a matter of fact she licked a few of us months following lol. Witnessing her birth was one of those extremely special moments. Besides textbook delivery...
WI The Admiral

Glistening Goldstar Son

WI The Admiral

SuriHerdsire (Male)Medium Fawn
ARI# AOA# 35326212   DOB: 12/5/20146 yrs
WI The Admiral is a stunning ambassador for his famous daddy, Lazy G'S Accoyo Goldstar . He is tall and well-built, with a robust and dense fleece that still measures 19 microns at age 4. His golden fleece sparkles in the pasture, and his calm nature makes him a pleasure to work with. Admiral had 4 First Place ribbons as a juvenile and went on to do well as a yearling and 2 year old. His mama, Stonebrook's Midnight Lockdown, is jet black, and we're betting on his ability to throw black (although I don't think we'll be disappointed with any fawn crias, either!). His full brother is MMALP Goldstar's VADER, owned by Linda Kondris at Pines Edge Suris. Vader has several black offspring...
Our Destiny's Dream

beautiful grey & sweet temperment

Our Destiny's Dream

HuacayaFemaleMedium Silver Grey
AOA# DOB: 2/10/20156 yrs
We took a long shot breeding a beige dam with no grey lineage to a grey guy. Destiny's Dream made her triumphant debut and all I can think of, is the saying the best dreams are the ones with your eyes wide open. She is cuter in person than in pictures and of course amazing to touch. Both parents have histograms still in low 20s with good uniformity in their adult breeding years. Her histogram came in at 19.7 with a 5.5 SD with a nice comfort factor. She grew up gracefully and is extremely eye catching. She is so photogenic I have a hard time deciding what is the better picture of her to post and my photography skills are not good. If we had a nickel for everyone who inquired about p...

Platinum's Victoria of SNR

Gone but not forgotten

Platinum's Victoria of SNR

SuriFemale (bred)Medium Silver Grey
AOA# DOB: 9/18/20146 yrs
This girl was an extraordinarily nice medium silver grey. She had nice density and set herself above with great luster! Her color referred to as shiny sterling or platinum by those that saw her. Even though her tips are white, she produced a beautiful medium silver grey yarn. Victoria's sire, Platinum Marquis was an astounding grey producer. Her dam also has some nice genetics to her name - Bet on Black by Prince Greystone. We had acquired her just before spring show season and after showing her at the California Classic, we decided not to transport her for anymore shows that year and let her do a little more growing. Needless to say she grew up very nicely and I soon was referr...

Worth the Wait

SuriFemale (bred)Medium Brown, Dark Rose Grey
AOA# DOB: 10/6/20155 yrs
As an entertaining story I'll start with when we bought Worth the wait's mom who was named "Wait for It". The transaction read like a who's on first - what's on second. She was bred to Psylent Knight a beautiful bay black guy that two other females sired by him had taken color Championshps at Futurity. I grew excited looking over pedigrees, this is a slight linebreed on MacGyver (great and gr grandsires) We did not know her due date, our vet happened to check "Wait for it" since all his other crias had been born already and said she thought she had another week or two. Within an hour later, she gave birth. We think she was definitely Worth the Wait - Worthy was born without assistance &...

SoCal Greystone's Marquis

SuriHerdsire (Male)Medium Silver Grey
ARI# AOA# 32791631   DOB: 11/24/20137 yrs
Marquis is a striking, elegant, Medium Silver Grey male that has nice grey lineage both sides of his pedigree. His dam is a MAPACA champion by Platinum Marquis and his sire is twice Futurity Champion and AOBA champion with "too numerous to count" champion offspring, WWR Prince Greystone who has such a beautiful head!! Do an internet search for pictures to fully appreciate both Platinum in his full fleece and Prince Greystone. Two superior grey lines come together in this guy! Marquis, has a beautiful medium silver grey blanket, and an adorable face besides being a tall male (Platinum Marquis line is tall), he has moderate density and luster, with a straight, round, twisting lock.

SuriFemale (bred)White
AOA# DOB: 12/24/2020Under 1 yr
This girl ranks in the top 5% EPDs in most every category. She has had a couple babies born similar to her with a fawn saddle but beautiful shiny locked fleece. We decided to go for unique, a little dabbling with the multi. While she has had crias of light with a fawn saddle bred to both solid white and grey in the past. We decided to breed her to a gorgeous pattern guy Ssilken's Toledo Surprise. While we do not know if two pattern alpacas will give us a solid or not. Either way very anxious to see what Toledo produces. He is a striking pinto pattern from a beautiful black sire GVA Rio Grande, a Psylent Knight son. His dam was a reserve champion at Futurity sired by the beautiful bla...

Platinum's Satin

SuriFemale (bred)Dark Silver Grey
AOA# DOB: 10/10/20146 yrs
A Platinum Marquis Beauty - When Satin was born it was said that she appeared to be a slick black girl and after two weeks her top line started to show silver. After shearing you certainly see more silver spots neck and back hip area. We feel fortunate to own both her and her half-sister, Victoria. Their sire, Platinum Marquis was quite the multiple champion. Adding to that, her dam was a very lusterous fawn that had an AFD of 22.7 - SD of 5 at 5 years old! She also has Torbio in her lineage. We were pretty excited to purchase her thinking of her genetics and coloring for breeding potential. We sent Satin's fleece up for processing and had a really nice yield of yarn off her young, fr...
GLR SUTON

Gorgeous Cinders son!

