Gilda first impressed us when we saw her at auction several years ago. We were quite upset when we werent the winning bidder, and kept in touch with the sellers. As it winds up, the winning bidder was not able to fulfill the terms of the contract. Gilda went back home to be sold at auction again. I was contacted and told about this turn of events and attended the auction. I was just as impressed as I was a few years before and, this time, I was lucky enough to take her home.
Since then Gilda has given us amazing offspring. She is very easy to breed, has never needed assistance in birthing and is a PHENOMINAL mother. She has been seen propping her newborns between her front legs and walking them along until they are ready to solo.
She is phenotypically stunning, as are her cria. Gilda has a beautiful head, regal presence, perfect proportion, solid straight legs and lovely vicuna markings.
Gilda is one of the most laid-back alpacas we will probably ever own. Nothing seems to get to her. This easy going temperament and her production record have helped us decide that we should allow another farm to enjoy Gilda and what she can add to their program as well. She would be an EXCELLENT purchase for a beginning breeder. Of course, experienced breeders will appreciate just how nice it is to have a female like Gilda in the barn.
Although Gilda is getting older, she is in truly amazing shape and I would have no hesitation with breeding her again, She will sell bred to your choice of Emelise Alpacas herdsires.
