Gems & Genetics Sale- PREVIEW

July 18, 2009

gg_logo-sml2-1.jpgHere we go- the first annual ‘Gems & Genetics Sale’. Probably not the best time to add yet another auction to the pool, but nonetheless this should be a fun event. With a social described as “food and wine by the pool” this almost sounds like a vacation. There will be 42 lots offered in all. If you are in need of a foundation white or fawn animal, I suggest making the trip as there are some nice offerings. Lets take a look…

Date: September 12 and 13, 2009

Hosts: Sunset Hills Farm and Mary’s Alpaca

Location: Sunset Hills Farm; Butler, Pennsylvania

This is the first auction hosted by Mary Goodman of Mary’s Alpaca. She has really stepped up to the plate offering a number of her foundation girls:

Lot 14: SCA Peruvian Misty Rose

– Full Peruvian Misty Maiden X Accoyo Avenger daughter

– Produced awesome light daughter in 2005

Lot 25: PCA Accoyo Annapurna

– Arguably one of the top one or two dams at Mary’s Alpaca. Full Accoyo (Vengador).

– Futurity Champion herself, as well as the mother of one… Great genetics AND bred to Magnum.

Lot 10: MSA Hemingway’s Vanalika

– Blue-ribbon winning Hemingway daughter, and mother to some nice Champion lights.

That lineup is by far the best quality among a single contributor in the auction. Mary Goodman has put forth four solid proven dams to chose from- which is after-all the most securable buy. I wouldn’t be surprised if one of these girls takes highest bid at the sale.

There are five other females (no males offered in this sale) that should be featured here:

Lot 15: RAL Lindsey

– Quality female offered by Sunset Hills Alpacas.

Lot 20: SA Peruvian Quattro’s Joyanna

– By far the most elite-fleeced unproven female in the sale. Multi-Champion white bred to Mary’s, Hudson.

– We recently did a feature on her sire, Supernova’s Quattro.

Lot 21: MG Peruvian Willow By Triumph

– Quality fawn full Peruvian female backed by a consistent dam.

– Took first in her class at MaPaca this year.

Lot 47: Crescent Moon’s Valencia

– One of Laurye Fellar’s top producing dam’s

– She’s brown but her sire is Accoyo Legacy

Lot 13: Tuscan’s Diva di Bella Vita

Just thought I would mention this Tuscan Gold daughter, as we recently covered this bloodline.

All-in-all this sale preview has made me realize this auction is going to be focusing on the proven dam’s. I think this is a good move by consigners- as healthy consistent females is the most secure purchase.
