Nala is one of two girls on our farm sired by the spectacular 2005 AOBA Grey Color Champion, Emerald Farm's Rincon Cloud, son of Crescent Moon's Rayo De Sol, who is himself the son of the gorgeous grey, Patagonia's Danko. Nala's dam, Grand River Cheila, has been a rock solid foundation dam for Rainier Alpacas, consistently producing show-ring and herdsire quality crias.
Nala is very easy to handle for herd health, but loves to strut her stuff in the pastures! This girl is unmistakably a Rincon Cloud daughter!
Nala certainly takes after her daddy with her proud show-ring presence! She has inherited Rincon's density, and has tiny crimps extending well beyond her blanket, even high up on her neck.
Nala's grey color is in between a classic grey and modern grey. Her face is white, but her legs are dark chocolate brown, and most of the spots she sports are also brown rather than black. Her dam's coloration is very unique too. Cheila was born brown, but is greying out as she ages. We think there is certainly the possibility of pulling some rose grey out of Nala.
Nala's first cria was a beautiful light silver grey girl out of our light fawn herdsire, My Peruvian Equador (check out his skin biopsy numbers by Dr. Norm Evans). Nala grazed through the entire delivery, bonded instantly with her little girl, and had a healthy dose of colostrum awaiting her first meal! She's a natural!
Nala's second cria was a lovely medium brown/modern dark rose grey boy. See his own listing, Landmark Farm's Fellaman.
Update: Nala just delivered her third cria for Mother's Day 2016. See this beautiful girl's own listing, Landmark Farm's Moxie.
Because Nala was agisted when we first bought her, and because of bio-security concerns, she has never been shown.
