News flash! After spending last summer here, Kit will be returning to his summer home later this spring. We're once again offering a special on his breeding fee, good only if used before he leaves. Grab it while you can:)

This year saw 2018 daughter Ebonni Carson win CC in walking fleece (TB) at the Gold Country Gathering under Wini Labrecque! We're so in love with all his cria, but this one is truly special:)

It's early 2019 and his batch of fall cria are growing like weeds! There are tw...

What a great way to start or enhance your herd. This girls grand daddies are Snowbelt Hot Scot (MB)(BB) and Conan the Great (TB). Throw in her true black mother and dark rose gray dad and the possibilities are great for this foundation female.

Elektra's first cria by our MSG herdsire LV Silver Samovar by Vantaggio is so feisty, we named him Black Thunder for the way he charged around the pasture and bothered the other moms! He has his sire's trademark fine, bright and uniform fleece, with g...

Description

This is the boy born while we were at the 2018 Gold Country Gathering. We all thought he was going to be "lavender", but if you look close the new fleece is actually a gorgeous light silver grey! And it's already showing some really nice organization and bundling... we can't wait to see how it grows out:)

I've been calling this boy "stud muffin" for a couple of reasons. First he's a nice bulky boy with a wide stance and early genital development. Then there is his behavior... from an early age he's clearly the alpha male investigating everything that goes on and has high interest in the open girls. Unlike most young males who climb on the cushed girls anywhere (back, neck, head, tail), this boy knows where he needs to be... the back end. And he's persistent... attempting to mount the standing girls. And notably, he leaves the bred girls alone!

Unfortunately, we didn't get pre/post shearing pix but his bright light silver fleece just glows in the sun:)

Fast forward to the Gold Country Gathering Alpaca Show and bothe halter and fleece judges were wowed by his fleece! At just a year of age, his secondary follicles are still coming in, but his extreme fineness and uniformity took him to first place in halter and had Walking Judge Wini Lebrecque happily fondling it! Judge Amanda VandenBosch commented on his very fine and uniform fleece and beautiful wide, square, upright, balanced frame.
