Bidding Info


Jewel was born to an audience during National Alpaca Farm Days. The experience of explaining the process as it happened to visitors was amazing! Her dam, Jubilee is an easy birther, and the view as the rest of the girls circled around to visit created a spectacular show for our guests. In spite of the 2 legged attention, Jewel was up and nursing in less than 30 minutes to the applause of the spectators!

We were so pleased with the quality that Jewel pesented that we showed her at the California Classic (twice) and the Dixon Caper. The judges were very taken with (and commented on) her outstanding conformation and the uniformity of her fiber. And Jewel has lovely, soft, dense, crimpy fleece that hand spinners love!

Jewel's first cria (courtesy of CMN Amego) is on the ground and he is a pistol! With beautiful medium brown fleece with black points and very nice conformation, we can't wait to see how he grows up!

We had planned to breed Jewel back to Amego. But then we noticed how nicely our junior herdsire Horse was growing up. He has very fine, uniform and crimpy fleece with amazing staple length... An exellent match for Jewel's fleece and conformation! So we'll be breeding Jewel to Horse this spring. We have high hopes for another outstanding cria next year! Jewel sells with our 30 day Live Cria Guarantee and a free breed back to any Menagerie Hill Ranch owned Herdsire. That's mom, 2015 Cria and breed back - a three in one package!
