Here at Zodiac Ranch, we concentrate on breeding only top quality animals, to ensure you years of enjoyment from your new pet. Our philosopy is that it does not take any more to care for the best, so why settle for second rate. We welcome your visit to try a test ride on our smooth Peruvian horses, hug one of our alpacas, or pet a rare Norwegian Buhund dog. Visit our website at www.zodiacranch.com for full details.
Pet males are already discounted and are not included in multiple purchases. Also, terms are available for females with 33% down interest at 1% over prime for 12 Mo. and for males up to 24 months. But, the alpaca must be insured for the full purchase price with Zodiac Ranch named as additional insured. For any male who is a potential herdsire, we will retain two breedings per year as part of the sale contract. Many of our Alpacas are first and 2nd place winners and judges have raved about the quality of our juveniles at many shows. We have bred accordingly to even upgrade the quality and fleeces for the 2011 show season. For 2011, we have babies coming from such well known herdsires as the following: Full Accoyo blue ribbon winner and Color Champion producer Andian Pride, 6-Time Champion Accoyo America Prince, Full Peruvian Grey Wing a grey Nic Nik son, Two Time Black Champion Oro Negro, Zodiac's Solariego (Champion Son of Andian Pride), MFI Peruvian Devastator, and others, etc.
The first 2 crias from Accoyo America Prince in 2009 had follicles per sq mm of 94 and 94.75. They were tested at 5 months and 7 months of age. They were Champion Prince's Peruvian Snowdrop and Prince's Peruvian French Vanilla.
Oro Negro had his first Champion born on our farm in Zodiac's Black Widow and second Champion in Zodiac's Sabine.
Also, we have available top pet quality or better males at great prices with upgrade options to herdsires if you so desire.
