Bidding Info

Description

This female has got it all! She has EXTREME density and fineness that everyone wants to see in their foundation herd. Even her topknot has an outstanding high frequency crimp. Martha has a brilliance to her fleece that is hard to beat! Look at her histogram!
Martha is sired by the Portland Kidd, a multi champion producing male. Her half brother, SCF Chewbacca, received the Extreme Progeny Dark Huacaya Herdsire of the year 2008. Out a Baby Bop, an excellent producer of mixed heritage. Baby Bop has greys and blacks in her background, we wonder what Martha would produce bred to a darker solid colored male?

As with all our alpacas she is BVDV PCR negative. Due to her extreme density, we would prefer she be sold to a farm with cooler summers. She would have excellent leg coverage if she didn't stand in the water buckets during the dog days of summer to cool off.

She has done well at fleece and fiber related shows as well as in halter with some tough competition. She received the 2008 AFCNA Continental Fleece show, fawn Color Champion award. She has placed every time she has shown.
If you are looking for a high end fawn, this is your girl.

Martha is a doting mother and will nurse other crias as well. That is such a wonderful trait in a female!

Her yearling cria,Arioso sold and then received a 1st Place and High Score Award!

Price includes 2 months free board and more!

Martha delivered a white male cria sired by HTAF Mighty Mac. This cria is a dynamo and is exhibiting soft rolling skin!! Out of 2 color champions!

She will be left open as breeding for the spring is too hot for her here in Eastern NC.

These are her correct show records. A switch at delivery to our farm had us showing her under the name of RA Sophie. It wasn't until one of the girls had a cria that we realized the mistake.
RA Martha has placed every time she has been shown.
