The only EVER gray alpaca to have 6 Judges' Choice wins and a Grand Champion win.

There are no two ways about it: Red Granites Alydar By Val D Lsere is our favorite choice amoungst the Red Granites Val D Lsere sons. He is a standout champion male in every sense.

SIMPLY STUNNING!

Like his sire, he has extreme FINE fiber all over his entire body, having the best uniformity we have yet to see in Val D Lsere's gray/dark colored progeny. His brightness is overwhelming for being a dark-colored animal, and his long staple + heavy cutting fleece makes things a whole lot better! Imagine a superfine merino style fleece in a modern rose grey coloration covering its whole body, with a heavy fleece, long staple, and blindling brightness, then you can envision Alydar.

His Dam was a COLOR CHAMPION at the 2015 Futuirty in the Black female class, and was the star black female during her show career, taking home many championship titles under top judges. She has one of the finest black fleeces we have produced from her dam, and was the finest black/dark from the 2013 cria group.

Alydar is a respected 28X Champion and 6X Judges' Choice winner and a Grand Champion winner -- he has proven his fleece/his lineage very well. He also helped his sire win the 2021 Futurity Herdsire of the Year for Dark-Colored Offspring as well as 2021 Futurity Herdsire of the Year in the Large Breeder Division.

Alydar is currently is our highest rated males for breedings in 2022. I mean at a little over 2-years of age his micron test read 17.5!! FINE, FINE, FINE with INTENSE CURV!!! His fleece has been described as "angel-like and delicate" with "superior uniformity of micron" and carries the "dangerous combination of fineness and density". And we can't forget the words from Kevin O'Leary when he recieved the Futurity Judges' Choice award: "This gray male is so uniform and fine, we felt he was such an incredible example of his color group that he deserves to be recognized for this advancement." He has been noticed for something that only he may hold in this gray breeding world. In fact, the judges from this 2021 Fall Show season that remember him have said that Alydar has gotten finer, more uniform, and a lot more dense….

We NEED many more grays like Alydar in the world-wide breeding program to ensure the alpaca world can bring gray to the same fiber quality as white. He is now settling females for 2022 crias! First cria is due May 22, 2022, confirmed by ultrasound, along with over five other confirmed ultrasound females due for 2022!

6X AOA NATIONAL SHOW GREY BANNER WINNER
