Update: Puddle Jumper's first crias are here! Check them out below!!

Pud is a lovely boy sired by the late TRULY GREAT black herdsire, Black Mesquite. Mesquite was co-owned by Magical Farms and Flying Pony Alpacas. Breedings to Mesquite were restricted and he commanded a stud fee of $7500!

Puddle Jumper's dam is a daughter of My Peruvian Osbydian and granddaughter of Mr. President. She is certainly an attention grabber with the WOW factor because of her rare fawn and brown patterned fleec...

Landmark Farm's Autumn Jewel

Huacaya, Female, Proven, Light Silver Grey, 1/2 Peruvian, 1/2 Chilean
ARI# 32319644 | DOB: 10/15/2012


Autumn Jewel was born in a splash of fall color and was an exceptionally nice cria for her first-time mom and our senior herdsire, My Peruvian Equador.

Pairing Nala Cloud, one of our lovely silver greys sired by the west coast's Rincon Cloud, with our very proven light fawn herdsire (check out Equador's skin biopsy numbers!), resulted in such a gorgeous grey cria that we repeated the breeding! One of our mentors, Tripp Forstner of Magical Farms, was kind enough to drop in for a visit...

Description

Jewel's first cria was not actually sold. He has always belonged to his owner's, Brian and Linda Wentz, of Hidden Springs Farm, Stony Point, NC. We needed to make a page for Cracker Jack and list him as sold just so he would show up under the progeny of his sire and dam, Landmark Farm's Puddle Jumper and Landmark Farm's Autumn Jewel. The Wentzs purchased Jewel pregnant, and Cracker Jack was birthed at our farm.

Cracker Jack stunned us with the color and quality of his fleece! We were never expecting such a light color out of the pairing of his sire and dam with their heavily-colored backgrounds, including a lot of grey and black. Never mind that, he is one of those crias that makes you grin knowing that he looks like he might mature to be better than BOTH of his parents!

He is a handsome boy with presence and beautifully conformed, straight conformation. He has a very pretty head and is very heavily-fibered down to his toes. Before his first shearing, at 6 days old, his fleece was very silky, very bright, and was formed into tight ringlets in a long staple. Our shearer kept running his hands through his fleece and saying "WOW, I love this kind of fleece!" Cracker Jack was already showing re-growth just one week after shearing, and it was amazingly "lumpy" with the start of significant crimp and we will not be surprised if he has 5 inches of fiber on him by next Spring!

Congratulations to the Wentzs on the birth of their beautiful first cria!
