HRAZ Lock & Load

Huacaya, Herdsire (Male), Proven, White, 1/2 Peruvian, 1/2 Bolivian
ARI# 1348897 | DOB: 10/25/2005
Half Peruvian, half Bolivian, part Accoyo, Lock & Load is quite the macho man. Combining Accoyo Caligula and Get of Sire Champion Peruvian Presidio on the top of the lineage chart and Bolivian Chieftain B956 on the bottom, he's exactly what you'd expect from such an illustious pedigree. Lock & Load is the son of Austine F0379 AOA, the high-selling huacaya female at the 2003 Futurity auction. Austine's first cria, HRAZ Dulce de Leche, won every color championship for which she was eligible and s...

Alpha Carina

ARI# 1374858 | DOB: 8/19/2001
Alpha Carina is a wonderful and caring mom. She always has plenty of milk for her cria. Carina prefers to be left alone with her new crias for at least 3 days before being introduced back to the herd. Carina recently had her 5th offspring in April 2012. She passes on her sweet temperment to her offsprings who just love to give kisses. Carina is our PR alpaca when not pregnant.

Bidding Info


DMAR Mercedes is conformationally correct and will make a great foundation female to anyone's herd. She is a wonderful mother with plenty of milk. One of her best qualities is how easy it is to breed her. She always drops like a rock so when she is pregnant it also is easy to tell by her refusal to kush. To date Mercedes has produced three females and just last October produced her first male we named Tango.

Tango is also conformationally correct. His father is Our Justice who is part of the Timeteo lineage. The combination of the two parents have produced a strong young male with absolutely beautiful fleece. Tango has full coverage over his entire body. He has a beautiful typey head with strong, straight legs. His fleece is dense, incredibly soft, and full of tight crimp. Tango is white in color.

Mercedes lineage includes PPeruvian Caligula, Peruvian Hemingway, and PPeruvian Victor. The combination of all these great genetics guarantees beautiful fleece on this young female. Earlier stats showed that she improved on uniformity while maintaining a very fine fleece that holds even more crimp per inch.

Mercedes sells with a full reproductive warranty.

Mercedes sells with her male cria at side and a free breeding to any DMAR herdsire. Mercedes is a 3-in-1 package deal.

Mercedes is an easy keeper. She has not had any health issues and we look forward to her continuing to be a wonderful producer.
