Starquest's Rocketman ("Rocky" as we call him) was one of 6 white males born here on the farm in 2010. We knew within the first week he was going to be special, and it feels good to be right! Rocky represents Excellence in every category. Take a look below- - Pedigree. Rocky's sire is Snowmass Starquest- 2003 AOBA Champion and Futurity Reserve Champion. Starquest brings Augusto, Vengador, Navidad, and Isabella. Rocky's dam is our own Blossom of Snow. This Snowmass Perfection daughter has been ...

Gem State's Cinnarun

Huacaya Open (Female) Light Fawn

AOA# 31507547 DOB: 8/13/200913 yrs
A Very Fine PC Running Late Girl! "Cinny" was one of two Running Late offspring born in 2009. From the start, she has been, not surprisingly, a very fine-fleeced light fawned beauty showing the same qualities as her Sire. She is maintaining fineness at an unbelievable level (16.9 micron at 4 yrs old). This lingering fineness is a highly heritable trait passed on from her sire PC Running Late - a Futurity, IAO, and AOBA National champion. Add to this a long staple, a very gentle disposition, g ...

Gemstates Iron Man

Huacaya Herdsire (Male) Beige

AOA# 35205630 DOB: 6/17/20166 yrs
*** Iron Man has been a very solid herdsire for us over the last few years. Every Cria we've had has had superb fiber characteristics and he continually throws fawn when bred to white. We have a daughter that is exceptional (Sahara) and his son (Brigadier) that is the next in line to be a Macpaca Herdsire All-Star, which is the only reason we are auctioning him with a starting bid at such a discounted price. His genetics are extremely difficult to come by as mentioned below, so this is a great o ...

*** Due to family circumstances - we are reducing the size of our herd. Petra's Auction Price is not a reflection of her quality, but rather the need to reduce our numbers. ****


We are so excited to have Petra on our farm. She has great genetics, super fine fiber, and has the adorable look down pat. Petra's Dam is a PC Running Late daughter who had a 16.9 AFD at age 4! Petra is primed for long lasting fineness.

Her Sire is Gem State's Starquest's Rocket Man. A genetic powerhouse who also is sporting some amazing fiber stats. He is the top 1% EPD on SDAFD and Curve and top 2% on AFD and Spin Fineness. Rocketman's genetics are incredible on both sides of the aisle.

Putting a PC Running Late Daughter with Rocketman really did produce a winner! Petra already exhibits unbelievable fineness and brightness. Her fleece is beautifully bundled and she is a fabulous foundation female. Take a look at her histograms! They are phenomenal!

Petra is an EPD super star. She's a stat geek too, with numbers that continue to impress. It is a bonus that she is one of the best mom's on the farm. We lost a mama alpaca this past year and Petra was more than willing to nurse the cria left behind. She produced enough milk for both her own and her adopted cria. Good mamas are underrated!


*** Update *** Bam! A home run with this one! Paradox is going to be special!

She is now bred to Iron Man for a 2020 cria. I have a feeling this will be another big win!

*** Update ***

And another huge hit! Indeed, she threw another light fawn, this one with Iron Man. It took us all of one day to realize that this little guy's fleece has some serious character. We will wait and watch ... you should too!

*** Update ***

Cria #4 is yet another fawn - but this time a girl! We were so happy with Petra's cria from last year that we re-bred Iron Man to Petra and they produced another stunning fawn cria. We already see the potential for her fleece to turn out as nicely as her brothers! Another home run for Petra.
