Big, bold and beautiful, that's Plantel in a nutshell.
We started shearing in our boys' barn in early April a few years back, and it is all because of Plantel!
Well, there are more than a few who needed an early shear date just as badly, but truly, Plantel's fleece is just so dense it cracks like scorched earth.
His phenotype is just as highly desirable.
Last fall at the Breeders' Choice Auction at Magical Farms, two full Accoyo Plantel daughters sold for the respectively tidy sums of $75,000 and $102,000.
Our little "Hemi-Accoyo" boy, Hidden Hill Harbinger has gotten the best of his dam's fleece characteristics and dad's phenotype and density.
Our little 7/8 Accoyo Plantel daughter born in 2005, Plantel's Nearlycoyo Peony, has a stunningly bright, elite fleece that sold many a breeding to her dad for us.
We are honored to co-own this truly legendary male with Magical Farms.
Plantel just left to spend time at stud with our friends at Five Star Alpacas in Indiana.
We miss him, but he will no doubt enjoy his stay there!
