daughter of rose-gray Champion Avatar! 15 micron fleece!
is a lovely rose-gray daughter of the Champion
rose-gray Avatar. She has beautiful, extraordinarily
soft, crimpy rose-gray fleece and excellent staple length like
her dam and sire.

Champion wins and he has multiple Champion offspring on the ground,
both gray and other colors.
Misty's dam, Nitika, is a granddaughter of Acero Marka's
Mr. Know It All. Nitika took 2nd Place at the 2007 AOBA Nationals

milk supply, and big, healthy crias that grow really fast. Misty

Champion rose-gray Avatar
Sire to Himalayan Mist
Avatar is not available for outside breedings, his breedings
are restricted to customers only. You won't find many Avatar's
daughters for sale... and none this lovely!
Avatar has wonderful crimpy, dense, and fine fleece, but what
truly separates him from the other outstanding herd sires is his
phenomenal handle - due only in part to the exceptional uniformity
of his fleece. Cameron Holt, AOBA Senior Judge Trainer and world
wide fiber expert, (http://www.cameronholt.com) gave the following
scores to Avatar's fleece: Fineness: 15 out of 15 ; Handle: 5
out of 5 ; Uniformity of micron: 7 out of 8 ; Crimp: 8.5 out of
10 ; Density: 3 out of 5 ; Brightness: 8 out of 10 ; Lack of medullation:
8 out of 10. (Scores are given without regard to color).
Avatar's crias include Futurity and AOBA National Show Champions,
several National Fleece Champions, and numerous Multi-Champion
and Blue Ribbon show winners. More Champions continue to arrive;
West Texas Gold's "How Sweet He Is" won Color Champion
at his very first show, Txolan 2008, beating the 52 other brown
males shown. Delphi's Ava and Appeline also both brought home
Championships from the 2008 SWRAS. Delphi's Devamani, and Avatar's
Ironman (owned by Amy Crane) each received Reserve Championships
at the 2005 Alpaca Futurity in Indianapolis as rose gray juveniles.
Devamani then won the Color Championship from the level 5 Great
Western Alpaca Show and The 2005 AOBA Nationals in Utah. She also
won Color Champion at the 2006 Nationals fleece show. Avatar's
gray son Avalance (owned by Amanda Villareal) was awarded a First
at the Monterey Pronk. Avatar's Fawn son Kanaka, owned by Fossil
Ridge Alpacas, has won many Championships. Kokopelli's Song Alpacas'
Topeka, a medium brown, is a champion as well.
