AOA# 32441307 DOB: 4/7/201012 yrs
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.

Alpaca Palace Legend's Rising Sun

Huacaya Herdsire (Male) White

AOA# 35401346 DOB: 5/8/20175 yrs
We’re so excited about this guy! We just got to see two of his first offspring at the Buckeye Fall Fest and they’re beautiful!! Prior to seeing them, we’d been planning to wait until Spring to start breeding him here at MMFA, but…after seeing him and his offspring, he’ll be getting to work this week!!! We only have 3 open females— and we already had plans for them, but those plans have changed… Rising Sun's sire, Snowmass Legend Rising, was a legend in his own right -- with 4 Judges Choice ba ...

Details
Dark Star has a beautiful fleece with excellent length, density and fineness. The judges have recognized the uniformity of Dark Star's fleece across the blanket and into her extremities...and the length of her fleece is another strong point. Her dam was maintaining a very nice length as a 10-year old breeding female, and it measured over 4" long at her eighth shearing! Dark Star’s fleece is very soft and fine with excellent handle. Her crimp style is quite uniform with high frequency and medium amplitude.

Dark Star has been exposed to Alpaca Palace Legend’s Rising Sun for a Fall 2023 cria. We can’t wait to see this offspring's fleece!! Rising sun has incredible matchstick bundles full of a well-defined crimp and brightness, and he's maintaining uniformity and fineness across his blanket. We had the opportunity to see 2 of his first offspring at the 2022 Buckeye Fall Fest and they were stunning! If there had been a third offspring there, he probably would have had a good shot at winning Get of Sire.

Dark Star’s first cria arrived on 5/23/22. He’s a healthy 16.3 pound male out of Zagato’s Zumba. Zenon's long fawn fleece is full of character and it just glows!
