Token Creek Alpacas

Snowmass Escobar’s Marvel

Snowmass Escobar’s Marvel

From Marvel’s pervious owner Lynn Edens of Little Creek Farm:

Congratulations to Elden and Ronelle Harms of Token Creek Alpacas on this new addition to their herd. There are some dams that come along that are just amazing across the board and impossible to pass up–one of these is Snowmass Escobar’s Marvel, dam of our herdsire, Snowmass Elite Hallmark. She’ll be traveling to Wisconsin to be a great producer for Token Creek. After she delivers her cria from Snowmass Crystal Code she’ll be ready to breed to the Token Creek’s awesome herdsire, PacaParadise Peruvian White Walker, I can’t wait to see what that breeding produces!

Check our Marvel’s histogram below and note the test was when she was 12.5 years of age. The cria from the Crystal Code produced an exceptional male, Token Creek Crystal Elevation, aka Eli. Marvel is bred to Paca Paradise White Walker for a July 2024 birth.

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. Trieste is 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, four females and one male to date. We chose Snowmass Accoyo Elite Ice for Sandle’s 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 June 2024 birth.


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. Melody is bred to our stellar white male, Paca Paradise White Walker for a fall 2024 cria.
