Biscotti of Peak Ranch!  Not a newborn cria, but rather a 10 month old male alpaca. 

I came across Biscotti while at the Great Western Alpaca Show in Denver back in May.  I looked at a lot of alpacas at the show but Biscotti and his stall mate Jack Black stood out in my memory.  So much so that while I had planned on setting off back to Clovis on the Sunday morning without going back to the show grounds I instead decided to go back and take a another look at Biscotti and Jack Black.

I was impressed by the fineness and handle of both of the boys fleeces but the brightness, consistency, density and tiny bundles of Biscotti’s fleece along with his long list of top quality ancestors made him the winner at the end of the day (how I wish money were no object or I would have no doubt bought both of the boys, but Ric had put a limit on my spending – spoilsport!).

Biscotti’s fleece has a drape to it almost like a suri fleece, but when you part it you are greeted by well organized huacaya crimp with a stunning brightness and soft, soft handle.  Biscotti’s registration certificate contains names such as CND Accoyo Bizcocho, PPeruvian Timoteo, PPeruvian Camilio, PPPeruvian Auzengate, 4Peruvian Black Magic, SCA Peruvian Desert Sun and PPeruvian Leon – and just in case you haven’t guessed Biscotti is full Peruvian.

Biscotti’s dam Gypsy Sun has five blue ribbons and two Reserve Color Champions to her name and at five years of age is still holding her fleece qualities, something that we look for in bloodlines that we bring into our herd.  Biscotti’s sire CND Accoyo Bizcocho is a full Accoyo who is densely covered from head to toe with beautiful, lustrous fiber.  CND Accoyo Bizcocho is also holding his fleece qualities as he ages.  With such great genetics in his background Biscotti should eventually put some wonderful cria on the ground.

Biscotti is a very easygoing alpaca, sweet and easy to handle which is a good thing as he is also quite large for his age.  It will be quite a while before he is ready to breed but we are already looking forward to seeing how his cria turn out.

We thank Rene and Dennis Beshear of Peak Ranch Alpacas for giving us the opportunity to bring some fresh genetics into our herd and look forward to keeping them updated on Biscotti’s progress.
