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 Seraphina

Huacaya, Female, Proven, Bay Black, 1/2 Peruvian, 1/2 Chilean
ARI# 32730050 | DOB: 10/20/2013
Seraphina is one big beautiful girl! She has the most exquisite carriage and is simply elegant when she moves!

Seraphina's maternal line hails from extremely hardy Chilean stock that produces big crias, with very high IgG's, that grow big fast. She did not lose a single ounce on the day after her birth. Instead, she gained four pounds in her first five days! She was weaned at 5 1/2 months at 78 pounds!

Seraphina's sire, My Peruvian Equador, has put an upgraded fleece on her. At bir...

Description

There is a rather long story behind Pandolfi's naming! It had partly to do with family's insistence since they missed his birth because his dam was intent on setting the farm's record for longest gestation (hence Pokey), and the other part was a dream where he was being named for our favorite pianist, Emile Pandolfi, who has since met his namesake in person!

Pandolfi is the third cria born on our farm out of our Black Mesquite son, Landmark Farm's Puddle Jumper. He was born at a very healthy 19.3 pounds and, as is typical for his maternal line, had an IgG that went off the chart at greater than 2851! It was an uneventful birth for his first-time dam and, as is also typical of his maternal line, she milks like a Jersey cow and Pandolfi gained six pounds in just his first nine days!

Pandolfi has correct conformation and a gentle disposition. While he is of course full of himself, as all yearlings are, he has been pretty exceptional about being handled.

Pandolfi's fleece is the same dark bay black as his dam's, only with a few adorable white markings ... a lightening bolt on his forehead and a little white bow tie! Emile Pandolfi commented he was honored to have a cria named after him, especially one dressed in a tux no less!

When he was cria sheared, our shearer noted that Pandolfi had some very "interesting architecture" to his fleece. Indeed, his fleece has developed into a very long staple, with a soft handle, lovely crimp and very nice brightness. It is very much like his dad's at the same age, and we have noticed that when his dad is paired with one of our Equador girls, we are getting fleece like dad's award-winning Judges Choice in Spin Off competitions!

Stay tuned for updates and new photos as Pandolfi grows up. We are already looking forward to having his yarn in our shop this year. Just beautiful!

Awards

Landmark Farm does not show in halter classes because of the expense, the stress on both the alpacas and their humans, and for bio-security concerns.
