Birchleaf Silken   


White, 31388184, 1/4 Bolivian, 3/4 Peruvian


Silken is the 2nd born cria to MMR Ascott and has inherited his elite fineness and great disposition. She has some exceptional genetics to pull from including, VC Peruvian Dakota, Alpamayo, Peruvian Ivano, Iceman and Peruvian Guellermo. Silkens fleece is very bright, silky with character and consistantcy into the belly and up the neck. She is a good sized female and is bred to EC Shamar for a 2013 cria.
She is only 1 0f 2 females bred to ECA Shamar for a 2012 Cria. The offspring from this genetic cross is our line of future Champions.
Silken has birthed out a very nice, super soft white female in 2013.
We have given silken a year off to breed and prove up some of our younger female.

  EC Shamar  
    White, 31534260, Full Bolivian  

We are very happy to have made a deal with Eagle Creek Alpacas for this elite young Macho. We were looking to get another Sire with HCL Bolivian Iceman genetics and got a bonus with, Acero Marka's El Alto, ARA Mario, Acero Marka's Oliver and Acero Marka's Bobby all in one. His Dam: EC Natasha Ice won Multiple Championjships including Supreme's. His Sire: ARA Mario is known for throwing fine, high density offspring. Shamar's micron at first shearing was 16.1 and is extremely bright with well defined crimp style and alignment fibres. We are thrilled to be introducing him into our ever evolving herd.

We will retire Shamar from the showring after Farm and Ranch 2013. he has proven his ability to retain his elite fleece on a robust frame.
