News flash! After spending last summer here, Kit will be returning to his summer home later this spring. We're once again offering a special on his breeding fee, good only if used before he leaves. Grab it while you can:)

This year saw 2018 daughter Ebonni Carson win CC in walking fleece (TB) at the Gold Country Gathering under Wini Labrecque! We're so in love with all his cria, but this one is truly special:)

It's early 2019 and his batch of fall cria are growing like weeds! There are tw...

Bidding Info

Description

Jubilee has beautiful dark rose grey fleece. At six years, her 24 micron fleece is very uniform and quite fine for a grey. Her 2012 EPDs confirm what we already know. She produces cria with very dense, fine, crimpy, uniform fleece! 2012 EPDs: AFD -0.993, SD -0.435, %>30-5.387.

Jubilee is an excellent mother who gives birth easily and has plenty of milk for her cria. In fact she has been known to nurse more than one cria at the same time after the second cria's mother died.

Jubilee came to us bred to Ruidoso. After waiting weeks past the due date, her cria was born during National Alpaca Farm Days to an audience of farm visitors. It was an amazing experience so we named the girl Jewel in honor of the event!

A few months after Jewel was born (and Jubilee was rebred), we believed Jubilee was pregnant again. While we were walking our white herdsire (Ike) through the pasture to breed another girl, Jubilee walked up and cushed right in front of him. We took it as a sign and went ahead and let her breed to Ike. That unplanned breeding gave us a gorgeous medium fawn girl, Sabina. We can't wait to see how she does in the spring shows. Both Jewel and Sabina have bright, dense, crimpy fleece to go with their perfect conformation.

In 2012, we bred Jubilee to our light silver grey herdsire, Amego. On February 5th, they gave us a beautiful medium rose gray girl. Or so we thought... until shearing day. As the fleece came off, we were delighted to find an even prettier silver gray underneath! We are so excited to have produced a gray girl and have high hopes for her future.

For her 2014 cria, we again bred Jubilee to Amego in the hope of another grey cria. And boy did they come through! We got a grgeous lighter silver grey boy. Like the first fleece from his full sister Rose, his tips are rose grey but underneath it's a pretty silver grey. Check out the sturdy build and conformation! We can't wait to see how he grows up.

Since Jubilee has given us two grey and one black out of four breedings on our ranch, we bred her to our new herdsire Snowmass Velvet Legend... Twice! The first breeding gave us Mocha Mist, a gorgeous dark silver gray girl (see below) and the second gave us another striking dark silver gray, this time a boy!

Jubilee is currently bred to Arapaho Sentinel's Denali, another striking rose gray boy for a spring 2018 cria. Denali has amazing retained fineness and uniformity. We can't wait to see what they produce! Jubilee sells with our 30 day live cria guarantee and a free breeding to any unrestricted Menagerie Hill Ranch owned Herdsire.
