As per her original owners, at Alpacas of America, Marilia is a true black Bolivian import. Her ARI certificate states she was screened in Chile, however, AOA tells me she is originally from the Jampaturi Region of Bolivia. This female has produced very nice cria for us, both male and female, 4 nonfading black with very fine fleece and one white cria from a white male. One true black son's histogram returned with an AFD of 19 microns! She is one of the most alert females on the farm, never taking her eye off of you for one minute. She is very cautious around humans but has learned that she also enjoys being sprayed off with cool water on those hot summer days! She is also willing to allow you to intervene and work with her cria. A female on the smaller side, but very correct in conformation, she passes on her fine fleece and deep, rich coloring. Marilia tolerates her worming and pedicures without much of a fuss, and easily walks on a halter and lead after minimal training. She is a de
Maxwell Blue Rock
Light Fawn, 30023773, 1/4 Bolivian, 3/4 Peruvian
If you are looking to improve your fleece quality, crimp, density and style--take a serious look at this LIGHT FAWN boy! Maxwell has been tucked away on a very small farm, and was unable to be used since he was related to all of their females. We discovered him by chance, and what a find!Take a look at his pedigree!:--Royal Fawn (sold for 600,000!), Ppperuvian Auzengate (very limited bloodline--sold years ago to Australia for well over 100,000), Peruvian Accoyo Chimbote (Now Deceased--Sired many Blue Ribbon offspring), 5Peruvian Camelot (sired SCA Magnum and other Champions), and The Royal Phinesse (Offspring awards too numerous to list!)! Maxwell exhibits the traits that have made all of these phenomenal animals in his pedigree what they are. And to add to that, he has strong colors of fawn, maroon, and black in his pedigree so we anticipate colorful offspring! His dam proved herself in an extremely competitive white class at MAPACA bringing home the blue ribbon! His BLACK
Miesque is destined to be a phenomenal production female as well as being just absolutely adorable! She looked like a little wet ink spot when she was born. We were hoping for a black female when we bred her dam to Maxwell Blue Rock and we could not have been happier with the results! Miesque has a beautiful typey head, and very correct proportions. She has nice thick straight legs and a wide chest. Her cria fiber has wonderful length to it and has a cool, very silky feel to it--similar to the coolness of suri fiber. I just can't take my hands out of it when I start playing with her! Miesque's dam, Marilia, is a true black Bolivian import that has had some wonderful cria for us. Marilia has produced several blue ribbon animals for us. She is an awesome Mom, always on watch, and is one of the few dams who will actually sound an alarm call if she feels her cria is in the least bit of a concerning situation for her. Marilia had a CV of 18.2% and an SD of 4.8% at 6 years of age. We have her one daughter in our foundation herd and she has also proved herself to be an awesome mother. Miesque's sire, Maxwell Blue Rock, has just amazing bloodlines in his pedigree. Take a look!!:--Royal Fawn (sold for 600,000!), Ppperuvian Auzengate (very limited bloodline--sold years ago to Australia for well over 100,000), Peruvian Accoyo Chimbote (Now Deceased--Sired many Blue Ribbon offspring), 5Peruvian Camelot (sired SCA Magnum and other Champions), and The Royal Phinesse (Offspring awards too numerous to list!)! Maxwell has been able to let the dark color of the dam's pass through, while improving the fleece characteristics on every one of his cria so far!! He has placed extremely well in some of the most competitive fleece shows in the country!! Maxwell sheared 8.6 pounds of prime blanket fiber at almost 4 years of age!! With these genetics, we are confident that Miesque will be an asset to any serious alpaca breeder!!
