Description

MOHICAN'S CHRISTA is owned by Robin Pierson of Heather-Rayne Alpacas, and she's offered here for sale exclusively as part of The Secret Meadow program of Close-Knit Alpacas. She can be purchased individually, OR as part of a dynamic package...You decide!

Christa is a proven female early in her breeding career. It's expected that she will follow in her dam's footsteps as she continues to "carry and deliver cria easily" and, Robin adds, "she is a super mom." Christa's dam is also on this sales list, so be sure to check out her listing for more details as so many traits and characteristics with alpacas are highly heritable.

Christa's sire is a grandson of the great "MISTER ANTONIO" who is renowned son of the famous HEMINGWAY G171. His dam's sire is also PERUVIAN HEMINGWAY G171 and this line-breeding has led to superb fiber and form.

Christa's dam is a great granddaughter of 6PERUVIAN 007 5008 IMPR98 (an imported light fawn). This outstanding stud born in 1997 has produced no fewer than 30 quality ARI registered offspring, and most, like Christa, are female (24!).

No matter which side of Christa's family tree you peruse, you will notice LOTS OF COLOR in the offspring of the herd sires, in particular...especially on her dam's side; so, if you're looking to breed for super fiber in white OR color, Christa's your girl!

When I asked Robin what stands out most about this dam, she replied, "Christa has a nice alpaca presence & nice conformation. She stands tall & seems to stick out in the herd." How does she describe this female in a single word? ATTRACTIVE - I have to agree!

Robin also reveals that Christa "has a nice dense fiber, staple length and crimp, as well." Request a sample!

Christa "is a middle of the range girl," says Robin, "and likes to know what's going on, but she's not overly friendly. She's not nasty with those in her group but puts them in their place."

Finally, Christa "halters & walks on lead easily & we have no problems with herd health."
