Bolivias incredible presence, upright carriage, even temperament, excellent fleece quality and coverage, and enviable genetics make her very desirable to a deep colored breeding program. Bolivia is our perfect foundation girl model. She has produced two stunning blue ribbon girls.
Check out the dark brown/rose grey female, Libby, her 2004 daughter sired by the late Victors Vic Jr. & bay black Sable, her '05 daughter sired by true black Patagonia's Compadre for the quality she produces. See Stonyridge Alpacas (OR) foundation list for her gorgeous offspring!
Her sire, AFRs Hong Kong, is a Victor son, and is out of an exceptional import, Pperuvian Ada. His white color misleads his genetics as he consistently produced deep color when bred to color. He brings Accoyo genetics to Bolivias strong color pedigree.
Given Bolivia's grey ancestors, and Libby's grey '07 female cria & '08 rose grey male out of breedings to Aussie Rockford, he was chosen as Bolivia's mate for her '09 cria. With Rockford's consistent record of show quality and champion offspring, we have high hopes for this next cria, and on 7/22/09 "Rockford's Argentina" arrived! She got so dirty so quickly, it took us awhile to determine that she's a curly, white little girl!
Her 2009 breeding to Maximus Pacus resulted in a home run: on 8/1/2010, right after a storm, FARL's Hailstorm ("Hailey") arrived - a beautiful, crimpy, soft, black female, weighing in at ~15 lbs.
In 2010, we bred her to our macho, Stonyridge Midnight Eclipse, and in August, 2011, Bolivia gave us a beautiful medium brown boy, "FARL's Wilbur Wright" - know to all, far and wide, as "Wee Willie". After the fabulous run of female cria, she's entitled to give us a male to compare them to! He's soft, crimpy, and very, very curious. Favorite behavior? Burying himself in the hay, and eating from the inside out!
Bolivia is trained and handled in the CameliDynamics (TM) way, so she's a pretty easy gal on a halter
