MISS ELENA Elena inherited all of her dams mothering traits. If anything, she is even more protective than her dam. She is an easy breeder, easy birther, and gives plenty of milk to her cria. She has raised three (2 females) strong healthy cria. Her first (Les Brown) was never shown, but the two girls have won numerous ribbons. Check out Bambi and Mink to see what this girl can do! Elena is bred to VAC Grand Leo for a June 06 cria.
VAC Leo, son of full-accoyo 4Peruvian Pachacuti, is a handsome, densely-boned, macho male weighing in at 240 lbs! He has very dense crimpy coverage with ringlets down to his toes; yet his fiber is fine and has an incredible handle. His CV continues to go down (16.8 at his 2005 shearing!) and he imparts these wonderful fiber characteristics to his progeny. He has his sire's stately head and perfect bite -- his teeth have never been trimmed. He has always settled his dates on the first try, making him an ideal candidate for drive-by breedings which are offered at a discount. Leo's dam's sire is Bravo Bravo HST G468, at one time the highest selling male in the country.
Leo currently has 8 offspring on the ground, with three more on the way, and all have been an overall improvement on the dam. In Fall 2004 one of Leo's offspring, Araxie, took a 1st place in the ring and Reserve Champion in the fleece show at the 2005 Empire Extravaganza Alpaca Show.
Bambi was the first female cria born on our farm. A welcome sight after 4 male crias! She has buttery soft, fine, crimpy fleece. And, lots of it! She has a great disposition, and is a great PR animal, always ready with a kiss for visitors. Bambi carry's Pachacuti,Don Julio,Bravo Bravo and Fidel bloodlines. Bambi's 08 cria out of Meriano is a spectacular MF female. Soft crimpy fleece, and tons of it. We are so pleased with this cria, we bred Bambi back to Meriano. Bambi had her second Meriano cria(another girl, yea!)and she is just as spectacular as the first. Bambi is currently open but comes with 2 breedings to any Adirondack Alpaca Breeders Ass. herdsires.
