Carmaleta joins our herd as a proven foundation female, capable of producing offspring of award winning merit. Carmy is a deep dark fawn, carrying good density and excellent overall phenotype. Carmy's 2008 offspring, Valentina, is also listed on our site, for reference.
Carmy herself was shown and placed 3rd in halter at GWAS in 2004 and 2nd in fleece at the ABR Fall Festival in 2003. Carmy's 2006 offspring, Maksim, placed First in his white class at GWAS in 2008 under Judge Amanda Vandenbosch. Valentina was shown for the first time in Nov 08 and took a Second at the Fall Fest in Colorado.
Carmy brings some fine traits to a breeding match up. She is solid and well balanced, densely fleeced, well covered with good bone and excellent presence. She is in the prime of her life, having successfully delivered and raised four cria, two male and two female.
Carmie's fall '09 cria is a beautiful fawn female, Miranda, from her breeding to Kanaka! Miranda is well
Peruvian X Gregor is exactly what we were looking for in a brown male. He has the conformation and style that says "stud", along with the fleece we all strive for in our darker colored animals. He is simply a gorgeous, commanding brown herdsire. We are pleased to Co-Own this Herdsire with Bacon's Alpaca Farm of Clear Lake, IA.
Gregor presents himself with confidence, and an easy going, gentle manner. For his age, he has developed very well. His fleece regrowth is excellent, with a long staple, well defined, very consistent character throughout with a tremendous brightness within. His fleece has a soft hand and his coverage is superior.
Gregor's micron was a very respectable 20.4AFD at one year old, and at three it is holding finely at 21.8 AFD. Very Impressive for such a deeply colored brown male!!! His fleeces have received high marks too; in the AOBA certified fleece show at Mid-America Alpaca 10/08, he received high marks from judge Shannon McConnell.
Buckeye of PEF is a graceful, elegantly attractive yearling male. He is a deeply colored brown, just like his sire, Peruvian X Gregor. He is a pleasure to have on the farm, having an easy going disposition and a quiet manner about him. He is never the one to stir up any kind of trouble, other than a bit of wrestling with the other yearlings.
Buckeye has a very fine fleece, with surprisingly soft hand and brightness which catches you off guard when you open up his fleece. We have considered showing him this fall, but will wait to see how his fleece comes back in. If it continues as we hope, we will have to strongly consider a show outing or two.
Buckeye is easy to spot, being the tallest, most graceful of the yearlings. He carries himself very well and is always on the alert, making him even more noticeable in the pasture.
