PHA Accoyo Stratosphere - The Genetics of Strat's Offspring
Stratosphere's ARI registration is short indeed - it simply reads Accoyo Astillero (import) X Accoyo Legacy (import). As many of the original imports, both Strat's sire and dam are deceased, Strat is about as close as you can get to coming right off Don Julio's Accoyo Ranch in Peru. Strat carries very highly respected genetics of superdam, Astillero, who produced Accoyo Armondo who was Hilltop Alpacas top Accoyo stud, 4X Champion, Accoyo Francisco of Heather Acres Alpacas and our own champion with 3 blue ribbons, Accoyo Zagot.
Strat's sire is the legendary Accoyo Legacy. Accoyo Peruvian Legacy is the 2002 AAA Futurity Herdsire of the Year, the 2005 AAA Futurity Reserve Light Herdsire of the Year and a Blue Ribbon Get of Sire winner in 2002, 2003, 2004 & 2005.
1/2 Interest in Legacy was sold for $750,000 making Legacy’s market driven price worth 1.5 million dollars and therefore the first Million Dollar Alpaca.
His record and his excellence are undeniable. His progeny includes some of the most visible alpacas in the North American Alpaca industry. Names such as Crescent Moon’s Kryptonite, Crescent Moon’s Romeo, Crescent Moon’s Fiber Optic, Crescent Moon’s Pinnacle, Snowmass Legacy Gold, Snowmass Perfection, Snowmass Legacy’s Lustroso, Snowmass Millenium & many, many others. His name, on any certificate, adds immediate value and recognition and his name is now one of LEGEND.
With the passing of Legacy, his rare full Accoyo offsping are that much more valuable, and Stratosphere is one of those offspring, even more rare because of his dark color and the undisputed success of his cria in the showring. The Legacy now continues through the quality and the color of Strat's cria.

Long before we ever dreamed of the possibility of co-owning Stratosphere, we purchased an outside breeding to Strat for one of our best females. We knew Accoyo Truman was special from the first moment we saw him. So did Kevin and Martha Cady of Gentle Breeze Alpacas who purchased half interest in him before he was even weaned. They are certainly glad they did! To date, Truman has earned three championship banners (in his first 3 fleece shows) One was from the Level 4 AFCNA Fleece Show and he also took The Judge's Choice Award in Michigan 2010.
