Details
We first saw this gorgeous alpaca as a cria at a farm in Virginia when we were fairly new to alpacas. We honestly could not believe that her striking striped pattern could be real, and passed on the purchase. Ever since that day, I have often thought of her and over the years have wondered what ever happened to her. We began a long term study into pattern genetics and agreed that it would be great to perform genetic testing on several wildly patterned alpacas we own and of course Ripple came up in conversation many times. Three years ago, we began a difficult and frustrating journey to track her down. Her owner at the time we saw her a s a cria was no longer a breeder and the marketplace that we originally saw her on was no longer published on the internet. We did sort of remember her name and after searching her in the AOA database and many phone calls with dead end leads, we were able to track down her owner!

It took 2 years of negociations, but Ripple finally came home to us; nearly 10 years after our first encounter with her! Some things are just meant to be! She is everything we had remembered; a dense beauty with that unique striping pattern on a solid correct frame. We couldn't be happier with her.

Ripple was quickly bred, and to our utter excitement, she delivered a striped male cria. He is not as loudly striped as his mom, but striped nonetheless. "Ripley" has matured nicely and has earned a spot on our Jr Herdsire row. Look for him in the showring!

Ripple is currently bred to Accoyo America Polar Shadow; Polaris himself produced a pinto female for us and we are hoping for something completely outrageous from this pairing!
