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.
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.
