Can't say enough good things about this boy! We’re so excited about him! We just got to see two of his first offspring at the Buckeye Fall Fest and they’re beautiful!! (His son, Alpaca Palace Superman, has 3 Championships as a 2-year old. His daughter, Alpaca Palace Girlfriend, also has a Championship as a 2-year old. A few weren't shown, and he only has 6 on the ground so far due to a divorce.) Sunny's fleece is amazing at almost 6 years old! His 2023 histogram (as a 6-year old!) puts his fleece stats at 18.5 micron with only 0.4 % over 30 microns and an SD of 3.8!

“Sunny” has the softest fleece I may have ever sunk my hands into — the soft staples break into incredible little matchstick bundles full of a well-defined crimp and brightness, and he's maintaining uniformity and fineness across his blanket. His histogram at 5.9 YEARS old is phenomenal with a Grade 1 fleece! 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. And, we got to see a 3rd offspring at the 2023 Buckeye Fall Fest (belonging to none other than Randy Strong, and Barb Sodums of Strong Shepherd Alpacas)! Randy assisted in the herd dispersal of Alpaca Palace, and he now says we got a steal of a deal on Rising Sun. I agree. Rising Sun is making phenomenal offspring!!!

The whole reason we decided to purchase Sunny is that we have first hand experience in a breeding to his sire that produced one of our best foundation females. We've bred her dam to Sunny knowing that the whole genetic package is a powerhouse -- and Sunny's dam brings in the amazing genetics of Houdini. Based on what we’ve seen in Sunny and his sire's offspring, we expect excellence in Rising Sun’s future offspring! We're pretty sure he'll produce offspring that are able to produce the kind of fleece we all want even as they age.

Rising Sun's sire, Snowmass Legend Rising, was a legend in his own right -- with 4 Judges Choice banners, including one at the 2015 AOA National Show -- a National Supreme Champion! Judges commented "...this is what we're breeding for..." Advanced fleece, strong frame. Rising Sun's dam, Houdini's Vixen, was a Champion female who produced champions, and she carried an AFD of less than 18 microns, with a CF of 98.9 at 5 years old -- that's lasting fineness!
