Huacaya Herdsire (Male) True Black

AOA# 31620901 DOB: 8/10/200913 yrs
At Autumn Sun Alpacas, we know that is no secret that this true black herdsire is an all-around package that you will want to cover any dam, light or dark colored! Secret is a black that had no fading at his tips or interspersed white fibers when he was showing (he's getting a few 'old man' white hairs now). This isn't surprising with a lineage that includes notable black sires like Othello, recently deceased, and Snowmass Nova's Dark Quest. With his distinctive head and leg coverage, along ...

Details
Aerie has the grey colorage we want to promote -- the lavender-grey of of early morning light across the Rockies.

Her fiber is very fine with great uniformity and consistency between the light and dark fibers. Her crimp is a low amplitude / high frequency that gives lively energy to yarn made from it. This is not surprising, as the granddaughter of ATV Addonnis, 14x Champion in his day (which was amazing in that time!)!

She was bred to Mile High Deacon Grey, 14x Champion grey male for her first cria! We were so excited that she produced a lavender grey girl in her spitting image (well, except for her definitive brown leg!) Gracie had her first cria last year, a lovely rose grey girl!

Aerie was bred to another great grey male for a 2015 black girl, our lovely Primrose. Primrose is one close to our heart and will likely stay at our farm for her life. On top of it, she makes wonderful fibered crias!

For her 2016 cria, she produced a classic rose grey girl from Avatar. This one is the best yet! We named her Loraleigh. Loraleigh has gone on to produce her own grey cria.

When bred to the stunning Granite's Bay Royal Steel she produced a lovely DRG male. If you have not seen Steel in person, put your hands on his fleece, you should! He has 'all that' in fineness, shine, crimp, organization, density, and LOTS of coverage. His CMRG boy by Aerie was a little off the mark but had great fineness and shine. Siderite has moved on to his own future at another farm.

This year, by US Steel, Aerie had another grey boy, this one a classic MSG. We are smitten with this boy and each day he gets better looking in his fiber.

For her 2021 cria, Aerie is bred to our Dark Secret since he has proven to produce grey when bred to grey. Here's hoping that Aerie returns to her 'girl production' because we love her 2020 boy and are already bursting at the seams with awesome grey male offspring this last year.
