We purchased Topaz as a maiden, who came with a breeding to Avatar. She is still one of our very favorite girls and an excellent production dam. Her first cria (2009) was a very light rose grey female we named Antonia, who is still a highly valued production dam in our herd. The next year (2010), her cria was a lovely true black male. His fiber was like black velvet with fantastic brightness. Unfortunately, Topaz aborted twins in 2011 and we held her open until 2012. We were anticipating ...

Description

We only recently added Antonia to our sales list as we seriously approach retirement. One of the first cria born at La Mancha, Antonia is a lovely light, lavender shade of rose grey. She has placed in every halter class she entered and is always a star in spin-offs. In 2011, one spin-off judge gave her full points for crimp and architecture and commented on the ease of carding her fiber and the softness of the yarn produced. She was awarded a Blue Ribbon in the 2013 CABA Classic spin-off! Some of the comments made by the spin-off judge included: nice handle; easy to spin; really liked this yarn, especially color; nice luster. The total score was 90 out of 100 possible points. The judges last comment was "This fleece made a nice lofty yarn--would also dye beautifully." The past few years, her fleece has been sold to hand spinners at marketing events.

We are so very proud of Antonia. She is a wonderful girl and a great mom! Her first born was a dark male, registered as Medium Brown but his grey genetics are very evident. Her second cria was a Modern Dark Silver Grey male. His cria fleece took a blue ribbon in the Alpaca Fleece Show at the 2015 National Western Stock Show. Antonia next added an outstanding male, sired by Autumn Sun's Apache Longbow, a Snowmass Enlightenment son. This boy is sold but sure to be a winner! He sheared True Black but now those grey genetics are sneaking in. The new owners are excited about his potential.

This newest little girl has beautiful fleece with a wonderful hand. She seems perfectly balanced in every way! She appears light brown at this time but we all know we should not jump to conclusions, especially with her strong grey genetics! She has black points and maybe a touch of grey on her ears.
