Mystia is a light silver gray, Danko daughter with huge dark eyes. Her fiber is soft as silk with a consistent crimp. She is a wonderful mother, even taking on an orphan along with her own cria.

Mystia sells with a breeding to any owned or co-owned herdsire of your choice.

  Patagonia's Neruda  
    Dark Silver Grey, 814613  

We bought Patagonia's Neruda at the 2007 Futurity Show and Sale and he is now part of our group of elite Herdsires. His previous owners at Alpacas de la Patagonia considered him one of their top three herdsires. Patagonia reserved those herdsires for client use only and as a result, outside breedings to Neruda have ALWAYS been restricted. He was "a cornerstone of their black and grey breeding program" giving them their "FINEST black and grey fleeces that are virtually free of medullated fiber". At 8 years of age his histogram is 23.1m/5.3sd/22.9cv/9.2%>30. Neruda's crias are easily identifiable by their extremely fine fleeces, beautiful heads, substantially thick bone and extensive fiber coverage. With more than 120 crias on the ground, Neruda has proven that when bred to black or grey females, 96% of the resulting offspring have been black or grey in color.

Neruda's sire Shackleton, a black male brought from Chile, was for many years one of the finest fleeced males found in

Print Listing | Certificate | Histogram

Minnie Pearl is a beautiful light silver gray female with only one tiny black spot on her hip. Her fleece is still fine and soft and her conformation and bite are correct. She is the daughter of renowned Patagonia's Neruda who is known for the lasting fineness of his own fleece and the fleeces of his offspring.

Pearl has delivered 2 crias, both silver gray, and is an excellent mother, calm and attentive to her babies. She has tons of milk and her crias grow out well. Her '08 cria, QR Plum Blossom, was a blue ribbon winner at the North American Alpaca Show in 2009.

Pearl is open at this time but we are offering a breeding for Pearl to the Quarry Ridge herdsire of your choice.

In 2012, Pearl delivered a beautiful MRG boy named RUMBLE STRIP. You can view his picture to the right. Rumble Strip went on to take several top ribbons and was sold at under 1 year of age.

She is currently breeding to multi-Chamion, Spartan's Silver Lining.
