Token Creek’s London

Token Creek’s Prince Nova

Nova is showing the fleece qualities we value here at Token Creek Alpacas: uniformity of micron and fineness. Add to that a great staple length, even for a youngster and we think this guy has a great future. He solid white, no spots or fading fawn anywhere on him. Watch for updates as he’ll be part of our show string this spring (2018).

Token Creek’s Silver Medallion

Combine together: genetics from Our Peruvian Black Jag (sire of 19 time champion Jacob Black), Peruvian Tri-Star, Emerald Farm Orlando Cloud via Ark’s Tsunami and a few other notables and what’s the outcome? A very nice light silver gray male, Token Creek’s Silver Medallion. This guy has incredible coverage, staple length and fineness. Should he stay right here at Token Creek and be used on some  of our black production females or sold to the breeder looking to add great gray and black genetics to their program? We are very open to both and at this point would seriously consider a co-ownership arrangement. Contact us and let’s see what sort of arrangement we can work out.

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

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 numberous 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. 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.

Summer 2016 update: We now have two Talisman offspring on the ground here at Token Creek Alpacas, a female out of Star Dust and a male from Derby Girl. The fiber on each of them is just want we breed for, crimp definition, brightness and uniformity. Both are show ring bound, stay tuned for updates in 2017.

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

TCAFA Gold Medal Simone

August 2019 update: Simone is confirmed pregnant by Majestic Peruvian Ransom. We searched quite awhile for the correct male for Simone and with Ransom’s density and staple consistency from top to bottom, we think this mating will produce an  exceptional cria. Simone is due in July of 2019.

Simone, born during the time Simone Biles was winning Olympic medals in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, is 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 in 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.

 

TCAFA Stardust Melody

It took a bit of time for Melody to show the fleece quality we expected from her. As a cria and juvenile, fleece architecture was certainly there but not showing the consistent crimp we expected. Her second fleece is very nice, showing the base to tip zipper crimp we had hoped to see. That display of fleece character earned her a first place out of eight entries in the fawn yearling class at the 2018 AOA National Show. She is growing well and she’ll probably be bred to our stellar white male, Tri-Star. We want his retained fineness incorporated across the appropriate young females in our herd. A Tri-Star match with Melody should not disappoint us or a new owner.

TCAFA Best Bet

August 2018 update: Stunning! That’s the reaction every day when we take a look at her female cria by the breeding to Talisman. She’s showing incredibly tight little bundles at just a week of age, those bundles are everywhere and the luster is just incredible. We will for sure be repeating this breeding for a duplicate of this awesome cria. We expect Betty to be due in August of 2019. Check back here for updates or better yet, inquire with us for the latest on this rebreeding. Betty is offered without her cria but pregnant by Talisman.

Best Bet, aka Betty here on the farm, is a very nice young female, the result of crossing some of the best in the former Magical Farm Alpacas herd. Her sire is the 2010 Futurity Color Champion Crystal Spartan and dam is Peruvian Better in Black, now part of the well known breeding operation at Majestic Meadows in OH. Betty is lightly line bred on 4Peruvian Matador, one of the most prolific foundation black males in the nation, with over 250 registered offspring. Her fleece is uniform across her blanket with good extension. She’s bred to our Peruvian Talisman with a 7/24/2018  due date. This will be another cira met with high anticipation.

TCAFA Bright Starlight

Starlight is one of a growing number of girls on our farm sired by our exceptional white male, Avalon’s Peruvian Tri-Star. Be sure to click on and check out her histogram, taken at 39 months of age. The highlights are: AFD 20.7, SD 3.8 and CV 18.3.  We’re going for color from Starlight and  bred her to our Jumanji son, Talisman for an early fall 2019 cria. We’re confident in crossing this TriStar daughter with the Jumanji line and this is a highly anticipated cria. She’s priced at a bargain right now which will go up in the summer of 2019.
