Champion offspring!

Almost Paradise Farms Beatriz

Huacaya, Female, Proven, Light Rose Grey
ARI# 842017 | DOB: 9/5/2002
Bea is the foundation of our foundation herd. As soon as I saw her, I knew she was exactly what we were looking for. Her sire is Mr. Roosevelt, who is known for his fine fleece, something he has passed on to Bea.

Tough decision but we are offering Annual’s Chrome Finish for sale. Add this awesome genetic line to your herd!!

Wow! Annual's Chrome Finish is a show stopper! Wonderful dense, crimp, long staple fleece on this powerhouse body! Solid bone! Awesome typey head!

Chrome Finish is throwing very nice cria for us and our customers. Quite pleased with his offspring and thus, he gets the nod to be one of our top herdsires. His three crias for PJA in 2018 are all GREY!! 2019 was a wonderful year for Chrome's offspring......all of the new crias born this year look awesome. Mostly grey and female! We are in love with all of them!
