PacaParadise Peruvian White Walker

PacaParadise Peruvian White Walker

What makes a male a top tier breeding male? While there are differences of opinion in the answers among alpaca owners, there a few a consistent criteria:

He, his sire, dam and close relatives must have great histogram stats.

His pedigree must include proven ancestors in the first, second and ideally the third generation.

He should have cria on the ground proving his prepotency for traits of interest

White Walker certainly checks the boxes on the first two criteria. We’re highly confident he’ll check the last box but since he can’t right now, we’re offering a introductory breeding fees. Contact us to discuss what the discount can be for you.

 

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 will be a great female to breed to our up and coming white champion PacaParadise Peruvian White Walker.

Token Creek’s Bella

What do you get when you cross the well proven lines of Jeremiah’s Peruvian Jumanji with Crystal Spartan? You get Token Creek’s Bella, a very nice brown female with Alpaca Owners Association EPDs in the top 25% for two categories. She should produce very nice offspring when bred to great males, which is all we do here at Token Creek Alpacas. Bella handles nicely, has great eye appeal with her deep rich color and is well matured for her first breeding. As with all breeding stock sold at Token Creek Alpacas, financing is available.

Token Creek’s Sanda

Sanda is the daughter of multi champion and get of sire first place winner Avalon’s Peruvian Tri-Star. Tri-Star has the very desirable trait of maintaining a fine fleece well into adult years. At almost 12 years of age his AFD was an incredible 19.7 microns, virtually unheard of in a breeding male of that age. Sanda ranks in the top 25% in six EPD categories. Yes she’s that nice. As a cria she sustained an eye injury at less than a month of age. She was treated locally by our veterinarian as well as ophthalmologists at the University of WI School of Veterinary Medicine. Healing was very good but a blue scar remains on the eye. The only thing it affects is her sales price and she’s listed well below what her price would be if she hadn’t sustained this injury. As with all maidens sold at Token Creek Alpacas, she sells with our full reproduction warranty.

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 will be bred in the fall of 2020 to our Paca Paradise White Walker for a fall 2021 cria. Julep is a perfect light fawn color and will bring very correct conformation and high quality fleece qualities to your breeding program.

Avalon’s Peruvian Triumph

Light fawn son of Tri-Star. Triumph is a two time reserve banner winner and well proven with nine offspring. All those we’re personally assessed have uniformly fine fleeces with wonderful handle. Taffeta, his dam, is one of our most prized foundation females.

Triumph is a handsome male: true to type with nice balance and movement. At his first show as a juvenile, judge Amanda Vandenbosch described his fleece as having high frequency crimp and as showing fiber that is “highly aligned and organized” in a way not typically seen in a young male. This unique fleece carries evenly across his frame. According to judge Vandenbosch, fleeces of this style are likely to be characteristic of alpacas that retain fiber fineness as they age. This is a trait we are interested in promoting in our breeding program and have have been watching Triumph’s development with special interest.

Special pricing is available for champion females, multiple breedings, drive-by, and mobile breedings.

Avalon’s Peruvian Tri-Star

 

First the Back Story

A little back story is needed on Tri-Star. From 2000 through 2003, Donna Pearre and Carole Van House at Avalon Farm Alpacas bred Avalon’s Peruvian Aristocrat to Avalon’s Peruvian Celestial Dream three times. The results of those breedings produced three stellar breeding males: Avalon’s Aries, Polaris and Tri-Star. Polaris was purchased by Sue Evon at Sleeping Monk Farm. Her words on Polaris from February of 2018:

“Our first champion herdsire Avalon’s Peruvian Polaris crossed over the Rainbow Bridge last night to join many of his herd mates. Polaris was the herdsire who put Sleeping Monk Farm Alpacas on the map. He sired many champions for us, including Sleeping Monk Farm Peruvian Arlo, our first AOBA National Reserve Champion and then our 7 X Champion, The Monk’s Peruvian Oliver.”

In 2002, Cory and Erin Klement of Summer Hummer Camelids visited Avalon Farm Alpacas with the intent of purchasing a previously identified male. The short story is they took a look at the male they came to see as well as Aries and bought Aries, a juvenile, on the spot. He went on to be a show ring championship and most notably to produce SHC Moonlight Rendezvous. Julie Skinner, previous owner of Snowmass Alpacas, purchased Rendezvous at auction who became “one of the most successful ‘outside’ dams in the history of the Snowmass herd”. Rendezvous is the dam of Snowmass Oblivion, arguably one of the top herdsires in the Snowmass herd since Quechua.

The only male alive of those three full siblings is Avalon’s Tri-Star. He’s up there in age at a little over fifteen years but still available to impart his proven genetics into your herd. (Read more below)

General Description

Another winner from our Accoyo/Allianza cross female, Celeste, and our 1/2 Accoyo Royal Fawn son, Aristocrat. Tri-Star is the third in a line of color champions, and he carries on this proud tradition. Like his older brothers, Tri-Star’s bright white fiber has a pleasing soft hand organized in crimpy bundles that cover him from topknot to toe. His typey, conformationally correct frame completes the picture, making him a “complete package”.

At his first show, the 2004 GMAF, Tri-Star won the blue even though he had JUST turned 6 months old. And then, again, at the NIAE he took the blue as the youngest in the white yearling class. Judge Shannon McConnell stated that his balance & proportion were excellent & that his fiber was extremely bright and consistent in lock, bundles and fineness from front to back. Later, in that same show, he took 2nd in the Bred and Owned Yearling class in a competitive field of 4 NIAE Color Champions! Once again, he was the youngest in the class!

Tri-Star has continued to follow in the footsteps of his Color Champion brothers, earning two Color Championships, a Reserve Color Championship, and numerous blue ribbons. At the MOPACA Invitational, Maggie Krieger selected Tri-Star from a field of 60 quality white males to be the Color Champion, citing his “elite fleece” as something we should all be breeding to achieve.

Special pricing is available for champion females, multiple breedings, drive-by, and mobile breedings.

Avalon’s Majestic Peruvian Talisman

Talisman is a beautiful dark fawn son of the well known Jeremiah’s Peruvian Jumanji from Majestic Meadows and a two time Reserve Color Champion. His overall conformation is excellent, including an upright posture, perfect bite, and handsome head. Judge Amanda VandenBosch commented on the excellent soft handle of his fiber and the overall great degree of brightness. Be sure to check out his histogram at four years of age, the link is below. We have a few offspring from Talisman and all have shown great uniformity and brightness. Bring some color and brightness to your breeding program with Talisman.

Special pricing is available for champion females, multiple breedings, drive-by, and mobile breedings.

TCAFA Gold Medal Simone

Simone was born during the time Simone Biles was winning Olympic medals in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. She’s the result of breeding our best white female, Sandles, to one of the most outstanding white males available in the US, Avalon’s Peruvian Tri-Star. We knew on her first day this female was special with her incredible fleece architecture and coverage. At her first show she placed fifth and while we were disappointed we knew she was better than that. A few weeks later she place 1st in her juvenile class and then went on to be chosen as the white female color champion! She clearly stepped up and proved she was worthy of her namesake.

Simone will be bred to Paca Paradise White Walker in the fall of 2020.
