A petite female, Sassafras is said to be a good mother, producing ample milk for her crias. To date, she has produced suri female crias. Sire: Cantano of Peru Dam: Sun Tea, a Black Ice of Bolivia daughter
Chip's Peruvian Black Mail is a full Peruvian true black herdsire with very dense, lustrous, twisted locks. He has perfect confirmation and has been producing some phenomenal show winning offspring in a variety of colors. All of them are suri offspring with super nice locks and luster. Black Mail has even produced a beautiful grey suri male out of a grey suri dam. Black Mail usually produces the dam's coloring but has produced a few darker colors than the dam. When bred to black dams, Black Mail will usually produce a true black offspring. For the best results, I would recommend a fawn or darker female to breed to Black Mail.

Retirement pricing on this granddaughter of the acclaimed CANTANO! Our excellent agistor is retiring, and therefore our treasured alpacas are priced to sell quickly.
Acquired in trade, JULEP has not yet been bred, but is very willing, flirting at the males' fence at every opportunity! JULEP's prebreeding exam was performed August 2009 at WSU, where Dr. Ahmed Tibary deemed her to be ready to breed: great body condition, normal reproductive anatomy and producing good follicles!
Looking at JULEP, my eyes see fawn, but my heart sees black! A color genetics analysis of her pedigree reveals deep color on both sides. With a black sire, JULEP is carrying black: bred to solid black, she will produce black crias 50% of the time.
FIBER: very soft-handling. Parting perfectly down her neck and along her backline, JULEP's fiber relocks quickly after shearing. Her lock structure extends well down her legs.
CONFORMATION: correct, sturdy bone, pleasing medium spear-shaped ears. A petite female: 120 lbs.
BITE: beautiful, correct alignment. Photos available upon request. A few years ago, Julep was treated aggressively for a jaw abscess. It was not completely successful, and she may need a course of antibiotics once in a while. She is very tolerant of treatments.
TRAINING: JULEP walks well on a halter/lead & loads in a minivan and is very easy to handle for herd health.
Having no suri herdsires, we are unable to provide a breeding for Julep, and so she is priced accordingly. Due to her (subtle) patterning, our opinion is that she should be bred to a solid, medium- or dark-colored male.
