Dark Star headed out for a breeding to CCNF Tristan in May, and we are very excited about what they will produce! Tristan has produced quite a few champion offspring, including at least one that has FIVE judges choice banners. Dark Star’s first cria arrived on 5/23/22 -- a healthy 16.3 pound fawn male out of Zagato’s Zumba. Zenon, was awarded 1st Place and Reserve Champion at his first two shows (at 8.6 months old)!!!

Zenon's not breeding quite yet, but we expect that testosterone to kick in soon! Go ahead and reserve your breeding now, though, as his introductory stud fee won't last long, and you definitely need these genetics in your herd! Zenon’s absolutely beautiful! He has gorgeous fleece and spot on conformation with strong bone and a true-to-type head. — his fleece is bright, fine, and full of character! His fleece has an extremely high frequency crimp from skin to tip, with tiny little bundles, and it is oh so fine! His genetics are some of the best, too!

We expect he inherited just the right stuff from his dam, Dark Star, who is a daughter of Ganymede, AOA National Supreme Champion, and his Futurity Judges Choice sire, Alpaca Palace Zagato’s Zumba.

Zenon did well in the 2024 AOA National Show, where he competed in the Bred & Owned Yearling class, garnering 3rd place in competition with Irish Meadows and Red Granite Ranch. Judge Amanda Vandenbosch was quite complementary of him.

In the November 2023 VAOBA Show, Judge Wade Gease placed Zenon in second place above a gorgeous male from Crescent Moon Ranch! He was also in tight competition for the Light Male Reserve Championship.

In the 2023 PAOBA Show, Judge Arturo Pena indicated that the top two males in the class were very close and that Zenon has an extremely fine and consistent fleece all the way down into the belly. He was edged out of that first place and championship due to having slightly less density. The male ahead of him went on to Reserve Champion in 2 of the 3 halter classes and to Champion in one. Judge Pena said to look out for his next fleece — we think we may need to keep him on our own herdsire row to help carry on his grandfather, Ganymede’s, genetics!…and of course, that Zumba guy’s genetics are pretty special too being a son of Zagato.

We have reluctantly decided to offer Zenon for sale, but we would definitely like to retain some breedings.
