Full Peruvian
Sire: Pucara Kahuna's Accoyo Killara - SOLD! | ARI# 31721202  | Beige 
Dam: ATV Enhanced | ARI# 31579223  | Beige 
Service Sire:     

When we first saw this pretty girl as a newborn cria, we thought her fiber looked like the morning sun on a frosted landscape. Hence her name, Sparkling Frost! This girl is a direct result of quality genetics in her heritage -- filled to the brim with "Who's Who" alpacas in the suri industry. Her champion dam, ATV Enhanced, was sired by full Peruvian half-Accoyo ATV Zephyr and his Ppperuvian Sedoso's bloodline.

Frost's sire is the full Peruvian/Accoyo white herdsire, Pucara Kahuna's Accoyo Killara, a son of the incomparable Pucara Kahuna. Alan Cousill from Pacura stated about Killara,He's just so bloody good. Thick with fleece. Greasy with luster. Ropey thick locking. Gorgeous head and sturdy frame. Is it any wonder with Kahuna as the sire..?!"

Frost did well in the show ring. Her first show was a big jump into a heavily competitive level 5 Great Western Alpaca Show (GWAS), and she did awesome! When we saw the class of 10 alpacas walk in, we started to sweat at the impressive alpacas showing! The 1st, 2nd and 3rd alpacas were from top notch programs ($$$) of exceptional genetics. Our little Frost beat out 6 other alpacas and was standing shoulder to shoulder with top breeding programs in the 'big leagues'! In her second show, she easily earned the blue ribbon and judge David Balboza's praise for consistent locking throughout the blanket and to the skin. She gathered blue ribbons and judge's comments like: "very good luster throughout!", "nicely balanced and proportioned and tracked true when walking", "beautiful luster all the way through", "eyecatching", "locking coming back well".

Frost's first cria, sired by our champion dark male Bosco, was a beautiful dark brown male with a glowing luster and richly colored locking. Frost took very good care of him and he was alert and strong, but he was lost unfortunately the next day. However, we had a huacaya maiden having trouble bonding with her first cria the same day, and Frost stepped in and adopted it! Not one to look a gift horse in the mouth, we thanked Frost for her altruistic attitude and welcome our cross-breed family to the herd! Frost is an excellent dam with great mothering skills!

Unfortunately, the next year, she had a terrible dystocia where the cria died en utero and we almost lost her. She may have scar tissue and occassionally drains, but the vet doesn't think she has an infection. Her life is uneventful now and she is otherwise an easy-keeper. We keep her tail fiber trimmed and clean her if she drains. ** We aren't looking for a profit on her but want her to go to a good home - hence the disclosure for proper care.**
