Color: Bay Black

Type: Female Huacaya

Description: NEWS: Sonora's fleece took Blue at the Level IV AFCNA Continental Fleece Show and went on to win the Reserve BLACK Championship!! Just look at the micron!! How many blacks do you find with the AFD of 19.5 and VERY low SD & CV??? [And her dam's fleece took Blue also!!]

We bred Safari, our true black daughter of SCA Peruvian Desert Sun, to our Aladdin of KPR, a sire of many champions, and the 2007 result was Sonora! We knew she was a winner after we saw her classic Aladdin head and correct conformation with excellent fleece...and judge Charlene Friedman agreed with us when she put her at the head of a class of 14 juvenile black females at 2008 GWAS, one of the largest shows in the USA.

Her fleece is very bright, with the high number of crimps per inch and a smooth surface like her sire.

She'll still be young enough to show this fall and breed in November and the question is: Do you want to show her or shall we???

Then comes the breeding: Of course, we can't offer her father as a possibility, but how about using Royal Peruvian Avanti. Even though he is a light fawn, he has produced gray and black when bred to those colors at Heatherbrook Farm, co-owner with us. Or you could breed Sonora to your own herdsire and send another female to breed with Aladdin or Yukon Jack, a silver gray Aladdin son. The possibilities are endless!

"Wow" was what we said when Safari was born!! A lovely true-black out of the renowned Desert Sun. We said it again when she gave birth to Sonora, her 2007 cria Sonora, out of our full-Peruvian bay black Aladdin... and you only have to look at the 2005-07 to see the Champions and reserves that Aladdin has thrown. [Crescent Moon has his black son Francisco on their herdsire row.] Sonora took 1st in a class of 13 bay black juvenile females at GWAS 2008, one of AOBA's largest shows. AND, Safari is bred back to Aladdin to repeat this great combination in 2008!

Safari's fleece has taken several Blues and one Reserve Championship and she is a solid true black except for a white ankle bracelet on her left leg.

SUPREME CHAMPION SON!!An Aladdin son just took Color & Supreme Champion at the Midwest Alpaca Jamboree, an International Show in Mason City, Iowa, Julio Sumar judging. Dr. Sumar's comments: "The perfect black alpaca!" The same son, Black Ice, won First & Reserve black at TXOLAN 2007 and again in 2008 and at the Southwest!!Breeders have been contacting us from the West & East coast since an Aladdin Daughter won Black championships at AWE, MAPACA & GWAS, plus a Reserve at the Futurity 2005 show season! And her half-brother took the Black Male Championship at AWE, also!!The same black guy placed second at the International in a huge black class and is now standing stud at Crescent Moon Ranch.[Look for Francisco in their stud lineup].

LOOK at his remarkable 7-year-old micron: AFD 23.8; SD ONLY 4.0; CV ONLY 16.8. The judges at GWAS 2007 remarked on the uniformity and soft handle of his progeny's fiber, as well as the uniformity of crimp and color.
