National Elite Alpaca Auction 2009 PREVIEW

July 9, 2009

The National Elite Alpaca Auction preview is finally out- 3 weeks before the sale… I’ll bite my tongue. But, lets take a look at some animals shall we, as it appears to be a nice group this year.


Date: Saturday, August 1, 2009
Location: Leesburg, Virginia
Hosts: Virginia Alpaca Farm & Breeding Co.   /   Cas-Cad-Nac Farm, LLC
Lot Entries: 72


If you didn’t catch the Parade of Champions results and analysis be sure to do so. Then, come back here and know that the National Elite Sale will only be offering three full Accoyos- probably a good thing after the numbers seen on July 4th. There is a wide array of seemingly quality animals coming from host Cas-Cad-Nac Farm and a big name herdsire put up by Virginia Alpaca Farm & Breeding Co. Let’s take a look at the males first.

Crescent Moon’s Checkmate (Lot #21) is a 5x Champion. And, he IS out of a full Accoyo dam along with the notorious Checkmate_Main.jpgCrescent Moon’s Rayo Del Sol siring. I like the combo, no matter how strange it might be. Checkmate is a proven male (producing 65% females), and he is a nice male. He should be a contender for high-selling male of the sale– but I’m not crossing my fingers on him.

MiBfuturity2009.jpgCCNF Man In Black (Lot #7) will be an intriguing prospect to breeders that favor dark. A 5x Champion in two years, including back-to-back Futurity titles. Genetics consist of Dam by Nova, and Sired from CCNF Royal Ring of Fire.

talonCatalogImageCorrected_R.jpgCCNF Talon (Lot #31) is THE animal I am going to watch closest in this auction. A 4x Champion SuperNova son. He should be the high-selling male for the night, but that doesn’t always mean he will… If you follow maternal lines closely, then you’ll also be aware of the fact that Talon’s dam, Sunny Mesa’s Tessora is one of the winning-est white females of all-time. Enough said, check him out.                            talonfleece.jpg

Now for the females…

CCNF Golden Rosary (Lot #4) – Closely related to all the powerhouses in CCNF show string. Dam is one of the best.

CCNF Femme Fatale (Lot 14) – 3x time Blue ribbon winner and Reserve Champ at MaPaca in 2008.

Spa Alpacas Silver Sizzle (Lot #46) – Early daughter from 8x Champion STF Jetson.

SHRA Zephyr (Lot 71) – Dam to CAR SuperNova’s Quattro.

We will be covering the auction live here on alpacaguy, so be sure to tune in. There will also be an open chat during the sale for discussion.
