Starshire’s Aoife (pronounced EE-fa -- a great Celtic name for a girl born on St. Patrick’s day) is a well grown dam with solid bones, strong conformation, a beautiful headstyle and coverage with a lovely fine fleece, soft handle and amazing fiber stats at 16.4 AFD!
Her dam, HRF Caryzma, is one of Starshire's reported best dams that produces show quality, ribbon winning, beautiful alpacas. Aoife’s maternal grandsire is 21x Champion Peruvian Challenger. Her sire is Snowmass Golden Chaccu, a Snowmass Black Out son and a Snowmass Matrix grandson.
Aoife clearly has a lineage worthy of an excellent service sire... luckily we have a few available! For her first breeding, we paired here with grey champion, Dauntless in attempt to capitalize on her heritage and modern grey fiber. Her fawn male, Jasper, is really shaping up to be a fantastic male -- nicely sized with excellent conformation, and sporting a fleece filled with crimpy, shiny, soft fiber. Despite not being the requested grey coloration, he is a nice male that can be a good herdsire for another farm.
She has given us a true black girl by our Black Maelstrom that we named Maeve (pronounced May-v), who is staying on our farm, and then this year a light fawn girl by our modern rose grey Magistrate that we named Siobhan (prounanced shaw-vawn) that is on our sales list only because we are downsizing and so will only keep one Aoife girl. Both girls are very fine and shiny with nice crimp.
Aoife is ultrasound-confirmed bred to our Major General who has made impressively solid boned, well grown blacks and greys for us.
