ARI# 30610903 | DOB: 7/12/2006
Cee Jae has a consistently soft and shiny fleece with long staple length that handspinners love. Her cria fleece was 7 inches long at 11 months old! Moreover, she continues to be very fine and her fleece is next-to-skin soft after processing. Her feminine elegance is carried easily on a strong frame with good conformation. She moves freely, even when carrying her pregnancy. She breeds easily and patiently, and is gentle to handle.

Cee Jae is an excellent mother -- attentive and producing a...

Bidding Info


Vanilla comes from a line of easy-care, easy-breeding, and good-mothering dams. Her grand-dam and dam has have had 80% girls! Will Vanilla produce mostly girls? Could be, as she has had 2 girls to 1 boy! But that is not the only reason to want Vanilla in your herd…

Vanilla’s fiber is very fine and shiny bright, with a good staple with a high frequency crimp. Her annual fiber clip automatically is sorted for next-to-skin products. Her fiber will be wonderful as a roving, mill-spun into yarn, or handspun, and it will easily dye just about any color.

Vanilla is a quintessential production girl. She breeds easily, carries well, and births without assistance. She attentive to her crias and produces plenty of milk. Moreover, she has produced very nice crias for us, two girls and one boy.

Her first cria, born on the Fourth of July, was sired by the sire of champions, El Nino's Golden Legend. Provenance matured quickly, and after a great showing as a juvenile and yearling she has produced fantastic crias for us. Vanilla's 2013 girl sired by Tuscan Gold is brilliant, and was aptly named Golden Reflection (Goldie). Goldie's fiber is just as soft and delicious to touch as her dam's fleece, and Goldie is producing fantastic crias for us as well. In 2014, Vanilla produced a little macho from her breeding to FIA Excello's Rocky Bay. This fawn boy is named Archer for his light marking on his forehead; his fiber is very shiny and soft! For 2015, Vanilla presened to us another girl, this one in a brown coloration. She is a sweetheart and pretty little thing!

Overall, Vanilla has great fiber & conformation, easy health/care & breeding, and a sweet personality just like her dam and grand-dam. In the end, this is what we are all hoping for -- healthy alpacas that breed easily, produce improved crias, and provide a highly quality fiber!
