Ninia is a very friendly girl out of our Pinta and Alpacas of Tualatin Valley's Zeus. She is a light color that looks white because it shines so much. She has great locks that run the full length of her body. Ninia has the "suri" head and the flat lock structure. Ninia is 1/2 Peruvian and shows her Accoyo heritage. Although Ninia was never shown, her dam was a multiple award winner and her sire has sired a number of award winning offspring.

Ninia had her first cria on 6/18/2008. It was a white female cria with light fawn markings on her back. She weighted 20.9 pounds at birth and was standing up all the way in 35 minutes.

Ninia's second cria is a male that was born on 6/18/2009 and weighed in at 23.0 pounds. We checked on Ninia at 10:00, no baby. At 12:00 her new cria was standing, walking and looking for something to drink.

Ninia's third cria is a 20 pound male born on 6/29/2010. Cria is spitting image of his brother and sister.

Ninia is a great mother a

  ATV Donavon Silk  
    White, 20022976  

Donavon come to us from Alpacas of Tualatin Valley and had his first breeding season was 2007. Donavon's parentage goes back to the famous Torbio. His has lovely pencil lock from head to tail and is a very gentle and quiet guy. He has settled righ in with the other two studs we have without much of a discussion but is not a push-over to anyone.

Silk's first cria out of our Ninia was born on 6/18/2008 and was a white and fawn girl weighing 20.9 pounds. She was up in 35 minutes and nursing in about one hour.

Silk is a very great breeder. He is easy to handle, is nice to the ladies and knows just what to do and doesn't waste time getting job done. We are calling him "Mr quick-shot" now since he has bred our Ninia only once in 2008 and twice in 2009 and gotten her pregnant each time. Makes breeding season much easier.

Great looks, good linage and a easy breeder, what more could you ask for in a stud?

Martin was born on 6/29/2010 and is considered beige and had a faint fawn stripe down his back. He weighed 20 pounds at birth and kept growing. He has long legs and has a long exquisite fleece which is high in luster and great lock structure.

Martin's fleece now looks white except when compared to true white. His fleece has a real Perl like shine in the sun.

Martin was ready for breeding in 2012 but his owners did not do any breeding for that year and so far have not done any since. Martin needs a chance to show he can produce, he shows his interest but need a chance.

Really nice guy and not pushy or aggressive.
