Thank you and congratulations to Rotten Mud Hodowla Alpak in Poland for the purchase of our AutumnSun's Oraine and AutumnSun's Marvelous Miranda at the (2023) 9th Annual Amber Autumn Auction! We are pleased in your faith in our program, and we are excited at the prospect of further promoting our alpacas in Europe.
From her perfect wedge head to her uniform fleece and spot on conformation, this girl is special.
Oraine has spot on conformation with a type-y look -- squared, solid framed, with a pretty wedge head and good coverage. She has a brilliant shine showing off her crimp from skin to tip in a long staple. Her fleece has excellent density and uniformity in fineness and crimp across her blanket and deep into her belly and hindquarters for its margins. You cannot beat this girl's super sweet personality, carried down from "chill" dam/sire.
Oraine's dam is a Champion girl, including a Reserve at the AOA National Show. AutumnSun's Danica is the daughter of Snowmass Belvedere out of our Song -- a dam that has given us black cria more than once. We also have a brown daughter of Belvedere in our foundation, which shows that both maternal and paternal lines in Danica's pedigree produces color.
Oraine's sire accepted the judge's pick in fleece after also winning best crimp. This is where Oraine gets her brilliance! AutumnSun's Axios is the son of Irish Meadows Peruvian Shades of Silver (son of Legend's Peruvian Revelation by KPR) out of our Renee, daughter of black champion Irish Meadows Peruvian Knight Ryder. Name dropping for sure in the greys and blacks.
Oraine's pedigree also means she is completely unrelated to just about all of our champion herdsires! It was a hard decision to put her in the auction! But, we figured we could breed Danica back to Axios to try for another beautiful girl, so why not. Our muliple champion blacks, closed from purchased breedings, 26x Estates Stradivarius and 13x AutumnSun's Black Maelstrom, are available to her for her maiden breeding. If you are more interested in grey, we have our 12x AutumnSun's Truthsayer, 8x Dauntless, 5x Artorius and 3x Longbow as suitors for her maiden breeding. Truthsayer is a Jacob black son; Dauntless, a Bomber son; Artorius, a Brutus son; and Longbow, an Enlightenment son. Those of you who breed for grey will recognize those names, so you can see that color runs deep in her potential Service sires.
