Sir Accoyo Pretty Boy "Coy", is Max's sire who is out of, Accoyo Francisco, the 4x color champion with 15 blue ribbons to his name. Coy has shown how strong his genetics are with both of his male offspring, as standing studs, and his female offspring have become superb foundation females. Coy produces over 5 pounds of prime fleece each year and it is used on our ranch to make our finest 'next to skin' products. Coy's grandsire is none other than the infamous El Nino- the 8x blue ribbon winner. El Nino has been influential and improved alpaca genetics in the US with over 220 offspring on record. Coy's dam is a multi-ribbon, color champion in her own rite, with ancestry that includes the white sire direct from Peru chosen for his brilliant fleece and unparalleled density - PPPeruvian Vengador.

Max s maternal grandsire is Alpaca Knight s Mr. Sparks, the multiple ribbon winner with the rare non-fading true black fleece, who passes his stature and fine, dense fleece to his offpsring. Mr. Sparks sire is Legend's Challenger of KPR, one of the "hottest" greys in the country. Challenger consistently throws show quality and champion cria. Max's maternal grand-dam, Cassidy, is our foundation gray female who produces show quality offspring. Cassidy is daughter of Quasar, MSG, Reserve Champion and granddaughter of the industry standard setting for gray fineness and fleece character, Color Champion, Shaquille.
Max's has luscious medium brown fleece that has tight, crimpy bundles, a rich and velvety dark coloring, high luster and a very soft handle with a high comfort level. His fleece also has a high frequency crimp structure from skin to tip with a well-defined high bundling factor.
