It's All About The Fiber

We have carefully bred our females for low micron and dense fleece qualities, fineness into maturity, strong square conformation for easier breeding and birthing frames, and temperament. Our females have exceptional Mothering skills that have resulted in minimal intervention by humans in birthing or supplemental cria feeding. We selected two exceptional herdsires with proven track records to improve our breeding program and take it to the next level. Each herdsire is very different in fleece characteristics and comes from a very different genetic background. In the show ring, the judges generally have commented on the quality of our breeding program for consistent fleece characteristics for crimp and fineness and sturdy square framed conformation backed with fiber in our animals. Consistency in both fleece and conformation is extremely important because it speaks to the overall quality of multiple animals bred and raised on a farm rather than just a single animal that does well in the show ring. Purchasing animals from a strong good quality breeding program tends to ensure more reliable future generations of offspring from your purchase.

A few thoughts to leave you with - there are many ways to live with Alpaca and enjoy these magical animals. They make good companions, yard art, pets, stud farm, fiber production animals, and the most complex and highest risk – a breeding operation. Each has its own merits depending on your goals and each is a viable Alpaca experience. We can help advise you on animal purchases, breeding selections, boarding, handling, and support.
