UPDATE: Forever Amber bred to 588 Peruvian Lancaster, 6X Color Champion and Mapaca Herdsire of the Year 2010, has had a beautiful True Black boy named Lancaster's Fellini on Sept. 4th 2011. She's a great mom and he's looking mighty good. We will re breed Amber in the Spring, (probably to Lancaster),as we are more than pleased with this result. We've long wanted a black Lancaster boy.
Forever Amber is a very pretty friendly girl born of two rose grey parents. While she would be color checked as medium brown, she is much more of a maroon color, with a super soft handle to her abundant fleece.
NEWS FLASH: 588 PERUVIAN LANCASTER NAMED HERDSIRE OF THE YEAR, MAPACA 2010. CHATHAM ALPACAS IS RICH WITH LANCASTER GENETICS THAT JUST MIGHT INTEREST YOU.
At the Fall 10 shows, Lancaster's progeny take home honors, right and left.
6x Champion Peruvian Lancaster is simply all you'd want in a herdsire. Not only is Lancaster's fleece consistant, but so are his career show winnings. HE WON HIS 14TH BLUE RIBBON AT MAPACA 05. And, he won the coveted Fawn Male Color Championship at MAPACA 2004. Judged by Mike Safley and selected from over 124 lite, medium, and dark fawn males from the top farms around the country, Lancaster has been called by more than one judge: "the total package".
He has a magnetic presence with a charming, inquisitive personality, and is an absolute gentleman.
UPDATE: LANCASTER'S FELLINI TAKES THE BLUE AT THE EASTERN STATES EXPOSITION, SEPT. 2012. JUDGE WADE GEASE HIGHLY PRAISES BOTH HIS FLEECE AND CONFORMATION AND PHENOTYPE. Lancaster's Fellini was a healthy spitfire from the moment he was born. We have a farm full of fawns so this black beauty of a boy was greatly welcomed. Forever Amber, his mom, is Med. Brown...but really Maroon, if there was such a designation... and is out of two rose greys. Lancaster, his sire, when in the mood, throws black. For example, his daughter is Chatham Alpacas Romany, 13X Black Champion.
