When we made the decision to breed Pandora to Principe, our decision was strictly based on producing the best quality alpaca, setting aside our color goals. The Legacy/El Nino cross has proven to be a very successful cross in the past, and we knew this pairing would produce a beautiful alpaca regardless of color.
To our delight, not only did we get the quality we were planning for, we also were rewarded with a beautiful Light Rose Grey Female!
HFAR Principe's Peruvian Selene is a FULL PERUVIAN, ½ ACCOYO, MEDIUM ROSE GREY female. She is showing excellent density, consistent crimp, beautiful brightness, and extreme fineness. These traits are to be expected considering her lineage: Michelangelo, El Nino, El R Peruvian Luciano, and Legacy. This girl represents the best of the best!
Selene will made her show debut in March at the IAOBA Railsplitter Show, taking First Place and Reserve Color Championship at just 6.5 months old! Extreme Fineness, extreme consistency with excellent density. Following up with a Second Place at the AOA National Show the following weekend! Selene wrapped up her spring show season with another 1st Place at thw Wisconsin Alpaca and FIber Fest Show!
Our only regret is that Principe was back at our partner's farm in Georgia in the fall so we could not repeat this breeding. When he comes back in the spring, we will definitely put Selene's sire and dam together again!
