Dahlia


Rock Garden Alpacas Perucoyo Dahlia


Full Peruvian 5/8 Accoyo; Dahlia is a sweetheart with beautiful long, dense, crimpy beige fleece! From day 1 she has been nothing but a pleasure full of energy that never stops! We were expecting a grey of some sort so imagine our surprise when she arrived and we found this beautiful little white cria that has since turned to beige! It seems Dahlia inherited her great grandfather Don Quijotes light coloring while also inheriting her grandfather Picasso's dense and long fleece. Her snout is completely dark so we would not be the least bit surprised if when bred she would produce grey herself - of course; with her lineage, she could quite possibly produce black, medium fawn, beige, white??????

Dahlia's dam is Bluestone Peruvian Roxy a full Peruvian 1/4 Accoyo dark silver grey girl who is a traditional grey with a tuxedo and all the wonderful markings and colors that traditional greys are known for. Roxy'a Dam is Bujorian's Peruvian Opal - a full peruvian, 1/2 Accoyo, white alpaca who is the daughter of C Peruvian Accoyo Don Quijote a Full Peruvian Accoyo - white - in-utero import with "possibly the rarest champion Accoyo genetics in the Country". Roxy's Sire is Alpacarosa Peruvian Picasso a Full Peruvian Tuxedo Style Bay Black with fleece that excels in density and length. Picasso is the son of Benchmark's Peruvian Bam Bam a Full Peruvian Dark Silver Grey who took 1st Place at AOBA Nationals Yearling Halter in 2004, 1st Place Illinois Showplace 2004, 1st Place Michigan International Alpacafest 2003 and 2nd Pace Ohio Alpacafest 2003.

Dahlia's sire is PHA Accoyo Stratosphere, Full Accoyo, medium fawn, Legacy son. Strat is one of the premiere fawn Accoyo herd sires in the country.  Stratosphere is the product of 4Peruvian Accoyo Legacy, the highest selling alpaca of all time, & Accoyo Astillero, the dam of multiple blue ribbon & champion cria. He is 1 of only a handful of full Accoyos that Legacy has EVER produced, & is 1 of only 2 herd sire Medium Fawn Full Accoyo Legacy sons in the world! Stratosphere CONSISTANTLY improves the dam, at every level adding density, crimp, fineness.
