Caramela is going to Joshua & Heidi Dallman at Ever After Alpaca Farm. We can't think of a better place for her! Caramela has produced two beautiful females for us out of our 2017 National Supreme Champion male and we’ve bred Caramela back to Man in the Moon's Peruvian Ganymede, with hope for another darker fleeced female.

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 character across the blanket and into her extremities. The judges have recognized the uniformity of her fleece and placed her above alpacas that were finer in micron -- We deemed her worthy to be bred to the 2020 Futurity Judges Choice male, Alpaca Palace Zagato's Zumba -- see more info through her link below.

Caramela's 2019 cria, Calypso (SOLD), was born on 10/16/19, and her fleece is very fine. She is medium brown complete with black points - quite a surprise to us!!. She started out with a "silky" fleece, just like her full sister, Dark Star, who was born in 2018. As Calypso's fleece grew out from it's 2020 shearing, it began developing extremely nice bundles and crimp while maintaining its fineness.

Caramela's 2020 cria, Man in the Moon's Peruvian Mercury, arrived on 11/13/20! We're thrilled with what we see -- good bone, that same silky fleece that has been characteristic of his dam's offspring, and a gorgeous head style! This breeding between his dam and Man in the Moon's Prometheus (his sire out of Zagato) was intended to capitalize on the exceptional staple length and lasting fineness of both, and the architecture we find so appealing in Prometheus' fleece. We'll keep you posted on his link below as we see what Mercury's got!

The fleece characteristics that Caramela allows to pass through are something we don't take for granted. She has impressed us with her long fiber, fleece weight, and fineness as she matured....it still had a staple length of >4" at her 2019 shearing! At 7+ years, her histogram showed an AFD of 22.2 (this is the last sample we had tested), and as a huge majority of Royal Fawn's offspring, we expect she'll carry that fineness for the rest of her life. She also has a nice disposition.

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 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.
