Premier Dam at ‘Champion Alpacas’ Dies

July 1, 2009

thumbnail-10.aspxIn a statement released by Chris and Susan Lehner, owners of Champion Alpacas on May 20, 2009:

“We feel the loss of yet another great import. It is with great sadness that we say goodbye today to one of the matriarchs of our herd, PPPeruvian Accent. Accent came here from the Sollocata Region of Peru in 1995 and left her mark of quality in our national herd. She leaves behind her outstanding genetics through her offspring. Accent will be greatly missed.”

You may or may not be aware, but Accent is the dam of ‘Christopher-B‘ a 3x Get-of-Sire winner, who carries one of my favorite bright fleeces. He’s worth checking out.

Accent was a big name for Champion Alpacas. She managed to maintain her fineness– a commonality among Sollocota imports. This idea of ‘lingering fineness‘ is discussed in a recent post on Alpacaguy.
