Accoyo Poseidon daughter Gabriella is a Reserve Champion and Multiple blue ribbon winner. She has fawn Accoyo genetics, and is bred for Fineness to Accoyo America Tempest ARI #31097352 for 7/2015 cria.
I never dreamed I'd have as fine a female as Poseidon's Accoyo Gabriella, but at the 2008 AOBA auction I took a deep breath and BID!! We knew we were taking advantage of the recession to be able to buy her, and we have never regretted that decision. Gabby is a compact to average sized female with strong fawn Accoyo genetics. She's a great mother, and her fawn bloodlines paid off with a light fawn male cria by Matrix in 2013! You can see that she did well in the shows, with a blue ribbon from a large class at the GWAS, and a RC at the AlpacaFest West. She has a pronounced, high amplitude crimp from her Poseidon/Caligula ancestors, and a cute conformation as well. She's been a devoted mother to her crias (even letting other crias nurse off her). We have only bred her to the best we could afford--Royal Fawn (we won the Alpaca Research Foundation raffle), and Matrix (a rare breeding purchased at the IAO herdsire auction). Gabby is bred to our top 1%EPD/IAO Champion fleece/1st place Get of Sire male, Accoyo America Tempest--a Hemi-Accoyo Nautilus son, to bring extreme fineness and knock-out density to her cria. This should be an outstanding cria!
A note of caution--I have learned from Gabby that there is a reason that an alpaca is named, "Gabriella" or "Gabby". Our Gabby is a "squealer"--she's docile and is easy to handle, but she is VERY "chatty"!
Gabby has moved to our ranch in the North San Francisco Bay area. She's lovin' the cooler summer days!
