What a pedigree on this girl, and it shows in her fleece.
We are suckers here for handle and brightness - and this lady still exhibits the softness and character that makes us anticipate great things.

"Tupie" is a great mom, an easy keeper, and full of personality. Lots of milk and nicely protective of her daughters! We adore her very maroon spotted colors too - she really stands out.

Bidding Info

Description

This one has my heart -
a face that would melt an iceberg.
Bright, soft crimpy fleece - super fine.
Can you Imagine the baby this girl will have with Ike or Avatar?

Note - the Current Auction bids for Ticket do Not include a breeding for her to our sires.
However she may be purchased with a complementary breeding - see below.

Histogram from 5-16-14 shearing (alpaca consulting) =
AFD 15.71 / SD 3.1 / CV 19.74 / 100% CF

Ticket is very hard for us to let go - she has extremely rare fleece qualities as well as a beautiful beautiful look.
She is very easy to recommend to anyone looking for an opportunity to obtain the very best of grey genetics at a great price.
The idea of Ticket bred to either Ike or Avatar is beyond exciting.
