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 brown 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.
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 July 2023 cria. Julep is a perfect light fawn color and will bring very correct conformation and high quality fleece qualities to your breeding program.
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.
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. Her AFD of 21.5 should be useful in anyone’s breeding program. Then go to the Alpaca Owners’ Association website, log in and look up her EPDs. In one category she’s in the top 15% bracket and 5 in the top 25%. But notice this: she just missed the 15% bracket by 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.
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.
