Rock Garden's Perucoyo Petunia



Petunia was the only 2014 cria on our farm, she has been quite a joy; full of lots of energy and spunk making sure to keep all the girl's on their toes.  She is Perucoyo (Full Peruvian, 3/4 Accoyo) Black.

Her dam in our Zinnia a sweet beautiful, medium fawn Perucoyo alpaca with a very rare bloodline and fleece that is extremely fine and uniform throughout. Zinnia's ribbons include 1st Place 2014 STA Hummdinger - Fleece - Judge Wini Lebreque noted "Minimal guard hair - showing good uniformity in micron across blanket." 1st Place 2013 American Fiber Rally - Fleece - Judge Ursula Munro stated "Excellent fineness & uniformity throughout this fleece - nice!"  2nd Place 2013 Green Mountain Fall Spectacular - Fleece - Judge Ursula Munro stated "Impressive fineness and uniformity - staple length - WOW!" also noted that "scores could improve even more with more skirting", and 3rd Place 2012 American Fiber Rally – Fleece - Judge Wini Labrecqu stated “Good Character - above average fleece weight", 2nd Place 2012 Empire Trifecta Spin-Off.
Zinnia placed in the Top 10% on ARI's EPD Trait Leaders report in both 2013 and 2014 for the traits of SF, %F>30, MC, SDMC and FW. In 2013 she placed in the Top 1% for SDAFD and in 2014 the Top 10%.

Her Sire is Double Stuffs Accoyo Libre, a Full Accoyo, Medium Fawn, 5X Ribbon winner who produces elite offspring.  He is the son of C. Peruvian Accoyo Express, Medium Fawn, National Champion Signature Herdsire with 3 Get of Sires in 2008.

Rock Garden's HR Montauk



This sweet boy came to us quite unexpectedly in the Fall of 2014 when we were looking to bring a companion in for our younger male Berberis who had been recently separated from the girls and was too young to be alone with the big boys. He had not been registered or named as yet; so we found it only fitting to name him Montauk. (The montauk daisy will show up in your Fall garden when you least expect it.)

Montauk has the sweetest face and disposition. He has bright white, crimpy, fleece that is long, silky, and very fine. He is a virtual melting pot of fantastic Peruvian, Alianza, Accoyo and Bolivian bloodlines - Alianza from Hemingway who is believed to have had the most profound impact on the quality of the alpacas outside of South America, on both his parents sides; Mister Antonio; one of Hemingway's best son's, on his Dam's side and Bueno; picked #1 choice by 3 of the Country's leading breeders who produced more "Get of Sires" than any male in the Country, on his Sire's side. Next throw in some Accoyo from Caligula; All American Futurity Herdsire and AOBA Get of Sire Winner; and Augusto - Record breaking highest selling alpaca - sold in 2000 for $226,000. & AOBA Breeders Choice Winner; and, Wellington; believed to be the best offspring of Augusto all on his Sire's side. Next we add Bolivian from Rockamundo; one of Canada's top producing macho males - a direct import from Bolivia, also on his Sire's side.
