Athena is the daughter of Peruvian Camilla!

Camilla is a Peruvian Import from the Alianza Herd. You can take a look at Camilla and read about her awards on her own page.

Athena's Maternal Brother is Peruvian Zephyrus. Zephyrus has taken the blue ribbon or Champion Ribbon in every show he has entered including the National AOBA show. Athena offers these great genetics as well. Her conformation is solid, she sits squarely on her frame, she has buttery soft fiber with bundles throughout. Her crimp is consistent and uniform.

Athena, like a true Goddess, not only produced 12 pounds of fleece, she did it while growing a 21 pound cria. Yes, that is right, we took 12 pounds of fleece off of this female and four days later, she delivered a 21 pound cria and that was her first cria. She can do it all.

If you add the weight of her cria, the placenta and all the fiber we clipped off of her, she lost about 40 pounds in a matter of days! It is pretty amazing that this little girl could produce that amount of fleece while nurturing her little boy. She is a stellar producer in every way.

Her Cria:
2005 Hercules
2006 Ice Storm
2007 Alabama
2008 Apollo
2009 Aletha
2010 Destino
2011 Grace
2013 Titan

Athena was bred to Midnight Rider in 2006 for her 2007 cria. That was a match like no other. It produced Benchmark's Peruvian Sweet Alabama - you can see Alabama on her own page. Alabama is undefeated and is one of the most spectacular Alpacas I have ever seen.

Athena blew us away again in 2010 with Destino (see our male huacaya listings). He is all that Alabama is - and then some!! We are looking forward to adding him to our Herd Sire Row when he is ready.

Athena just gave birth on 9/28/11 to an AMAZING Yago daughter! Her name is Grace and she is Full sibling to Destino and really just breathtaking.

It is a rare occassion that Athena has been made available.
