Andre's show record has proven him to be one of the finest Bueno sons of all times. He has the show presence, conformation, fiber characteristics, black pigment and color that makes him one of the most sought after herdsires to improve your herd. WE CONSIGNED ANDRE'S DAUGHTER, MAPLE BROOK FAWN, TO THE "BREEDER'S EDGE AUCTION" IN LEESBURG, VIRGINIA ON SEPT 24, AND SHE WAS THE HIGHEST SELLING ALPACA AT THE AUCTION - SHE SOLD FOR $130,000.00 TO NANCY JOHANSON OF BROOKHOLLOW FARM. We are extremely pleased with Andre's crias - he has produced color from light fawn to true black.
When we received the 2010 Making of Champions catalog I looked through it as I always do, a little envious. I didn't get very far. Lot #2 stopped me in my tracks. She reminded me so much of a female we lost a few years ago and still miss. Envy became longing!! We had planned a trip to Phoenix anyway so we went to the sale...just to "look". My feelings didn't change after I saw her in person and she's now part of our herd. The bonus with Heidi's Little Princess is that she was bred to Snowmass Matrix. Great! She did her share of traveling before she arrived at Cedar Hollow but she settled in nicely and we kept a close eye on her through the heat and humidity of the midwest. On August 22 she delivered her cria. A cute as a button, light fawn, female that weighed just a little over 9 pounds. K-State took care of the plasma transfer and on the third day we brought them back home. She's gaining every day, has cute little fuzzy bunny ears and follows me around while I work. Life is good!
We breed Heidi back to our Snowmass Quechua's Chaccoyo and she delivered yet ANOTHER female on 9/24/11 during our Open Farm Day. I was delighted and so was the throngs of spectators!
HEIDI IS ALSO LISTED ON THE 10 FOR 10 PACKAGE. Best buy.
Heidi's fleece was sorted by a certified sorter on 10/19/13. Here are the results: (2011) 1 & 2, 3.22 pounds 7 out of 10 for brightness, (2012) 1 & 2, 2.0 pounds, (2013) 1 & 2 & 3, 2.31 pounds with an 8 out of 10 for brightness. I'm happy with that.
