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, and crimpy. She was in the Top 15% 2017 EPD Results - Fleece Weight. In 2016 her fiber took 3rd Place in the AOA Nationals Fleece Show. Her fiber is actually one of my favorites to work with.

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. Ribbons include 1st Place 2014 STA Hummdinger - Fleece. 1st Place 2013 American Fiber Rally - Fleece.  2nd Place 2013 Green Mountain Fall Spectacular - Fleece and 3rd Place 2012 American Fiber Rally – Fleece. Zinnia has consistently placed in the Top 1 - 15% on AOA's EPD Trait Leaders reports since 2013.

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 2017 in fleece weight and will be featured in their presentation during the Alpaca Owners Association National Show and Auction in 2018; this is his third year in a row.  He has consistently been in the Top 1-15% for AFD, SF, %F>30, and %M, MSL & FW since 2013.

Petunia was an excellent first time Mom. We expected a beautiful cria from this pairing and we got one - Digitalis (Digit for short) Just like his mother and his father, he has long, crimpy, dense; appearing to be beige, fleece. and his energy is never ending.
