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 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.

 

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.

 

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

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 was bred to White Walker, the 2020 AOA Walking Fleece show Reserve Color Champion and produced a very nice male in September of 2021. He is so nice that we bred Tawny back to White Walker and is due in September of 2022.

 

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.
