Blackjack needs a new farm! We are a small farm and already have his genetics in our male and female breeding herd. He will soon be in a pen by himself if a pending sale goes through. He is still very soft and produces a 4-5 lb blanket. Beautiful phenotype, nice crimp and density. Very robust male. Needs to be placed with other adult males. All offers considered including trades or breeding.

Look at the fleece characteristics and phenotype he's passed on to his first 2 offspring. Bot...

Bidding Info


Just received Gambler's yearling fleece micron results! 30 months and still 21.6 micron! (April 2015) and 95% comfort factor. PRICE INCLUDES his 3 yr old buddy Prince Samuel who was 24 micron in 2015 and still has a soft hand with loads of fiber. They are both integrated with our younger males but grew up together. Both sheared a 3.5 lb blanket plus over 1 lb of neck fiber.

Gambler's fleece show results from the American Fiber Rally show in 2013: Gambler placed 1st out of 3 in the juvenile brown class! Gambler placed 1st at Small Breeders Challenge and then sheared over 2 lbs of blanket and almost 1 lb of neck fiber at 7 months old. As you can see in the picture - nice long staple too! Micron testing results are at 22.4 with a 94% comfort factor and 34% deg/mm mean curvature (indicating presence of crimp).

As his fleece grew in last summer, there was a lot of gray fiber in the neck and some in the blanket. The tips of his ears are silver gray - could he be turning rose gray? 8/18/13 - checked his blanket fiber and WOW the gray. I do believe he has turned modern rose gray! At least indefinite vs MB.

Gambler's pedigree reads like a who's who among the best alpacas! Dom Timbo and Danko (Fabulous grays that set the bar for elite grays), with Peruvian Drambuie, Augusto, and Hemingway to set in dense, crimpy fiber with lasting fineness. And these genetics shine through when you get a look and put your hands on this young herdsire!

The crimp on this boy is amazing and coverage from his nose to his toes! Nice straight legs, balanced confirmation, heavy bone, good bite, and density. His dam has a lot of gray fiber in her fawn fleece and sire is a black with light silver gray spots (from his LSG sire), so his color may change more. The fiber on the tips of his ears is definitely silver gray and neck fiber looks gray on the inside too!

A very calm easy going alpaca like his dam, who is one of the largest but also easiest going of my female herd.
