Temptation is a HERITAGE STUD FEMALE and Dam to the best offspring we have ever produced-two beautiful females Heritage Peruvian Temptress and Conopa's Andean Moondancer XX and a True Black Running Late son named Black Ice . It was devastating when he passed away on his first birrthday of bladder stones.
She is still gorgeous at 11 years old

Our very first Zion granddaughter this incredibly lovely red-brown female did quite well in the showring for us under stiff competition. We are thrilled to be able to breed her to PCA Hemingway's Nautilus who we believe is Hemingway's best son, hoping for a colored offspring of either sex. 9/16/11 we got just what we ordered from this breeding-TEMPTRESS-a dark fawn female, very crimpy, with density off the charts but a very fine fleece and no medulation, a carbon copy of her dam only a bit lighter. Temptress is already following in her dam's footsteps in the showring in 2012. I am so confident in her quality at birth that we opted to breed her to SNOWMASS MATRIX twice, keeping both offspring and Temptress is now bred to Jacob Black son Carbon Copy

We then kept Temptation open for the right opportunity so we snapped up a breeding to Snowmass Conopa before he went into quarantine for Canada and becomes unavailable in the USA! 7/7/2013 another spectacular girl Moondancer this one beige with fleece to rival her sister but denser. As soon as she dried off we knew we had another TRIPLE WOW!! Moondancer went straight to our foundation herd after an excellent show career.

9/18/15 Another girl! Brilliant white this time she was up and nursing in 20 minutes. She weighed in at 20lb with tree trunk legs and solid body. Her fleece is going to be super dense with excellent character and fineness. Her name is Sweet Serenity-SOLD to Sopris Alpacas

Temptation will be rebred to PC Running Late hoping for another black! 2019 A stylish white girl and the first girl from this match named Fashionably Late. We'll try again for color this year. This is the 5th time we have made this An incredibly bright fine Brown male we will see how this one develops. Rebred to Running Late!
One of the smartest and gentlest alpacas, she is one of my favorites-When she finishes her breeding career she will retire here on our farm.
