They DO Exist- An Elite Full Accoyo

July 19, 2009

thumbnail-2.aspxI recently wrote an article analyzing the Accoyo market in the United States. Take from it what you will, but there are certainly some beautiful Alpacas in this country , and some of them happen to be full Accoyo. This male, Accoyo Bullion of LLC, is one of them.

When I saw this 2008 model Jr. Herdsire at the Midwest Alpaca Show in Columbus, Ohio, it was his first show appearance. I looked at him once and walked away… No actually I examined his fleece thoroughly, as a judge is suppose to do, and determined he was of elite quality. No surprise to me, that day Bullion would win two first places (one for produce of dam), and a Color Championship in the fawn class.

Bullion would go on to win six blue ribbons and four Championships in spring of 2009:

2009 Midwest Alpaca show, First place juvi med. fawn class of 11
Color Champion 2009 Midwest alpaca show
First place produce of Dam Accoyo Hanna

2009 Fort Wayne IN. Blue ribbon class of 14 Juvi Medium fawn
Color Champion 2009 Fort Wayne IN.
First place Produce of Dam For Hanna

2009 Kentucky Classic class of 12 Juvi Medium Fawn Blue ribbon
Color Champion Fawn Class Kentucky Classic 2009

2009 Buckeye First Place med. fawn juvi Males
Reserve Color Champion fawn 2009 Buckeye

This male has tremendous eye appeal, a consistent theme among multi-Champion Alpacas. His posture, attitude, and fleece coverage already puts him ahead of the class. Bullion has uniformly, dense follicles and strong-styled crimp. He should have been slightly finer at the time I evaluated him. To continue his success in the ring, Bullion will need to retain the fineness that he has. DSC03620.JPG

Genetically, this male is backed by a dam recently put on many “radar screens”. She herself is a daughter of Accoyo Express. Bullion’s own sire is Accoyo Goldsmith. These two paternal lines have done quite well over the years, but Bullion should rank among the top three from either sire.

Accoyo Bullion of LLC is owned by Legacy Criations and Always Accoyo Alpacas.

    I showed Bullion for Legacy Criations, down at Kentucky, and I thought he was certainly fine enough! Afterall, he did win 4 championships, 4 judges thought he was fine enough to be champion!
    Bullion is awesome and probably the densest alpaca I have ever laid my hands on.
