Diomedes' VANORA of Stirling Ridge

12 yrs:19.8 micron, CF 97.7% ZOW

Diomedes' VANORA of Stirling Ridge

HuacayaFemale (bred)White
AOA# DOB: 9/19/200812 yrs
Vanora was bred to Grazing Hills Bradford and birthed a gorgeous girl on 6/17/2020 named Ceilidh (Kaylee). They both have amazing fleece with the super inherited quality of lingering fineness and we fully expect this cria to follow in their impressive steps. Vanora was rebred to Bradford for a 2021 cria. Vanora's 2020 histogram is now posted--super nice! Click on "histogram" for the full report. She has consistently been one of our heaviest fleece weights while being one of our lowest micron. That is a combo we want to keep and reproduce! Lingering fineness. [Remember this gal is 12 years old!] EPD report for 2019: Vanora is in the top 1% (actually 0.3%) again for Fleece Wei...

ARI# AOA# 32173253   DOB: 6/26/201010 yrs
We are very happy to have acquired BRADFORD from Grazing Hills Alpacas! Bradford is the half brother of our dearly departed Dirk. Both are sons of Accoyo-America DIOMEDES who is now deceased. Diomedes has imprinted his handsome head and his amazing fleece characteristics to these sons of his and for that reason we jumped at the chance to have another Diomedes boy on the farm! Bradford x Vanora = Ceilidh (Kaylee) our first Bradford baby born on the farm June 2020. She's a beaut! Bradford has a beautiful head, nice bite, boxy conformation, wonderfully straight topline, super fleece characteristics. Handsome on all counts. He is an eager breeder, ready for action, and we are offeri...

Stirling Ridge KENZIE

HuacayaFemale (bred)White
AOA# DOB: 6/2/200515 yrs
We have bred Kenzie to Bradford and are waiting to see if it takes! She has produced two of our best boys from Diomedes' breedings. Diomedes is deceased and our two Diomedes boys are also in alpaca heaven. Bradford is a Diomedes son with a 17 micron fleece at 10 years, so we are hoping for a beautiful cria, and with color. 2019 EPD RESULTS (at 14 years): Ranked 54% for AFD, value —.154 meaning her cria should have a finer fleece than breed average TOP 20% SDAFD, value —.258, her cria should have a more uniform fleece than breed average Ranked 42% for Spin Fineness, value —.377, her cria should have a lower SF than breed average ...

Here's one pretty, easy keeping little lady with a fleece that's SO USEABLE! She is now bred to Bradford and is due in September 2021. See their 2020 histograms!

Stirling Ridge MUIREALL

HuacayaFemale (bred)Medium Brown

Touche is literally that! He's spot on! (But, without the spots!) We recently purchased him and he is bred to several of our females. Excited to see what he puts on the ground!

Her 2020 histogram is in! See in sidebar! Blowing us away with her fineness at her age.

Nice boy! And in very good shape for his 18 years. I've been using him often to spit-check my bred girls and he definitely is able to breed. Just used him in 2020 with Finneana to lengthen her fine staple. If bought, we ask that you give him some TLC in the way of extra nutrition to keep his weight up: alfalfa or chow. Here are his 2019 EPD results: AFD, value .444, likely to give cria a higher fiber diameter than average, ranked 88.9% SDAFD, value +.171, likely to give cria a less uniform fleece than average, ranked 90.7% Spin Fineness, value +.596, like to add to SF, ranked 91.8% %F>30, value —2.102, likely to produce cria with less micron >30 than ave...
