Beautiful dense fiber. Nice crimp. Solid conformation. Great temperament. Come see her.
Sire - Bravado. Of 10 cias, PPeruvian Macarena had four sired by Hemingway: NWA,Ltd Marcie, dam of our Bravado; NWA,Ltd Predictor; NWA,Ltd Handsome; and NWA,Ltd Hektor. The quality of the Hemingway X Macarena cross is the reason we added Hibernia to our breeding program.
Dam - Coleen had four crias by PPeruvian Guellermo - all fawn - for Alpacas of Canada, and one white by Hektor before coming to Sixth Day Farm. She gave us white crias by Bravado, Handsome, and Mister Maverick.
Coleen was imported from Bolivia in 1998 at an estimated age of four years. It would be nice if there was more information available on the Bolivian imports, since overall they seem to be a very good group of alpacas.
Progeny: 2007 - Handy Hannah (by Handsome) 'Uncle to neice' matings were preferred by many of the master breeders of the past, and still are today. This pedigree was designed to concentrate the influence of Hemingway AND Macarena. Hannah's 2009 histogram tells us that it worked: FD-19.2 SD-5.3 SD-27.6 %>30-3.8 Curve-54.4 What does not show is the fact that Hannah's primaries are much finer than most! Certified Sorted(TM) by Carrie Hull 2009: 6.9lbs GRADE-1!
2008 - Harriet (by Salute) Another beautifully linebred alpaca, the result of breeding a Hemingway grandson to a Hemingway granddaughter, bred to STAY fine. 2009: FD-18.7 SD-4.6 CV24.7 %>30-2.1
2009 - Highlife (by Liberty) A very fancy female, the result of crossing Accoyo Felix with Alianza Hemingway lines, and a touch of Bolivian. This one is a winner. And for you color afficionados, 'Highlife' has a large fawn patch.
We would like to keep at least one of Hibernia's daughters to carry on our linebreeding program, and can let this pretty Hemingway granddaughter go to a breeder who prefers outcrossing.
