River Rock's Sabrina

Sabrina is irresistible. She has inherited the fiber quality, growth rate and character of her Peruvian sire, NWA, Ltd Leo, and her grandsire, Accoyo Peruvian Leon. She is the richest dark chocolate or coffee color you have ever seen and has a calm, gentle and friendly personality. Her dark fawn sire Leo’s fleece won a blue ribbon at EVAA 2001 for all alpacas over 5 years of age - at age 4 his fiber analysis was 24.8/5.9/23.8/12 with a shearing weight of over 10lbs. Her dam is a true black Chilean, with great density and sheen, an attractive presence and compact body style. Sabrina is an excellent mother with an abundance of milk – literally running down her leg when she was feeding Angus, her first cria. In 2003 she produced a true black cria out of our award-winning maroon herdsire, Romeo, and she is now bred with Ben MacDhui, our champion silver-grey herdsire, for her 2004 cria.

Awards: Her dense fleece took a third place at the highly competitive 2001 EVAA show, although her staple length is so exceptional that Maggie Krieger could hardly believe the fiber came from a juvenile!

Sabrina gave birth to Romeo's black cria, Logan, this fall and is now bred with our champion grey herdsire, Ben MacDhui. Dhui is a medium silver grey herdsire with exceptional density and lock structure to his award winning fleece, excellent conformation, an exquisite typey head, and a truly delightful temperament. He also has a strong grey/black pedigree reaching back four generations. 

MacDhui's awards: Reserve Champion and a blue ribbon at the Virginia Classic 2002, judged by Anthony Stachowski; second place in adult male halter at the 2002 MaPaca Jubilee, judged by Mike Safley (over 1100 entries) and second place fleece awarded by Nard Mullen at the same show; first at the 2001 MaPaca Jubilee in full fleece yearling halter, judged by Julio Sumar and Susan Tellez (over 900 alpacas); second at the 2001 Triple Crown in Dayton Ohio, (over 250 alpacas); third at the 2000 Keystone Klassic in the Juvenile Grey class.

Ben MacDhui

Sabrina's dark fawn sire, Leo, is a son of the renowned Peruvian Accoyo Leon, who had an average fiber density of 19.9 microns at 4 years of age. Leon is the darkest fawn Accoyo male in the U.S., with an exquisite color, head and presence. He is known to throw a wide range of color with amazing luster and crimp. 

Sabrina has inherited her sire Leo's gorgeous typey huacaya head, his incredible staple length and heavy bone. Her dark color genetics and phenomenal density come from her black Chilean dam, Black Moon, whose heritage is all black and grey.


Sire, Leo
Sabrina has already demonstrated her ability to pass on her rich, dark color, her magnificent head, density and staple length with the birth of her dark brown cria, Angus, and her latest cria out of Romeo, the true black Logan. She births easily, produces an unbelievable amount of milk, and is a calm and attentive dam. Angus has also inherited her outstanding temperament, heavy bone and award-winning genetics. At only 10 days over the minimum age limit to show, while recovering from a broken leg, he ribboned in the dark brown juvenile halter class at the largest show in the nation, MaPaca 2003. Quality begets quality!
Grandsire, Pperuvian Leon
