Token Creek’s Fantine
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.
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.
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 2020.
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. Her next breeding is included in her sales price.
Token Creek’s Lily
September 2020 update: I can’t believe I’m offering Lily for $3500! Check out her 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.
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.
