Token Creek Alpacas

Accoyo America Trieste

Accoyo America Trieste

Trieste is an new addition to our farm having recently purchased her directly from Lynn Edens at Snowmass Alpacas. We specifically chose her based on her extreme uniformity (SD) and excellent fineness (AFD) as detailed in her histogram. Follow the link below to view the histogram. She being bred to Accoyo American Storm King is a significant bonus. His EPDs for uniformity are in the top 5% and top 1% for fleece weight for ALL male alpacas in the Alpaca Owners Association EPD program. Those numbers are outstanding. If Trieste doesn’t sell by the birth of this cria, which will not disappoint us in the least, she’ll be bred to our champion white male White Walker. That combination of genetics should produce a stellar cria with excellent SD and fleece weight. Oh, the anticipation!

PacaParadise Peruvian White Walker

Expression of elite fiber characteristics is the hallmark of any elite breeding male, and White Walker checks every one of the boxes.  He sets the standard with a complete package of fineness, density, staple length, and a remarkable degree of uniformity. All this and a solid conformation. Both his dam and sire lines bring these traits through Snowmass Elite Legend, Snowmass Defiance, Accoyo America Tronador, and STLR Angeltron–each with exceptional EPD statistics. What isn’t shown on his histograms and density/skin biopsy report are his well-balanced frame and pleasant disposition.

The EPD information provided shows that White Walker is number six. He actually tied for number five of all male alpacas in the AOA EPD database for standard deviation of average fiber diameter. But it gets better. Of those top five, White Walker is first in EPDs for both staple length and fleece weight. Astute breeders understand the importance of these traits in advancing the fleece quality in their herd. White Walker gives up nothing in average fiber diameter (AFD 18.9µ at 35 months of age), ranking in the top five percent of all males in the EPD program. His first crias have hit the ground here at Token Creek Alpacas and we couldn’t be more pleased. We are excited and eager to now offer him for outside breedings.

The care of your female while at our farm is of utmost importance to us. Our local veterinarian is only 15 minutes away and the University of Wisconsin Veterinary Teaching Hospital is a quick 40-minute drive for those times when a higher degree of expertise is needed. All pregnancies are confirmed on the farm via ultrasound. The breeding fee includes 30 days of boarding after a confirmed pregnancy.

Token Creek’s Fantine

Fantine was awarded the Reserve Color Championship at the 2020 Alpaca Owners Association National Show at only eight months of age. We are so pleased with the fleece quality of this girl. Great brightness, crimp from base to tip with wonderful uniformity of fineness. All of that carries across her full blanket and onto her legs and neck. Her dam is our own bred and raised TCFA Tawny. We went outside our herd in choosing Fantine’s sire and decided on JLFA Millenium’s Peruvian Ventura (aka Vinnie). He’s an eight time champion with award winning offspring, with EPDs in the top 1 and 5%. This guy is stellar and has produced a stellar female in Fantine. We’ll be breeding her to our two time Reserve Champion white male, PacaParadise Peruvian White Walker in the spring of 2021.

Token Creek’s Cosette

Cosette was incredibly thriving as a cria, having what I think is the highest weaning weight of any alpaca born here at Token Creek Alpacas, a whopping 90 pounds (at 7 months of age)! We love those robust youngster. She has continued to be just that while sporting a very nice frame and fleece. Her dam is our own MFI Sandles who births some of the best offspring we see here, all females to date. We chose Snowmass Accoyo Elite Ice for Sandle’s last breeding that produced Cosette. Both the dam and sire lines are heavy with white and we were surprised with Cosette being light fawn but we’ll take it when it comes with the fleece she has. Nice brightness, long staple and wonderful bundling. Cosette is bred and confirmed pregnant via ultrasound to our PacaParadise Peruvian White Walker for a May 2022 birth.

 

Token Creek Derby’s Julep

Julep is the daughter of our Judge’s Choice and Color Champion foundation dam Token Creek’s Derby Girl. We leased her sire, Bravado’s Allianza Medallion back in 2010 to bring uniformity to a few of our females and that’s exactly what he did. Take a look at Julep’s histogram at the link below to get a sense of her fleece qualities. We sold Julep a couple years ago and through a change of circumstance with the buyers, we were able to purchase her back. Julep is confirmed pregnant by our Paca Paradise White Walker for an October 2021 cria. Julep is a perfect light fawn color and will bring very correct conformation and high quality fleece qualities to your breeding program.
