Description


Cadence is the very proud matriarch of Landmark Farm! One of our first foundation dams out of two Chilean imports, we are ready to retire her from making babies. She has earned it at 17 years old!

Cadence is a sweet girl with a mischievous streak! She can be quite the character and is a wonderful guard alpaca, sometimes taking on a watch station along side our livestock guardian dog. Visitors love her huge doe eyes and can't decide if her right eye looks like she has smudged makeup, or if she had one heck of a night and came home with a shiner! She is gentle for herd health management, but also loves to blast out into the pasture bucking the whole way! It is a joy watching the unbridled exuberance of our oldest girl! The gentle hills of our pastures and our cool mountain climate appear to be very much to her liking! This girl came from some very thrifty, hardy stock, passing exceptionally strong immune systems to her crias, with very high IgG's at birth. Cadence is looking darn good for her age!

Cadence's dark silver grey fleece is very close to being black, and has the most marvelous bluish tinge to it. Some of her grey offspring have the same bluish tinge to their fleeces as well, like little blue-haired ladies! She has maintained very good coverage in her advancing years and her fleece is still under 30 microns, which is quite exceptional for an older grey! We still use Cadence's fleece for rug yarn and roving for felting.

The only way Cadence would ever leave our farm now, would be if she were in the perfect forever sanctuary home, where she would have top-notch veterinary care, shearing, nutrition, shelter, predator-proof pasture and some alpaca buddies. Cadence will still be able to provide a fiber artist with an annual clip or, if she is just a pet, her fleece can be sold inexpensively to help defray her feed costs.

We don't expect that will really ever happen, so Cadence can at least grow old in her forever home at Landmark Farm Alpacas in her second life as a pet and pasture ornament!
