AOA Color Champion in 2016 fleece and in 2017 Halter and Fleece! He has more wins that can be counted, but check his show results below to see his consistency!

We had been looking for quite a while for that one special black male to add to our herd in complement to our Dark Secret / Black Maestrom line. Fate smiled on us when we saw Stradivaruius as a juvenile to add to our program. Even in his tui tips, we knew he was the one and acted immediately. Even with our experience and confidence, we could not help be pleased with the confirmation of our opinion by his exceptional show results.

A true black herdsire, Stradivarius is a 26x fleece and halter black champion with champion bloodlines in his pedigree which hails back to both Snowmass and Patagonia, through his sire Snowmass Andean Midnight and dam Patagonia's Simone (pivotal farms that were pioneers in the industry). His show wins include AOA National Show Halter Champion, AOA National Show Invited Champion Champion, and 3x AOA National Fleece Show Champion.

We have been very selective with breedings to him, closed to outside breedings, to ensure the best case scenarios in most situations for black offspring. From this, 83% of the time he produced black (TB & BB) and 100% of the time, when bred to black dams. When bred to dams of other colors he produced black 43% of the time but darkened the cria 100% of the time.

His spectacular offspring include AutumnSun's Aislyn, who won banners at the AOA National Fleece show both as a Juvenile in 2021 for us and as a 2yr old in 2023 for her new owners, Carol and Christian Howard of Cinco C Alpacas and Lynn Edens of Little Creek Alpacas. His son, AutumnSun's Peacekeeper, took a champion placing as a 3 year old breeding stud for his new owners in Austria, Oberstein Alpacas! Both Aislyn and Peacekeeper are making their own beautiful black crias for their new herds.

Stradivarius is closed to outside breedings. He is not available for sale unless with the purchase of entire herd; in that event, no breedings will be allowed until he is paid off in full.
