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!

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.

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 PacaParadise White Walker in the fall of 2020.

 

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  be bred to our stellar white male, Paca Paradise White Walker in the fall of 2022.

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 and was subsequently cleared up. Be sure to check her show ring placements below. Morningstar is confirmed pregnant by PacaParadise White Walker for a July 2022 birth

Token Creek’s Lily

Check out Lily’s registration certificate and see the notable names there. Then take a look at her histogram taken at the age of 31 months. AFD of 21.5 should be nice for anyone’s breeding program. But then go to the Alpaca Owner’s Association, login and look up her EPDs. One category she’s in the top 15% bracket and 5 in the top 25%. But notice this: she just missed the 15% bracket buy just a few points in four measurement categories. Yes she’s that nice. Lily is a great mom with easy deliveries, attentive and with plenty of milk for good cria weight gains.

Lily has been confirmed pregnant via ultrasound by our White Walker for a September of 2021 birth. Check out White Walker’s information here and learn why we’re so anticipating this cria.

TCAFA Tawny

Tawny is from a maternal line where you have to be patient and give the offspring time to bloom. As a juvenile she was good but not top tier as her fine fleece didn’t readily exhibit the character needed to excel in the show ring. As a yearling she came into her own and did well for us at both the IL and WI 2017 spring shows. She place second in the 2yr and older halter class at the 2018 AOA National Show. She has very nice fineness and fleece character from base to tip.

Tawny’s first cria is Token Creek’s Fantine the 2020 AOA Halter show brown Reserve Color Champion and yes, she’s that nice. Tawny has been bred to our white male White Walker, the 2020 AOA Walking Fleece show Reserve Color Champion for an October 2021 birth.

 

MFI Sandles

How’s this for a production female? Three offspring, three females, two color champions, the third to be shown in 2021! Sandles comes from one of the best paternal lines ever produced at Magical Farm Alpacas. Her sire is MFI Peruvian Quest and with him comes MFI Peruvian Abundance, Snowmass Millennium, 4Peruvian Legacy and Starr Kahn. Her maternal line includes White Out who left the United States for Australia early in his breeding career. Sandles is a rock solid foundation female that maintains body condition well throughout lactation, and has proven to be a very attentive dam. We wish we could have a pasture full of dams like Sandles.
