I just couldn’t help myself, I mean look at this cutie and the bloodline and that colour!!! Beamer is once again from my good friends Kevin and Leanne at Sunnyhill Alpacas boy do I wish they didn’t live so far away so we could exchange more breedings and drinks lol!!! They have an incredible program and I am lucky to have a small part of it. Back to Beamer he has Conopa (one of my all time favourite bloodlines to play with) on the dams side and his sire is a handsome grey male called Diablo. Bea read more...

Miss Broadway Du DNA

Also added to the foundation herd this winter was Miss Broadway. Her sire is Averegan’s Magnus. Magus is a 2x Supreme champion out of Our Gold Legend daughter Memphis and Xanadu P. Resolute. Magnus was gorgeous, super fine, good density and shine for days. We sold him before we got a chance to use him. I’m thrilled DNA has had some outstanding offspring from him and when the chance came to buy a daughter I couldn’t pass it up.
Broadways dam is a Chananza daughter, so we expect she should j read more...

Arriba Amora

Amora, what can I say, I spotted this adorable face when I was Arriba when she was just a month old. She instantly caught my eye in the group and her fleece was so lovely and shiny. I was still thinking about her the next day and knew I had to negotiate with Lori to have her.
She is one of the first crias from Zotz Chico De Charlevoix and Lori’s gorgeous Cortez daughter Amelia. I have been a fan of Cortez for many years, His crias are all extremely good looking and have the ability to thro read more...

Say Hello to Arriba Winona

As I mentioned in my previous post this past fall we are thrilled to say that our favourite male Averegan’s Argo has been chosen as the newest herdsire at Arriba Linea Alpacas. She has an outstanding grey and black program and he will be a great addition to her lineup. Not to mention he will get a lot more work at Lori’s place. He has spent a couple summers with Lori breeding and according to her, he walks in find the highest spot to stand on just like he owns the place. He is close by for us t read more...

2020 New additions to the herd

Fall 2020

Fall 2020

2020 was a year of growth and a year of change at Averegan. We saw a market for new farms that were looking for proven genetics and bred girls that’s were easy keepers and good moms. So we were able to help set up these farms with some of our older but favourite girls. This left a substantial gap on our own foundation herd. The next few post are going to showcase the newest additions to our farm.
For those of you in the know we added Xanadu P. Resolute as our main herdsire in 2010. Although read more...

New Year, new goals

As we reflect back on 2020 we can appreciate the highs and the lows of the last year. It’s not to say that there were definitely some challenges, but we learned to be more fluid or roll with the changes.
2020 was a year of change in more ways than 1. We have had to reevaluate our business/breeding plan, to try to remain current.
We have opened an on farm store stocked with all our favourite Alpaca items, and trying to stay true to our goal of using as much of our own fiber to make ou read more...
