AOA# 35401346 DOB: 5/8/20177 yrs
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 fleec ...

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)!!! He’s growing well in both fleece and conformation, and is now available as a Jr Herdsire. If he sells, we'll reserve some breedings. If not, he'll stay here and we'll prove him out. Everything about this boy is stellar. See his page for more information. Dark Star produced a beige male cria, Pollux, o ...

Ask a question
Think this guy might be a good one! Initially, it was hard to ascertain density, but after just a few weeks it’s very apparent in the fleece just next to his skin — very fine with excellent handle and quite dense relative to fineness. Pollux's fleece is what I'd describe as "silky" but so was his dam's when she was born, as were all of the offspring from his dam's maternal line. They tend to take some time to develop, but that second fleece is usually filled with lots of crimp.

His sire, Legends Rising Sun, has incredible 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!!!

Thank you, Lori Tanner, for your purchase of Pollux!
