Bidding Info


Onyx is a beautiful true black out of a tux grey dam. Onyx was born to an audience during National Alpaca Farm Days. Her dam, Jubilee, is an easy birther, and the view as the rest of the girls circled around to visit created a spectacular show for the ranch guests. Even with all the attention, Onyx was up and nursing in less than 30 minutes to the applause of the spectators!

The quality that Onyx presented convinced her original owners that she should be shown at the California Classic (twice) and the Dixon Caper. The judges were very taken with (and commented on) her outstanding conformation and the uniformity of her fiber. She has lovely, soft, dense, crimpy fleece that hand spinners love!

Onyx’s first cria (courtesy of Menagerie Hill’s CMN Amego) is on the ground and he is a pistol! With beautiful medium brown fleece with black points!

On June 2, 2015, Onyx had a stunning tux grey boy from our silver grey 4x Champ, Sebastian! Onyx is a great mom with lots of milk, and would be a great addition to any grey or color breeding program.

On September 12, 2016, Onyx had a gorgeous tux grey boy from our rose grey Champ herdsire, Snowmass Enlightenment.
