Ginny is a deep blue black, with a bit of medium silver grey strands peppered on her upper neck. Her fiber is soft and smooth and dreamy to the touch, something not readily apparent if one only considers her AFD in her histograms. It was apparent to the spin-off judges in the few shows where I entered her fiber, two firsts and a Judges Choice Suri (out of 33 entries). And that blue black color is incredible! When the sun hits it, it really is such a deep black that it takes on an indigo/blue hue throughout.
Ginny is solidly built and has always been in excellent health. She has had one cria so far, birthing with ease. Her milk supply was ample and she took to mothering from the start.

Cory is a solidly built PPeruvian Ramilo grandson via HHSF Peruvian Accoyo Yoder. He has the density, lock structure and Luster one would expect coming from this genetic background. His locks simply glow, even in low light! To date, he has sired three medium fawns, two light fawns and a bay black. Color is definitely in his genes. His cria have the lowest micron count and most brilliant luster in our herd, and their fiber has held on to both these qualities well beyond their second shearing. When bred to lesser quality females, the outcome is always delightful, with the babes fleeces exhibiting improvement over their dams. At 4.5 years of age, Corys AFD is 22.2, with an SD of 4.7. Good Stuff!
And Corys dam, Samoya of Bolivia (aka Mom), is simply a delight. She's never needed ANY medical attention in the seven plus years we've had her. And at nearly 16 years old, she still regularly pronks with the young ones!
Cooper is an even tempered bay black male with invitingly soft fiber as evidenced in his second shearing histogram: AFD 19.3; SD 4.0; CF 99.0. His dam, Lady Ginseng, was awarded Judges Choice Suri (out of 33 entries) for her spin-off entry and has won the blue in both spin-offs where her fiber was entered.
His lineage includes PPeruvian Ramilo, PVA Mahogony Prince, Peruvian Fuego and PPervuian Uribe (aka Durazno).
Since weaning he has lived with two large geldings and an intact, spirited adult male. Cooper has established himself in his subherd as the fellow no one messes with. He has done this via his attitude and demeanor alone. He has never needed to enforce his standing with physical dominance. Hes an easy male to live with for human and alpaca alike.
