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, and her fiber is extremely long, fine and crimpy.

Her dam is our Rock Garden Perucoyo Zinnia, a sweet beautiful, medium fawn multiple ribbon winning alpaca with a very rare bloodline and fleece that is extremely fine and uniform throughout. Zinnia has consistently placed in the Top 1 - 10% on AOA's EPD Trait Leaders reports in 2013, 2014 2015 and 2016 for the traits of SDAFD, SF, %F>30, MC, and SDMC. Zinnia's dam is our girl Ivy (Gianna's Peruvian Ivy), whose genetics are also extremely rare. Ivy was a Top 5 EPD Trait Leader in 2013 and 2015 for the trait SDAFD and missed by one in 2014; was #6.

Petunia's 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.

Petunia was bred in 2016 to our herdsire Rock Gardens Accoyo Cosmo who has once again been named one of AOA's Top 5 EPD Trait Leaders for 2016 in fleece weight and will be featured in their presentation during the Alpaca Owners Association National Show and Auction in 2017. Cosmo had also been named one of AOA's Top 5 EPD Trait Leaders for 2015 for fleece weight. At 5 years of age, he once again continues to be in the Top 10% for AF #1825 out of 21089, SF #1796, %F>30 #812, %M #491 and MSL #346. He has consistently been in the Top 1-10% for MSL, AFD, SF, %F>30, and %M since 2013.

We expect a beautiful cria from this pairing...
