SMALL FARM SPECIAL: Lease Blackjack this year for $1000 and get 3 breedings for yourself, or sell one of them if you don't need 3. Look at the fleece characteristics and phenotype he's passed on to his first 2 offspring. We are a small farm and can't breed him to our whole herd but he's too nice to just hang out in my pasture & barn!
Blackjack's first cria - Margarita - got a 1st place in Dark Bred & Owned at Southern Select, Spring Bling and Small Breeders Challenge. His son Gambler placed 1st in Brown Juvenile Halter at the Small Breeders Challenge.
We now have a male & female offspring and another on the way, so we've decided to share these beautiful genetics with another farm. Act now before we change our mind and keep him!
Blackjack's first cria are here! Two beautiful crias - healthy, confirmationally correct, beautiful phenotypes! Contact us now to reserve a discounted breeding! Blackjack is a robust, mature male - he is the perfect stud you want to find in your pasture. He travels well - drive by breeding work best for you? Contact us now. Keep your females with Cria at side at home!
Just got his Spin-Off results from Alpaca Blast-off last week - 2nd place with a score of 91 out of 100! Awesome! Nice comments from the handcraft spinner/ judge. Contact me and requst a sample - he is staying so soft and fine!
Bright, crimpy, SOFT, luxurious black fiber - with a "stylish" (awesome!) typey head (full fleece!) and absolutely flawless conformation with a show record to back up this claim!
His fiber is fine, yet dense. Fiber analysis reveals an 20.9 micron count at 2 yrs. The handle is superb - soft and crimpy fiber that cannot be overlooked. And, he had over 5 inches of staple length last year! WOW!
Blackjack has managed to sneak all the remarkable traits of his genetic ancestors (Lanark’s Expresso, Drambuie, and Dom Timbo) into his perfect conformation, luxurious fiber, and macho personality package. He is a robust male - broad and full framed - perfect! As an added bonus, he adds his own gentle-yet-inquisitive personality to his own package.
The offspring of a True Black dam (Black Magic) and a Grey sire (Pride of America-a Dom Timbo son), Blackjack is a TRUE Black with a few grey spots - or is he a grey with a whole lot of black??
UPDATE! Blackjack has two more confirmed pregnancies with positive progesterone tests. This sire is ready to create awesome crias for your herd too!
We will retain up to 3 breedings to be used in the next two years.
