Derwydd Alpacas proudly co-owns this fantastic male with Delphi Alpacas and Prairie Moon Alpacas.
Zeppelin is “STAYIN in California!” He'll be standing stud at Derwydd Alpacas from November through April so reserve your breedings now! I can't begin to tell you how thrilled I am to be able to have Zep breeding at Derwydd. Its going to be a busy fall 2017 here at Derwydd, so if you plan on a fall breeding with Zep, reserve early, as we will only be doing a set number of breedings to him, then he gets to rest till Feb when he starts again. He will be leaving end of April 2018. Zep has been mainly used in a dark breeding program. We are very interested to see what he can do over White/Light! Really looking forward to that retained fineness across all colors in our herd. Zeppelin offers correct conformation, impressive presence, size, coverage, and substance of bone

Zeppelin is the 2013 AOBA National Black Male Fleece Champion and sire to multiple champion offspring. With his FOURTH fleece, Zeppelin won the 2013 AOBA National Black Male Fleece Color Championship. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg on his accomplishments! Here are some of his fleece statistics -
Zep’s Histograms:
2009: AFD 15.7 / SD 2.8 / CV 18.0 / 0.2 % >30
2010: AFD 16.9 / SD 2.9 / CV 16.9 / 0.4% >30
2011: AFD 17.7 / SD 3.3 / CV 18.4 / 0.8 % >30
2012: AFD 19.8 / SD 3.9 / CV 19.7 / 2.1% >30
2013: AFD 20.4 / SD 4.1 / CV 19.9 / 3.0% >30
Zep’s Shearing Weight:
2009: 6 pounds total = 7.2 pounds annualized
2010: 9.5 pounds total = 8.75 pounds annualized
2011: 10.1 pounds annualized
2012: 10.8 pounds annualized

His cria have been 'collected' by some VERY prestigious farms!
– His first cria to ever show, fawn Zeppelin’s Rainsong, purchased by The Alpaca Group, won a color championship at her first show!
– We are honored that Zeppelin’s genetics have also been chosen by Pacific Crest Alpacas / Accoyo America.
– Snowmass Alpacas purchased from Delphi Alpacas (our co-owners of Zep), one black Zeppelin daughter and 3 black females bred to Zeppelin; as well as a female bred to him from another farm.
- The pick of the litter in 2012 at Delphi was Deltana – a fawn with the kind of fleece you dream of. She’s off to the great breeding program at A Paca Fun Farm!

Zeppelin has over 106! cria on the ground so far, and he is throwing a lot of black. 43 black cria! Out of the dams that were black (18) he only threw lighter (LF,MF & DF) 3 times.. so ya, he covers a LOT o black to pull black out of other colors 28 times.. Literally has no registered White crias!
But regardless of color, with Zeppelin it’s ALL about the fleece quality he throws in his cria - and just how marketable that makes them! NPA Tessla, a 2011 cria sold for $18,000 at auction in 2012, shortly after winning Color Champ, Best Brightness and Best Hand at the Alpacamania Fleece Show (Tessla’s yearling histogram: AFD 12.7, SD 2.0, CV 15.6, %>30 0.0)!
