TCAFA Peruvian Arctic Wind

Arctic is confirmed pregnant by Bentley’s Accoyo Bravado for an August 2019 birth. I chose Bravado specifically for his strong frame and fiber character. With the stellar genetics Arctic has from her dam and sire (both were top tier breeders at Magical Farm Alpacas) we expect this cria to be outstanding. Be sure to check out her full pedigree at the link below. Arctic Wind is a granddaughter of Peruvian Jeremiah (now deceased), one of the undisputed top males in the United States. Jeremiah has few descendants in white like Arctic Wind.

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 chose Ransom.  With his 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 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 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 our Talisman. She’s showing incredibly tight match stick fleece bundles at just a week of age. Those bundles are everywhere and the luster is just incredible. We’ll for sure be repeating this breeding for a duplicate of this awesome cria. Betty is due August 16,2019. Betty is offered without her cria.

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.

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.

TCAFA Raquela

Raquela is the last Black Jag daughter to be born here at our farm as Jag has been sold and is now residing in New Hampshire. Being a Jag daughter makes her a paternal half sister to Avalon’s Jacob Black, one of if not the most decorated true black herdsires in the country. At last count Jacob has won 19 Champion banners. Raquela is the out of Rachel Alexander, a blue ribbon winner herself. Raquela gave us an exceptional light silver gray male, Token Creek’s Silver Medallion, sired by Ark’s Tsunami. Medallion was sold at about 10 months of age as future breeding male and will be moving to Texas in a couple of months. Raquela birthed this guy (her first cria) without assistance and was a great first time dam. Ask us about a couple of outside males we’re considering for her. As with the purchase of all open females, a complimentary breeding is included.

MFI OMG

August 2018 update: OMG has been confirmed pregnant by Irish Meadow’s Carbonite, the 2016 AOA National Show Black Male Color Champion for a July 2019 birth. The crossing of the Jacob Black, MFI Black Mesquite, and MFI Peruvian Jericho lines should stir the hearts of all black huacaya breeders.

OMG was purchased at one of the last Magical Farm auctions with the purpose of taking her home to breed to Our Peruvian Black Jag, sire of 19 time champion Avalon’s Jacob Black. The result of that breeding is Jag’s Odetta, a very nice female true black that unless someone snatches her up will be bred and kept here at Token Creek. OMG proved to be a good first time dam, we expect the same for subsequent births. Her pedigree is packed with true black, including being slightly line bred on 4Peruvian Matador, one of the most prolific black males and sire of over 250 offspring. Keep breeding her to high quality black and you shouldn’t be disappointed. A breeding to silver gray could be interesting as well. Contact us and let’s talk about what outside males we could bred her to for you as our options for black and gray are limited at the moment. That breeding would be included in her sales price.

Avalon’s Peruvian Morningstar

Here we go again, another Champion offspring of Avalon’s Peruvian Tri-Star! This girl is is a delight, not only to the general disposition of our female herd but delightful in her offspring. We wish we had more crias from her but she came to our farm with a undiagnosed uterine infection which kept her out of production for a couple of years. That was cleared up and her recent cria, Token Creek’s Prince Nova will be part of our 2018 show string. We don’t breed our females just to breed them, or by using just our on farm studs, we search out the best match for them. Our search for a stella white to breed her to continues and we think we have found the correct male for her and will breed her spring 2019. Stay tuned, or better yet buy her now and be part of the male selection process. Her next breeding is included in her sales price.

Token Creek’s Lily

August 2018 update: Lily has be confirmed pregnant by Majestic Peruvian Ransom, an exceptional white son of MFI Peruvian Light Sabre. This is what Light Sabre’s owners have to say about him: “MFI Peruvian Light Sabre is an elite male. He has won multiple Judges’ Choice Awards under some of the best judges in the industry. His conformation is flawless and his body is densely covered with elite fleece. His phenotype is outstanding. It’s no wonder as his sire is the now deceased Mister Antonio, a male unbeaten in the show ring and acknowledged as one of the very best, most densely-fleeced sons of Peruvian Hemingway. His dam is Peruvian Love Bug, who has accoyo Bravado and Augusto in her pedigree.”  Lily is due in July of 2019.

We took a bit of a chance and did a line breeding for Lily and bred her to Tri-Star, her paternal grandsire. The result is an outstanding young male, Token Creek’s London, that we think is simply stunning in fleece quality. Watch for him in the show ring in the spring of 2018. Lily is from a maternal line that produces some of the easiest handling alpacas we’ve encountered, whether here at Token Creek or elsewhere. We like that trait very much. Add to that the proof of production quality and being a great mother and Lily is a great foundation female. I think we’ll be repeating the Tri-Star breeding this spring.