GLR SUTON

SuriHerdsire (Male)True Black
ARI# AOA# 35218784   DOB: 9/12/20164 yrs
GLR Suton was a male I loved from the beginning. His parentage is a blend of Great Lakes and Windy Hill genetics, and his fleece is just amazing! He had a bit of a rough start, being a slow starter, so we never got to show him. In his first show when still owned by Halo Ranch, he placed 4th is a VERY competitive class, and he was the smallest in the class. We bought him and brought him home after that, and how he is a big, strong framed, heavy-fleeced boy. We will see his first crias now any day. Suton has the stance and attitude of his sire, Cinders. Cinders has produced winner after winner for Great Lakes and now Halo Ranch. Cinders is the 2016 and 2017 AAA Futurity Dark Herd ...

This amazing robust female by Bracito has a pedigree that includes Torbio, Baron Lafite & Peruvian Ramilo - fantastic founding Peruvian imports. At a certain point we realized we had sold a number of Torbio girls without holding some for ourselves. When opportunity knocks, especially on one of these - you swing open the door. Gracie has a larger frame so we bred her to a male with nice conformation and very uniform fine fleece. Gracie delivered a big, strong, male by Sierra Bonita's Maccoyo Maximum. This guy might be right on the mark. Really liking his fleece coming in, slick and greasy feeling already! His whole body had wrinkles and folds making us think volumes of fleece will ...

SIERRA BONITA'S MACCOYO MAXIMUM (MAX): In 2010 Max took the Color Championship at The Futurity as the only shorn animal that had taken a Championship when judged with Full Fleece animals. He has been said to be the Total Suri Male by 7 Judges. His offspring have proven that the Judges are right. His offpring have uniform locks, lots of luster and are very dense. At the Calif Classic 2014 he had 6 offspring entered into the show. Five got 1st place ribbons and 1 got the Color Championship in the only class of Suris to have a Championship. Maccoyo Maximum was evaluated by SHIP classifier, Cheryl Gehly, in February of 2018. She observed that his conformation was perfect 5's, and he...

AWH Storm Front's Lacey

SuriFemale (bred)Dark Brown
AOA# DOB: 9/18/20137 yrs
AWH Lacey has always been darling with a soft black muzzle and super SHINY dark brown fleece. Her luster comes from her wonderful sire AWH Storm Front and the dark, rich color from her beautiful MacGyver/Mahogany Prince mom, La Petite Sirah. We just love the color and the feel of this girls fleece. Our daughter had pointed out Lacey out of all the ones she remembered on the ranch. So we were quite happy when given the opportunity to snatch her up. As she developed she began looking more show-worthy. When Lacey showed the first time, I was taken a bit by surprise when she took a 1st place. I think surprise was from the fact that not only was she in the ring with winners from previous s...

GLR Armani

SuriHerdsire (Male)Light Fawn, Medium Rose Grey, Dark Rose Grey
ARI# AOA# 32138368   DOB: 11/6/201010 yrs
GLR Armani came from the Great Lakes Ranch breeding program. So, it was no shock that he took 3 reserve championships of which were Futurity and the National Alpaca Show. While, Armani originally was registered as fawn color, soon afterward his unique coloring appeared that still makes hearts pitter-patter. He has a regal presence, high luster, nice bone, an amazing freckled face - all with a gentle confidence. There aren't too many full Peruvian grays in the world, and Armani is ROSE gray--a shade of taupe that swirls and stripes his body like a water color painting. He puts a whole new spin on "unusual". While Armani won numerous awards, we think even better yet, he has numerous award-...

Super-duper cute, girl. Truly the most adorable head and face. We must not be alone thinking that because this girl gets photographed all the time by visitors, media, etc. Freedom has a nice frame & fleece. One of her offspring Aslan has fine, nice bright fleece in a beautiful dark brown/red color with that real full face coverage, the kind you have to trim eyes so they have vision. We sheared everything and it grew back in again at 4 years old! We think he is so adorable with his sweet disposition. Because of her vicuna coloring, we decided to roll the dice with a grey sire and low and behold dark, silver-grey she had. Honestly he is one of our most favorite alpacas born he...

Then of course couldn't stop thinking about him. His fawn sire at almost 3 years of age 17.6 micron with 4.2 SD and extremely bright & crimpy. (I wanted to post pictures of both of their fleece shots but couldn't choose a picture to delete of Romeo himself! Needless to say, I pressed the "buy" button. Just a few days later at that GWAS show, he received his 1st blue ribbon. The plan was to shear at the show, but I thought it wouldn't be fair to the hubby to not see him in his full glorious fleece.

AOA# DOB: 9/1/20173 yrs
What do you get when you do a repeat breed of a black dam to a medium silver guy when they had a medium silver cria together the year prior? You get a surprising reminder that grey is unpredictable as the least likely suspected color pops out! As I watched the delivery, I thought wow an all white head, white feet, likely be a tux but as she came out solid white from head to toe - well almost, she has grey skin at feet, dark eyes and eyelids with liner. While not positive she will stay all white, she sure seems to be. She would be a real stealth grey. We thought about naming her sterling or grey gardenia just in case. One of my mom's favorite flowers were gardenias and she was aller...
