Noelle has a very sweet disposition. Our nickname for her is "Sweetie"!! We have known her since she was just 2 weeks old and purchased her when she was less than a month old. At first she was very leery of us but now we can hug and pet her plus do most anything we need to do to care for her. She is our farm's 'ambassador'!!
Her fleece is soft and crimpy with good staple length. She won a ribbon at Southern Select alpaca show in Shelbyville, TN in March of 2011.

Misty is blessed with bundles of crimpy bright white fleece and cute little pink nose as well as a very sweet disposition. She is full of energy and mischief. She loves to 'graze' with her mom, our sweet Noelle, and her patient "aunt" Precious. She loves people, loves to be petted, and loves getting treats. She is our "little farm ambassador"!!
Her grand sires are Destiny's Julius Jax and Peruvian Black Legacy. Furthermore, she has correct conformation and proudly shows her heritage.
Due to our herd reduction process, her price has been REDUCED from $8,000 to $6,000.
UPDATE #1: As of March 1, 2014, Misty is now 10 months old. She is still very friendly and extremely huggable. She loves to be near us whether we are scooping poop or putting out hay. She will run to the gate to meet us and makes a 'clucking' sound at us to let us know she wants a treat or other special attention. She will also follow us into our supply room to find more hay or in hopes of getting another treat. We are like her 'parents'!!
