Tamara is the farm favorite. Perhaps it's because she has had 4 females and one male. That always makes a difference. She has the most beautiful big brown eyes. Her temperment is wonderful, unless it's those last days of pregnancy. Her female crias are all friendly and take after her mom. She has a beautiful solid medium rose gray in her saddle. Her first girl was before we acquired Tamara, her 2nd girl Lady Jane we purchased along with her. Lady Jane was my in-laws favorite and I thought I would be disowned if we sold her. The first girl we had as breeders was from Tamara and is Hannah out of The Double E's Hannibal. Hannah is beautiful, nice conformation, friendly face, bay black with some grey running through. Then she had a boy Indi Max, the farm favorite - one of the friendliest alpacas you would ever meet. And then she had Indi Max's full sister Autumn Dancer. Autumn is a light brown girl who has very nice high frequency crimp and a nice dense fleece, with a fine handle and
ADDW Peruvian Zamboni
Bay Black, 1174007, Full Peruvian
We are very pleased to be adding Zamboni to our herdsire row. Peruvian Zamboni, sired by Black Icecapade (who sold in the 6 figures in 2007) was born to full Peruvian, 1/2 Accoyo, TH Miss Marilyn, a double blue ribbon winning dam who decends from the Kenamori Gold and Royal Fawn lines.
Zamboni's very dense blanket has wonderful bundling and crimp. As Zam was being shorn, there were gasps of disbelief as his color, brightness and crimp was revealed. Even the shearer (an alpaca breeder himself), was rightfully impressed!
Zamboni has developed into a strong, straight, gentle alpaca - who gets down to his job when its time. He has bred a number of females and his first ones are due late spring of 2008. Zamboni reminds us a great deal of Captain Nemo. They both have excellent fleece, terrific top knot, superb conformation and a macho presence that just won't quit.
Crimson Ice has tons of potential! Our wonderful girl, Tamara, has always given us the most amazing cria. From Lady Jane, Hannah, Autumn Dancer and Indi Max. And here Crimson Ice is another wonderful boy. His Sire, Zamboni, is out of the Black Ice line, and we have chosen to keep the name in that line too.
We took Crimson Ice to his first show at the Empire Extravaganza. We were disappointed that he didnt' make it into full fleece, but we were stunned when Amanda gave him the 1st place ribbon in a huge class of shorn darks. And, to top it off, the 2nd place was his 1/2 brother from another farm.
That being said, we love his fleece and will continue to showcase him in future shows, so we can't wait to see how he does. We know he is a standout in our pastures, which is hard to do with some of the flashy boys we have out there.
