Del Ria is a tall, stretchy, beige female that has produced cria in beige, maroon, white and brown - three males and four females. Her sire, DeMonte, is one of the densest Huacaya herdsires at Alpacas of America, a trait he passed on to Del Ria.
Del Ria has high amplitude, high frequency crimp with some bundling and good coverage. She is one of the best production females on our farm, easily birthing crias that weigh 20+ lbs without assistance. She is an easy breeder and an excellent milk producer with her cria reaching 100 lbs or more by 8 months of age. Her cria usually have high IgGs.
Del Ria's daughters did well in the Alpacapalooza 2008 spin-off with Maude winning a 3rd place ribbon and Rosie winning a 2nd place with a score of 97 out of 100, causing the judge to comment "almost perfect".
Pleased with the crias Del Ria produced when bred to C&K Jake, our dark silver grey, Aussie Rockford son, we went back to Jake again for her 2010 cria. Born in June, her
C & K Jake
Dark Silver Grey, 845137, Peruvian & Chilean
Son of DSG Aussie Rockford (Felix line), Jake is a stately male carrying heavy bone and a masculine, wedge-shaped head. A great producer of daughters, Jake's crias typically are of strong color (ebony, mahogany, cherry), exhibiting bright, crimpy fleeces and excellent vigor.

Rosie is a tall, regal mahogany female carring substantial bone. Her black points attest to the fact that she carries black from her DSG sire, son of Champion-maker Aussie Rockford. Check her show accomplishments below: Spin-Off judge describes her fiber as "nearly perfect"!
Rosie's maternal grandsire, DeMonte, was one of the densest Huacaya herdsires at Alpacas of America.
Rosie has a gentle nature and is easy to handle. Rosie placed 5th in a class of 10 at halter, and was so well-behaved she left the ring with the judge's compliments and thanks! She is happy to stand near people and let her back be stroked. We find her to be very calm and patient with the antics of rambunctious crias.
Rosie has conceived easily and given birth to two crias. Athena's medium-brown fleece was amazing and so crimpy, right from day one, that the micro-bundles curled down on themselves. Nubbly curls everywhere: throughout her blanket, down her legs nearly to her toes, up her neck and even into her bonnet. Zachariah is a bright, white male who has complete coverage from topknot to toes and a strong, upright conformation.
Rosie is a caring mom and will stand as long as her cria wants to nurse. Rosie's dam is a terrific milker, and so Rosie is genetically programmed to do the same. Our vet feels Rosie's udder may have more "fat" cells than milk cells due to being overweight during puberty. As a result, she does not produce a full milk supply, and her crias need supplemental bottles. This is a very economical way to acquire a producer of good crias. You might wish to raise one daughter to replace Rosie, and then retire Rosie to be a companion female and wonderful auntie to your other crias. Her price has been adjusted to reflect this.
We are brokering Rosie for our associate farm JRAM Alpacas. Combine alpacas from both farms, and take advantage of multiple-purchase discounts. See JRAM's alpacas here: http://www.alpacanation.com/jramalpacas.as
