Snowmass Beloved Legend

Snowmass Beloved Legend

Now in our 23 year and breeding for our 6th generation, we needed a high quality, unrelated herdsire to continue to make progess in our herd improvement goals and Legend is well qualified. High in our herdsire criteria is the ability to improve AFD uniformity and density and this boy checks those boxes as well as many more.

He has a limited number of breedings available. We also have a great selection of high quality herdsires that are too related to use in our program that are available at this time

Stargazer’s Commander in Chief

Stargazer's Commander in Chief

This boy is like royalty in many ways. Super fine, excellent epds and a little line bred. We are unable to use him in our herd as he is too related. He’s the ideal male to outcross to unrelated females of any color to add persistant fineness and density as well as show quality character. He has great conformation, nice bite and a terrific head style. Plays well with others.

Eagle Valley Eyota

Eagle Valley Eyota

We talk a lot about the results we’ve seen from the Accoyo and Allianza crosses. Eyota is a herdsire we obtained from another small breeder with similar goals.

His first offspring have arrived and we are thrilled with the future herdsire and the three girls he has sired so far.

Stargazer’s Legacy by YO!

Stargazer's Legacy by YO!

Legacy is always our herdsire choice when we want to carry the dams dark color through to her cria along with great conformation and a larger frame. His long staple is a plus when 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 Pablo Picasso

Stargazer's Pablo Picasso

Pablo is a proven herdsire that will increase your production with profitable fiber characteristics and conformation. He is a large, big boned male and reminds me of original Accoyo imports and is ranked among the top of the national herd for density (AFD+FW)

He has a friendly disposition and will be the first to greet you, He is easy to handle and gets along well with others.

His balanced EPD’s are also a sign of how well bred his ancestry has been.

Stargazer’s Champion

Stargazer's Champion

  “Champ” is an Accoyo America Apocalypse son and a high quality herdsire. He is currently unproven as he 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).    His dam, Cybel, is one of only two Accoyo Augusto daughters that we still have in our herd and is still producing some of our best.

Stargazer’s Elijah

Stargazer's Elijah

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

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 YO!

Stargazer's YO!

YO’s  is well proven in all disciplines  and ranks at the top of the best. He is my favorite “go to” male when it matters most.

His offspring exhibit ultimate fineness and robust character in both white and fawn.

YO has represented his sire, AA Apocalypse, in several Get of Sire wins. The prepotency of this genetic line is impressive! YO, along with two additional Apocalypse offspring, had repeatedly swept half of the final placement in the adult white male classes at both Level IV and V shows. More than just lifetime fineness, it is YO’s ability to provide a major increase in fleece weight is what brings him to the spotlight.

Stargazer’s Royal Rumble

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. He help royal grade finesness until almost 10yrs old. He also has the herdsire focus when it comes to breeding.

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.

“GE” brings good things to life!

Golden Explorer’s Grandsire is Accoyo Legacy. Legacy was one of the best imports from the Accoyo herd with a well documented track record of superior offspring. Explorer also brings in the Allianza import Hemingway, with the most recognized record of providing long term fineness that is so important in fiber sales or the show ring.

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.

His first cria have arrived … we expected a lot and he delivered. Betsy is absolutely perfect. She may be one of the best we’ve ever produced. She is abeautiful, MFawn, show girl out of a white dam that has some color in her background. Looks like he is letting color pass through as well.

With our reduced herd size, Chaos is not getting a lot of work. Part ownership is also available for six month possession or more depending on your location.

Stargazer’s Callisto

Stargazer's         Callisto

We have dealt with hundreds of alpacas in the 20+ years we’ve been raising alpacas and Callisto is among the most memorable. (We mostly refer to him as Carlos.) Carlos is among the highest ranking males in the ARI EPD program for elite, lifetime fineness and increased FW (density). Not only is his fiber spectacular, and his conformation superb, he also exhibits the presence and disposition that makes raising alpacas rewarding on a more personal level. He is simply a beautiful male in every regard.

The qualities of the Allianza and Sollocotta cross is coming through beautifully. His pedigree is packed with best of Accoyo, Allianza and Sollocota genetics. He’s out of our champion Accoyo Augusto daughter, Stargazer’s Catena, and sired by Multi-Champion Accoyo America Apocalypse (Hemingway-Nautilus).

Elite pedigree and an accomplished show record, plus top EPD’s. He is ranked at the top (top 20) of all males among the  1% for AFD when combined with the greatest increase of fleece weight (density).

Stargazer’s Antares

Stargazer's Antares

Antares looks so much like his sire he could be his twin. Beautiful head, tremendous coverage, strong bone and very proportional. Delightful conformation along with full and dense coverage. He is a beautiful true black male producing Royal Baby fineness and the density that his multi champion producer 6P Royal Gold was known for.

His EPD trait values are better than most white and fawns and is one of the few true black males That rank among the finest while increasing staple and fleece weight in his offspring.

Part interest is available as our herd size is reduced to a point that we don’t have that much work for him.

Accoyo America Apocalypse “A-Man”

Accoyo America Apocalypse "A-Man"

Apocalypse stands in no ones shadow.  Few few alpacas have been as rigorously tested and proven to produce such outstanding improvements in their offspring. Most notably is his predisposition to provide persistent Royal Grade fineness coupled with remarkable increases in fleece weight/density.  His breeding male and female offspring have been holding remarkable Royal Grade to Grade 0 fineness through 8 -10 years old.

His offspring have great conformation, full fleece coverage with beautiful heads that always do great in the top white and light classes.  We have gone to many shows with three white offspring in the same class and they would all place.(in other words take half the class placements)

By any measure he is an impressive and unique herdsire. His stats provide confidence that your breeding program will be able to compete among the top animals in the country. His offspring are Ultra Royal Fine grade range as juveniles and yearling and remain in the Royal and sub 20 micron range well into their adult years. A great trait to establish in your herd or your next “home grown” herdsire.  Apocalypse is one of the most prepotent offspring of PCA Hem-Acc Nautilus. Starting out with a multiple championship show career Apocalypse has produced significant results as a herdsire.
