Exquisite, Expressive and Exceptional describe CurlyTop’s OpalEssence, the epitome of a breeding female. She has such style, grace and presence that she can be easily picked out of any pasture. Essence's conformation is spot-on with stunning proportions and solid bone. Her regal carriage is enhanced by the classic huacaya look that we all love, heavy leg coverage and a beautiful head.

Her linage includes award winning bloodlines from Mr. President, My Peruvian Durango, Guellermo and Vendgador, making her a genetic powerhouse to add genetic strength to any program. Her abundant fleece has a very impressive staple and consistent architecture with nice brightness and a lovely handle.

A special note, Essence has a wonderful inquisitive personality and is always the first to come right up to visitors in the pasture making her a wonderful ambassador for all alpacas. Even bred, she does not lose this wonderful trait - she continues to be friendly and social with both humans and herd mates.

Essence is an exceptional dam - very nurturing and protective and we are proud to offer her latest cria, Quintessential Black Onyx at her side. Onyx is a true black male with consistent color like his father, Challenger’s Best Man, and has his mother’s spot-on conformation.

This wonderful female will be bred to Brookhollow's Cosmo, an amazing award winning sire out of Snowmass Nova. This combination is sure to produce an amazing cria!

OpalEssence is an impressive young female who will add strong, well balanced genetics to your program. She is a female that you will be proud to have. Essence and Cosmo are both ribbon winners and both are boarding at Hidden Pastures in beautiful Branchville, NJ. Take the time to look closely at this impressive young female--the Essence of the perfect female for your farm.
