Dam: AutumnSun's Sweet Patriotic Song

Dam of champions

AutumnSun's Sweet Patriotic Song

Huacaya Bred (Female) White

AOA# 31422710 DOB: 8/27/200814 yrs
With glowing fleece and calm, easy-going personality, Song was born big (~22 lbs at birth and ~90 lbs at 9 mos) & grew at an amazing pace. She is well conformed, with a strong and straight frame even in her maturity. She has been a fantastic mom, just like her own mom and daughters. Song is the dam the you can build whole programs from, one that just keeps producing. She has had predominately white crias for us but that is due to the way she was bred. Don't be fooled by this into thinking t ...

Wolf Den's Dark Secret

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
If you are curious to know... Aika is a 'love song' in Japanese, and it is pronounced 'AH-ee-ka' or if it is easier -- 'EYE-ka'.

Aika is paternal half sister to our Special K, a champion fawn who sired our champion Black Maelstrom. She is out of Song, who has lingering fiber quality and had produced a slew of excellent dams (and an occasional herdsire) for us over the years. Song has produced black more than once.

Her light fawn girl, Fresca, sired by the multiple champion Matrix son Red Granite's Mr. Ben Franklin, boasted a luxurious, shiny fleece with a staple past our hand length and a crimp all the way to her skin! After being shorn, we were really impressed with her regrowth of even more beautiful fiber that was delicious to handle. Fresca, had a worthy show career with banners earned.

Then she honed her breeding skills on her white male cria by the white Accoyo America Seneca Warrior that we sold as a juvie. Aika showed herself to be a really great mom with this second cria that quickly exceeded all the other crias that year in growth rate and overall weight /size.

With Axios, our fawn herdsire with grey lineage, she produced... LF/beige ;). Well, they say that fawns often still have the genetics for grey just with white and fawn, and this 2021 well developed girl is growing very well, under Aika's devoted attention as a juvie and filling out as a yearling. Carolina has the capacity to be a good breeder.

Aika produced another beautiful cria - a black girl by our champion black Dark Secret! Noticing a trend? She produces the color of /towards that of her service sire! Not a bad trait to have known in a breeding program.

NOT SHOWN. WE JUST CANNOT SHOW THEM ALL, AND LF CLASSES ARE GETTING AS COMPETITIVE OR MORE THAN WHITE CLASSES -- AS FAWNS OFTEN HAVE COLOR VARIATIONS TO WORK AGAINST FOR UNIFORMITY.
