Mayflower



Accoyo Mayflower is exactly what you would expect her to be based on her lineage. She has incredible dense crimpy fine fiber, excellent coverage, and beautiful conformation. She is a full Accoyo blend of Caligula and Vengador genetics.

Her dam, Accoyo Safflower, was purchased at Pacific Crest's Parade of Champions sale. Safflower is the daughter of Caligula and Sajoma, Pacific Crest's first choice in the '95 importation. Mayflower's sire is Vengador's Accoyo Robinson Crusoe owned by Flying Pony Alpacas and Always Accoyo Alpacas. He is a very dense, typey Accoyo hersire with bright, high character fleece like his sire, Vengador.

Mayflower is at the very beginning of her reproductive career. She delivered her first cria out of Accoyo Pinachi, in the summer of '08 and proved herself to be an excellent mom. Her delivery was problem free. She had plenty of milk & her cria, Sunflower Girl, grew fast & strong & has since had a remarkable cria, Accoyo Cosmo, at Rock Garden Alpacas.

Mayflower's fleece is exquisite. She is extremely dense, very crimpy and her fleece has a very soft handle. We have rebred Mayflower to our beige herdsire, Accoyo Invasion. In 2010 this pair gave us an incredible Accoyo girl, Elizabeth Tilly who took a blue at her very first (and only one to date) halter show. Tim Lavan loved her look and her fleece and placed her over 8 other beautiful white girls in a very competitive class. We are thrilled with her fiber, coverage and conformation, and we'd love another one just like her! Invasion has the elite fleece and near perfect conformation that allowed judges from around the country to award him 16 blue ribbons, The Judge's Choice Award, and Best Brightness Award in addition to his 8 championships. Between this and the quality of Elizabeth Tilley, are you surprised we would breed Mayflower to anyone else? Another Elizabeth Tilley - even in male form - would be just fine by us!
