Belinda Culco is a proven dam with a great track record. Her last two crias were both true blacks and females. She is a wonderful mother, always has plenty of milk,does not have problems delivering her babies and produces cria better than herself. She is due in early April with a cria out of LB Copper Moon who has exceptionally dense brown fiber. Belinda can also be purchased with Copper's latest cria, a medium brown male with very nice medium brown fiber. Price for the cria when purchased with Belinda is only $500.
NEWSFLASH: Belinda's 2004 cria placed third at the prestigious Ohio Alpaca Fest and her half sister, First Edition(Effie) also won a ribbon in the skein competion.
First Edition, call name Effie, is THE foundation female at Tanglewood Farm since she was also the first cria born to the farm here. I have decided to put her on our sales list since I now have several of her offspring, and she would be a real asset to another farm. She is a good mix of Chilean, Bolivian and U.S. lines, statuesque, very healthy, true black, black girl with a commanding presence, generally is pregnant after one breeding, with wonderful mothering qualities such as attention to cria, delivering without problems, and having tons of milk for her babies.
Effie's fiber is very soft, long, and lustrous and spins up into a lovely yarn. Her fiber is so black it almost looks blue. Her spun yarn placed sixth in the spun yarn competition at Ohio Alpaca Fest in 2005.
When bred to black, or a male that produces black, Effie has produced nothing but black, and when bred to rosegrey, she produced a rosegrey. To date, Effie has produced four females and one male, all black except for one rose grey. She has been re-bred to our Black Mesquite son, EOA Woody, for a 2012 June cria.
Newsflash: On June 13th Effie produced a very strong and healtlhy grey/rose grey male(not sure about the color yet) by our EOA Woody. Birth was, as all of Effie's births have been, classic, with cria standing on his own within half an hour, nursing within an hour, placenta was delivered right on time in perfect condition, and mom has, as usual, plenty of good milk. What more could anyone want in a female? Cria weighed in at a pretty good weight too, 17.5 lbs.
Effie has been re-bred to Kaleidoscope's Make it So for late July 2013 cria.
