Good confirmation a large frame and fleece with long staple length and tight crimp throughout with a low CV best describe this 3/4 peruvian girl. She comes from a bloodline with good reproductive history. She has a great personality, always the first one to come up to me in the pasture. She will make a great foundation female, she is a easy breeder with good milk and throws healthy cria.
We are very excited to have De Beers. We looked at over 30 males at Snowmass and continued to come back to this one.What a genetic combination Snowmaster/Hemingway/Sollocota and very unique in the east. He has an elite fleece, with a very high frequency of very densley packed crimp as well as incredibly fine. He has nothing but White in his lineage. His first Cria's have arrived !!!!! The first 13 cria are on the ground and 9 are GIRLS and they are all awesome. This guy just stamps out one outstanding cria after another. Snowmass De Beers is Co-Owned by Ed and Charlene Friedman of Mountain Edge Alpacas in State college PA.
WE'RE GOING TO SEE WHO'S PAYING ATTENTION HERE. THIS GIRL GETS SO MANY HITS...
SO FOR BLACK FRIDAY,CYBER MONDAY, OR WHATEVER YOU WANT TO CALL IT, KIMBERLITE IS SPECIALLY PRICED AT $1,500! (PRICE GOOD TILL 12/7/13 ONLY)
LOOKING FOR A NO-NONSENSE FEMALE WHO HAS CRIAS EFFORTLESSLY YEAR AFTER YEAR! KIMBERLITE HAS BEEN ONE OF OUR BEST PRODUCERS.
KIMBERLITE DELIVERED A BEAUTIFUL BEIGE FEMALE CRIA BY SSF PERUVIAN PABLO IN JUNE OF THIS YEAR. SHE HAS BEEN REBRED TO ARKALPACA'S PERUVIAN DYNASTEE FOR ANOTHER SPECTACULAR CRIA IN 2014.
THIS GIRL HAS PRODUCED 6 CRIA IN 6 YEARS AND WILL BE WORKING ON #7.
Her 2011 daughter, TCS Faded Glory, received a blue ribbon at the 2012 Buckeye Show. Faded Glory sheared over 8 lbs of 5" fleece in 2013.
Kimberlite's 2009 son, TCS Gabriel, has a 2 year histogram of OF 19.4 AFD, 3.4 SD, 17.4% CV, 99.3%! TCS Gabriel placed 1st at the 2012 MAPACA Spin Off and 2011 AOBA National Spin-off.
After the spectacular 2012 male cria sired by ArkAlpaca's Peruvian Dynastee, we decided to repeat that breeding for her 2014 cria. Dynastee is a son of MFI Peruvian Abundance and grandson of Snowmass Millenium. After sorting Dynastee's fiber in 2011, I felt he would be a perfect match for Kimberlite. He had outstanding fleece even at 5 years of age. His primary to secondary fiber grade is close, and he has outstanding brightness, density, staple length and crimp structure for age. I received a 2013 sample of Dynastee's fiber and WOW, it is just as nice at 7 years!
Kimberlite is the daughter of Snowmass DeBeers and grand-daughter of Peruvian Snowmaster. She also has Peruvian Hemingway in her lineage.
Kimberlite is a fabulous mother. No milking or rebreeding issues. She is a very attentive mother.
Her conformation is arrow-straight with strong bone structure. She is perfectly proportioned from front, side and rear.
