As you can see, we really like this girl and we're happy that she will stay right here at Avalon Farm as one of our foundations females! She is a product of well respected genetics. This beauty is a conformationally correct package that is covered from head to toe to underbelly with lovely dense, crimpy fiber. She's bright, bright, bright!!! Priscilla makes quite an impression with her typey head, wonderful topknot and proud presence.
During Priscilla's first show appearance, Judge Kristin Buhrmann commented that she had a "beautiful head and lovely soft fiber", but that she needed to gain confidence in the ring. As you can see below in the UPDATE, she did just that!
We expect this beautiful girl to continue to get better and better as she develops and we wanted her first cria to be with someone special! She has been bred to Maplewood Farm's outstanding Matador son, L. Peruvian Laredo. Laredo is both an AOBA N
A blue ribbon whenever he enters the show ring. Gorgeous crimp, handle and density. Perfect conformation and ring presence. His first cria have arrived and display the same typy body and head plus the great fleece of their sire.
Laredo is co-owned with Long View Grange Alpacas - Bob and Donna Long
Primrose is a striking female with dark brown, crimpy and fine fiber. A lovely head, excellent conformation, good bone, and full coverage complete the picture. She has lots of style and presence.
Primrose has an impressive pedigree with deep dark color genetics, including such well known males as Peruvian Matador, Peruvian Camelot, and Peruvian Bueno. Both her dam and her sire are blue ribbon winners.
Priscilla, Primrose's dam, has proven to be an excellent producer. She got pregnant readily, gave birth without any difficulty, and had ample milk for her cria. We look for these qualities in our Foudation production females, as they are traits typically passed from generation to generation.
We offer Primrose with a breeding to any of our herdsires. She can be bred this spring 2011 to the buyer's choice of champion AFA Herdsires. We recommend our black color champion, Our Peruvian Black Jag.
EVERY FEMALE purchased from Avalon Farm is eligible for reduced price breedings to any solely owned AFA herdsire FOR HER BREEDING LIFE, regardless of owner.
