A tremendous impact was made on the breeding program of TIMBERLAND ALPACAS in 1994 with their acquisition of Pperuvian Accoyo Victor. Victor was the youngest male that arrived in the Peruvian importation of 1994, and in the words of the late Dr. Jim Vickers, had the “most beautiful” fleece and was the only alpaca in tht importation that he ranked as a 4+ in fleece. Victor’s fleece swept the awards in the 1995 AOBA National Fleece Show, garnering awards for Best Growth Huacaya, Most Uniform Huacaya, Best Crimp Huacaya, Spinner’s Choice, and Cottage Industries’ Choice. At the 1997 AOBA National Fleece Show, Victor’s fleece took first place for Adult Fawn Huacaya, and overall Knitter’s Choice Huacaya. In his prime,Victor sheared an incredible 14 ½ pounds per year with over 8 pounds of blanket, and a staple length of over 6 inches. Victor’s offspring, and each subsequent generation, have won innumerable awards in the show ring and in fleece shows, and include many first place and championship awards in colors ranging from white, fawn, brown, to black. The hallmarks of Victor fleece genetics are superior crimp, density, luster, fineness, and excellent staple length along with his ability to transmit all of these qualities in a wide range of colors. Although Victor is no longer with us, the trademark style of the “Victor crimp” continues to be widely known in the North American alpaca industry. Many of his sons are now premier herd sires in their own right. Residing on our ranch and now inheriting the title of “Premier Herd Sires of
TIMBERLAND ALPACAS are Victor’s direct sons, Victor’s Hemiaccoyo Apocalypse and Victor’s Hemiaccoyo Grand Finale. Still co-owned by us, but residing at Clayfarm Alpacas is Victor’s Valedar. Other outstanding Victor sons who have also made their mark in North America are Victor’s Hemiaccoyo Americano, Victor’s Vaccoyo, Victor’s Hemiaccoyo Casanova, and Victor’s Hemiaccoyo Aristocrat. In 2012, Victor’s grandsons are also part of the TIMBERLAND ALPACAS Foundation Herd Sires list – Apocalypse’s Hemiaccoyo Coppertop and Ferrari’s Hemiaccoyo Kashmir each have their first 2011 offspring on the ground.
