We are very happy to have acquired BRADFORD from Grazing Hills Alpacas!

Bradford is the half brother of our dearly departed Dirk. Both are sons of Accoyo-America DIOMEDES who is now deceased. Diomedes has imprinted his handsome head and his amazing fleece characteristics to these sons of his and for that reason we jumped at the chance to have another Diomedes boy on the farm!

Bradford x Vanora = Ceilidh (Kaylee) our first Bradford baby born on the farm June 2020. She's a beaut!

MOM of our 2 best boys!

Bidding Info


We have bred Kenzie to Bradford and are waiting to see if it takes! She has produced two of our best boys from Diomedes' breedings. Diomedes is deceased and our two Diomedes boys are also in alpaca heaven. Bradford is a Diomedes son with a 17 micron fleece at 10 years, so we are hoping for a beautiful cria, and with color.

2019 EPD RESULTS (at 14 years):
Ranked 54% for AFD, value —.154 meaning her cria should have a finer fleece than breed average
TOP 20% SDAFD, value —.258, her cria should have a more uniform fleece than breed average
Ranked 42% for Spin Fineness, value —.377, her cria should have a lower SF than breed average
Top 17% for %F>30, value —4.305 , her cria should have less micron >30 than breed average
Top 11% for Mean Curvature, value 2.664, her cria should have more crimp than breed average
Ranked 28.5% for %Medullation, value —1.268, her cria should have less medullated fiber than breed average
Ranked 94.3% for Mean Staple Length, value -3.359, her cria likely to have a shorter staple length
Ranked 26.6% for Fleece Weight, value +.292, her cria should have a FW heavier than breed average
Birth Weight, value -.139

Kenzie's look and fiber quality are what we like: shorter muzzle, triangular head, great histogram and fiber qualities, nice conformation. And she has a VERY calm temperament and is easy to work with, even pregnant. She'll pick up her feet and let you look in her mouth, easily. She is a beautiful animal and about as sweet an alpaca as you'll ever find. Her kids learn that nice behavior from her and they are as well behaved as mama is.

First cria, Dirk, was an easy delivery; second cria McTavish delivered in 8 minutes; same with baby #3, Rosie! She's a very good mama and has plenty of milk. We love this girl because she's a beauty herself and has produced some of our best cria.

Her initial histogram as a cria was AFD 14.5 with a curve factor of 35.5. Her histogram has been holding steady with fineness and consistency even at 13 years, a GREAT quality she has passed on to her two stellar sons.

Kenzie is out of our best dam, Kupcake, and my assessment is that the daughter has surpassed the mother. With Kenzie's sire, Onyx de Mico (bay black) and his Michaelangelo/Guellermo genetics, she is one of our top-of-the-line females.


2006 PNAA Fiber Odyssey Spin Off:
2nd place at 97/100 points, one point behind 1st place, with 14 white entries
2007 NW Alpaca Showcase:
Halter, 2nd place out of 5 entries. Judge Peter Kennedy commented Kenzie was true to type, conformationally correct, a little less fine than 1st place which went to a female nearly a year younger than Kenzie, and that she should make wonderful babies (and she definitely has with Dirk and McTavish!)
2008 NW Alpaca Showcase Spin-Off:
1st place, 4 entries, 94/100 points
Spinner said, "A joy to work with."
