Her 2020 histogram is in! See in sidebar! Blowing us away with her fineness at her age. We have bred her to our Duncan who has a heavy fleece weight and long staple to improve her where she lacks.

2019 histogram and EPD results are beautiful (again)!
TOP 14% in AFD, value —1.147: her cria will likely have a finer fleece
TOP 16% in SDAFD, value —0.295: her cria will likely have a more uniform fiber diameter
TOP 14% in SF, value —1.179: her cria will likely have a lower spin fineness

Description

Her 2020 histogram results are wonderful! Now awaiting EPD stats.

Eilonwy is named after Princess Eilonwy in the Chronicles of Prydain book series by Lloyd Alexander. Her name is pronounced eye-LAWN-wee.

Eilonwy is definitely ready for breeding and NOW would be an excellent time to get her bred. We would recommend Spanish Peaks Banderas at Alpaca Harmony (in the TOP 1% EPD for staple length) to put some length in her very fine (but short) fleece. She has grey in her background and Banderas is dark rose grey. I wonder what that might produce? If breeding to Banderas please add $500.

She is the product of a line breeding between Finneana and Logan, both having the beautiful Accoyo America Diomedes as their sire. Diomedes was bought by a farm in Canada and is now deceased--a beautiful sire. Diomedes ranked in the TOP 1% in the 2013 EPD stats for all these: AFD, SDAFD, SF %F>30, MC, SDMC. Phenomenal! That means this gal has a double dose of Hemingway, Accoyo Sicuani, Hemingway-Accoyo Nautilus and Caligula! Quite the heavy genetic lineup!

Her EPD results for 2019:
TOP 21% in AFD, value — 0.877: her cria will likely have a finer fleece
TOP 15.5% in SDAFD, value —0.297: her cria will likely have a more uniform fiber diameter
TOP 22% in SF, value —0.892: her cria will likely have a lower spin fineness
33% for %F>30, value —2.742, her cria will likely have a lower % of fibers greater than 30 micron
TOP 5.6% in MC, value 4.09: her cria will likely have a higher frequency crimp than average
SDMC, value 2.328, assesses the uniformity of curvature
37% for %M, value —.841, her cria will likely have a less % fiber medullation
96% for MSL, value —3.829, her cria will likely have a shorter staple length
46% for FW, value 0.126, her cria will likely have a bit heavier fleece weight
BW, value 0.444, her cria will likely be a bit heavier for birth weight

Eilonwy has a white star on her head. Her medium fawn blanket is solid and lightens under her belly and down her legs to light fawn with white sprinkles on her legs.

Both her dam and sire are big animals and as you can see she has a fairly large frame as well. She's ready for breeding. She has a bit jumpy personality, but we are working on it! Use one of our herdsires and you will get half off for her breeding!

We are willing to let her be used in our rent-a-womb program for $60/month. We keep her here on the farm and the cria is yours! Choose one of our herdsires: Bradford, Duncan, or Wallace and the breeding comes with the rent-a-womb package!
