DO YOU WANT TO GO TO THE SHOWS, IMPRESS THE JUDGES AND TAKE HOME RIBBONS? If so Willow is the girl for you. She has produced 2 females who have won 4 CHAMPIONSHIP ribbons and numerous blue ribbons. The best predictor of future success is proven success!

SHIP Classified 2018 with amazing results. We will be happy to share the results of the classification by Cheryl Gehly (AOA judge). This also showed that she has produced offspring with even better fiber characteristics than herself, exactly what you want in a breeding female

Willow is a beautiful true black proven female grandaughter of PVA Mahogony Prince and Fruzane Noir. She has a beautiful Suri phenotype and such a great Suri head.

She is a wonderful producer with excellent mothering skill and easy births.Her cria have all been large and healthy. She is tall and stretchy with all the conformational attributes you look for in a Suri. Her fleece has that excellent smoothness that is important for Suris and she has produced offspring that are also a true Suri build with beautiful fleece. Her first cria won a very competitive fawn color championship and has inherited important breeding and mothering traits from her mother (her cria is a blue ribbon winner too). Her daughter Isis won the IAO processing length CHAMPIONSHIP over a white PVA multiple champion and FUTURITY and NATIONALS Bred and Owned winning alpaca. The judges commented that it is unusual for a black alpaca to place over a white, but she had such a soft handle to her fleece that they placed her as the champion. Soft handle, excellent luster and large correct conformation is what Willow passes to her offspring.

Bred to Sierra Bonita"s Maccoyo Maximum for a 2019 cria....we are excited to see what these two can produce together.His sire is MacGyver so he can pass excellent dark genetics. which is why we bred him to Willow who is unrelated to the MacGyver line. He was such a star in the show ring with judges that we thought this combo can produce amazing results!
