Diomedes' DIRK of Stirling Ridge

HuacayaMaleWhite
ARI# AOA# 31414913   DOB: 7/12/200812 yrs
We must say, with much sadness, Dirk is no longer with us. He had a urinary blockage and had to be put down on May 11, . The vets at WSU tried valiantly to save him, but it was obvious to all that he was going downhill. The Lord gives and the Lord takes away; blessed be the name of the Lord! Job 1:21 He was a phenomenal male. ______________________________________________________________ Look at his 2018 histogram. He's TEN years old. Do you think that might mean lingering fineness? This boy just keeps on amazing us! In 2018, I did a search on OpenHerd of white proven 1/2 Accoyo Peruvian studs, 2 to 9 years old in the U.S. 42 white studs came up with stud fees ranging ...

GRAZING HILLS EPHRAIM

A FINE DENSE stud, 16.7 on 4th shearing!

GRAZING HILLS EPHRAIM

HuacayaMaleDark Brown, Bay Black
ARI# AOA# 32648096   DOB: 7/24/20128 yrs
How do you say SIMPLY GORGEOUS?...we say EPHRAIM! From his incredible head to his toes, the coverage of fine, crimpy fleece will take your breath away. We had originally thought we would send a Diomedes daughter to Colorado to pair with Tuscan Gold, but somehow Athena drew that straw. The minute she delivered Ephraim we knew it had been the right choice. She has always produced dark offspring from light sires, but this shiny black cria was a beautiful surprise, and there were more to come. When we sheared Ephraim as a cria, the rolling skin on his neck and chest were beyond anything we had experienced. You can see some of the rolls in the picture of him at a few weeks. It probably...

Touche is literally that! He's spot on! (But, without the spots!) We recently purchased him and he is bred to several of our females. Excited to see what he puts on the ground! Did you check out his EPDs? They're fantastic and we are proud to have his genetics and gorgeous fleece on our farm! Let us know if you're interested in breedings! 2019 Histogram: AFD: 19.7 SD: 3.8 CV: 19.2 %>30: 1.0...
Stirling Ridge VALORIE

Heavenly APRICOT 16 micron fleece

Stirling Ridge VALORIE

HuacayaFemale (bred)Beige
AOA# DOB: 7/27/20164 yrs
Valorie has our best alpaca, Vanora, as her mama and the beautiful bay black Grazing Hills Ephraim as her sire. She has recently been bred to gorgeous Grazing Hills Hezekiah and is spitting off! We've been wanting a Hezekiah breeding for several years, to get those Running Late genetics on the farm--we're so excited to see what this produces! Between her dam and sire, look at the genetics behind this girl! Pperuvian Leon, Peruvian Hemingway, PPPeruvian Augusto, 4Peruvian Starr Khan, PPPeruvian Cahuide, Sunny Mesa's Tuscan Gold, Hemingway-Accoyo Nautilus, and Accoyo America Diomedes!! Goodness! This little girl is a calm, sweet little beauty and has crimpy, apricot fleece and LOTS of it...
KING HEZEKIAH AT GRAZING HILLS

Gorgeous Fawn Fleece!!

KING HEZEKIAH AT GRAZING HILLS

HuacayaMaleLight Fawn
ARI# AOA# 31543835   DOB: 7/8/20128 yrs
What do you get when you pair a Diomedes/Running Late line with Cochiti?...something amazing! Hezekiah's fleece is incredibly dense for a 16.3 micron, and he has that gorgeous 57 curve statistic. What isn't measured on a histogram is brightness, and his is off the charts. It didn't hurt any that his dam had a 12 micron fleece at her first shearing...her total stats took our breath away...12.4, 2.2, 17.6, 0.2!! Does she ever have a great handle?! He has a proud, kingly stance with upright posture, and he thinks he is king of the farm! He's always ready for a breeding and gets his job done! His first cria, Grazing Hills Liberty, was born July 4th, 2016. She is a beautiful Dark Faw...

Diomedes' VANORA of Stirling Ridge

HuacayaFemale (bred)White
AOA# DOB: 9/19/200811 yrs
Vanora is now bred to Grazing Hills Bradford, due 6/24/2020. They both have amazing fleece with the super inherited quality of lingering fineness and we fully expect this cria to follow in their impressive steps. Vanora's histogram is now posted--very nice! Click on "histogram" for the full report. She has consistently been one of our heaviest fleece weights while being one of our lowest micron. That is a combo we want to keep and reproduce! [Remember this gal is going on 11 years old!] EPD report for 2018: Vanora is in the top 1% again for Fleece Weight, ranking 124 of 44969 in the nation! She has positive traits for every fleece characteristic. More Details
