My Peruvian Equador

Huacaya, Male, Proven, Light Fawn, Full Peruvian
ARI# 817854 | DOB: 2/21/2000
UPDATE: At twenty years of age, we have retired Equador from breeding, as he is most likely infertile now. His last breedings did not take, and a physical exam also supports this conclusion. He is still very robust and healthy and will now live out his senior years in comfort at Landmark Farm!

For those who need the scientific stats provided by skin biopsy to back up the claim of lingering fineness, here they are!

In June 2012, we had then 12-year-old My Peruvian Equador evaluated by Dr...

Rainier's Nala Cloud

Huacaya, Female, Proven, Medium Silver Grey, Full Chilean
ARI# 31094825 | DOB: 7/18/2009
Nala is one of two girls on our farm sired by the spectacular 2005 AOBA Grey Color Champion, Emerald Farm's Rincon Cloud, son of Crescent Moon's Rayo De Sol, who is himself the son of the gorgeous grey, Patagonia's Danko. Nala's dam, Grand River Cheila, has been a rock solid foundation dam for Rainier Alpacas, consistently producing show-ring and herdsire quality crias.

Nala is very easy to handle for herd health, but loves to strut her stuff in the pastures! This girl is unmistakably a Rinc...

Description


Fellaman is a lovely fiber gelding and a full sibling to Landmark Farm's Autumn Jewel, who sold in April 2016.

Fellaman was 19 pounds at birth and gained 8 pounds in his first 10 days! He had a high IgG of greater than 2581 and was drinking water at 9 days of age! No, he was not playing in it. He was sucking it down and swallowing! He was eating supplement at one month. Very precocious little boy!

Fellaman is a very compact guy with a heavy dense fleece with good coverage. When he was first sheared at 7 weeks of age, his blanket and neck fiber weighed over a pound! He has a cute, heavily-fibered face with adorable ear tufts! He has been pastured as a companion to stud males, as well as kept with other geldings. He thinks is isn't missing anything and puts on quite a show prancing around and strutting his stuff! He can certainly hold his own against aggressive males, yet is very easy to handle for herd health.

Fellaman's coloring totally surprised us! We registered him as a light brown since his fleece at the skin was the exact same color as it was at the tips when he was born. But the fleece that grew in between birth and his first shearing at 7 weeks came in as a much darker band. He was dark brown! He is the first dark brown or bay black that we have had born that was light brown at the tips but not dark at the skin from birth. His color is continuing to change. His grandmother was born brown and greyed out, and his dam is grey. As he has matured, he has added more white hair to the mix so that he is now a dark modern rose grey! It is always fun watching what you will end up with when you have bay blacks and browns born out of greys!

Fellaman is one of six Equador offspring born on our farm.
