If you are looking for a gray female with strong gray genetics, Belle is your girl! Belle gave us a wonderful medium gray cria (Sir Marshall) this year.. and he sold shortly after he was weaned! She has fantastic genetics, and passes her density and handle and that gorgeous gray coloring.
Belle's Sire is Lejacs Larada who shows the strong gray genetic lines inherited from his sire, Sir Ivan. Larada has sired a long list of gray and black crias that have strong fleece character and are color, reserve champions, and multiple ribbon winners.
Belle's Dam is RHF Alexis - and Alexis' sire is Viper who is also well known for his gray genetics, and Alexis' Dam - Silver One has generations of gray and black color in her lineage.
Belle's fleece is a gorgeous dark silver grey and feels soft and smooth. She has a medium crimp frequency and high curvature. Belle's gray color makes for a unique natural color. Her fleece is great for hand spinners, knitters and makes beautiful finished products.
Belle has a nice square, balanced confirmation with good coverage and consistency of fleece across her blanket. Belle is slightly larger than average size (tall) with average bone size. Belle took on her first breeding, with a textbook birth. She had milk immediately and was very attentive to her cria.
Belle is sociable and gets along great with other alpacas. She is halter trained and leads easily. She is not aggressive with other females and is an all around solid foundation female.
Belle is bred to multiple award winner Starsky by Snowmass Enlightenment for September 2015 cria. Starsky's Sire is Snowmass Enlightenment-MRG (Stud Fee $4,500.00), Snowmass XXXtreme-LB, Snowmass Royal Rose-MF, Snowmass Peruvian Casanova-MRG. His mom is a Chilean import Azapa 145-MB. Azapa was retired after Starsky was born and we believe this makes him even more special.
Belle's offspring include: Sir Marshall, DSG 5/29/13 and Sir Sturgis, TB, 8/24/14, and Miss Olivia Rose, TB.
When bred to a stud who carries density with strong crimp, the propensity is that belle will produce a cria with show quality fleece, in gray or black. Belle is an easy maintenance breeding foundation female and would be a fantastic producer for any ranch wanting to add grey genetics to their herd.
