So...we've gone to the dark side! Well, maybe...Zophia is a beautiful true black female, but as far back as we can see in her pedigree, she does not have even a single black ancestor. A full 3/4 of her predecessors are firmly on the light side -- well, fawn or lighter anyway! What does it mean? We're not exactly sure! -- other than the incredible character and fineness we see in her fleece is not typical for a black fleeced alpaca. She's a knockout!

We decided we wanted to have a little color in our pasture, and at the same time, we felt that any alpaca we add to our herd should be of a very high quality. What we found is Zophia! Based on her fleece characteristics, even though she is phenotypically a black, we feel certain that whatever offspring she throws, regardless of color, will be an elite fleeced alpaca. Therefore, we're currently planning for her maiden breeding to be with our white 4X Judges Choice and 2017 AOA National Supreme Champion herdsire, Man in the Moon's Peruvian Ganymede. While we think the odds are against us, he has typically thrown the color of dam, and sometimes a couple of shades darker.

We're pleased to add Zophia to our herd...though she won't be physically in our pasture until the end of March. We plan to bring her back with us from the 2021 Buckeye Alpaca Show! Thank you Alpaca Palace for entrusting us with this beautiful girl!
