Beau's IRA of Bknrd

Advanced Fleece !

Beau's IRA of Bknrd

SuriFemaleBeige
AOA# DOB: 10/15/20127 yrs
Ira, what can I say except I cant wait to get my first cria! There is more fiber on this girl than even her pictures show. When we brought Ira's fleece to be evaluated by Winnie Labrecque at a fiber sorting and training class, Winnie stopped the presses and made everyone in the class, even the huacaya breeders, come over look at her advanced lock structure. Evidentially this stacked fleece effect causes the fleece to accordion out away from the body like pages in a book. This is caused by there being so much organized fleece in one area that the weight of each successive layer created these layers all coming out of the same area. Winnie indicated she had only seen this twice before. ...

ARI# AOA# 31366786   DOB: 6/20/200812 yrs
I'll I can say is STELLAR!!!! This guy is a Full Accoyo super stud out of the legendary Rockstar who's producing cria with an elite fleece that is taking the alpaca community by storm. This guy is throwing color as well!!!!! His babies are extremely dense with a very high caliber of luster. He is stamping those beautiful blocky heads as well. Look for his cria in the showring in 2015! It's going to impress!!!!!!!...

AOA# DOB: 7/4/200812 yrs
Gosh I have nothing but great things to say about Luna as a foundation female. Inca / Kahuna cross and she is still fine and full of luster. We bred her to Macusani and her full Accoyo boy just took a first place ribbon over some pretty nice boys. In fact when we were awarded first place, my jaw dropped and so did the owner of the boy in second place, so used to winning were they. But my little sleeper took first because the judge said she just couldn't get over Lobo's fleece. Well half of that is this girl right here. She did an outstanding job. Her first fleece was so nice I kept it. ...

AOA# DOB: 9/11/200614 yrs
Eye Candy was part of our first alpaca purchase. She was out of the Humming Hill showstring, and has won multiple ribbons. She is a full sister to their award winning herdsire Tizo. She has produced a wonderful group of offspring, and her genetics are in the foundation of our breeding program. Her first cria, Miss Copper Top has produced winners for us that maintain a fine and lustrously dense fleece. Her Sgt. Pepper offspring is standing stud at East Fork, and can be seen on the C&R Suri Studs webpage. Her other progeny have gone on to win ribbons and banners. She has yet another offspring in our 2015 show string, Carmen Rose. Carmen Rose, pictured here, is out of our own fu...

SuriFemale (bred)Beige
AOA# DOB: 9/12/201010 yrs
Holly is a DDF Dutch's American Spirit daughter, and boy can you tell. Everything about her is amazing. She is a retired showgirl that we put right to work in our breeding program. Her first cria, out of our stud You Wish, Highfalutin, took a ribbon at Nationals in 2015. We could not be happier with that combination. In fact Highfalutin made the grade and is being bred to our top 1% EPD male, Mont Blanc. Stay tuned, Holly is bred to Month Blanc for a summer cria. That cria should have some off the charts fleece!...

May Hem By Armed & Dangerous

May Hem By Armed & Dangerous

SuriFemale (bred)Bay Black
AOA# DOB: 5/27/20128 yrs
May Hem is a gorgeous bay black female out of the famous Armed and Dangerous. She was dense and locked from birth and had excellent luster. She won a color championship as a previously shorn! Her post baby second fleece is still all locked up and she just shines. May Hem is such a personality. She is always into something, and her little boy takes right after her. He thinks he is a pro wrestler with his buds, but calm and easy to handle for people. In fact he loves chin scratches and nose kisses. His momma taught him right. May Hem is a favorite of mine, and has produced an outstanding cria. The only reason that I entertain the idea of parting with her is that we really ha...
