Drifter's Fickle

HuacayaFemaleMedium Fawn
AOA# DOB: 10/18/20118 yrs
Fickle is a sweet mild mannered girl. She did well at MAPACA 2014 , getting a third place ribbon.. Judge loved her coverage and crimp style. Fickle is not a large girl. She has a smaller frame with thick bone. Her sire is none other than the well known TGF Drifter . Drifter's cria's have been in high demand as breeding stock. Her dam is a dark brown Goldsmith daughter, Sonador, whose crias have been fabulous. She has Felix and Goldsmith on her dams side with Legacy and El Nino on her sires side. Fickle had her most recent cria in spring of 2019 - a beautiful bay black male out of Alpine's Carderock. She is an amazing mother with an overwhelming amount of milk. Spring 2020 - Fick...

We purchased this Houdini breeding several years ago, but a few attempts didn't work out, so we took one of our favorite producers, Petra out for the breeding. Once and done, Petra came home pregnant and had a completely problem free pregnancy - and delivery. We knew this one would be white, or would have been surprised if he wasn't! What surprised us on the day we tipped him was the huge extra folds of skin on his neck and shoulder area. This boy is going to be DENSE! He is built like a little Sherman Tank. Standing shorter than the other crias born at the same time, this guy has at least 20 or more pounds on them! He stands solid as a rock. Each time his Juvie fleece was shown ...

After a bit of a difficult labor, Eternity graced us with this lovely young lady. From the minute she hit the ground, we knew she was something special. Pink is what we call a talker. Just touch her and she'll tell you about it. She is very people friendly and loves to talk with the visitors. Her genetics are a book of Who's Who. She's also graced us with the finest fiber to date on the farm - an amazing 16.7! We have been happy with every cria she's produced. She is one of our best foundations girls. But for the first time, we are offering her for sale. She's done great things for our breeding program, she could do it for yours as well. June 2015 ~ Pink just had a beautiful coppery m...

When we decided to add a black herdsire to our lineup, we knew that Black Warrior was the boy we wanted. He is the full package, beautiful typey head, fleece that rivals light color fleece and genetics that are spectacular and new to our herd. We hope to be able to continue on with our friend Alan's plan for this fine young male. We are truly impressed with his lack of guard hair and density in his true black fleece. We are looking forward to putting some color into our herd. Histogram for Black Warrior: 1st Year: 19.1/22.2/1.7 2nd Year: 20.7/19.7/2.1 Spring 2015 ~ Warrior's first 2 cria are on the ground!

We were blown away by this little girl's bundled fleece. She has retained her beautiful fleece in her second year and has shown well at her only 2 shows. Very outgoing personality and loves to talk to you. She's a do anything alpaca. Winning reds, blues and all colors in obstacles, showmanship and even costume. With the lines behind this girl we expect she will become an excellent foundation female. We bred her to Velasco de Alta Vista. We think this male was a perfect match for this lovely girl. ** Pia delivered a gorgeous LF male out of Velasco early in October 2015! ** Pia's second cria was a delightful multi out of the award winning sire Hobby Horse of a Different Color ** ...

Jabby is a strong, fast growing girl. She has a great personality and talks all the time, thus the name. Her dam has produced 2 girls for us now and her sire has always been one of my personal favorites. She has a pretty, dense fleece with really good staple length and crimp this year at shearing. 5/19 - Jabby just gave birth to her first cria. She has one of the loveliest fleeces that I've ever seen! A repeat breeding to Verano might be in order!...

This little girl was born late in the day to a first time mom. Mom really was puzzled what all the fuss was about and really didn't think she should be responsible for this tiny thing in the pen with her. We were leaving for a large weekend show and knew that the baby would have to be bottle fed. Thanks to the dedicated help from our great friends Mickie & Terry and their kids, Hope finally allowed Diamond to nurse from her. Diamond grew up nicely and has been a good mom to Xena. ...

I liked her enough to breed her to the infamous Man of Steel from Cloverleaf Alpacas.

Last fall, I found Spots at Rare Gem Alpacas and his track record for throwing spots was "spot" on. Spots arrived in Pennsylvania in the Fall of 2019 and we put him to work immediately. He has an easygoing personality, gets the job done quickly and efficiently and the fleece - well, I don't know that I've had one this dense ever. His shearing this year produced nearly 50% more fiber than anyone else. As you can see from the pictures, the spots are apparent right after shearing but blend in once the fleece grows in. Contac...

Who would have thought our tiniest baby - just 11# would turn out to be the spunkiest one of them all. Even though she was born extremely early at just 305 days, she was up and running right away. She's had great weight gain since birth and has been healthy and playful. She is bold and not afraid to approach people. Her fleece has great density which we expected from a breeding to one of our densest girls and Accoyo America Enterprise. Jemma has continued to grow quicker than any of our other 2013 crias. No one would have guessed her tiny size to start. She is the most friendly, curious youngster we have on the farm....

Jasmine's first cria was a gorgeous MSG female out of super fine and dense Lancaster's Silver Centaur. She is better known as the Dam of the 10x (or more) Gray Champion Quixotic's Man of Steel. Her daughter Venus who we are lucky enough to own is a full sister of the Dam of Man of Steel. On our farm, Jasmine has given us 2 (so far) amazing cria.

Hope is everything we knew she would be - a breeding with our best girl + our best guy = fantastic! Hope does have a brown spot on her shoulder so she should be able to produce color when bred to color. We've worked hard to achieve our white breeding program and it's paying off with crimp and density along with some of the best and the straightest conformation I've seen. Hope is worth a look if you want to breed for quality white animals. Hope gave birth to her first cria in October 2013. She's the cutest little pip and we just lov...

This girl gets her tall beauty from her mother. All the animals that she has produced have had the most exquisite soft buttery fleece and Shirl is no different. Even the fiber that came off her neck on her Juvie shearing was absolutely amazing. I can't wait to work with it! Shirl is well grown for her age and should be able to be bred by the time she is 1 1/2 or 2. I have no doubt that she will reproduce herself and be an excellent production animal. 7/19 - Just sorted Shirl's fleece and it is definitely show worthy.

"Spots" is a new comer to the appaloosa alpaca scene. Spots' appaloosa gene comes from NGG Lional-- a known appaloosa carrier that has been well-proven in Canada but is rather rare in the United States. In the past... in the United States... the appy program has been focused on achieving the spots which required certain genetic combinations, but unfortunately... not always best known for outstanding fleece qualities. What is so special about Spots from an appaloosa breeder program perspective is that he carries elite-fleeced heavy hitter lines in his pedigree such as Legacy, El Nino, and XXXtreme (out of Hemingway) ALONG WITH the expressed appy gene! These elite-fleeced alpacas are known fo...

Eden was the first light fawn girl born on our farm, a mere 7 years after we started breeding alpacas. One of my favorite colors, she is absolutely beautiful and feminine. Fleece as soft and buttery as possible and out of 2 champions. She has been shown very lightly and placed at the shows she'd attended. Eden's first cria in the summer of 2014 was a stunning dark brown. She has been bred to our multi time gray champion Alpine's Carderock. The combination of these 2 fine fleeced animals should be amazing!
