So excited to have Pale Ale added to our herd, packed with genetics and with the best personality
very easy to work with and w already have 2 of his cria on the ground at Secret World Alpacas. A Female Summer Ale and a male Cria that has been sold.
Now standing stud at Secret World Alpacas.
In the Fall 2012 Shows, CCAP Principio's Pale Ale (Pale Ale) took two Blue Ribbons and two Color Championships! In his other two shows in Fall 2012, he stood behind the eventual Color Champions or Reserve Champions!
Looking for a herdsire with AMAZING FLEECE? And his fleece has that wonderful soft, flexible feel
At the 2012 PAOBA Alpaca Breeders Showcase, the judge gave Pale Ale the Blue Ribbon, commenting that he had highly organized, dense, fine fleece with consistent character over his entire body. Against TOUGH COMPETITION in a large class at MAPACA and combined classes at the Minnesota Alpaca Expo, Pale Ale took a very convincing 3rd place at both shows, with the judges commenting on his spot-on conformation, his dense fleece, well-defined and consistent character, and fineness. The judge never needed to look a 2nd time! Pale Ale was the clear choice winner in Yearling Medium Fawn Males at the 2012 Best of the U.S. Alpaca Show in Columbus, OH. WOW! Density, character, fineness, brightness, conformation, genetics! CCAP Principio's Pale Ale has it all! And the judges are taking note of these positive traits as Pale Ale placed at the top of the lineup Fall 2011, finishing 2nd to the eventual Color Champion at the 2011 Royal Alpaca Challenge (our very own CCAP Golden Rumm), and getting pulled up for serious consideration for Reserve Champion! Pale Ale got close consideration for a Blue Ribbon at the 2011 OABA Alpacafest (losing by "a hair" on staple length) and getting a solid look for Reserve Champion from 2nd place, at the 2011 Kentucky Classic.
