Congratulations are in order! Bonnie was awarded 2nd place at the 2010 Indiana Alpaca Invitational. Judge David Barboza complimented her staple length, density, and described her as "a very nice package overall".
We are proud to present Wee Bonnie Lass, and a feisty little lass she is! She just had her first cria on Sept. 30th, a light fawn male. She had him unassisted and without any problem. She's an attentive mother with loads of milk, which doesn't surprise us at all. Her dam and grand-dam were wonderful mothers as well.
Her sire, Leprecan is a 12x color champ out of an 8x color champ, Patagonia’s El Trauco. Another notable ancestor is her famous grand-sire, Shackleton!! Her ancestors have certainly passed along presence, conformation, and fiber characteristics to Bonnie! She is squarely built with soft, springy fleece, a stylish head with upright bonnet, and striking presence, just like dad. She's also showing more character and density in her 2nd fleece, again just like dad!
But let’s not leave out her dam, Raquel. She certainly has proven her worth through her offspring and wonderful mothering skills. She comes from a line of heavy milkers too; an awesome trait to pass along to be sure! We expect Bonnie to carry that tradition forward with robust offspring of her own.
August 2013: Just received her histogram at 41 months and she's improved her numbers. That's right, this year's fleece is better than her first 2 fleeces! We can see and feel the difference.
Bonnie gave birth Aug. 28th to very strong MF female cria (see Ciara Keagan). She's an adorable feisty little darling! Bonnie was recently bred to Marco Suave who rates as one of the densest animals in Ian Watt's history. He also has a very fine, uniform fleece which he passes on to his offspring. Bonnie is sure to put an amazing cria on the ground next fall!
