The day Applause was born, we were wowed! It was the first time we didn't say, "If he only had a little more this" or "a little more that." Applause was born a knock-out and he has not disappointed us. He has an incredible soft handle and loads of crimpy-to-the-end, dense fleece.

Out of our foundation dam Heatherbrook's Masquerada and sired by Amanda Vanderbosh's legendary grey herdsire Bisturi (who is no longer in the country), Applause has th...

She did it again... Another home run sired by Applause! We have high hope for this guy! We repeated the breeding... again! Her crias are amazing!

Josie's 2014 female cria Monique is a stunning! She is strong, straight and perfect in conformation, coverage and fleece handle. We could not be more pleased ! Monique will be in our 2015 show string. We repeated the breeding for a fall 2015 cria.

76 mm follicle density 9.3:1 SP Ratio The densest gray ever tested by Alpaca Consulting as of 2017!!

This boy is our "Game Changer" in our breeding program. If you were color blind his fleece could compete with even the nicest white. Very uniform in color with a hand to die for. And style? did you say style!!!

His staple has been an issue in management as his fleece is so long by show season that it is drapey. This male is here for the long haul in our breeding program and possibly touts...

Amazing genetics!

Bidding Info


Cute as a button and the spitting image of her gray sire, we liked Monique so much she is first of 3 repeat breeds and a hard one to consider parting with.

Only shown twice she stood at the top of the light fawn class both times until the judge noticed her inconsistency in color and bumped her to 2nd. that color is GRAY! Monique resembles our own
AOA fleece champion rose GRAY, Pink Champaine, so much that we have a hard time telling them apart.

We believe Monique carries the gene on her sire's side to produce multi or pattern as evidence of her first cria who is a tri colored pattern. Her sire, 4-Sight's Applause has produced many patterns of unique color variations.

She is an elegant girl with rose coloring in her top not, on her neck and dark points. She has an incredible staple length very bright crimpy bundles of fleece. She is excellent in conformation with solid bone and bite. Her pedigree is stacked on both sides with champion bloodlines!

Monique's first cria MTAR Belle is a multi blue ribbon winning multi exhibiting 3 colors in her blanket. She has an incredible staple and a super bright fleece. We are so impressed with her that we repeated the breeding to Sonic Shift and she is due spring 2020.

From Belle's Shearer:
Absolutely stunning! One of the heaviest fleeces I have ever shorn. One of those times the fiber just keeps going and going.
