Medium Silver Grey, 31708340, 1/4 Bolivian, 1/4 Chilean, 1/2 Peruvian
Desdemona is a true Socosani beauty! She has absolutely no spots of any colors on her except the solid grey blanket and white tuxedo markings. She is very dense with long staple length and soft as silk. Her fleece shows defined character and outstanding frequency. Her conformation is excellent being a well put together alpaca with straight legs, perfect bite, large bones and correct proportions. Desdemona's dam gave us a full brother last year, he sold to Mooseridge alpacas as a junior herdsire. Socosani has produced many beautiful grey and black crias over his very long breeding span.
Silverton was born on my farm. One of the last grey males sired by 5Peruvian Socosani. I kept this male because he was not only perfect in every way, he was solid grey, but most of all, he was FULL PERUVIAN. I also own his dam, Noel, she has been a stellar production female on my farm for along time. Silverton is almost the spitting image of his sire, but his fleece is a knock out. It is super fine, super long, super tight gorgeous crimp, and consistant in color with just 1 black spot on his side. He has a gorgeous top knot, thick and long. Silverton took to breeding very well, he sired 7 grey crias last summer (2015). He has moved into the #1 or #2 spot in my herdsire row. I have thoroughly tested this male with dams of all colors, not only do I get grey 99.9% of the time, I also get fine crimpy fleece....leading to the conclusion that he can improve upon most any dam you bring to him. He hs also been popular with outside breedings, and clients are waiting on at least 4 crias
Sadie is that ONE alpaca that does "meet and greet"!! When someone says they want a friendly one that gives kisses.... this is the one. THis is the one in a million, because we all know that alpacas do not actually like to be restrained or touched! Sadie was the one that went to my alpaca yoga classes EVERY night, and often cushed right up front so everyone could admire her! SHe allows total touching from head to toe... lays down at the kids feet when they come for field trips... and basically throws herself at you so that you include her in everything that is going on at the farm! You just can't get away from her. She had a gorgeous black male cria 2 years ago, sold him, and we bred her to Harley Quinn in late October, for a September 2020 cria. Sadie has very dense, crimpy, long and soft fiber. Very good conformation, but she does have alopecia , a rare form of hair disease that she was born with! In the spots where she was supposed to be black, she is hairless! Its quite weird, and interesting, and my vet took blood samples to send off to the west coast to be studied, as this may be the first alpaca to be sampled with alopecia. In any case, vet advised to breed her as normal... her first cria was 100% normal. We love this girl... it would take a lot to get her away from us!
