Crescent Moon's Shiftin Gears; like his name, this Stud was an ELITE male who shifted things into gears, with PERUVIAN & ACCOYO genetics to produce fine superior heavy-fleeced alpacas. He was a direct son of 6Peruvian Accoyo Elite 5057 crossed with a Full Peruvian, Peruvian Geronimo G187 daughter to give him the consistency in his fineness over a touch of a heavy fleece weight that has weighted 14 pounds in 2010. He is one of great looks on top of his beautiful fleece.

He was judges twice under the amazing Julio Sumar and placed very well.

When having the chance to partner with Crescent Moon Ranch (Debbie & Scott Miller) to co-own this multi-champion superstar back in 2010 we could not turn the opportunity down. Its was not everyday you got your hands on a Peruvian/Accoyo male who is a direct son of 6Peruvian Accoyo Elite. His stud fee's were offered for $7,500.....

Crescent Moon's Shiftin Gears was the epitome of genetic excellence, whose legacy has sadly ended on February 15, 2021. Crescent Moon & Red Granite Ranch made an incredibly tuff decision to put Shiftin down after we found his femur had shattered and was not fixable. Shiftin's progeny excelled in the show ring, earning championship banners across the U.S., including AOBA Nationals and the Futurity. His offspring proved to be the best in fleece weight, brightness, fineness, density, and consistency. We are very glad to have a few of his lead female and male offspring locked into our herd. Shiftin made a HUGE impact in the industry and we are very proud to be a part of this males legacy.

Rest easy Shifty.
