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 ...

Huacaya Bred (Female) Light Fawn

AOA# 31621748 DOB: 7/25/200913 yrs
If you are looking for something really SPECIAL - take a look at this dam! Special K is a daughter of Fossil Ridge Rumaki (PPeruvian Royal Fawn son) many awards to his name and Fossil Ridge's Bit-O-Honey who is a Peruvian Presidio grand daughter. The pairing of these two criated a beautiful little girl that has some of the nicest fleece. When we saw her as juvie, we knew she had great potential.

Maelstrom breedings are again closed to outside breedings.!



Maelstrom has a lineage filled with champion banners, exceptional lineage, and black genetics. His dam is our 7x champion fawn dam 'Special K' and his sire is our 5x black champion 'Dark Secret'. Maelstrom himself is a 13x champion, the 2016 AOA National Fleece Black Reserve Champion, and 2017 AOA National Halter Black Male Color Champion.

His maternal grandsire is champion fawn 'Rumaki', a Royal Fawn son with the bloodlines of Presido and Felix. His paternal grandsire is the well known Snowmass Nova's Dark Quest, son of the famous Snowmass Nova, son of Snowmass Peruvian Casanova. In Maelstrom, you have a list of "who's who" merging into a TRUE BLACK 7/8 Peruvian cornerstone herdsire.

Maelstrom brings together the awesome shine and fine, uniform handle with tight crimp from his dam and Secret's inky-black similarly crimpy, shiny, and consistent fiber. Though both dam and sire have great coverage, Mael's head leans toward his sire's beautiful headstyle that cannot help but catch the eye. He is well conformed and balanced in his frame.

He is showing his merit in the show ring, standing in good company with males of similarly notable bloodlines. He rounded out the 2016 season with first and/or Cc & RC at notable shows like TxOLAN, MOPACA, AOA National, Futunity, and GWAS. Not least the least is his champion banner from the 2017 AOA National Fleece Show and the 2017 AOA Halter Show. He and his pen mate are a dynamic duo, taking halter and fleece shows by storm, gathering up banners as well accolades and intense interest. When they touch him, judges and fellow alpaca farms comment on his density, crimp and buttery feel.

Wow, we thought the fiber on his 2018 and 2019 crias were nice, we are really floored by the crias he has had this year in 2021. We cannot wait to show his girls off this next show season!
