Oh YES he can produce solid and multi cria!

We first saw Tach at the 2009 Breeder's Choice Auction and his fleece was phenomenal! We watched as he went on to do very nice things for his new owners so when the chance to own half interest in him became available we were quick to take advantage.

He is a multi but if you are paying attention multis are hot, hot, hot right now! If you are into spots and multis Tachometer can definitely deliver. He can however, produce some stellar solid fl...

OH MY IS THIS ONE CUTE ALPACA! Tia always draws the attention of folks at shows and visitors to the farm. She is that rare harlequin alpaca that is born with fawn fleece only to reveal lovely grey at the first shearing. She has a beautifully spotted face. Tia is full of spunk and solid as a rock. Her fleece has crimp from skin to tip. Take a look at her ARI and you will see about every color on the color card. You will also see some of the top names in the industry listed such as Snowmas...

This guy!! Oh My! Just what we ordered from our pairing of Tia and Tachometer. We knew Tach could produce solid and multi but what could he do with a harlequin?

This guy is rock solid. He is bigger than most of the cria that are older than him. Hercules seemed the most appropriate name for him.
His conformation is spot on but his fleece...… it does not disappoint! He's very dense, fine and displays excellent crimp. He did not get his cria tips shorn so by show season it may be pulling the crimp out but this is a show worthy fleece.

Color? Well he's fawn but I keep checking at the skin I am seeing gray in the neck and moving down!!! Yeah! Can't wait to get this shorn and see if we have a harlequin gray under there. His coloring is very much like his mother's was at a young age.

Update: Finally got that cria fleece off him. While I wouldn't call him gray at this time he is definitely MUCH darker and his neck is gray. I really think he will continue to darker and turn gray.

We are just over the moon in love with this guy!

Yeah! His first show weekend with dual shows -
1st in Illinois Alpaca & Fiber Fest ring under Sharon Loner
1st and Best of Bred & Owned in The Rail Splitter ring under Peter Kennedy who definitely appreciates an appy.
His blue streak continued at Buckeye where he took a blue in bred and owned.

Love this guy!!!

Hercules had a great first show season! He certainly did not disappoint us. He always draws attention from folks because of his striking color and inquisitive nature.

Have I said how much we LOVE this guy? :)
