White, Full Peruvian
Dorsey is another of our foundation hembras that came into the country with the third Peruvian import. She has had several award winnig crias and we expect the one that was just born on June 23, 2004 to follow suit. He is the son of Heart's Desire Farms herdsire Predictor. His name is The Alianza Prophecy and is pictured with Dorsett in the photos. Dorsett is another one of those solid foundation hembras that is worth her weight in gold to a breeding program. Especially when you see the quality of the progeny she has produced.
Dorsett's next cria, sired by Maplebrook Bravado, is due in June, so she will be taken off of our sales list next month. Buy now for cria in two months, or wait until she is rebred.
April 2005 update: Dorsett's cria The Alianza Prophecy took second place in his class of Juvenile White Male Huacayas at the North American Alpaca Show in Springfield, MA this month. We are proudly displaying his red ribbon. Look for him at the Empire Show in the
An impressive Full Alianza Peruvian, Bravado is our new foundation herdsire. This young guy is fineness personified in a perfect conformational package. And just look at the beautiful bundling in his fleece. He is the result of combining the finest and most proven Peruvian alpaca genetics in North America. Bravado's sire is Bueno, owned by Mike and Robin Tierney of Maplebrook Farm.
On the other side of his pedigree, Bravado's dam, NWA Ltd., Marcie contributes another line of proven superior genetics. Her sire was the world famous Hemingway.
Hemingway is known worldwide and Bueno has produced over 100 winning offspring to date, and we think Bravado is one of his best. We are certain that Bravado will go on to sire as many champions as his father, and one of them could belong to you! His first son, Bravado's Hurricane, was born in September, and his first daughter, Bravado's Diamond, was born in November. Both have fantastic fleeces! But don't take our word for it, c
When he was evaluated by a famous international alpaca consultant we were told, "You need to control the genetics of this one. Don't sell a partial interest to anyone and just lease him out once or twice a year to selected farms." A real compliment - and good advice - but we have quite a stable of white males, so if you want to add some true fineness to your herd you can control access to these genetics yourself.
Another wonderful son of Bravado. His dam, Dorsett, has distinguished herself by the finenes of the PRIMARY fibers in the fleeces of her offspring and grandcrias.

Currently D'Artagnon stands at stud with Carrie Hull at Timber Basin Alpacas. Carrie Hull is a Certified Sorter (TM) who has visited countless farms, has seen numerous herdsires, and evaluated hundreds of fleeces. Prior to that, she has over a decade of experience working with one of the top alpaca farms in the country. If Carrie Hull wants to use D'Artagnon on her herd, maybe you should consider using him to

D'Artagnon has a fantastic pedigree and EPDs. He would be a great herdsire to decrease fiber diameter and increase staple length, at the same time decreasing % fibers over 30 microns and reducing percentage of medullation.
