In 2005, Aspen Ridge Alpacas' breeding practices produced
Aspen Ridge Augusto's Cochiti, the Champion White Huacaya
Male at the Great Western Apaca Show in Denver, as judged
by Dr. Julio Sumar, internationally renowned alpaca judge
Cochiti triumphed against males from all over the country.
In 2008, a Cochiti daughter was the highest-selling female
in the AOBA National Conference auction.
In 2009, Aspen Ridge Alpacas took a mature female to the
Great Western Alpaca Show and entered her in spite of the
much younger competition.
There was another amazing event:
Tequila Sunrise, a fawn dam at ARA, took FIRST PLACE
in her color class at six years of age! Fantastic!
So, Aspen Ridge Augusto's Cochiti and Tequila Sunrise
got together to bring forth a proud young son---ZUNI!
Many cultures believe that animals have Magic and Power.
ZUNI has both in his blood: the power of his sire, Cochiti,
and the magic of his dam, Tequila Sunrise.
Look for him at the Great Western Alpaca Show in 2011!
ZUNI is now available for purchase.
Mickey and Evelyn are sisters who share a strong
commitment to breed for the best!
