Dulcinea comes to us from the well known gray and black breeding program of Fleecy Dale Alpacas. She is a daughter of STR Lady Rain. Lady Rain was one of the top gray producing alpacas for Fleecy Dale whose lineage traces back to The Silversmith and SA Karrington. She produced multiple Blue Ribbon offspring in level V Shows!! Her offspring always had outstanding fleece characteristics, no matter who she was bred to--dense, fine, and wonderful hand. Lady Rain was bred to a dark brown and white Dark Shaddow (2006 Dark Reserve Herdsire of the Year!) son from Grand River Alpacas to produce Dulcinea. Fleecy Dale's owner held on to Dulcinea until his final dispersment as he felt so strongly about the quality female she is and what she could produce. Although Aviator, Dulcinea's sire, was never shown, Grand River chose to repeat the breeding between Dark Shaddow and Julia Duffy THREE times because they were so impressed with what this produced for them. Julia Duffy, Dulcinea's paternal granddam, had over 14 Championships and NUMEROUS blue ribbons produced from her offspring and their offspring at last count. She is one of Grand Rivers top producing dams. Aviator's full sister Raeka won multiple awards, including the Reserve Championship at the FUTURITY!! Dulcinea's pedigree is just full of Blue Ribbon and Champion producing animals!! She is a great mother, being very attentive to her cria, and even allowing other cria to nurse from her at times. With all the black and gray high quality animals in her background, we plan on taking her back to a dark colored sire for her next cria!!
Awards Received Never Shown due to prior owner's personal circumstances but she has incredible award winning relatives!!
