We purchased Pepper as a maiden from at the 2020 Autumn Amber Auction. Pepper is an attractive female with all of the ingredients needed for a wonderful production dam. Sire AOV Accoyo Eros worked his magic crossed over a Jericho/Jeremiah/Mr. President daughter. Throw in some Royal Fawn/Vengador on the top side and what do you get? Pepper!! ... a lovely female with very nice phenotype, an attractive head, strong well-balanced frame and a perfect bite. Her fleece displays density, fineness, staple length, high frequency crimp and uniformity well into her extremities.

Pepper’s most recent show results are the 2022 AOA National Fleece show. She received 1st place in her class and the “Most Uniform” award. Judge Wade Gease commented “Impressive density and volume to this fleece along with its micron range and uniformity. Excellent entry!”

And Pepper's 2nd fleece was entered in the 2020 AOA National Fleece Show's Innovative Fleece Assessment. A copy of the score card / assessment can be viewed in "photos". Judge Cheryl Gehly commented "Fine secondaries in this dense, bright, highly aligned fleece!"

Pepper delivered her first baby on 11/21/21 out of harlequin male Taupie's Son-shine of DVAF. The result is a lovely light fawn female-- Pepper's Spice Girl of DVAF. In October 2022, offspring, Spice Girl, attended her first show and placed first and Reserve Light Fawn Color Championship.

For Pepper's second breeding, she was paired with the wildly spotted harlequin appaloosa herdsire, Apache Gentleman. On 11/10/22 she delivered a handsome harlequin appaloosa male. Even at birth, this male has bundles of bright, dense curls.

Pepper's color genotype is ee a1a2. With her double dilute and double black alleles, she can be successful stamping her lovely phenotype and elite fleece across a variety of breeding programs such as black, grey, fawn and even harlequin appaloosa.

Pepper is proudly co-owned with Diamond Valley Alpacas.
