Stargazer’s Pablo Picasso

Pablo is a masterpiece! He is an ideal herdsire capable of improving herd genetics that produces profitable fiber characteristics and conformation. Pablo (aka Max) also has a gentle personality easy to handle and gets along well with others.

He has a large, solid Accoyo style frame not commonly found along with his fineness and fleece characteristics in one package. He brings a great background of both Accoyo and Allianza imports.

His balanced EPD’s are also a sign of how well matched this boys ancestry had been.

Stargazer’s Symphony

We are now at the point in our retirement process that we are faced with reducing our best females.

Symphony is everything you need in a female if you are looking to produce top herdsire offspring. She has produced sub 18 micron afd fleece production with low SD.   Her EPDs are balanced and among the best of the best.

As the product of both our Royal Gold and Apocalypse lines, she is being sold open as we only have males that are pretty closely related.  It’s not that one of our males couldn’t be used if you are interested in a linebreeding/outcrssing protocol.

Symphony comes with full reproduction guaranty.

Stargazer’s Skywalker

Skywalker will cover all the bases in your breeding program.  He’s at the top of the National herd for multiple traits that will result in offspring that will be competitive in the show ring and fiber production.

He has a easy, manageable temperament and gets along well enough to be housed with other breeding males.  We don’t get fooled often, but thinking he was beige when he was born, to today where, if he were shown, would probably fall into the medium fawn category. Regardless of color we couldn’t be more pleased with him and always love getting our hands on him doing herd maintenance. He has never disappointed us. He is exquisite in Fiber characteristics, conformation, structure and temperament.

 

Stargazer’s Champion

  “Champ” is an Apocalypse son that is too related for us to use in our herd. His pedigree on both sides is the best of the best. He has a significant Hemingway and Accoyo influence that provide the basis for this males phenomenal EPDs. Almost all of Champs EPD traits tested in the top 5% – 10% range of all male huacayas.  Most significantly is his ability to improve fineness along with a notable increase in fleece weight (through density).  Only a few dozen white males in the EPD program can claim a better ratio. His sale price is less than half of what we think we should sell for. Champ’s sire, AA Apocalypse, who has been one of the most prepotent proven herdsires providing the greatest amount of improvement in one generation. His dam, Cybel, is one of only two Accoyo Augusto daughters that we still have in our herd and still producing some of our best.

This is a perfect male to put over an entire herd which will result in the greatest amount of improvement along with trait balance to simplify mating future generations.

Stargazer’s Legacy by YO!

Legacy has one of the longest staple lengths we’ve seen. (see neck fleece picture) Bred to dense females the offspring will be among the best of the best in total fleece weight. He would be the ideal male for a breeding program that values a show style head with a strong presence and also improving EPD’s

Multiple top Accoyos; Legacy, Caligula, Vengador and El Mustachio as well as Hemmingway lineages

Stargazer’s Botticelli

Sired by Apocalypse, Chelly, has proven genetics that will be a great asset to your breeding program. He is ranked in the top 200 males for improving AFD fineness AND increasing FW as well as top 1% for SF anf Curve.

We have many very high-quality males that are too related to use in our herd. Chelly is for sale at $5000 or trade for an above-average female of almost any color.

Stgzr’s Golden Explorer

“GE” brings good things to life!

Golden Explorer’s Gsire, Accoyo Legacy, is well documented as one of the best imports from the Accoyo herd to bring in a solid frame with a dense colored fleece. The Hemingway line brought in from his sire provides long term fineness that is necessary to compete in the show ring or retail fiber sales.

When looking through his pedigree you’ll see a progression in each generation of genetic improvement provided by the best available genetics.

GE’s solid structure and head style are easily recognized as the ideal style sought after in every herd. There’s no doubt that GE will provide outstanding results in his offspring.

Stargazer’s Elijah

We are absolutely thrilled with the results of this deep Alianza and Accoyo cross-bred herdsire. Prepotent, homozygous genetics for persistent ultra-fine fleece production and density. His fleece is a great example of how nice alpaca can be.

Elijah meets all the qualifications of an elite herdsire. He places #4 among beige males for improving AFD along with increasing fleece weight. Since Eli is the combination of our two best producing bloodlines, we simply don’t have many eligible females to pair him up with.

His dam and grand dam on both sides of his pedigree are National Blue Ribbon winning dams. Besides show quality genetics, this proven herdsire is among the top 1-2% for improving offspring fleece quality across many traits.

