Grand River Columbo is a gorgeous son of Rincon Cloud. We purchased him from Whistler's Glen and Coffee Pot farms in Ohio to bring some rare gray genetics to our farm and the Midwest. He has put some stunning cria on the ground for those two farms as well as their customers. His fleece is holding the crimp structure very well for a breeding male. It is quite consistent throughout his entire frame. His fineness is incredible and he is dense, dense, dense. Really a well rounded alpaca in a ...

Soltera means single female. She was the only female cria born in a year that brought us 8 males so the name seemed obvious!
Soltera is a very pretty female. She has a ton of luscious fiber packed on a compact body. She's not gray but her daddy is!
Her sire is our Columbo so there is lots of gray in her lineage. Her grandsire is Emerald Farms' Rincon Cloud. Her mother Laura Ross brings in the genetics of Accoyo Michelangelo, El Nino, Lancaster and Conan.
She was not cria shorn so her fiber is quite long but at the base there is very good crimp coming in. It is bright and very fine. She will be in our show string.

Happy to get that cria fleece off her! Soltera has lovely fleece coming in. Histogram has been sent in and will be updated as soon as it is received.

UPDATE Really impressive histogram came back on Soltera. 14.7 with .2% over 30!!
I know she's just a youngster but that's VERY fine even on a cria!

Gray breeders take note! Columbo continually produces offspring with very fine fleece.
