Who doesn't love chocolate?

Cacao Chanel of PBR is a lovely milky chocolate brown. She inherited her beautiful color from her g-sire Skywalker by Poseidon of FDA. She is exotic and looks like she is made from a far grown cocoa bean. Her perfectly formed ears have bay black tips that sparkle when the sun shines upon them. She exhibits excellent phenotype and a beautiful fleece with lots of crimp and a soft hand, not surprising with sires Rembrandt El Nino and Aussie Rockford.

Her Dam, "Our Shiloh's Mariah" took after her sire, Skywalker by Poseidon of FDA, with her large bone and dense, full coverage. Take a look at her ARI certificate at Top 1% for afd, sf, %f>30, Top 10% for %m and top 15% for Fleece weight. She carries Caligula's El Nino genetics on both sides of her pedigree. El Nino is the son of PPeruvian Caligula, one of the most important studs in the history of the North American alpaca industry. Mike Safley stated, "Caligula died in 2003 with 203 registered offspring. His progeny won 12 sire competitions, two of those at AOBA National shows. Once he was 2nd in the get class at the Nationals, losing to his son Accoyo’s El Nino’s first place get. His sons and daughters have won 17 championships at the largest shows in the U.S., not counting the breeder’s best awards. Today Caligula’s offspring are working in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and England."

To top it all off, Cacao Chanel of PBR has an excellent pedigree as her sire is the ever popular Vintage Cashmere U-taupe-ia of Rare Gem Alpacas which gives her a 50/50 chance of carrying the Harlequin/Appaloosa gene. Taupie is a striking appaloosa harlequin male that is on a roll for throwing spotted and harlequin offspring. He now has ~30 offspring on the ground and ~80 percent are either appaloosa or harlequin! While dam selection has a significant influence on such outcomes, it should be noted that the majority of the dams Taupie has been bred to have no genetic influence on this outcome. So for those that don't have existing foundation girls with appy / harlequin lineage-- Taupie has proven to be capable of passing along his appy genetics and produce desired results. Taupie's biopsy (September, 2016) results are in! Density: 53.6 mm; Secondary: Primary fiber ratio: 9.7:1; In-skin mean primary fiber diameter: 25.3 microns / SD 4 microns; In-skin mean secondary fiber diameter: 21.1 microns SD 3.8. Bioposy sample was extracted by Ian Watt personally. He has a super long staple length (in the top 6% EPD 2016), with high frequency, medium amplitude crimp.

So with Cacao Channel's dense, buttery soft fleece, perfect conformation and a 50/50 chance of carrying the harlequin/appaloosa gene, she would be great to addition to anyone's herd.