Stargazer’s Royal Rumble

RRumble is a rare find for a herdsire. He is one of the best 6P Royal Gold’s males we produced in our breeding program and that says alot. At 6 years old RRumble is still testing at only 18.3 afd. He also has the herdsire focus when it comes to breeding. He’s  easy to handle, but will be the alpha male if left for him to decide in a group of males.

His sire Royal Gold (RG), came in among the last of imports from Peru. The most heavily screened and rigorous of the importations. RG originated from the Antacalla region. He made his way to our breeding program after quickly making a name for himself as a herdsire for one of the top importers. His offspring were easy to pick out in the auction catalogs as they all had his great head style and presence. Royal Gold’s persistent fineness has also carried through to his offspring.

Rumble could be used for color as well. His sire produced a lot of color and had the ability to pass on his fineness to black and modern gray crias. Antares (RG x Arwen) is our black herdsire that has replaced RG for our dark program.

Rumble’s dam, Bella Bianca is a National Blue Ribbon white. Her sire, El Bello,  was one of Hemingway’s most notable male progeny. All of Bella’s crias have been among the best in our program. They have all been recognized as top show winners with sought after fleeces. We have always had great anticipation waiting for her to deliver.

The following test results demonstrate the numerous 1% EPD rankings RRumber has earned.

Stargazer’s Celeste

Celeste is a wonderful example of excellent conformation, highly developed fleece and supporting EPD’s.

Her dam and sire are among the best in our herd as are her offspring.

Stargazer’s Emily

There is good news and bad news when it comes to Emily.

The good news is that it will take very little effort to select a worthy service sire that will help improve her offspring in that the males will be easy to identify.

The bad news is their aren’t many males that will meet her high standards.

A draw back when you are dealing with breeding among the best of the best is that one would almost hope for male offspring as her female offspring will be even harder to match up to a service sire. (Sounds like the equivalent problem as having too pretty, too well bred or too much money.)

Stargazer’s Carma

Carma is a solid foundation female with very balanced EPD trait Valuesand we expect her production to be predictably spectacular. Her fleece is extremely fine with a high degree of character and uniformity. She has a solid ancestry that combines the best of the Accoyo and Allianza. Her dam, Capella, is a champion white and has been one of our top producers that we is still in our breeding program. Carma will bring good things to your herd.

She is a solid producer among the top females in the US.

Stargazer’s Curley Sue

Improving or maintaining fiber fineness in our herds is always a factor in our decision process of making breeding and purchasing selections. The down side to that is without equal attention being paid to fleece weight production, you may be handicapping your future herd fiber production. With only a 2 micron improvement if fiber diameter fleece weight production will drop approximately 25% without an increase in density and/or staple length.

Curley Sue, an offspring of a couple of our best producers, she has been ranked among the top 25 females for the combined index value of improving both AFD Fineness and Fleece Weight. That puts her close to the top 5% of the top 1% of almost 45,000 alpacas used in the 2016 EPD report. Curley Sue is a super fine, dense and show winning female that will outperform 99.5% of all females with a genetic profile.

Everybody’s bottom line is affected by the value of the males produced. Curley Sue is a female that will produce useful herdsires and be a valued member to your breeding program. A show quality female with superb genetics … true seedstock.

Her full brother Callisto is on our herdsire row and is one of the top males in the EPD program to improve fineness with the greatest increase in fleece weight as well.

Rumbles Zakai

I love this boys fleece and Genetic profile!

His handle is superb and the density is phenomenal. This level of fineness will likely last a lifetime. His sire, Royal Rumble is one of the most persistently fine herdsires anywhere. He has remained under 18 micron so far up through 7 years of age. Zakai’s dam, Zoey, is the result of one of our best sires and dams, YO and Catena.

His EPd’s indicate the same as our expectations as he ranks among the top 1%-5% in the same traits as his lineage.

Stargazer’s Zion

Zion has a solid frame with an extremely dense fleece that exhibits advanced architecture. His ancestry is among the best of the best, originating from the Accoyo and Allianza imports. His EPDs revel he is solidly in the top 10% for almost every trait. His balanced rankings also provide insight into how well matched and homozygous his ancestry has been.

A rare combination at his level of fineness, Zion’s contribution to his offspring will be more dense and produce more fleece than anybody in this price range.

Zion’s purpose in life is to help the grower looking for profits from raw fiber or retail yarn  sales.
