Description ~

BF Riccardo is a very stylish, proud, light to medium fawn male that has been breeding since he was two years old.  Several of his offspring have won color championships, and he has thrown a range of colors.

His sire is the famous, Color Champion, MSA Accoyo Santino, considered the best of Accoyo Dracula's offspring.  Riccardo's dam is Snowmass Andean Amber, who is the only daughter of the renowned Andean Gold, owned by Snowmass Alpacas until his untimely death.

Riccardo's fleece has lots of luscious crimp with gorgeous lock structure.  He has a very soft handling fleece and this is confirmed with his impressive histograms, they reveal a very fine and uniform fleece.  He is also very dense with excellent coverage.  His perfect conformation and awesome presence make him standout as a wonderful herdsire.

We're impressed... our Riccardo crias are arriving and they are absolutely stunning!  He's throwing gorgeous fleeces, perfect conformation and bite, and lots of color.  So far Riccardo's son, AJ's Peruvian Andretti, won 3 Championships.  His son, Walnut Creek Antonio, took 1st place and his daughter, Walnut Creek Jasmine, took 3rd place.  We can't wait to get his new crias in the show ring too! :)

Riccardo's crias sweep the Oklahoma Alpaca Show!
Riccardo wins a 2nd place in the Get of Sire with his crias, which included BF Cleopatra, Walnut Creek Cate, and AJ's Peruvian Banderais.  Riccardo's crias go on to win Blue Ribbon in Breeders Best Three class, which included Walnut Creek Antonio, Walnut Creek Cate, and AJ's Peruvian Banderais.  Antonio wins 1st and Color Champion of the Brown class plus 1st place in Bred and Owned Yearling!  Riccardo's crias are hot!!!
