Belle Starr of BIR

SuriFemale (bred)Light Fawn
AOA# DOB: 7/2/20173 yrs
With the passing of SBS Crown Prince, buying this very nice female would enable you to add those genetics into your herd. This is a very gentle lady. Even pregnant, she has a great temperament. She has it all; confirmation, lock, luster, density and fineness. She has great capacity and has proven to be an excellent Mother.

White Knight's Shining Armor

SuriMaleWhite, Dark Fawn
ARI# AOA# 31167697   DOB: 9/21/200911 yrs
This is a very special guy for us - the last male out of our beloved 4Peruvian White Knight - and he did not disappoint. At three years of age, he showed density of 65.76 follicles per sq mm, an S/P average of 11.8, and a micron spread of only 4.2! At 3 years of age, his AFD was 22.5, 21.2, and 23.5 - shoulder, side, and hip - and his CV was 19 for all three tests. His 2015 EPD rankings puts him in the top 3% for AFD and SD. And his first cria hit the ground in Fall of 2015! A solid medium fawn boy with silky fleece and wonderful wave-to-twist locks. Shining Armor will begin a more serious breeding career for us in 2016 but we invite others to try him out sooner! Because Shining...

CHAPS (Pines Edge Chaparral)

SuriMaleDark Brown
ARI# AOA# 32794588   DOB: 9/5/20146 yrs
PINES EDGE CHAPARRAL, (Chaps), was named the AOA National Champion brown male Suri 2016. Senior Judge, Jude Anderson went on at length about his correct conformation, complete coverage and outstanding fleece that exhibited density, fineness, bright luster and definition of lock. Look at the picture of his fleece and then his histogram and you can see what Chaps is all about. Chap's fleece was named Champion brown fleece at the prestigious Suri Network All Suri Fleece Show. We can't wait to pair Chap's extreme fleece characteristics with our girls. Chaps has tight, well formed locks with outstanding luster and density on a well balanced frame. This boy's true black dam, Blacklock, is a ...

SuriFemale (bred)True Black
AOA# DOB: 7/21/20182 yrs
This is a nice female that shows potential of creating grey offspring. She has a handful of small spots of brown. Her mother had similar coloring and when bred to a classic grey, she had a classic grey cria! Tanima is currently bred to the same herdsire, our General Sterling Price, hoping for another classic grey offspring. Histogram done by Ian Watt in 2020 AFD 25.3, SD 4.96 and CF 86.39...

The Sterling standard of Silver Grey herdsires, "Sterling" epitomizes everything we strive for in alpacas. His exceptional confirmation, density, and luster have brought him numerous championships and awards, all while shorn.

This female is not going to the shows as she does have blue eyes. This just means we will not breed her to white or classic gray. She is not deaf. She is growing well and bred well. Awesome Mom! Classic grey cria from breeding to Midknight Rider so we repeated the breeding!
