Bidding Info


Ruby is an amazing girl.
Her first cria, Nimuae, was exquisite, (see photo). Unfortunately this baby died unregistered, shortly after the photo shown was taken due to the degeneration of the phrenic nerve. Cause was unknown.
Ruby's 2nd cria is now my resident herdsire, New Age Constantinople, and I am SO pleased with what he is producing.

Ruby developed a UTI after her 2nd cria, which was treated, but she was unable to get pregnant after that. After years of trying, I finally labelled her a non-breeder, but allowed her the occasional "romp", just to sweeten her disposition.
Well, Surprise, Surprise, Surprise! 341 days after her last roll in the hay with Richter, out popped a beautiful bay black girl (See New Age Ruby's Miracle). She is now back in the breeding program, and is proving herself to be an exceptional mother.
Last month, Ruby delivered her 4th cria, a beautiful boy (Jasper) who is a carbon copy of Ruby.
Although she is now 14 years of age, she handles pregnancy and mothering like a much younger girl, and I would not hesitate to breed her again. If you wish, upon purchase, she can be bred to Black Magic of PVA, for another exceptional baby.

She is a tall, stretchy girl with excellent conformation and a mind of her own. Her fiber has coarsened with age, but she still has amazing luster, and a cool, slick, pleasant handle, indicating uniformity and consistency.

NOTE: Ruby is a very domineering female, so has gone to live with female llamas at a friends ranch. She is still available for sale.
