Jolly Rancher's Calypso - $4,000
Calypso is just stunning! Wow! After I got over my initial color shock (a white out of two browns?!) I realized that I had something amazing! Calypso has outstanding coverage, bone, and that suri head that people LOVE. She has that desired "wave to twist" lock structure that wins in the show ring AND in fleece processing! And luster?! Calypso has it in spades, I haven't seen an animal with this much luster in a long time! She is everything I hoped for in a little different color package! Calypso is also a sweetheart, very laid back and easy to manage! Her show record is proof of what I knew - she is a NICE female! A 2nd place at the Alpacapalooza halter show, a 2nd place behind the RC at the Suri Network fleece show, and to finish it off with a bang - a 1st and COLOR CHAMPION at the Fiber Fusion alpaca show!!!
Calypso is a very versatile female! She has the Accoyo genetics to fit really well in an Accoyo program AND she has the color genetics and background to produce some beautiful colored cria! Her first cria is proof that she can produce some awesome color! Cowboy Casanova is a lovely dark brown, the same color as his sire! His fleece at 11 months old was 15.6 microns! Calypso's second cria, Jolly Rancher's Blown Away, is following in Casanova's footsteps; exceedingly lustrous and fine!
Calypso's sire is none other then 6x champion "This is Tsunami's Storm Warning!" (a Torbio son) and her dam is a dark brown girl, "This is Katydid!" This girl has Accoyo genetics AND color genetics!
Calypso is 15/16th Peruvian and 1/16 Chilean and 3/8th Accoyo.
1st place and color champion - Fiber Fusion alpaca fleece show - Judge Ruth Elvestad commented on her wonderful luster and handle! 2nd place - 2012 Suri Network All Suri Fleece Show - white juveniles, class of 9. Calypso took HIGH scores in her class! The judge's comment was, "Beautiful luster!" Calypso placed 2nd to the reserve champion male who tied for high scoring fleece in the entire show! 2nd place - 2012 Alpacapalooza white juvie females - Wade Gease commented on her high luster, excellent lock structure and consistancy, fineness, and suri phenotype. 1st place & best score for luster - 2013 CABA Classic fleece show - Judge Cheryl Gehly loved her fleece so much that she asked if I would be willing to let her have it to use for judge's training!
