Don't be fooled by the price on this 3-in-1 package. It reflects our need to thin the herd in anticipation of all of the crias we are expecting in 2020, and the fact that we are breeding for light and white alpacas. Caramela's medium brown female cria out of National Supreme Champion, GANYMEDE, was born on 10/16/19. Caramela's been exposed to Man in the Moon's Prometheus, a Champion male out of Sunset Hills Zagato with the Elite Maximus on the dam side.

Caramela's fleece characteristics are something we don't take for granted. We offer Caramela with the hope that her daughter, Dark Star, will carry forward these great attributes. I can say that we won't part with both; if one sells, the other will certainly stay! Caramela has impressed us with her incredibly long fiber, fleece weight, and fineness at this age.

Her medium brown FEMALE cria (complete with black points!!) out of Man in the Moon's Peruvian Ganymede is going to be a beauty. She's starting out with a "silky" fleece, just like her full sister, Dark Star, that was born in 2018. From experience, we know this fleece will develop into something very nice -- show string quality! Come see Dark Star at the 2019 VAOBA EXPO to see what we mean.

Caramela's fleece has an excellent handle, and is uniform and consistent, on a solid frame. At 9 years young, Caramela still carries a fleece you just want to sink your fingers into. And...it still has great staple length of >4" at her 2019 shearing! She also has a nice disposition. At 7+ years, her histogram showed an AFD of 22.2, and as a huge majority of Royal Fawn's offspring, we expect she'll carry that fineness for the rest of her life.

Her 2018 cria out of Ganymede is gorgeous! Ganymede's Dark Star of MMFA arrived on 8/30/18, and she is a beautiful medium fawn female with fleece that's exhibiting excellent fineness, brightness, and character across the blanket and into her extremities. Dark Star won 2nd place in her first (& only, so far) halter show! -- see more info through her link below.

Caramela's sire, PPPeruvian Royal Fawn, was a full Accoyo male with a history of passing on his fine-fibered genetics to his 406 offspring. Consistent show winners and high sellers, his progeny boast 108 known champions and 329 blue ribbons in every solid color group. Hand selected by the late Dr. Jim Vickers, Royal Fawn was the only light fawn Accoyo ever exported from Don Julio Barreda’s herd. According to Julio Barreda, Royal Fawn ranked as one better than he had ever produced at Estancia Accoyo in Peru. PPPeruvian Royal Fawn was the 1999 and 2000 "Get-of-Sire" winner at the AOBA National Show, and record breaking highest selling male in alpaca history in October, 2005.
