Solstice. Born during the summer solstice in June, she has continued to shine bright as she grown into adulthood. Always a very hearty and stout, strong girl she has grown beautifully - so much so that as our eyes focused on breeding white alpacas, Solstice causes us to pause and continue on with the fawn breeding program as well, she is growing such an advanced type of fleece that we look forward to breeding her with the absolute best in the industry.

Her sire is Hummingherd's Leviathan (a Poseidon son) who took the Hummingherd breeding program to new levels of density and lasting fineness. He won the AOA Fleece show two years in a row in the competitive white class, with his son Levi's 501 of Hummingherd also winning Reserve both years. The show wins on Leviathan offspring are too numerous to count. He truly imparted his strengths onto the next generation consistently. To cross the Leviathan line with Solstice's dam Deora - an award winning dark fawn female sired by Hummingherd's Legacy de Oro - A Snowmass Legacy Gold son, has resulted in this elite fleeced female with a well-known fawn heritage.

Without even having her own EPDs yet in the program, she shows top 3-10% in most stats due to her strong genetic lines. She is a solid medium fawn, no white spots, black skin. Excellent conformation in every way. She has the nose shading that leans towards grey, and might be a good candidate for grey breedings. As she was shorn for the first time, as a yearling, our shearer asked about her - not a common occurrence at shearing, but he had me walk over and discuss what he was seeing as he sheared... he stated this was the kind of alpaca he would buy!! To me, that says a LOT. He shears thousands of alpacas a year.

In her first show, the Gold Country Gathering by CALPACA - she won FIRST in her class, and went on to fetch the Reserve Color Championship, after an excellent older Renaisance Ridge female took championship. We were in good strong company! Judge David Barboza spoke to her fineness, and uniformity throughout being quite impressive.

Her second show blew us away - she went to Nationals, and we just hoped not to get the gate... as the competition was insane and we stood in the largest class of all fawn classes. Every well known breeding program was lined up with Solstice in this class and she was awarded THIRD place. This is an honor, and speeks volumes of her qualities. Her fleece on display garnered many comments from other breeders. She has an elite fleece in every way.

She is well-related to the fawn studs at the ranch here, so we had to aim high and reach outward for Solstice's first breeding. We chose RR Guns-A-Blazin' who is a 16XBanner winner and tested as the densest non-white male at the time of follicle density testing in 2010 by Watt/Australian. Needless to say, we simply cannot wait for March 2018 when Solstice is due.
